I have names for them, too. But the filter prevents me from telling you.

Well, I guess it's good they have a sense of humor about their shiatty processed food.

/would have guessed just two, boot and amoeba

Burger King had chicken tenders shaped like Israel.
Are they still like that?

Like anyone has ever looked at a Nugget long enough to determine it has a shape.

So the giant machine that sh*ts out nuggets has four distinctly-shaped bum-holes?

Liar! You've never gotten an extra. Unless we count the deformed Siamese nuggets, which are like 1.5 nuggets.

There is the rectangle, optimal for dipping, and the round one. Of course, the article spells it out, but as a kid I used to wonder why they came in exactly four shapes, and if they used the same formula candy companies use with their fark you factor. Like starburst, skittles, or lifesavers. What? Is cherry flavor ten times more expensive than lemon flavor?

I never said I have gotten one, but I could see where it was implied.  No one has ever gotten an extra McNugget.  The very fabric of reality would rip apart.

Truly, to receive one extra nugget would create a state of grace unknown thus far. Perhaps the receiver is the next kwasitch heiderach.

No, the boot is optimal for dipping, because you can get a pile of sauce on top of the boot tip.

I got a small box of the fish nuggets a couple of weeks ago, but I left them in the bag about an hour before I got around to eating them.  They were meh, at best.  It might be critical to eat them fresh out of the fryer.

Yeah, but McNuggets are still fairly edible even when cold.  Probably some hellish trans-fat blend in the breading retaining the shape.  The fishballs didn't seem as rugged.  The bit of fish inside actually seemed to be from a real animal that mght have swam in the ocean once, so it had that going for it.  Which is nice.

McNuggets are awesome but the McChicken is the best and I haven't had McDonald's in three years,  plus I'm drunk and not sure if my posts are making sense
