Henry County's nugget drop

800-pound plaster nugget will be lowered into a vat of faux honey mustard.

Clayton Henry County is ringing in 2009 with a deep-fried, artery-clogging bizz-ang.

From the AJC:

Truett’s Grill in McDonough will kick off 2009 tonight by dropping an 800-pound chicken nugget into a tub of honey mustard.

Chick-fil-A officials insist no chickens were harmed - the 6-foot-tall nugget is made from plaster. And the honey mustard is really just karo syrup with food coloring, but it looks like honey mustard, said Becky Ragsdale, a hostess at Truett’s Grill.

“It took six guys to lift it. It’s now hanging from a huge crane,” Ragsdale said. “Some of the other Chick-fil-A restaurants have New Year’s Eve celebrations, but we’re the only nugget drop.”
