Psycoholic_Slag: poot_rootbeer: davidphogan: If hunting is cruel what the fark is factory farming?

May I argue that in one of those practices, the primary goal is recreation, and in the other the primary goal is maximizing efficiency in providing people their sustenance?

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.


It's a difficult question.

fnordfocus: o'really: Why mountain view? That seems so random when sf is packed with chinese restaurants.

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.


Well thats weird reasoning. There are far more chinese in sf, and theres a huge variety of Chinese restaurants. That one spot was an anomaly in their behavior. If you are gonna go for percentage of Chinese people, why not Cupertino?

Now if you knew of a good dim sum spot in mtn view, that would be different, and I'd be glad to hear it.

vbob: balut

A balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell..
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balut_(egg)


/Filipino food


I tried to do balut. Made it thru the yolk, with feathers attached. Chickened out at the fetus :(

You'll get over it.

In one.  What a sorry biatch of a snowflake she is.


I have no issue with chicken feet (never had 'em, but they sound like glorified wings, and I like me some wings), but if something that shouldn't be in the package is in the package, and that package is  meat...uh, yeah, time to let someone know. It's kind of important that proper food safety standards are maintained, unless food poisoning sounds fun to you.

/That said, still a douche for going to  Twitter of all places instead of asking an employee to handle the problem
//And Safeway,  what the fark, don't leave that out for consumers to buy.

gaspode: This kind of thing pisses me off. People should see what they are eating and understand it. Anyone who find sa chicken foot repulsive should be a vegan or some shiat.

That said, chicken breast is expensive, feet are very cheap, and meat handling is important as people can die. It says pretty bad things about the standards in this shop, and would make me question everything packed there.. is it what it says it is, is the weight right, is the kind of dumbass who puts that in there following hygeine rules?


This. Everyone is jumping straight to the OMG STUPID biatch DONT KNOW FOOD IS ANIMALS. but something thats not supposed to be in the package being in the package speaks to lazy packaging standards. Theyve farked up this what else have they farked up? yeah wah who cares its a foot. But other worse things could have ended up in there too that could kill someone.

Winner winner, chicken foot dinner!
 
2013-07-26 02:11:29 AM
I've always considered the foot the best part. After digesting a helping of the stringy breast meat, there will inevitably be a piece stuck somewhere in my teeth...the toenails make a great toothpick.

/Bonus Slash- When barbequed, the toes will actually curl up around the rack and therefore will not fall into the fire.

Yes, but while we're speaking of science-fiction authors, let me put in a plug for  Jack McDevitt, another author of "hard" science fiction, who doesn't get the attention I think he deserves.

WTF?! IT'S A FOOT!!!

It's what that chicken stood on for a few months, in a wire cage coated in CHICKEN SHIAT. That foot was marinated in putrid chicken shiat week-after-week before being lovingly packed by Safeway with the tender chicken breasts. That foot added a unique piquant flavor of FECES to that package of bland chicken breasts. She really should expect to pay twice as much for that exotic extra flavoring.

Seriously, you farkers who eat shiat-soaked chicken feet are nuts. You might as well eat your own feces.

In other words - yes, chicken have feet, but they shiat all over their feet. I don't want their shiat-soaked feet on my dinner plate, thanks.

oh, shut your stawman up.

Producers of battery farmed animals know that the whole animal was covered in shiat, during the slaughter there was shiat everywhere, and unavoidably, all over the meat - they *gasp* WASH everything before it gets sent out. Seriously.

In many cultures that package would be considered a lucky find!

Really? You actually trust meat processors to properly sterilize the chicken appendages that spend their entire lives marinating in shiat?

Enjoy your shiat-soaked chicken toes, sucker.

"Enjoy your shiat-soaked chicken toes, sucker...."

Let me guess... you like beefburgers, eh? Hmmm... succulant all-beef patties...

So you're happy to eat cows eyelids, ears, lips and anus (technically, they're all beef!), but shy away from what are obviously cleaned chicken feet?

Ho hum!

Satanic_Hamster: If I were the Safeway manager, I'd have a promotion:
Next week, free fried chicken feet being served as samples all weekend.


Wouldn't work. Shop would just be swarmed by free-chicken-feet-seeking-Asians-people who then go home without buying anything from the shop.

Don't know what's the problem, deep-fried chicken feet are standard street food in the Philippines (nicknamed "Adidas"):

If you think that's bad, try asking for "helmet" ;-)

You can buy them by the pound in any US grocery store near an 'Asian community.' Not cheap, either.

My grandmother used to get free chicken feet from the butcher and make soup.
That was during the depression in the 30's.

JesseL: Psycoholic_Slag: JesseL: Danger Avoid Death: Psycoholic_Slag: Sid_6.7: Psycoholic_Slag: Shame on me for killing that wild turkey.
Kudos to you for buying that farm raised turkey.

Pro-tip:

If everyone who wanted a turkey went out and hunted it, there would be none left for you, no matter how much an ITG you are.

I propose to you that if everyone who wanted a turkey had to go out and hunt it, most people would cease to eat turkey.

If next you tell me I have to hunt my own bacon, I'm gonna cry.

I desperately wish I legally could hunt the little piggies constantly running through my yard.

[i100.photobucket.com image 800x600]

Ohhhh man!  Why can't you hunt those tasty little destructive bastards?  You know, there ARE ways to be all ninja about it.

Legally speaking they're big game animals that you need a tag to hunt, and I'm inside city limits (right on the edge though).

I should probably get a bow.


Crossbow, back yard shed, no one's the wiser.

Perhaps they could properly sterilize them if they intended to package them... but a foot that still has nails and skin somehow making it through the process for skinless boneless breasts?  That doesn't inspire confidence at all.  It would have to skip most of those steps, so why would any cleaning procedures be any more reliable?
Multiple things have to go wrong and no system or person noticed at the company or the store.  The packages likely have other inaccuracies, and that's bad regardless of whether it is still 'food'.  Restaurants end up in articles all the time for mislabeled foods that are still edible food - misidentified fish, beef or pork where it shouldn't be, food that isn't kosher, etc.
Also the reality just is that most of their customers won't want that, whether they are grossed out or not.  If they're buying breasts they probably want breasts - the feet are cheaper for a reason, and not nearly so common a purchase here.

ErinPac: Perhaps they could properly sterilize them if they intended to package them...


Don't people generally cook chicken before eating it? Which has a side-effect of killing any stray bacteria?

Unless raw-chicken-foot sushi has caught on while I wasn't looking.....

vsavatar: Yet another person who can't come to terms with the fact that her food was a living and breathing creature at one point.  If you can't stand the thought of eating an animal, then don't eat them.  Don't pick and choose parts and sanitize the thought that what you're eating used to be alive.


I pick and choose parts. Tripe looks revolting.

Most states consider wild hogs to be kill on site, generally don't even need a hunting license.

Though, you stated in another post you're inside city limits, so there might be some discharging of firearms problems.   Forget about a bow; get a decent crossbow.  You don't want to piss one of those things off.

Might also want to talk to the city of about what your legal options are, if they can be considered a nuisance or danger to your family.  A lot of places will get you a bit more leeway for dealing with dangerous or destructive wild animals if you ask.
