Q & A: Don't Cry for Me, Colonel Sanders

PHUTATORIUS
Q. Why are fried chicken tenders always shaped like Argentina?


More...
A. Turns out there's no under-the-table arrangement between the Argentinian Tourist Board and the food wholesalers who cut and cobble together chicken strips for chain restaurants. There's actually (see Fig. 8) a "chicken tender" part of the chicken — detachable from the breast — and that tender just so happens to be similar in shape to the Tango Nation.

So there you go.
