On the one hand, she's a dumb b*tch.

OTOH, if I were a manager, I'd be concerned about what else the workers aren't paying attention to if a chicken foot ended up in a pack of breasts.

That stuff is prepacked and shipped to stores. A machine probably placed the food in the package, and another machine probably wrapped it.

dahmers love zombie: We ordered a bunch of stuff, and the kids insisted on trying the chicken feet.  The waitstaff refused to bring them to us.  Straight up "you don't want that...um, too much food for you!".  I assume they'd had less adventurous white folk accidentally order it and be mortified, and from then on there was an informal "don't sell the chicken feet dim sum to the white folk unless they ask for it in Mandarin" rule.  Oh well.  I was looking forward to trying it.


Next time, try Mountain View or the East Bay.  You should be able to get all of the chicken feet and weird baby squid you can eat.

I'm not getting it.  Are you suggesting that shooting this in it's natural environment is cruel:

But raising these in this environment and running them through a mass producing slaughter house is not cruel?
[youthvoices.net image 800x533]
Please clarify.

Well, the wild turkey there exists in nature.  The mass produced chickens, on the other hand, exist only because we grow them for food.

So, yeah, I'd say that shooting the wild turkey would be a shame, whereas killing a feed lot chicken would be a mercy.


On the off chance that you're not trolling, that is some messed up reasoning there my friend.
Let's walk through this and see if it plays out:

I'm hungry.  I go out and hunt down a mature wild turkey that has lived a fine life eating natural food and making baby turkeys.  He's dead before he hears the gunshot.  My family eats a nice lean organic bird that would have been killed in a much more violent manner by predators if I hadn't shot it.

Your hungry.  You go to the store and buy a packaged turkey that was hatched in an incubator and then after a couple of days has it's upper beak cut off so it can only eat prepared food pellets laced with antibiotics.  It then spends it's life in a windowless room packed with 10,000 other turkeys where bright lights shine 24/7 and it's denied it's natural instinct to roost and thus sleep. Your family eats an antibiotic laced freak of nature that lived a miserable and pathetic short life and wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for nancys like you who lack the skills to be self sufficient.

Shame on me for killing that wild turkey.
Kudos to you for buying that farm raised turkey.

I somewhat seriously said years ago that there ought to be a rule you're not allowed to eat any animal you haven't killed one of.  So, for example, in order to be allowed to eat beef, you must have once in your life killed a cow.

Mmmm, chicken feet in garlic...tasty, tasty dim sum.

The first time I ever saw a deer hanging after a hunt was when I made the connection between real animals and those nice, sanitary, plastic-wrapped packages in the grocery store.  "Ahhhh...that's meat."  I'm OK with it.  I am grateful that I don't have to kill and butcher animals myself, because I'm not sure I could actually do it, but I can appreciate the connection between the living thing and the food it becomes.

Well, that's my point.  They wouldn't exist if not to be killed.   They exist in an artificial world that we created because they are food.

Wild birds?  They exist because, well, just because they exist.  They exist in nature.  Their lives don't belong to us, so, to me, taking them from nature seems a bit more depressing.

Booooorn freeeee, as free as he wiiiind bloooows!

And sure, feed lot animals live horrible "lives."  But I try not to empathize too much with my food.  I already empathize with wild animals.  But with my food?  I'd have to become a vegan.

doublesecretprobation: ZOMG!!! a chicken foot!!!!  it's not like people eat those things in just about every other country....

[grecipes.s3.amazonaws.com image 800x600]


fark, the Chinese would gnaw on those things like they were candy.  Chicken's foot soup is pretty farking tasty, but I usually left the foot alone unless I was hungover.

Pickled goose foot was a little harder to get used to, since it was raw and had been pickled, so the skin was all soft and swollen.  And you were supposed to let it all dissolve in your mouth and then spit out the bones.  I managed it, but it wasn't one of my favorites.
 
2013-07-25 10:46:31 PM
Here is the thing, now that I am not making below the poverty level I no longer have to pretend that I like the crappy parts of meat, so offal is just not on my plate.  I know this means that my kids don't have the excitement of experiencing some of the traditional ethnic recipes that I ate as a child but really I would rather they experienced recipes from good ingredients and not castoffs.

In Colombia they make a caldo(broth) with the feet, head, liver, gizzard, and heart.  It is generally an appetizer but you can order a large bowl as a meal.  The bowl comes with a boiled egg floating in it.  I imagine it is a favorite of Dr. Lecters.

Mountain View has a high concentration of Asian residents, and therefore a farkload of reasonably authentic Asian restaurants.

It also has a lot less hipsters and tourists, so they're more likely to just give you what you ask for instead of assuming you'll get mad and refuse to pay.

Hell, other than the chicken heads, that almost sounds like something a Southern fella could get into :D  (Keep in mind that most chicken places around here SELL chicken livers and gizzards (literally the only two "chicken" places I know of that don't sell livers are Raising Cane's and Chick-Fil-A, and you can usually find the hearts at the store too.)

Humans have erected barriers between ourselves and nature since we first invented walls, clothes, animal domestication, and agriculture.

We thrive so well because we are outside of nature.  We create our own world, to fit our needs.

Assuming those are actual feral pigs and not javelina, I'm kind of surprised your state DFW hasn't up and classified them formally as varmints allowing no-limit no-tag hunting all year (they ARE legally classified as varmints here, and hunters not only don't need tags but are actively encouraged to kill as many as they can); hell, there's states that are actually talking about offering bounties for the things because they're so invasive and damaging to the local flora and fauna.

(If those ARE javelina as opposed to actual feral pigs, though, I can understand why there's a formal season and such.)

And yes, get a bow (or a crossbow if you're used to gun type things already). :D

Great Porn Dragon: Assuming those are actual feral pigs and not javelina, I'm kind of surprised your state DFW hasn't up and classified them formally as varmints allowing no-limit no-tag hunting all year (they ARE legally classified as varmints here, and hunters not only don't need tags but are actively encouraged to kill as many as they can); hell, there's states that are actually talking about offering bounties for the things because they're so invasive and damaging to the local flora and fauna.

(If those ARE javelina as opposed to actual feral pigs, though, I can understand why there's a formal season and such.)

And yes, get a bow (or a crossbow if you're used to gun type things already). :D


They are javelina. Considering how many there are and what a nuisance they are though, it's annoying how stingy they are with tags and the season length. I had to put up an electric fence just to keep them out of the garden and the chicken run.

Not to mention the fact that they've gotten fairly aggressive and have very little fear of people.

So, the problem is nature encroaching on your garden plot, and you aren't allowed to properly control it?

sevenpointsixtwo: So, this what it American society has come to.  Instead of grabbing one of the many employees in the store and alerting them to the issue, she unleashes her verbal diarrhea on Twitter.  I feel sorry for the poor fool that goes home to that every night.  I'd rather have the chicken foot.


I'm sure I would have taken a pic and posted it on facebook with a "LOL -- check this out! Free chicken foot to torment my kids with!!!"

I've got it under control now, but I'm not allowed to do the natural thing which would be to kill and eat the little farkers.
