STILL IN THE BASEMENT OF MCDONALD'S



There's a bit from the Wire wherein D'Angelo Barksdale and two of his colleagues chat about the origins of the McNugget: "Ay, Mr. Nugget, you the bomb. We sellin' chicken faster than you can tear the bone out!"

Instead of being in the basement of the Golden Arches, the actual inventor of the chicken nugget was Robert Baker, a professor at Cornell University.  While Mickey D's patented the McNugget in the late 70s, Baker had published an academic paper about his nugget in the 50s.  No word on whether Ronald McDonald wrote his clowny-ass name on a fat-ass check for Baker.
