Guess what those words have in common!  Come on, guess!

So, it turns out that McDonald’s pretty much requires their Chicken McNuggets to be in one of those four shapes.  I always knew that McNuggets had very particular shapes and that you could count on seeing those shapes no matter what McDonald’s you purchased them from.  I hadn’t realized that there were particular names for these shapes.

Well, I’ve always known about the boot.  At least, that’s what I’ve always called it.  And it’s always been a source of amusement to me.  The rest of the shapes never really stood out that much to me.  I mean, they were just McNugget shaped.  “Ball” is a pretty common shape and so is “bell.”  And I don’t know what’s going on with “bone.”  That doesn’t look anything like a bone to me.  Apparently, that’s also the shape that has different names in different countries.  In Canada, it’s called “bow-tie.”  Um…no, it doesn’t look anything like a bow tie either.

Point on this post?  There wasn’t really one.  I just thought I’d share with you some of the inner workings of McDonald’s.  I haven’t eaten there in a really long time.  I remember liking it a lot as a child but then one day I had it again in college and I realized that it tasted fake and gross.  Can’t imagine why I used to like it.  I will give them that their food tastes the same kind of fake and gross pretty much anywhere you are in the world (not counting regional specialties).  So, if you’re nostalgic or homesick, you can count on McDonald’s.
