“What’s the beef?” Well pink slime by any other name while being ammoniated don’t smell so sweet, but afterwards they say they are selling finely textured beef.
Yup, finely textured dead stuff is also what they put in dog food and it sure does not seem to hurt ‘em any.

They still eat dog food don’t they?
