"Now you think Ronald McDonald gonna go down to the basement and say, "Hey Mr. Nugget - you the bomb. We sellin' chicken faster than you can tear the bone out. So I'm gonna write my clowney a-- name on this fat-a-- check for you." S---. Man, the n---- who invented them things? Still working in the basement for regular wage, thinking of some s--- to make the fries taste better or some s--- like that. Believe."

Well, he's out of the basement now.

Mcnuggets and the mcdonalds barbecue sauce. Dont know what it is about the barbecue sauce.

he should be ground into goo, pressed into interesting shapes, breaded, and cooked. BBQ and honey on the side.

/maybe sweet and sour

His body will be served with your choice of sauce.

Despite the products, he apparently was a very brilliant person.

The executor of his estate, being familiar with the deceased's final wishes, recommends avoiding the nuggets for a few weeks.

HR Giger died today, too. Very different, though. One was a man who summoned demonic nightmares from the deepest pits of hell. The other was a painter.
 
2014-05-13 09:12:52 PM  
I was going to say, hopefully he's being mechanically separated, masticated, mixed with binders, extruded, breaded, par fired, quick frozen and shipped out in 7 pound bags....

/are mcnuggets
//even food?

Looking around the web it appears Baker actually came up with the idea of chicken nuggets and made a machine to create them. Lotman's company was the one to actually start producing them and made them feasible for McDonald's to sell. So really, they're both monsters.

Sweet and Sour >>>>> BBQ, always. Of course, it's been awhile. It's probably all just high fructose corn syrup.

Ronald was funny

At least, the actor playing him had some good comedic timing and physical comedy skills.
 
2014-05-13 09:28:04 PM  
So two creators of abhorrent abominations against god and nature died today? Fark Trifecta in play?

I'm not ashamed to admit, I farking love McDonald's Chicken McNuggets. I don't eat them often but once every six months I get a craving for them I can't ignore. Pair them with a shamrock shake and you have a meal from heaven.

/I sound fat.
//I used to be fat.

They used to have honey mustard where I am in Ontario but they dont have them anymore.  It is just not the same with the other sauces.

In accordance with his wishes, his corpse will be pureed into a gelatinous slurry, formed in four different shapes, breaded, baked and deep-frozen.  On the day of the memorial, he will be collectively deep-fried and placed under the heating lamp until time of interment.
