She just wants to see her name in lights.

I hate puns.

But as puns go, this is a good one.

She's got a lot of guts.

Chicken guts are gooood.

Admit it, lady, you won a year's supply of haggis. Enjoy it.

...courage, dedication, daring, pride, pluck, spirit, grit, mettle, and G-U-T-S, *guts*. Why, she's got more guts in her little finger than most of us have in our large intestine, including the colon!

I hope she doesn't have a visceral reaction.

She's got the brains to think this up, and the heart to carry through.


She has the feet to walk between places to gather and prepare the food, and the hands to perform tasks related to getting the food into her mouth.

Her eyes are on the prize, because sight is an important sense for our species.

You might say she has the nerves maintain this for as long as she wants, and in fact I can confirm that she does indeed have a healthy nervous system. Another shout out to the brain is deserved, as it is a part of this system.
 
2012-08-01 12:54:32 AM
Oh...

I hope she has the stomach for this, too. You see, the stomach is a part of the digestive system and I think it earns all of the credit it gets.

No weak knees for her. It's important when using sharp tools to not lose balance.

If you're not talking tripe, subby, she must have a lot of innard strength. But does she know everything it will entrail?

doglover: Chicken guts are gooood.


Man, you don't know how bad I miss my grandmother frying up a batch of chicken hearts, gizzards and livers.

Fortunately, my tastes for chicken innards can be satisfied by going to a local deli that has some of the best chopped liver around. And their beef tongue is excellent, too. Actually, I'd rather eat beef tongue than the best cut of steak on the whole cow.

Offal is delicious. I'm particularly partial to lamb kidney on a stick.

Aren't internal organs 50% of British cuisine in the first place? Steak and kidney pie, blood sausage - Americans prefer our pig internal organs and snouts to be decently disguised in an Oscar Meyer hot dog.

Unless you're an attractive and successful African American. Then you fry them parts up with lard and lots of butter.

How does eating at McDonalds for a year help the environment?

I did try to fricassee my own pig liver, once. I don't think I soaked it in milk for long enough, because while it tasted great going down, the overwhelming copper/blood flavor that then permeated my esophagus made it hard to continue eating.

Reasonably attractive, I'd say she's a sub-six packer.

So what? My uncle has been eating hotdogs for years now.
 
2012-08-01 07:01:46 AM
I like chicken and beef liver. I have had pig heart before. Lamb and pig neck is a great is tomato sauce.

It is more of an effort to prepare them though.
 
2012-08-01 07:05:36 AM
Domesticated aminal innards? No thanks. I'll have my roasted deer heart now, thanks.

and she's going to top off the diet with a rewarding bucket of KFC. she's anti-foodie

It's quite common all over Europe. The nobility took the more desirable cuts of meat for themselves leaving the peasants to subsist on the remainders. There are many traditional recipes using organ meats or blood, often combined with grains and other vegetable matter in order to stretch out the very limited meat supply.

Hot dogs, like any other sausages, are one good example of rendering miscellaneous bits into a meal.

Such a bad joke! I sprayed beer all over my screen, thanx.

It's almost the other way around now.

You're likely to find calf's liver, bone marrow, black pudding and other traditional, offal dishes at the higher end of the selection of restaurants in London, for example.


Black pudding is also damn tasty, any of you too squeamish to try it are missing out. Also haggis.

I thought when nobility ran shiat that the organs were the "more desirable". Could be wrong.

Is she Pennsylvania dutch? Those guys love organ meat. Beware sweetbreads when in Lancaster county. They are neither sweet, nor bread.

I don't see how eating animal guts is going to save the environment. I could see her going on a diet to drop about 50 pounds helping out a bit. Eating vegetables, whole grains, and a hell of a lot less would do it and reduce her fat butt. Not much environmental gain to my mind in her eating animal products before the stuff is used in pet food and sausage.
 
2012-08-01 08:42:57 AM
I can just imagine what her breath would smell like, not to mention the bathroom after she uses it.

A few weeks of this new diet, only a dog would want to kiss her.

Bleah!

TappingTheVein: I bet it did wonders for her cholesterol count.


Exactly. Organ meat has a lot of benefits, being cheap and full of vitamins, but it's also got way too much cholesterol to be more than an occasional part of a healthy diet. Beef tongue would be an exception; it's more like a steak in terms of nutrition. But your livers, kidneys, hearts, gizzards- those are very high in cholesterol.

Bacon isn't skin

This.

A diet that consists of nothing but guts will have consequences. Just sayin'.

In the article it says she's planning her first meal after the diet ends, which happens to be KFC. Farking delicious.
