CONSUMER COMIX PRESENTS LET THEM EAT SLIME
Hi there! I'm here from the meat industry to discuss our filler product made from connective tissue and scraps treated with ammonia. Some call it "pink slime." We prefer "lean beef trimmings." (Actual term)
Don't think of it as incredibly low-grade cow-related by-product. Think of it as "What's for lunch" -- if you're eating USDA school lunches, that is! They're about to buy 7 million pounds of the stuff, god bless 'em!
Don't worry! A George Bush Sr.-appointed USDA officer -- and former president of the National Cattlemen's Association -- once deemed it safe. So relax... and get our new cookbook! The Institute For Increasingly Abstract Notions of Meat Presents: THE SCRAPPY CHEF Cooking with "Pink Gold"
Your family will love these classic dishes, from tendon tacos to ligament lasagna, to my personal favorite, grandma's ammonia-treated meat-like balls! Mmm... mmm!
