Mommy, Where Do McNuggets Come From?

October 4, 2010


Mechanically separated chicken THAT'S BEEN EXTRUDED INTO THE TOP OF A CARDBOARD BOX. Mmmm, start opening the BBQ packets!

There's more: because it's crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color

That's disgusting. Also, a great opportunity for me to retell my original "why did the chicken cross the road" joke. *ahem*

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To nug-get to the other side!

I don't care what you say, it's harder than you think coming up with a new chicken crossing the road joke. Now, who wants a scoop of ice cream? It's strawberry!

Thanks to Andy, cirsten, Dick and jack, who prefer pneumatically separated chicken.
