I was having a conversation with an old work friend yesterday. Both of us used to be fast food addicts. There was a McDonalds underneath our workplace and we'd eat lunch there everyday.

"I can't eat that crap now," he told me. "It makes me feel like crap."

"I'm going to get some Chicken McNuggets® if anyone wants to come get some. Will probably get some sweet 'n sour sauce to go along with it idk."

While this was obviously a PR stunt designed to engage customers and their wallets, the amount of transparency still surprised us. Here are 15 of the most revealing -- and weirdest -- responses from the campaign so far.
