How about Grandpa?

This does not affect me. I only ate cat food when I was a kid.

just because its made with lamb and rice doesnt mean it tastes like lamb and rice.

I wonder how many people that are out of work or are out of retirement savings are living off this stuff.

Well, crap. Now I can't take the kids to the Korean restaurant anymore.

We here at Kibbles use only the lowest quality horse meat for "fark It! It's Just a Dog!"

I'd like to apologize to Frankie Boyle for ruining his joke.

I think dog/cat food falls under that "hmm, let's try this" category for kids. Most'll try it, say it's gross and move on. Then you have the occasional freak child that pours milk over it and treats it like cereal.

I never tried it when I was young, but I'll admit to trying sweet feed and licking a salt block.

Now I feel really bad for daring my 6 year old to eat a spoon full of canned dog food for $10.00...


/it was back in 1999
//she said it didn't taste bad
///I did give her the money

I think the danger would be getting into dog food that the dog has already gotten into.

I used to be in Little League with a guy who ate a Milk Bone for luck before every at bat. This was during the Eisenhower presidency so I am unable to report on his current condition other than to say that if he lived, he's old.

Pro tip: Pack dry dog food in your wilderness survival kit. You won't be tempted to snack on it when bored in your tent on a rainy day, but it's a damm good ration when you really *need* to eat.

Melt some cheese on it, ya pussy, it's good for your haircoat.

You know how much human food costs!?

You kids just eat enough to keep yourselves barely alive.

selling children as food, annnd misrepresenting the weight of livestock.

I admit I ate my cat's dry food a few times when I was little. It tasted...odd, but not bad.

No, the kids shouldn't eat him either.

wow, some of you are too excited to type worth a damn...ok me too


anyways, I do have a question regarding this - If there is some 'tainted' ingredients in the mix and someone eats it, how sick could they get? I wonder if anyone got mad cow* from munching some Purina?

I seem to remember a TV show or short story where somebody mistakenly served canned dogfood on crackers, thinking it was Pate. And everybody liked it!

I told a drunk friend who wanted a snack that I had some fake bacon (the Morningstar Farms vegetarian bacon) in the fridge. (I was pretty much out of food.) He somehow mixed up the dog's Beggin Strips and microwaved those. I doubt even the dog thought that smelled good.

I ended up sleeping on the couch that we had in the backyard that night.

I tried a single piece of cat food when I was a kid. Tasted terrible... I remember it being extremely salty.

The Iams beef flavor of canned cat food doesn't smell terrible, but I've never been tempted to eat it. Likely because I'm not poor or in a situation where I would think eating cat food is a good idea.
 
2010-08-09 05:32:21 PM
Those milkbone dog biscuits are pretty decent.
 
2010-08-09 05:33:32 PM
Really this is a non-story; they just didn't prepare it right. Everyone knows you're supposed to stir it into tomato sauce over heat (killing the bacteria) before serving your bolognese over pasta.

/what?

Oh God, I was helping my parents out by keeping their dog at my apartment for a weekend, and she gets a mixture of wet and dry food for dinner.

My parents have been empty nesting hardcore since I left the house permanently about 7 years ago, so they spoil the hell out of this dog. One of the things they do for her is heat up the wet food a bit. Apparently I heated it up too much, or my parents have developed some kind of immunity to it... because it smelled like ass and rancid meat.

The dog liked it, though.

/smelly story, bro.

I ate a dog treat once. It wasn't half bad, really.
The problem with it was that it left a pasty nasty substance in my mouth that no amount of beer would wash down.

Now *that* would be awesome grounds for a station-bankrupting suit. Why doesn't shiate like this ever happen to me?

/What DOES dog/cat food taste like anyway?

Dog-safe oreos. They're edible of course, but just plain WRONG. They have all the appearance and texture of oreos, but zero flavor. Cardboard. It gives a confusing perception that one has eaten a non-food item, like a dirt clod. But... it's an OREO.

Dude, that shiat was farking tasty.

Although, it might explain why I'm Republican...

Those little puffed cheese dog snacks are actually pretty good. One for you. One for you. One for me.

Though this is coming from someone who ate cellulose packing peanuts for lunch when I was dirt poh. (With a little salt, they're just like stale popcorn!)

1nsanilicious: I wonder how many people that are out of work or are out of retirement savings are living off this stuff.

But it makes its own gravy!

Nowadays they're made from starch. AFAIK, they DO have digestible caloric value, though hardly made for human consumption. No telling what chemicals might be in it. Though, if it comes down to this or the shoe leather, I'd go for the packing peanuts first.

Link (new window):
"However, they are not produced in food-safe conditions, and are not recommended for eating. Also, during the manufacturing process, the nutritional value is removed from starch-based packing peanuts. This removes edible components, such as sugars, that would otherwise attract rodents and bugs."

Hmm, guess you'd starve then.
