DES PLAINES, IL - FEBRUARY 15: French fries sit on a table at a McDonald's restaurant February 15, 2006 in Des Plaines, Illinois. McDonald's announced February 13 that their french fries contain potential allergens from both wheat and dairy ingredients used to add flavor.

McDonald’s just posted a diagram with instructions on how to eat an entire meal ONE-HANDED.  Basically you poke a hole in the “hinge” of the sandwich container with your straw so it rests on your cup horizontally, then you dump your fries on the other side.  People on social media are skeptical.

It’s hard to eat an entire McDonald’s meal in your car without taking your hands off the wheel.  So maybe . . . MAYBE . . . this is a solution.

McDonald’s Australia posted IKEA-style instructions on Instagram a few days ago on how to eat an entire meal ONE-HANDED.

Basically, you open up the container for your burger, poke a hole in the “hinge” of the container with your straw so the container rests on your cup horizontally, then dump your fries on the other side.

So now you can put the cup in your cup holder and just use one hand to grab the sandwich and fries . . . or pick up the entire contraption when you want a drink.

It’s an interesting enough idea . . . but will it actually work?  People on social media seem pretty skeptical about a LOT of different aspects . . . from whether it will really stay balanced to whether it’s a bad idea to put hot food on your cold drink.

Fancy a one-handed meal? Simply unfold your burger box to make a fries tray, then perch it on your soft drink. Easy as. #dailynuggets #mealhack #mealonthego #maccas #imlovinit
