The Much-Maligned McNugget

with one comment


The inner beauty of a box of Chicken McNuggets. I think this is what happiness would look like if you could photograph it.

Almost anyone who knows me well, knows that I have turned many a-time to the #10 combo meal at McDonald’s for lunch. They’re neat, tidy, and with a drink and fries, are just the right amount of food for a quick meal. I give you (ta da) the Chicken McNugget combo!

Now I will admit that I’m pretty sure very few chickens have actually given their lives for these delectable little morsels of mostly additives, preservatives, grease and batter, but still, they do have a tastiness about them that keep me coming back for more.

I was gratified to see in the online NY Times today that some clever artiste has taken to making CT scans of everyday items. Here’s the article. Make sure to click through the “see more photos.” underneath the first photo. The McNugget (shown here) is #4, and Barbie, checking in at #17, is just plain scary!

It’s nice to know that the McNugget’s beauty is not just skin deep. 🙂

  1. Holy cholesterol batman! I’m afraid all i see when i look at those mcnuggets is the plaque that is sure to hit the insides of your arteries at the moment of ingestion. That whitish center surrounded by the breading, when colored that way, just looks completely unappetizing to me. Good luck to ya with that next time you order it 😉 But i did enjoy the comment that went with the big mac scan…his amusement with the lunch-hour rush placement of the pickles etc and calling the assembler a “chef” cracked me up 🙂
