McNuggets Made with Silly Putty Chemical

This comes from the "I'm not at all surprised" category. It's come to light that McDonalds' Chicken McNuggets have an ingredient that is commonly found in -- wait for it-- Silly Putty.

Just when you thought it was safe to have those tasty little nuggets, you might also want to know that they also contain the chemical preservative tBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleum-based product.

I've always been somewhat worried about the stuff actually found in fast food, but this is just a little ridiculous!
