The so-called "McDonald's Challenge" is a big thing on Twitter.

Could you eat what's pictured in 90 minutes or less?

It's four Double Quarter-Pounders with Cheese, two large fries, 20 McNuggets and what appear to be four large Cokes.

Maybe there's something I'm not seeing, because I think it would be easy. But then, I'm a big fatso.

Bloat caused by the Cokes' carbonation might be a problem. But McDonald's drinks contain a ton of ice. The best play might be to just chug the drinks after first eating all of the food.

It's best to eat as fast as possible. There was a big hamburger challenge (I forget how big) at the now-defunct Pittsburgh Steak Co., and the only guy who ever finished it said the secret was to eat fast and finish before your body realizes that this is a bad idea.

Never mind 90 minutes. I could finish the "McDonald's Challenge" in less than 45.

A previous version of the "McDonald's Challenge" included four Big Macs, four large fries and four milkshakes. That sounds more difficult. That's a lot of fries, and downing those milkshakes would be a long haul.
