People who eat at the wheel are a menace. An errant drip of ketchup can be the difference between a mundane commute and a starring role in an impromptu Richard Weyman film. To help further enable the noshing pilot, someone has invented a cupholder-mounted french fry holder. This is undoubtedly a harbinger of the motoring apocalypse. Seriously folks, if your in-car fry habit is such that you require a dedicated, purpose-built mount (with an integrated ketchup tray, no less), you probably need to re-evaluate your lifestyle. In an ironic twist more delicious than a McDonalds' french fry, this contraption is sold through the Improvements catalog. We're hard pressed to determine what this improves other than the chance of a fry-related mishap at highway speeds. According to the site, it's "not available at this time," which is either cause for concern (it's completely sold out) or celebration (someone pulled the plug and stopped the madness).

      Now, if only someone would come up with the auto-commode drivers' seat, with a built in wash and wipe facility of course, there's be no need whatsoever to slow that journey down even for five minutes.

      This article made me want to go get some McDonald's french fries.

      This is way better than the alternative fry holder (one's own crotch). And is that a little ketchup repository? Holy mother, that's awesome.

      I am not a person to judge others on their lifestyle. If you want to eat fries while you drive that is up to you. This fry cup holder is genius because I can see a lot of people buying this to make it easier to eat fries. http://www.woodrum-chevy.com

      The tragedy here is that McDonald fries taste better when eating it out of the takeout-paper bag it came in.

        • 6 Years Ago
        Which is a switch because the rest of their food tastes worse than the paper bag it came in.

        Thanks, I'm here all week. Try the fries.

      funny thing is the fry holder is sold out.
      • 11 Months Ago
      Wow, that is hilarious. I had no idea that something like that even existed! I hope this isn't what my husband meant when he said he wanted truck accessories. I was hoping more for something like http://pacesettertrucktoys.com/p-9001-catalog.html .

      LMAO I want one.

      I do believe that McDonalds fries are good enough to warrant its own custom car eating appliance.
        • 6 Years Ago
        No, McDonald's fries _used_ to be great. They've started sucking now that they removed the trans fats.

        I'm firmly convinced that health nuts are out to kill everything I enjoy in life.

        Read a book called Fast Food Nation sometime, they tend to have meat and feces in the fries at most large chains. Enjoy ;) They are good though.

      I'd add a comment about this, but I'm too overweight. :(

      Do you think if I designed a pizza, chicken nugget, or possible ice cream holder, it would sell?...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Pizza is not a good car food, but I'm sure somebody might find the Chicken Nugget and ice cream version useful.

        • 6 Years Ago

        LOL! Yes, I think a steering wheel mounted, ice cream cone holder would definitively conclude the evolutionary advancement of automotive accessories.
