Fish Bad

If you're the kind of person who eats supermarket sushi you are probably not particularly concerned about things like "quality" or "cleanliness" or "safety," so this article on "tuna scrape" will have no effect on you. The rest of you might be slightly more upset about. While we're on the subject: it's meat glue! [Via]

I guess we know what's going to end up happening with all of the unaccounted-for dead baby pills out there.

"I once visited an Alaskan salmon packing plant and asked what happened to the delicious looking meat between the bones. The answer: pet food. (Lucky cats.)"

I'd really like to know more about what this stuff actually is. I've come to appreciate Eastern culinary applications of the "use all the fish" mentality in the form of delicious kamaboko and other surimi – think, essentially, cured fish loaf or even "fish sausage" as it is sometimes unfortunately termed. But if Americans are willing to pay actual dollars to eat raw fish slurry as "sushi," damn, that's on them. Our culinary education has a long way to go.

That does it. Nothing but fried-chicken-and-waffle ice cream for me from now on.

Whereas if you're the kind of person who consumes only high-quality restaurant sushi, then your genitalia are functionally insufficient and objectionable to look at.
