Welcome to The Mister MacNugget Show, where Mister MacNugget explores the depth that one can sometimes find in the shallow end of this swimming pool we call life. On this podcast, you can expect frivolity, play, folly, mindless drivel, and all the little ditties that play in the background of our lives, presented in an offbeat manner designed to engage you in the small things that make up the larger experience of life.
Get It, Guuuurl! – Mister MacNugget 14
Of all social media platforms, Facebook has to be the worst. The vast majority of friends we have on there are people we thought we knew in real life, as opposed to a platform like Twitter, where you follow people you don’t actually know but are grouped by common interests. Following a person you know in real life isn’t all that bad, right? After all, staying in touch is a good thing, right?! In theory yes, until you get to see all of your “friend’s” emboldened political points of view they’d never utter in your actual company. Even worse….when a “friend” wants to reconnect with you only to hit you with the Pyramid Scheme Presentation that has CHANGED THEIR LIFE!!!
Come along on this journey with Mister MacNugget to explore pyramid schemes further and decide why they still exist in 2019. Get 15 of your closest friends too. We will have a party, sell some crap, vacation FOR FREE in the Bahamas!!! Oh, and did I mention quitting your day job??? You could do that too, all you need to do is listen to the Mister MacNugget Show!
Bobs and Pineapples – Mister MacNugget 13
Rituals make up a big part of our lives that we often never think of because we’re so busy doing them on auto-pilot. MacNugget has a couple rituals he’d like to share with you here on this episode of the show.
The first is his Amusement Parking hat. Being a gentleman of a certain age, the sun has a way of finding the bald spot on the back of his head, so when he goes to Kings Island, he reaches for his favorite hat. It’s a Monsters University hat he got on his trip to Walt Disney World. Interestingly, he is onto his second MU hat due to a run in with the roller coaster Diamondback and the roof of a park eatery called Potato Works.
The second ritual has to do with cleanliness. Do you use a loofah? If not, you should. They’re delightful, like a little cloud of soapy happiness, caressing your parts in the most delicate of ways. Problem with this ritual is that MacNugget’s family also use their own loofah, causing his to be pushed to the back of the bunch, which causes them all to fall each morning when he showers. Cause and effect. The name of the game.
Twitch is a fun place. People play games, and you watch. MacNugget had an interesting encounter with a Twitch streamer who said one thing in her “rules” section, but clearly meant something completely opposite of her rules in practice. He decided to educate her chat on the proper way to cut a fresh pineapple to great results!
Sit back, grab your park hat and loofah. It’s about to get weird.
The Ecto Hunt and Poop Tacos – Mister MacNugget 12
Have you ever given ASMR a try on youtube or via a podcast? Apparently it’s a whole thing now, attempting to give yourself the “tingles” or capturing the phenomenon of getting goosebumps in a bottle to be able to access when you want. The acronym stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. MacNugget thought it was just some random one-off on the internet, but it turns out there’s a huge community behind it. Who knew?
Remember Hi-C Ecto Cooler? Well, Mister MacNugget remembers a few years back, when the newest GHOSTBUSTERS movie came out, hunting for the stuff when it came back to stores in limited supply. He chronicles for you his ongoing search that summer, ultimately landing him in one of the country’s most unique grocery establishments.
Do you like the dentist? MacNugget doesn’t typically but recently found a new dentist he really likes. One he likes so much that he spoke with his assistant about the poop tacos he had for lunch at work. While numb with Novocaine.
Heavenly Bean Soup and Discontinued McDonald’s – Mister MacNugget 11
Upon smelling something heinous in the hallways at work, MacNugget was appalled to find out that not only did the ladies down the hall not think the smell was bad, they actually referred to it as “heavenly.” So heavenly, in fact, that they likened it to their favorite soup, which one typically wouldn’t refer to as smelling heavenly either. It was a real shock to the ole system in many ways, and using more than one of the senses as well.
Do you have a favorite McDonald’s menu item that, for whatever reason, was discontinued? Over the years there have been many meals that have come and gone. Many of which were delicious, and many so ill-conceived, it’s hard to imagine how they ever made the lineup in the first place (McLobster, anyone?).

Red Vines and The Suicidal Pet Fish – Mister MacNugget 10
Still utterly flabbergasted at the overwhelming mob of insane people who believe Twizzlers are better than Red Vines (delicious Red Vines), Mister MacNugget searches the web for articles defending the merits of preferring strawberry rubber to soft red licorice. The one he finds, as you will hear, makes a lacking case in defense of Twizzlers, and in some instances, the writer makes a fool of himself most likely due to the fact that there is no real defense as the superior candy is clear.
When starting this show, MacNugget started writing segments to record, but didn’t get to them last summer when originally penned. Today he shares one of his written pieces with you. This one covers a fiasco pertaining to when he brought three neon tetra pet fish home for his kids. Apparently, two of the three were not fans of their new abode and protested their move in date to their own detriment.
Enjoy the 10th episode of The Mister MacNugget Show!
Theater Snack Attack! – Mister MacNugget 9
As MacNugget continues on his quest to try to drop a few pounds, he takes to the internet to see what movie theater candy is the best option without conceding to Whole Foods dried fruit and kale chips. This time, Mrs. MacNugget joins in to add her unique perspective.
Movie Theater Candy
Upon finishing the list of the options with the most conservative amounts of sugar and saturated fat, the first couple of Nuggets take to a list of what a website writer considers to be 16 movie theater candies listed from worst to best, this time not considering healthy options at all. The little MacNuggets join in for this segment and add in their thoughts as well. A family affair indeed.
The team finishes by reading off the favorite movie theater snacks other than popcorn, as submitted by our listeners.

I Too Would Like to Grow Watermelons in My Front Yard
Before I listened to this podcast, my life had no meaning. But then I heard Andrew’s story about the neighbor who grew watermelons in her front yard, and the joy said melon has brought to his family. Now I have a purpose in life, and that purpose is to grow watermelons in my front yard. I might a Goober too, who knows?
Did the sister buy snacks?
I did. They were pricey. I took about 3 drinks of my Mr. Pib because I was terrified of going to the restroom and missing anything.
My 8 month old approves of the intro to the latest podcast! He was smiling and laughing through the voice sound effects! Keep those coming! Love the vibe and love the laugh! Keep chasing your dreams boss man! I have always said you have a voice for radio!!!
