THIS Is Why al-Qaeda Hates America: Gourmet Dog Food

You know how when you watch the news and see a story about al-Qaeda and they're always out in the streets chanting, "Death to America?" Did you ever wonder, "Gosh, what's their problem? Why do they hate us so much?"

It's because of things like this.

This is a cooler full of upscale gourmet dog foods located in the pet food aisle of my local grocery store (Please excuse the horrible cell phone photo). You won't find any "Ol' Roy" brand dog food in this cooler! Only the finest choice cuts of meat are stored here, chilled to perfection in the temperature controlled display case.

I love dogs as much or more than the next person, but even I have to admit this seems a little much. Especially in an economy where some estimates place the number of Americans using Food Stamps at 20%. I'd normally make a joke at this point, but that statistic is just too depressing.

By the way, it appeared that this cooler contains only high-end dog foods. I didn't see any cat food in it, nor did I see a corresponding gourmet cat food cooler, so as far as this store is concerned, all you cat lovers can go screw yourselves.

  1. The first time I saw it I thought the store had mistakenly placed some sort of deli-case in the dog food aisle. Then I looked closer and saw what was inside it.

    As I said, I love dogs, but let's be realistic. It always floors me when people buy gourmet food for their dogs-- you know, their dogs that drink out of the toilet and eat their own doody.
