(Slate)   McDonald's didn't invent the chicken nugget; it was actually created by a Cornell University professor who proposed the idea of a frozen chicken 1963, almost 18 years before the Golden Arches unveiled their nasty prototype   ( divider line

ZAZ: They're fish sticks with a chicken-like substance inside. I remember disliking fish sticks when I was a kid, before McDonalds started McNuggets.

Maybe you don't trust the Gorton's Fisherman, but to me, he is timeless. And breaded. And a bit bearded. Somewhat frightening actually. His loving rubbers are almost as stern as your mother's voice as she tells you that you can't go to McDonald's and that your penis will never be as large as your father's. Ahhh, good times.

Trust the Gorton's Fisherman. Because, he's been there.

chicken nuggets are a terrible frankenfood developed only a short while ago. We must ban this monstrosity. Never before have lower grade parts of meat been combined to create a food.

NutWrench: What part of the chicken is the nugget?

It's right between the "tender" and the "finger"

willfullyobscure: Croquettes have been a standard recipe since the 1800's. this is total bullshiat. Supposed to make them with two spoons. Maccas just makes them with giant factories.

I make "chicken nuggets" at home once or twice a month, it's not brain science

Is that the combination of brain surgery and rocket science? Like Brains being rocket propelled through space (and time). Or did you just fark up and combine the two on accident?

Nugget Man
by Paul & Storm

Robert C. Baker died on a Monday
We all know his work, although few knew his name
A Cornell professor who taught poultry science
Forever enshrined in the poultry Hall of Fame
84 years worth of food innovations:
Chicken dogs, turkey dogs and turkey ham
Beyond them all stands Baker's greatest creation
For Baker begat chicken nuggets for man

O, Nugget Man
O, Nugget Man
Headin' on down to that old Promised Land
Happy the meals all have been since the day
That the Nugget Man came our way

Robert C. Baker, way back in the '50s
Changed the way children and college kids eat
When he invented a way to get breading
To adhere much better to raw chicken meat
His new method led fast food chains in the '80s
To develop and market a new bite-sized snack food
Made from mechanically recovered meat and anti-foaming products
Reconstituted meat slurry and extra chicken skin for its binding properties

O, Nugget Man
O, Nugget Man
Headin' on down to that old Promised Land
Guts, feet and beaks now don't get thrown away
Since the Nugget Man came our way

The King of the Burgers is mourning with Popeye
The Colonel arranged a 21-gun salute
The Church's are silent, but for Wendy's weeping
And Ronald has hung up his big yellow clown suit

Robert C. Baker's last will was specific
That his bones be removed, and he be ground up real fine
And to place his remains into small cardboard coffins
And bury the pieces six at a time

O, Nugget Man
O, Nugget Man
Headin' on down to that old Promised Land
Dipped into his honey-mustard filled grave
We're glad the Nugget Man came our way
We're glad the Nugget Man came our way

I once met an sculptor artist that worked with chainsaws and logs. He said people often ask him how he makes a tree trunk into an lifelike eagle sculpture. He said that he starts cutting away the bits that don't look like an eagle. I hope this helps somehow.

Because Ronald McDonald puts an addictive chemical in his chicken McNuggets that makes 3 year olds crave it fortnightly, smartass!
