Pink Slime: School Lunches Just Took a Major Turn for the Worsemandycheney
Do you have a picky eater at your house? I have one, but thank goodness she’s picky in a good way. She’d rather eat home lunch than have hot lunch at school. And I’m totally cool with that especially when I read in the Huffington Post that “pink slime” beef (if you can even call it beef) will be served in school lunches.
YUMMY! When can I go to the school and have some of that? I’ve always wanted my beef to color-coordinate with my outfit!
Oh my gosh people, I’m about to throw up. I’m disturbed. Then again, I’ve been disturbed for a while, this just adds an extra layer of frosting to my cake of frustration.
Let’s break this down shall we? The article in The Huffington Post states that the ammonium hydroxide that makes the slimy beef, pink can also be used to make homemade bombs and clean your house. So, next time you’re at the stove browning up some lean beef for tacos, why not just dump a little fertilizer or cleaner to it? Your family won’t mind will they?
This pink slimy beef was rejected by Mcdonald’s and other fast food joints, but schools seem to be okay with it. There is definitely something wrong with this picture! Do we not live in 2012? How can this be allowed? That’s it, get me Mr. Jamie Oliver on the phone, I’m joining his team.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Are you okay having schools feed this slime to our kids?
