 文字稿//60-Year-Old Fast Food Found in Bathroom Wall

 Ew! What is that smell?
那是什麼臭味?

There is something rotten in my refrigerator. I must have left some food in
there for too long. Now the food has gone bad. Gross.
食物在冰箱放太久都腐敗了,好噁心。

Have you ever left food out for too long? It's pretty disgusting, isn't it?
Well, have you ever left food out for years?
食物放太久會腐壞,你是否曾經把食物放在外面好幾年呢?

Something like that happened to a couple named Rob and Grace in the United
States. They were redecorating their home when they found something
interesting in the wall.

Worker: "What is that?!"

It was a few bags of fast food!
美國一對夫妻整修房子的時候,在牆壁裡面發現一包速食!

It was probably left there by construction workers when the house was built.
Which means the food was about sixty years old! Ewwwww!
有可能是在蓋房子的時候,工人留下來,放了 60 年!

However, Rob said there were fries in the meal, and the fries were "still
perfectly crispy". He also said that it didn't smell at all.
不過裡面的薯條還脆脆的,也沒有發臭。

There weren't any mice or other animals that tried to eat it either.
也沒有老鼠或是其它的動物吃過。

Isn't that crazy? Greasy fast food lasts a really long time. I wonder what
they put in it?!
