You get four McNuggets in a Happy Meal, therefore you can make 43.

You've mentioned this before...

Yes, but then you'd have 43 nuggets, a small drink, and small order of (what we call) fries, which is surely just as bad as having 1 or more extra nuggets.

Also, it's an analogy. They never really mentioned why mathematicians would care about how big or small a number you could get from adding only multiples of a small subset of number, but I don't think it's due to an obsession with Mcdonald's.
