Hello Wednesday, hello WTF!
If you tuned in last week, you may remember reference to livermush, and a livermush festival.
Perusing my grocer’s freezer, I happened upon an entire section of liver loaves and was intrigued by its neighbor named “Souse.”
Marketed as “Sassy Souse.” Upon investigation, it’s also known as head cheese. I cannot imagine a more disgusting food label than “head cheese.” I can see why they are going with “souse” instead.
It seems to contain, pork, pork tongues, pork hearts, pork skins, a bunch of carcinogenic preservatives, pickles, and wheat gluten. Fully cooked, ready to eat, a delicious sandwich meat.
Moving right along to dog balls. Neuticles (slogan: “It’s like nothing ever changed.”) are prosthetic testicle implants that you can get for your male dog when he is neutered. There are some hazy allegations that they may help the dog’s self esteem, but the main purpose seems to be the owners like the way they look, and owners who would not neuter because they want their dog to have balls, will now neuter and implant these fake balls instead.
As if that weren’t WTF enough already, they sell neuticle-related items like…earrings. Dog ball implant earrings.
Ending on a more vintage note, here’s a late 80s to early 90s crop top half t-shirt with a Jeep Wrangler-driving, pith helmet-wearing Teddy bear on African safari.
It’s a size XL and in glorious condition.
As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.
