The Hubnugget Trio's new direction!

Updated on March 7, 2017

With our nugget-pickers team shrinking down to a mere trio we, Patty (Sci-Pi) the Kitty (RedElf) and I (Zsuzsy Bee) were concerned that the quality of nuggets being offered would stay the same top rate as before. To make sure that we would still be able to recognize and deliver the tastiest hubnuggets, we were found to be brainstorming around the pool. After a second batch of ‘zipp-e-dee-hubba-doodah’ Margarita’s we came up with this great idea. We, Patty, the kitty and I, were going to go back to school… to cooking school that is. France, Germany, Italy and the US to start with, then Greece, India, Scotland (who will be able to resist Haggis if made just right?) … Every year we would dedicate and learn about some of the world specialties.

After running our idea by Hubpages, they were really enthusiastic and thought it would be a great asset for us to train in every aspect of ‘nugget-gourmet-ing’. We got the okay to sign up for the Cordon Bleu course offered in the middle of Paris. Hubpages headquarters generously booked us a suite of rooms, you guessed right, the Paris Hilton… (what a brainless blonde had to do with our rooms I haven’t figured out yet…)

We booked our plane tickets, we packed our bags and we were off. I think Patty and Kitty included a French dictionary. I was totally exited to be able to practice my European French again which differs a bit from the mixture that is commonly used here in Canada.

Eiffel Tower here we come--- watch out Paris, the Wild-Trio is on it's way---


Meanwhile back in old Califonee-i-eh

To assure our progress Maddie, Simone and Jason the ‘Hubnugget-team-Headoffice-Big-Wigs’ were to use the hubbertise to fly in whenever there was some tasting to be done… every weekend for the duration of our oh so intense cooking course.

All three looked a little perturbed when this task was set in front of them. They really thought that this was the worst job… but there really is no limit to what the Hubpages team will do for the hubbers.

To make it official Hubpages headquarters called for a press conference, and following this major announcement, they granted Special Correspondent Ripplemaker from W-HUBN TV an exclusive live interview in the am with A.M. (Admiral Maddie), with A.J. (short for Admiral Jason) and C.S. (Commander Simone).

A.J.‘s first comment as he shrugged his shoulders in his usual ‘taking-life’s-lumps-with-dignity’ was “It’s a dirty, dirty and tough job but we will do whatever it takes to deliver an offering of just perfectly perfect hubnuggets. If this is what it will take then so be it.” He then continued on to explain “We, the Hubpages team, have had extensive training and we will grin and bare the hardships of taking a zip over to Paris week after week. We will set our personal lives on hold and check out the night clubs in Par… I meant to say... We will do this just to make sure that our three nugget-pickers Patty, RedElf and Zsuzsy have really gotten the most out of their Cordon Bleu edumacation.”

Special Correspondent Ripplemaker then asked the crucial question "What made Hubpages think that the Hubnugget-picker-team needed to go to cooking school?" After a short pause A.M. continued on “The very prestigious Cordon Bleu school of cooking has been specializing for years now on Chicken Cordon Bleu it is just a very short step to what we call nuggets... and the school has guaranteed that the nugget-picker trio will know and recognize every style, every recipe of nugget-cook-e-ring they teach.”

"All of the school worldwide will be able to add onto this new way and exciting way of recognizing a possible hub-nugget-wannabe" and then "Thank you, that is all for now, as we see the results we'll let you know more" is how C.S. finished off the interview.

A.J. was heard to whisper to A.M. “I’m hungry, when’s dinner can we leave on the hubbertise now? Will they be pairing the wine with our ‘to-taste-meals?”

A.M. and C.S., both were resigned to their fate of tasters (that used to be a dangerous job) but they seemed to be more concerned about the shopping opportunities in Paris. As Special Correspondent Ripplemaker when leaving the office observed them head to head in front of the big screened computer compiling a list of :

  • have to, have to go to shops
  • maybe’s
  • would be nice to get to


  • absolutely, if we have the time

We the Tourists in Paris!

On our afternoons and evening off from school, we spent around Paris doing the regular touristy things. The Louvre, the Champs-Élysées, naturally the Eiffel Tower, the Cathedrals on almost every street.... fantastique... Paris enchanted us all with its magic.

Then one evening I suggested that we visit the Coq d'or, a small little Jazz cellar that I knew of on Rue Sainte Martin. Everyone was enthusiastic we, Patty (Sci-Pi) with her date Ringo, RedElf the Kitty with her beau Garfield. I went solo as my heart was still lost (you thought I was going to say San Franscisco... haha, gotcha)

Guess who was jamming at the Jazz cellar... THE Swedish Chef
