Old School Thursday: Ides of March with Dipping Sauce Edition

Today is, of course, the Ides of March - the day on which Julius Caesar was stabbed. But what else happened on this fateful day?

As it turns out, not much, except this: Today in 1980, McDonald's introduced the Chicken McNugget in the test market of Knoxville, Tennessee. And how did they test market? Well, they were rolled out to everyone in 1983 and almost 30 years later, we're still eating them. And though McDonald's doesn't publish the exact number sold each year, I feel pretty confident saying that we eat...a lot of them.

So there it is - Caesar and processed chicken. What a day.
