McDonald's Math


The McDonald's around the corner from my office sells a six-piece box of processed Chicken McNuggets for $2.69 (plus tax). They also sell a four-piece box for $1.00 (plus tax).

Or, in other words, the canny consumer has the option of buying eight McNuggets for $2.00 or two fewer McNuggets for seventy cents more.

And people wonder why the company is having a tough time of it.


you eat at mcdonald's? you??

I once went in there and ordered two four-piece McNuggets. The cashier winked at me like I was a genius.
