Farewell, Other Nugget Man

Nuggest AboundWe had been unaware until Dave Barry’s blog brought it to our attention, that Richard "Dick" Johnson passed away on Tuesday, August 28, at the age of 85. Mr. Johnson held several patents on food processing machines, including the first machine to make chicken nuggets. This marks the second great loss to the world of nuggetry in as many years.

Godspeed, nugget machine inventor; we are sure that Dr. Baker awaits you with open arms. And probably some sweet & sour sauce.

Please hold a 21-nugget salute sometime this week in the man’s honor. And maybe hum a respectful tune.

    How could you forget a guy who has a double-phallic name?

    Should we look forward to a new verse?
