I have been a big fan of McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets since I was a little lass and they first came out. Yeah, yeah, as people delight in telling me, they’re full of all sorts of horrible, awful things. As I’m not dead yet, I’m not really worried. My question is this: why is it that the McNuggets I get from almost everywhere are fine, while the ones that I get at the McDonald’s near my office are absolutely wretched by comparison? I’m talking veins, gristle, and mysterious discolorations. I’ve gone back a couple of times, in the hopes that it was a bad batch, but the result is always the same. Furthermore, the McNuggets I get at other McD’s outlets are still fine. So what gives? Does my work McDonald’s exist in some weird vortex that causes the nuggets to mutate? Or am I just imagining things?
