Not-so-golden Nuggets (get it?)

Ever since McDonald's Chicken McNuggets came on the fast-food market, jokes have circulated 'bout how McNuggets are short on chicken and long on God-knows-what.

Men's Health magazine is on the side of the joke-tellers ...

You’d think that a breaded lump of chicken would be pretty simple. Mostly, it would contain bread and chicken. But the McNugget and its peers at other fast-food restaurants are much more complicated creatures than that. The "meat" in the McNugget alone contains seven ingredients, some of which are made up of yet more ingredients. (Nope, it’s not just chicken. It’s also such nonchicken-related stuff as water, wheat starch, dextrose, safflower oil, and sodium phosphates.) The "meat" also contains something called "autolyzed yeast extract." Then add another 20 ingredients that make up the breading, and you have the industrial chemical—we mean, fast-food meal—called the McNugget.

Oh, Joe. It's nice to drop in and see that the cancer has apparently reached your brain. You've reached the dead-end for Teabaggy sorts, which is, of course...

"Nazis were liberals too! NAZIS! LIBERALS! NAZIS! LIBS! LIBS! LIBS! LIBS! LIBS! HITLER!!!!"

You've reached the end, old friend. The only place to go now is smearing feces on the walls of your little trailer cell, and wait for death to end your suffering.

And what the **** does that have to do with Chicken McNuggets?!

You've a real short attention span, and a lot of anger issues, don't you?!

I like how you've adopted a shitty '80s band as your handle, old friend. Real original!

Now that Barry Obama and his girls 'n' fellas in Congress have passed a "90-weeks of unemployment checks" plan, you're standing in high cotton these days, n'est-ce pas?!
