Ronnie, from the webcomic Whomp!, is into chicken nuggets in a big way, literally and figuratively. One might consider it an addiction. We all have at least one. Woody is addicted to diet soda. Joseph’s old, so he’s accumulated the classics: sex and cigarettes. Renee has work. Isabel has hope. I’m sure Timmy has one by now too, but I’m not sure what it is.
I think chicken nuggets would make a pretty good currency if you didn’t think about it too hard. They’re small, so you can hold them in your hands and pockets, they smell good, and we all want currency that smells good, they can keep you warm on cold days and, best of all, you don’t need to go out to spend them when you’re hungry, you can just eat them.
If you haven’t already, spend some time reading Whomp! It’s sad dark fun.
Have a great weekend.
