Eight what are great: Canned foods

19 May 2011

In the latest in our long-running series, we focus on eight things that are the same. This week – canned foods!

1: CHICKEN IN A CAN
It’s been a fair few years since we discovered this but we’re still scoffing ‘em down like there’s no tomorrow here at BW HQ. Nothing beats that satisfying ‘gloop’ sound when the thing falls out of its can on to the desk…

2: FISH MOUTHS
Massively underrated when it comes to ‘bits of the fish that you can eat’, the mouth is probably up there with the anus to be honest. Mmm, just look at those crunchy, pointy teeth.

3: FISH ASSHOLES
Oh, speak of the devil, it’s the piscine anus. Tuck in everyone!

4: ROASTED SCORPIONS
Yes, scorpions ARE potentially lethal (unless it’s the German rock group of the same name, who are just downright unpleasant) but one of the rules we learned in boy scouts is that ‘nothing can kill you once its been roasted’. Om nom nom…

5: ROASTED CRICKETS WITH EGGS
Of course, once you’ve dined on roasted scorpions, few things are going to compare favourably. The people at the roasted cricket company knew this, and set about jazzing up their offering with the addition of some eggs. Smart move – even if it does look like a Photoshop job.

6: BIRD’S NEST DRINK
Sure, we all love to chow down on a bird’s nest once in a while (but only after it’s been vacated by its tenants, right legal eagles?). But don’t you just wish that they’d turn that unique flavour into a beverage? Well they have so stop your moaning.

7: CHEESEBURGER
Ronald McDonald ought to be getting a case of the sweats because his domination of the cheeseburger-distribution business could soon be over. Just as DVDs and Blu-rays have threatened cinema attendances, the ease of serving up a one of these in your home will inevitably kill off that wretched burger clown forever.

8: UNICORN
Now this is DEFINITELY a Photoshop job…

    the unicorn meat was last years april fool from thinkgeek.com and prompted a lawsuit from the National Pork Board as it advertised it as the new white meat! http://thinkgeek.com/blog/2010/06/officially-our-bestever-cease.html
