The 100GB Bug

Experts warned today of a new and deadly threat to our beleaguered civilization: the 100GB bug. As most people know, McDonald’s restaurant signs show the number of hamburgers the giant chain has sold. That number now stands at 99 billion burgers, or 99 Gigaburgers (GB).

“Within months or even weeks, that number will roll over to 100GB. McDonald’s signs, however, were designed years ago, when the prospect of selling one hundred billion hamburgers seemed unthinkably remote.

So the signs have only two digits. This means that, after the sale of the 100 billionth burger, McDonald’s signs will read ’00 Billion Burgers Sold’. This, experts predict, will convince the public that, in over thirty years, no McDonald’s hamburgers have ever in fact been sold.
