|How To Get A Head in Fast Food Without Really Trying|
(2/5/2003) This piece of bizarre-but-true was ripped from the headlines in late 2000.
But the story is basically true. McDonald's officials attribute the misplaced body part to "a manufacturing error." The product in question was not McDonald's popular chicken McNuggets, as later versions of the chain claim, but their short-lived "Mighty Wings." Weeks later, McDonald's discontinued Mighty Wings due to slow sales.
McDonald's is a popular subject of urban legends, boycotts, lies and other misinformation. Chain letters have a higher profile and longer life if they pick on the biggest of the big, and there is none bigger than Mickey-D's. This one is just fodder for the paranoia beast. Break this Chain!
