Um, about the soylent puppy chow...we do that in the US, now.

Have for many years used recycled meat byproducts...from the bodies of animals killed at 'humane' society and municipal animal impounds. Not to mention sick, dying and dead animals from farms and feed lots.

The bodies are picked up and rendered: fat goes to tallow works for soaps etc. bones go to fertilizer factories. flesh becomes 'meat byproducts', along with skin, cartilage etc.

So when you by name brand pet food products, you are feeding unwanted cats and dogs to your dear Fluffy and Fido.

I think that's nasty enough to eclipse anything China might send us...

aif, I tried to come up with one but they all sucked. I should have kept it simple. Usually GnR is comedy gold for me.

The Easy Bake oven thing is royally screwed up. Yikes.
