The FUNKY Chicken – It Ain’t Just a Dance

The FUNKY Chicken – It Ain’t Just a Dance

“Can You Guess What McDonald’s Food Item This Is? Say hello to mechanically separated chicken.

It’s what all fast-food chicken is made of – things like chicken nuggets and patties. In addition, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it. Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve — bones, eyes, guts, and all. It comes out looking like this…. (photo above) There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Finally, since it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color. People still eat this and feed it to their children!”

The words you just read are not mine, but those of my Facebook friend Laura Farago.  About a month ago my friend Tony mentioned something to me about some unsavory chicken story in the news; then a couple of weeks later my wife Kim said something to me, then she sends me this story on FB above…  Now, chickens are simply filthy animals form the gate, that’s just what they are.  It’s a bird — pigeons, seagulls, there are just some birds that are dirty, ducks…  That’s not to say all birds are dirty, there are a multitude of beautiful, majestic birds — the chicken is not one of them.  Despite that, chicken, duck, goose, hen, pheasant, quail, turkey, ostrich, grouse (I never even heard of grouse til’ now) and in some cultures even pigeons, are all birds that humans eat.  Answer.com/ WikiAnswers reads “Humans will eat just about any bird… there are cases in every culture of “If it has feathers, it’s edible.” Not necessarily tasty, but edible.  According to Wikipedia (funny how Wik comes up first for a lot of stuff when googling despite all their inaccuracies, but that’s another blog) Chicken McNuggets were first introduced in 1983.  I was 20, wow (also another blog) — I tried them, ok, would order them once in awhile when I went to McDonald’s IN MY TWENTIES, but they were not my snack of choice.  After a short while, I didn’t order them at all, the texture was strange and they didn’t taste great to me, it wasn’t as “good” as a burger or a filet-o-fish sandwich — at least to me.  Yet, whenever those Mickey D’s trips would come to pass, someone in the group would surely get a batch of Chicken McNugget’s.  I can still hear a voice say “Yo get me a 20 piece Chicken McNuggets” — there were times I literally gagged.  By this point they were just nasty to me, I just didn’t like them and didn’t understand how they were still so popular.

Fast forward to today… the lovely pink photo you saw above LOL and so that’s why I didn’t like them, that’s why the thought of ingesting them made me gag, it’s fu*king gross, they are nasty HELLO… Is anyone who still eats Chicken McNuggets reading this?  Do you know anybody that’s still eating Chicken McNuggets?  PLEASE SEND THEM THE LINK TO THIS BLOG!!!  Tell them, have compassion… but wait… what my FB friend Laura doesn’t mention, is that in addition to that condensed product being a combination of chicken parts, is that it’s fish too… Uh-huh, fish, more commonly known by manufacturers of the “food” as surimi.  Surimi is also known as pollock — this “fish” is the waste of other fish that’s caught on commercial fishing boats.  I learned that from my wife Kim too, who worked on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska years ago before I even knew her.  Over 3,000 miles between us, and her becoming aware of this, coincided with my disgust for the item it was being made from.  The captain of the ship told her that they sell surimi to McDonalds and make Chicken McNuggets out of it.  Hey that’s it… I have no more to add on the subject.  Live long, prosper and eat well my friends.
