Classy Food Ingredients


I have a thing (a bad thing) about some of the stuff that ends up in processed meats, pies, comminuted meat products (sausages and meatballs) and other similar meat based stuff. This amazement at the junk in these products hit an all time high today when someone (a Scot) gave me a large haggis.

First thing a Welshman is likely to do when a Scottish Person gives them a Haggis is fire it from a Cannon towards England.

However I took a quick look at the ingredients, notable inclusions were these..

Pigs Lungs
Pigs Connective Tissue
Pig Skin
Bovine Intestines
Lamb fat
Sodium Nitrite
Sodium Erythrobate
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil

If anyone knows a less healthy thing to stick in your pie hole let me know, this one deserves an accolade.




Big deal, here's what my microwavable meat pie from this morningg had on the back of the box:

corn syrup
deep fried plastic
moose balls
pigeon feathers
bison cock
baking soda
thawed moth
uranium 235

and that was just the crust... Shit tasted good too. If you can't handle some good ol' hearty food then there's a problem with YOU my friend.



You like hair pie then ?


When a Scotsman gives a Welshman a Haggis-

A big dumb American feller is sratching his noggin wondering what a Haggis is.


And we sit in awe at the cultural ingnorance of some americans.


Ramirez: Haggis? What is haggis?
Connor MacLeod: Sheep's stomach, stuffed with meat and barley.
Ramirez: And what do you do with it?
Connor MacLeod: You eat it.
Ramirez: How revolting!
