I debated for quite a while whether to post this in 'General Conspiracies' or the 'Rant' forum. In the end, I think it fits better here. So, here's the deal...

I am of the firm belief that mankind, as we know it would cease to exist if there were no chicken nuggets. Civilization would collapse.

Children today do not want any food other than chicken nuggets / tenders. They won't eat if they can't eat these food items. By "children" I mean kids under about 10 years old (maybe 8). If the entire planet stopped selling chicken nuggets, the Earth, Universe and everythng we know would just IMPLODE!

Kids don't want to eat, and the only thing parents can feed them (which they will eat without objection) is chicken nuggets...that's ALL they will eat.

I'm sorry when I was a kid there were no chicken nuggets, and when there were from some golden arch place...we still didn't eat chicken nuggets.

In some respects, I actually like chicken nuggets, but I hate them all over again every time I go to a place like McNasty's. The ONLY thing kids want is mcnuggets...that's all they ever want. It just stuns me, and so I started thinking about the implications on society if they didn't exist. My conclusion was; life on Earth as we know it, in modern society, would collapse in total...

...if there were now chicken nuggets / tenders.

Sorry, but that's what I see.

It's not the nuggets.... It's the Macaroni and Cheese.

Beware the mac and cheese.

Oh yeah, Mac & cheese is another one for sure, but chicken nuggets are easier. Yep, given the choice I think every child in the developed world world would opt for chicken nuggets and mac & cheese if they could get away with it.

When I was a kid it was things like a nice dinner with vegetables, a meat, a starch and rarely ever desert.

Now kids will just go off the deep end if there's no chicken nuggets or mac & cheese.

I often wonder if they contain any chicken at all (because everything tastes like chicken, as many will attest).

I guess mention of other animals as a source of the "meat" would sour their sales a fair bit.

Pretty good thread for the record..Bumped.

I grew up on Mystery Meat and other things that could
be economically stretched like June Bug Stew (there
were a lot of kidney beans in that hamburger helpless).

But nowdays, and with the things they do to make
industrial chickens grow faster/make more money...
I'll try another handful of those foul (no typo) when the
Research department can describe the compounds that
hold those macroscopic byproducts together .
Until then just shoot me.

I got lucky and was able to stay at home so my daughter will eat almost anything home cooked and prefers it to fast food. She's always eaten that way because I have always cooked. But I agree... Kids don't eat anything good these days. I think a lot of it stems from both parents working and not having time to cook food so they opt for fast food. Of course, some of them are also lazy and/or share those eating habits themselves.

I heard not long ago that Mc'D's nuggets had silicone in them. Im not sure how true that is though.

Take a ship load of bird flu chicken...let sit in bleach/ammonia 14 days rinse...add chicken flavor, meat glue to bind all, form and walla!




U.S. Meat Chicken treated with Ammonia Bleach Chlorine and more concerning processes





As if to make matters worse, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced recently that it would no longer ban processed chicken imports from four Chinese poultry processors. Prevoiusly, chickens were raised then killed in the States, shipped to China to be processed, and then shipped back to the U.S. to be implemented into fast food and pet food products.

"China does not have the best track record for food safety," The New York Times notes, "and its chicken products in particular have raised questions."

Along with removing the ban, the USDA may be in the process of replacing USDA inspectors on U.S. chicken processing lines with poultry company employees themselves. Although this may seem questionable, the USDA believes these changes, if implemented properly, "would enable [USDA inspectors] to better fulfill our food safety mission."

i have a 17 year old that is still about the same way. He used to eat mostly proteins. Now he eats mostly crap. The only way to lure him home is with hot pockets.

Im a hell of a cook, and spare no effort every single night in the kitchen. The food I make would do well on the menu in "fine dining" establishments. But he eats Taco Bell, or chips and a hot dog from 7/11 instead.

I was somewhat that way but raised in the south I remember my dad picking me up from daycare and saying "We are going to Bojangles just look watch..." then he'd turn the other way and I'd start crying. I honestly don't know why I enjoyed the fast food so much my mother cooked very good meals healthy to ( I almost never had white bread or anything unhealthy till I could drive at 17 ).

Now as I sit here at 26 I haven't had chicken nuggets or tenders in about 2 years or so. Partially because I don't like spending extra money on the fast food or that processed stuff and I'm trying to get healthier. Now if we are talking pizza I could eat that stuff pretty much every day.

SeaWorthy thanks for the video as an ex mcy ds employee i had a hint not to eat that, im glad i did follow my instincts well maybe not just instinct but anyway thats a whole other thing. on topic i never fed my kids or let the ex feed them from there we always cooked at home and tried to make it good, not easy to do with a 6 and 4 yo but it worked at times. home fried chicken puts those little chicken nuggets to shame if you ask me

But, given the choice, you may have opted for the nuggets as well.

You will never know.

I cannot understand why my 3 year old does not like chicken nuggets.

That's how it was for me. Hardly ever ate any desert. My wife, who is a whole lot younger than me eats ice cream every night without fail. And our five year old eats almost exclusively - you guessed it - chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese. There's a frozen dinner the wife picks up that has that and a brownie. I think my boy eats that every day.

My 20 month old won't eat any meat at all though. Just yogurt, mac and cheese, pizza, oh, and ice cream.

I must have a peculiar daughter then...

She'll pick fish fingers over nuggets 9 times out of 10, ask her for her favourite foods and you're more likely to hear "broccoli", "meatballs" (daddy's home made ones), "raw mushrooms" or even "gherkins".

She's 4 years old this weekend

Back in about 1985 PN (pre-nugget), The Johnny Carson Show featured a really long skit about something like this.
It was a parody of the JAMES BOND flicks.

The Premise was that an Evil Genius was going to take over the United States by starving us out.
His method was straightforward, To Buy, redirect, or destroy ALL the sesame seeds on the Planet!
The logic? No Sesame Seeds means no proper buns, no buns means no burgers. Without burgers there would be panic in the streets, starvation on a gigantic scale. Then he would swoop in and take us over in our weakened state.
Good plan Right?
Of course Johnny Carson's Character would save the day in the end.


I wish I could find video of this…Anyone remember the skit? it was very funny..

My point is…You are not far off in your idea!

Now consider this...thanks to the new trade agreement American chickens can now be further processed in China and still have a U.S.A. label on those nuggets.
How that's even financially productive, I can't even suss out. But when the chicken processing plants here all shutter up, we'll be that much more dependent on China.

If you have several generations of kids addicted to nuggets and other crappy Chinese made products, there's no war with China, no matter what they do.

Chicken nuggets have been around since the 1940's. However, they were part of a government black project (operation "cluckbook") and were not released to the public until the PTB thought we were "ready".

The "new" snack/junk food we see today is at least 20-30 years obsolete. What they have in store for us in the future would blow your mind!
