I'd be pissed too! I'm no hater of the McNut.

For those of you who know me (and, lets face it, that's everyone that looks at my blog because I'm not funny enough to be read widespread....yet), you know that I am a lover of all things greasy and delicious. I especially love my McDonald's (then Del Taco, Wendy's, and and Sonic). Favorite things on the menu? McDouble, BigMac, and the delicious crispy and perfectly seasoned McNuggets with BBQ AND Sweet N Sour sauce. I normally order my McDouble and fries, good ol' dollar menu cheapness. But, when I really want to spoil myself I go for that never dissapointing and always yumtastic McNugget meal.

So, when I saw the MSNBC report on a lady who called 911 three times about McNuggets, I had to read on. Apparently, she called 911 because the McDonalds she was at was out of McNuggets. Unreasonable? I THINK NOT!!! Actually, it goes on the say she called because they wouldn't refund her money because they were out of her menu choice, but that isn't what the media focused on, and it isn't what I am going to focus on. Let me break it down for you.

Goodman told WPBF News 25 that she didn't "have a right to jump across the counter and snatch" the money, so she chose to handle it another way.

Oh contrare! If somebody denies your inalienable right to McNuggets, you must react with all the force allotted to you. Our Founding Father's would expect nothing less.

"I think it's wrong, because like I said, it's not about no chicken nugget meal," Goodman said. "If everybody listen(s) to the news, they'll understand my statement that McDonald's took my money. They didn't have any chicken nuggets, and so I asked for my (money) back."

The 10-piece chicken McNuggets meal is valued at $3.49.

Bull Shizzit!! Sorry, had to call it...I wonder if they now have to pick up the whole pile of cards...Sorry, I digressed. PLEASE tell me in which State I can purchase a McNugget meal for $3.49 and I will be moving there ASAP. Here, it's about $5. 89. I'm just saying, maybe they should check their sources. And in case they meant what it is valued to McDonald's, before markup, that's retarded. We care about what it cost the customer, not the establishment!

"When you feel that you've been mistreated or misused or robbed out of your money, you have the right to call 911," Goodman said. "That's the purpose of 911, so I thought."

Hmmm....thought wrong. Honestly, I have no idea where she got that idea. However, no McNuggets IS an emergency. She's not being mistreat or robbed out of her money...she's being denied human rights. Man, I should be her lawyer.

In conclusion, I believe MSNBC has grossly miscalculated the price of a McNugget meal. And no McDonalds should ever run out of McNuggets. This article makes me wonder "What has this world come to?" I don't know about the rest of you, but a life without McNuggets is not a life at all.
