APE LAD has apparently tipped off BOING BOING to perhaps the strangest hobo product yet:
DICK VAN PATTEN'S HOBO CHILI FOR DOGS
It is worth clicking through to "CHEF WOOFGANG's" official website to see all four varieties of strangely, unnecessarily ETHNIC-THEMED dog food, including "Irish Stew" and "Chinese Take Out."
EACH LABEL FEATURES A PICTURE OF DICK VAN PATTEN IN REGIONAL-DOG-FOOD-APPROPRIATE-GARB and accompanied by a regionally appropriate dog.
THIS IS ALL TRUE. And you can appreciate how, for someone in my line of work, the actual veracity and non-jokeness of this product is very depressing. IT IS LITERALLY TAKING FOOD FROM MY FAMILY'S MOUTHS--and feeding it to ETHNIC DOGS.
(NB: "Italian Spaghetti with Beef in Meat Sauce" is not yet available, though I LOOK FORWARD TO ITS MEATY REDUNDANCY)
That is all.
