Corey Dunkin, 30, a web developer and illustrator from Sydney, Australia, likes McDonald's chicken McNuggets, and is making plans to go get some. Of course, to get the full McDonald's experience, he decided to make a Facebook event and invite all of his friends. The event is called "I'm going to go get some Chicken McNuggets®," takes place on Friday, October 6th, and has nearly 5,000 people saying they'll be in attendance.
To me, it's such a non-event. Like, to make an event like that, is stupid, so I just thought it was funny. I had put it up ages ago, and got no notifications, no traction. Then I think around Tuesday, I noticed I had like 70 notifications, and I checked and [the event] was flooded.
Dunkin is only expecting a small fraction of the people who have RSVP'd to actually attend:
Hopefully it's an okay turnout. I have no idea what to do except to eat nuggets and then leave.
