4 in 10 people admit to taste-testing their pet’s food

There used to be a cheap cat food called Kozy Kitten that smelled so bad when you opened the can. I can't imagine a human "taste testing" it. I do remember that there being a story about seniors resorting to eating Alpo dog food.

Why taste it or why (in heaven's name) admit that you tasted it...

So, the other six have no pets?

It was good enough for the Road Warrior.

The brewery where I hang out is very dog-friendly, and has these big dog biscuits available. I don't know what brand they are. But one night, a friend decided to try one himself. He liked it. A couple of the other friends present tried it, too. They liked it.

I haven't reached that point yet myself....

How many leave messages at the fire hydrant ?

Why would I try fish or reptile food? I don't assume they have the same taste preferences as humans. And I prefer food that doesn't wriggle.

I have to worry about the mental condition of the scientists who thought up this study, then proceed to actually do it.

Frank, that's what starving graduate students are for.

The purpose of all research is to secure funding for further research.

“I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my dog at Walmart and standing in line at the check out.

“A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

“On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting the Purina Diet again although I probably shouldn’t because I’d ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

“I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

“I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.

“Horrified, she asked if I’d ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned by the dog food. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle’s ass and a car hit me!”

Thanks! I’ll be here all week. Please tip your waitstaff generously!
