And they say there's no such thing as a free lunch!


A group of Australian friends uploaded a video of themselves getting just that, though: They figured out how to trick a McDonald's self-service machine into giving them a free burger.

A video the friends uploaded to YouTube shows that they selected the $1 hamburger option from the menu and asked for 10 of them.

"We'll have ten of these and we'll customize them so we don't want a regular beef patty so that takes $1.10 off our order, off our dollar hamburger," said a voice behind the camera.

The group then added one regular hamburger to the order.

"10 pattyless burgers, one regular hamburger, oh we get our discounts, that's pretty good," the voice says.

Removing the the hamburger patty from each sandwich discounts $1.10 from each burger. Because the hamburgers themselves only cost $1, this gives them a 10 cents credit for each burger. Do this 10 times, and they get a $1 credit on their order.

The group's cameraman selects a $1 hamburger with the patty and adds that to his cart, a move that leaves him with one free burger.

The group shows off their bounty at the end of the video.

A genius move? Or too much work? It's certainly gotten people intrigued, that's for sure.



Others were just bummed that this only works in Australia.


Still others felt that McDonald's should pay them for the free QA they had just provided.



Sounds about right.

Hilarious moments are blind to timing. They seem to strike at the absolute worst times, when laughing would be completely inappropriate.

Working with dogs is a field like few others. Though a job at a veterinary clinic, animal shelter, or training class may have its moments of tragedy and frustration, the unique hilarity that dogs bring is a real treat.

We're all aware television shows are fake and, heck, even the ones pretending to be real have a certain level of fabrication permeating throughout. That's not why we watch, though, we watch because we want to be invested into believing in a show's characters and their journeys. So when a character is mysteriously removed from a show with zero explanation it can leave a bad taste in our mouths that never goes away.

There's something quite wonderful about finding a loophole and taking advantage of it... especially when you're broke. (Trust me, it could mean the difference between surviving and well, not.)

When I was really poor, for example, I used to go to a Burger King to get cheap burgers with what little money I had. The food was filling and helped tide me over. I eventually found a glitch on the app that allowed me to add two extra burgers to my order. Trust me, it saved me on my worst days. (As you can imagine, I am really sick of fast food now that I'm much more financially stable.)

After Redditor Thym3Travr asked the online community, "What loophole did you exploit mercilessly?" people shared their stories.
