This episode of mass business fraud reminds me yet again of how awesome everything could be if we just had less regulation.

If they actually taste like beef pies I want to market them to the vegetarian market.  It would be perfectly perverse but not unexpected that a swindler of some sort would manage counterfeit meat that would pass a taste test when no one else ever has

Great Porn Dragon: ElFugawz: Scotland concerned that haggis is not as gross as it should be.

Dude, considering some of the stuff that Iceland embraces as a national foodstuff, haggis seems like a nice cosmopolitan Scottish take on scrapple in comparison.  (Hell, even lutefisk seems appetising in comparison, and lutefisk is fish that has been set in lye to the point it's turned into fish soap.  Surstromming is edible in comparison, and that's literally fish that has been left to "ferment" into the beginning stages of fish sauce and then canned whilst still bubbling--and ages further in cans that bulge enough that you get the real impression you'll die of botulism if you eat it if the smell doesn't kill you first.  It's still not hákarl, which is basking shark left to literally rot for months to literally rot the piss out of its flesh so it doesn't kill you when you eat it, and then hanged and left to rot further until it develops a crust covering what is probably INTENDED to be some sort of shark jerky but in fact is a crime against cuisine.)

/I like fish sauce, have Asian taste buds, but still have to agree with Denmark in this comic that most Viking-descended countries do horrifying things to fish


One wonders about the necessity of parentheses when they surround the whole paragraph ;)

/ I do love that particular SATW comic, lol

GAT_00: This episode of mass business fraud reminds me yet again of how awesome everything could be if we just had less regulation.


Of course we know just how great things were with no regulation or inspection of food - the early industrial period gave us oodles of examples - like the raspberry jam that was made from nothing of the sort, and indeed to make it seem authentic it had lots of hand carved bits of wood added to fake the pips among other things. Or the use of lead citrate (a poison) to make watered down milk seem creamy (oddly enough watered down milk is now generally more popular than unadulterated). Or using up to a quarter sawdust to bulk up flour when making bread, etc.

And the idea that things would be any better now is a joke when you consider how far companies are willing to go still - like buying "connective tissue" so you can mix it with your meat right up to the legal limit for the amount of connective tissue allowed in your product type, or injecting water into chicken breasts before freezing them, or breeding fruit and vegetables to be smaller when they tend to be sold per unit rather than by weight, etc.

You'll be given meat
You'll be taken care of
You'll be given meat
You have to trust it
Maybe not from the sources
You have poured yours
Maybe not from the directions
You are staring at
Twist your head around
It's all around you
All is full of horse
All around you
All is full of horse
You just ain't receiving
All is full of horse
Your phone is off the hook
All is full of horse
Your doors are all shut
All is full of horse!
All is full of horse
All is full of horse
All is full of horse
All is full of horse
All is full of horse


I will pig out
'Til my thighs are stuffed
in bubbly meat process
I will put a pie in my mouth
and leap out of the refrigerator
Alive with open mouth
to dine against darkness

whisper whisper

SCREAM!!!!

I find this not surprising since horse meat is on the menu there and is considered a national delicacy.

/I had the horse it was good.
//Also ate the whale... Which was delicious.

I remember looking on the side of my wife's 'Strawberries and Cream' oatmeal packet.

"You know those aren't strawberries... they're dried apples with red dye."

"Aw..."

"So are the peaches in the 'Peaches and Cream'."

"So, the blueberries are apples, too?"

"No... prunes"

/ true story, look at pack of oatmeal
