Phillip Thomas and Chicken McNuggets

Two Redskins rookies — Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo — did a Google Hangout with some fans and media members on Thursday. Early in the discussion, while Rambo was talking about what it was like to live with Thomas, the topic turned to fast food.

Rambo: Just being his roommate at our hotel room, that guy loves to eat. Every time I see him, he’s got something in front of him, eating. Chinese food, soul food. One day we went to Wells Fargo to handle some business, and he told the driver he wanted to go to McDonald’s. That guy always has to eat. He loves food.

Tarik El-Bashir: Can I suggest the Taco Bell over in Ashburn Farm? That’s kind of an inside joke, but I’m known for eating a lot of tacos.

Rambo: I love soft tacos, too!

Rich Campbell: Phillip, what do you get at McDonald’s when you go there?

Thomas: McNuggets.

Rambo: A 40-piece.

A 40-piece! Somehow, the discussion then moved on, without anyone asking whether Rambo was or was not joking. One man could not really order a 40-piece, right? Do those even exist? Extrapolating from the 20-piece, which is detailed on the McDonald’s nutritional facts, a 40-piece would have 1880 calories, 118 grams of fat and 3600 milligrams of sodium. I’m going to assume this was a joke.

Anyhow, at the end of the Hangout, everyone said goodbye.

“Phillip, let’s go get a 40-piece,” Thomas then called out.
