Nugget Man

(YouTube Link)

A song by Paul and Storm, memorializing Robert C. Baker, the genius who invented the chicken nugget. The first verse:

Robert C. Baker died on a Monday
We all know his work, although few knew his name
A Cornell professor who taught poultry science
Forever enshrined in the poultry Hall of Fame
84 years worth of food innovations:
Chicken dogs, turkey dogs and turkey ham
Beyond them all stands Baker’s greatest creation
For Baker begat chicken nuggets for man

O, Nugget Man
O, Nugget Man
Headin’ on down to that old Promised Land
Happy the meals all have been since the day
That the Nugget Man came our way
