It's the dog food Paul Newman eats!*

OK, I cracked up when I saw this on the shelf, but I bought one and now it's Freddie's favorite.

In a comment about the mad-cow post below, the Fanactic Cook asks: "And did I hear said this mad cow was sold as pet food?"

Yes, says the New York Times.

Freddie, it looks like you'll be eating organic dog food from now on.

*There's a very indirect Firesign Theatre reference here. Anyone who gets it will be awarded my undying admiration.

Is the reference an oblique one to the "tastes like dog shit" bit?

I've never seen any of the Billy Jack films.

And we have a winner.

Firesign's "In the Next World, You're on Your Own" features "Billy Jack Dog Food--the kind Billy Jack eats!"

When I was last in the pet-food store, I noticed a brand called Bil-Jac dog food. I wonder if the Firesign troupe saw it and got the idea for the Billy Jack bit. The brand has been around since the 1950s, though I never saw it before.

Hey, nutjob. You. They guy who keeps running Google searches for for "Bil-Jac" dog food, and then leaving the same screed over and over again, that you also post in other comment threads.

I'm shutting off comments because of you.

Deal with it.
