McDonald's Now Serving Free Take-Out Scorpion With Breakfast

Science teacher Jeff Tallman in Arizona ordered an egg McMuffin yesterday morning, and it apparently included a side he didn’t order. Not hash browns: a baby scorpion.

“We wanted to stay away from it. So, I stapled the bag up — saved it as evidence I guess,” said Mackenzie Handel, one of Tallman’s students.

Handel said he went to pick up the egg McMuffins for himself and the teacher from the McDonald’s at Arizona Avenue and Ray Road.

“Oh, it freaked me out! I was like scared, cuz I don’t like those things,” said Handel.

McDonald’s points out that it’s possible the scorpion may have come from inside the student’s car, but no one was stung, no one wants to sue, and they’re happy to refund the cost of the McMuffins.
