Chew On This

I’m going out of the country for 10 days and will not be posting while I’m gone, but stay tuned for the next edition!

In the meantime, chew on this:

The FDA allows 30 insect fragments and one rodent hair per 100 grams of peanut butter* (one jar is 400-500 grams).

Worcestershire sauce, the popular steak sauce, is made from dissolved anchovies. The anchovies are soaked in vinegar until they have completely melted. The sauce contains the bones and all.

In the United States, a pound of potato chips costs two hundred times more than a pound of potatoes.

Since Hindus don’t eat beef, the McDonald’s in New Delhi makes its burgers with mutton (sheep).

Celery has “negative calories”. It takes more calories to digest a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with.

On average, it takes 345 squirts from a cow’s udder to yield one gallon of milk.

The diet now followed by the original actor who played Ronald McDonald in McDonald’s child-oriented commercials: Vegetarian.
