I thought this was common knowledge but then again I have a cornucopia of stupid and useless facts stored up in my noggin, so I shouldn’t really be surprised that no one else on the BroBible staff was aware of why the McFlurry spoon is completely hollow at the bottom. Well, maybe they were – only JCamm and David were unaware and I’m just making sweeping generalizations, but it’s not like those two are the only ones who don’t know:

Yeah, so if you haven’t realized it’s not a fucking straw. In reality it’s used to mix the toppings and ice cream together, according to Tumblr user The Waiting Platypus:

As someone who worked at mcdonald’s i can tell you that: we fill the cup with ice cream, we dump the oreos on top, we stick the spoon in,we put the entire thing in a machine and use the spoon to stir your mcflurry.

Kind of (read: exactly) like this:

So the next time you go to McDonald’s and wonder why your McFlurry straw has a giant gaping hole at the bottom, now you can impress your friends with a stupid fact that no one really cares about. Hooray!
