Economics 010: I find these sorts of things to be entertaining.

At the McDonald's by my office, a 4-piece Chicken McNugget costs $1. The 6-piece costs $2.39.

That's not the first time I've seen that sort of misappropriated pricing. Once at a Burger King, the value meal cost more than buying the hamburger, fries, and Coke separately. Only about 15 cents more, but I still decided to buy the burger there and get a Coke somewhere else.

So I picked up a 20 oz. bottle of Coke from a machine, which cost me $1. It's then that I realized that I could have bought two 12 oz. cans of Coke for 50 cents each. What ever happened to bulk discount?

Anyhow, I'll be out of the office all next week. Y'all take care.
