Feeding Floyd: Pink Slime is Back!

From the state that decided to punish drivers with a $64/year tax for trading in their gas guzzlers for a more responsible higher MPG hybrid fuel vehicle comes this little gift for your school-age children:

Oh sure, they call it "Lean Finely Textured Beef" but remember, what it is really, is the meat scrapings off the bones of thousands of cows, mixed together and treated with ammonia, then slurried to create a product that looks like this:
This LFT beef, or ammoniated Pink Slime, is then mixed with ground beef as filler in order to "stretch" it or make it appear to be more 100% ground beef than it actually is.  This is the stuff that is fed to your kids in school and it doesn't even come up to the quality and safety standards used by fast food restaurants like McDonald's (source).

So, one more time everybody, grab your ankles and say WOO-HOO!

Thank You, Virginia!
