|*Dogs not included (although dogs might be preferable).......|
The G's aversion to eating isn't always a bad thing . . . .
Take this morning, for instance.
Our petits pois supplies running low, we'd gone to the supermarket and, whilst there, some canned hot dogs caught The B's eye.
Having learnt from the strawberries-not-included affair, I decided to take a close look at the packaging before making a decision as to whether or not to acquire said sausages.
There, printed on the label, I discovered a phrase that I suspect is going to remain with me all my days . . . .
"These hot dogs are made," it said, "using mechanically-recovered chicken. In brine."
In the trade, I believe this is known as marketing suicide.
The B's badgering ceased for a moment as, starting to feel unwell, I relayed the above information.
The G thought for a moment before a nauseous expression began to form on her face.
"Yak!" she snarled. "I'm not eating that."
For once, I couldn't disagree . . . .
