Good evening everyone. On page 30 of the new 1342 QI Facts book there is an error.

The fact says "Because Chicken McNuggets are sold in sets of 6,9 or 20, the largest number you can't buy is 43."

Any one with children will know they sell Chicken McNuggets in 4's for children or in any happy meal for children.

This means you can buy 3 x 9 adult meals and 5 x children's size or happy meals to get to 43 Chicken McNuggets exactly. if you opt for the happy meal's you'll also get 5 toys to play with while you eat your nuggets.

Not sure if the guy writing the original fact did anything more than look at the basic menu but with 4's being available in any McDonalds in the UK, Europe and the USA the only numbers you can't individually buy are:-
1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 11, and 13.

Although why anyone would want to order 43 or more nuggets in one go is the only thing about this I don't understand.

Comments please, and I'll look forward to the re-issue of 1342 QI Facts with this one changed :)

There are many things here that I don't understand, not the least of which is why anyone would want any quantity at all of chicken McNuggets.

For 10, could one not buy a kid's portion of 4 and an adult's of 6?
