48 chicken nuggets, 2,256 calories, no regrets.

McDonald's in Japan is planning on offering a 48-piece chicken nugget meal. The United States currently offers a 40-piece, so maybe this doesn't seem like a big deal.

But it is. Because the largest current chicken nugget meal in Japan is a 15-piece.

From Kotaku:

Likewise, the offer is for a limited time only. It's available only in Niigata Prefecture and part of a promotional tie-up with the the newly launched pop group NGT48, the Niigata-based spin-off of the massively popular idol unit AKB48. The groups tend to have around 48 members (sometimes more, sometimes less), divided up into different teams. That's a lot of idols. That's okay, this is a lot of nuggets. Forty-eight nuggets is surely a whole chicken, no? Fifty has to be.

King Curtis is very happy with this decision.

You know how on the internet you can get away with embellishing the truth a little to make yourself sound better than you really are?

Spoiler alert: you can't. Everyone knows you're a phony, and Japanese memes are calling you out for it. Message boards like 2ch have been circulating images comparing the "online you" to the "real world you," and it ain't pretty. The next time you're thinking about lying about yourself, remember these comparisons.
