Meat Industry Hall of Fame and McNuggets

I just learned today that there is a MEAT INDUSTRY HALL OF FAME.  Dan Murphy and Chuck Jolley founded it in 2009, and act as Executive Director and President respectively.  Murphy is a meat industry commentator, former Vice President for the American Meat Institute, and author of the book, “The Meat of the Matter: Why Everything You Think You Know About Meat is Dead Wrong”.  Jolley is president of Jolley & Associates, a marketing and public relations firm that concentrates on the food industry.

Here is a list of the Inaugural Class of Inductees in 2009, which includes 21 members elected by the Hall of Fame’s Board of Trustees.  According to Mr. Jolley, it’s a virtual “who’s who” of the meat industry, and includes industry executives and university researchers.

Earlier this month, the Hall of Fame announced the 12 new Inductees for 2010.  The list for this year also centers on industry executives and researchers, but includes three post-mortem inductees that are particularly noteworthy.  These are: Ray Kroc, founder and chairperson of McDonald’s Corporation; Col. Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken; and Dave Thomas, founder and CEO of Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers.

In related news…The State Food and Drug Administration in China is calling for a national investigation of McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets after reports that they contain a chemical also used in Silly Putty.

    “Meat Industry Hall of Fame!” how impressive! All one has to do is take a tour of a Factory Meat Production Facility to see what really goes on. If you are not a vegetarian after that, then have another portion of kidneys. Yum Yum. Just boil the piss out of them first.

    Oh yeah, we know. Dead flesh is good for you, especially when dispatched in terror and laced with silly putty. This is totally insane—or has anyone noticed? Has total psychosis become our way of life?

    Amazing how well propaganda works for those who allow the “experts” to do their thinking for them which, unfortunately, is still the majority. And would it be that the Dead Flesh Industry is unique in this? I don’t think so.

    Let’s have an Oil Blowout Hall of Fame. Just hire some slick salesmen, buy some prime-time tee vee and it is done.
