With "spam type products" it really doesn't matter. Lips and colons are lips and colons no matter how you label them.

This is on the wrong thread; it belongs with that "Fox News donates $10,000 to Gay Organization".....

No big deal; they found out that Arabs didn't buy it when it was labeled "pork", so they labeled it "beef".

Supply and demand, know your customer, etc., etc....

back in the 80's, the german government was trying to prop up the price of butter, so they bought a bunch of it from german farmers and shipped it to afrika. The africans relabled it margarine and shipped it back.

Oh, that was when Hell was new, in it's pre-ice ages existence. Sometime before even the banning of the greats, DITHF, and the Pool Poopie thread in the days of yore gone bye-bye...

LOL!

Mr. MD had a fondness for a certain beef stick, kind of a soft jerky flavored with tabasco. I bought them all of the time for his pleasure.

One day, I thought to read the ingredients. In them, it clearly stated BEEF LIPS!.

Beef lips LOL!

If islamics can't read the label, they get what they deserve!

BTW, Mr. MD decided he did not like those beef sticks after all..

Hmm, that tofu and bean sprout sandwich is starting to sound better all the time

Mountain oysters resemble pale sausages and are denser than you'd think -- they're easy to slice.

It's basically the pureed 'everything else' of various critters that wasn't fit to be actually seen and some spices.
It's most commonly spread on Ritz crackers or white bread.

In truth, I was amusing myself with a *very* inside joke.

I once told a friend that the hot dog he was enjoying immensely contained, among other delightful things, ground meal worm larvae and rat snouts.

[I know...I'm mean]....;]

I don't care to ponder "fluffy" though....:-P

I love tamales. I really do.

Then, once, some Mexican friends invited us over for their New Years cook-out. The tradition was/is tamales.

They cooked a PIG HEAD..in the ground..dug out all the gross stuff and put it in the Tamales!!!

I said to myself. "well you like them BEFORE you knew what they were..why not after?

I still eat tamales. But my husband will not eat those beef sticks. Go figure
