WTF Thursday

Hat Tip to Out of Your Element Bethie for the title of today's post.

Hat Tip to WV Gourmet for finding this monstrosity

Who mail-orders CANNED CHICKEN??? And from Amazon. Honestly, if there were some little town in central Vermont that raised Ambrosial Chickens and used their New England ingenuity to find a way to make roast chicken taste good three months after roasting and canning and started some new-economy co-op, I'd try it...after hitting the lottery.

But alas, Sweet Sue is a moniker only, and it is part of Castleberry.

And Castleberry used to be a family BBQ canning company from Georgia.

And now they have 'corporate headquarters' in San Diego.

But if you do order one of these $49.99 cans of chicken, let me know. I want to interview you and turn the tape over to the appropriate mental hygiene authorities.

[UPDATE] I don't know if this is better or worse. That's SIX (6) 50 ounce cans of whole roast chicken for $49.99. Better because it's more 'value?' Or worse because you have to figure out what to do with 6 of the buggers?

For God's sake! That is truly insane. Fifty clams for a canned chicken? You know we have to order it. I'll throw in $5, but not a penny more. Keep me posted.

I was going to say "How Redneck!" but at 50 bucks a can... "How Hippie Redneck!"

Would a double-dog-dare get you to try one?

Not after THIS and THIS and THIS.

Amy said...

I see your point.

Actually, you get six cans of chicken for $49.99, which I think is a fucking steal.

Yeah, saw that and added an update a bit ago. Agreed that it's a steal. The only question is who's stealing what from whom?
