Food glorifies Allah while being eaten

Volume 4, Book 56, Number 779:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
We used to consider miracles as Allah's Blessings, but you people consider them to be a warning. Once we were with Allah's Apostle on a journey, and we ran short of water. He said, "Bring the water remaining with you." The people brought a utensil containing a little water. He placed his hand in it and said, "Come to the blessed water, and the Blessing is from Allah." I saw the water flowing from among the fingers of Allah's Apostle , and no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying Allah, when it was being eaten (by him).
1) Was Mohammad the original Ronald McDonald?
a) Did Mohammad create the happy meal?
b) When Mohammad ate his food, would he sing "Do you believe in magic, and I hope you do. You'll always have a friend wearing big red shoes?"
c) Was Mohammad eating Arabian McNugget Buddies?
2) Why was the food prostrating Allah for being eaten?
a) Isn't the food already dead?
b) Could the food actually be the forefather of McNugget Buddies?
3) When the food was prostrating Allah, was it doing it properly by facing Mecca?
a) Did it know that once it was transformed into Mohammad's poo, it would never face the Qibla?
b) Or would it face the Qibla through a screen?
c) Or more importantly, would it come out of Mohammad viewed by some of Mohammad's followers, and ultimately, being the inanimate object it was originally, prostrate itself again as a different form?
4) Was the food prostrating itself because it could not only be eaten by Mohammad, but by Jinns?
5) Did Bukhari include this to show that food can be magical?
a) Or did he include this to show that Allah's Apostle used to eat magical food?
