Fresh Stone Age Meat





I try to avoid the world of advertising on this blog. But I doubt any of you are in the market for a European refrigeration system, so I figured I'd go ahead and share a clever ad with you.

The Bosch company wanted to show just how long its cooling technology kept food fresh, so they decided to "sell" Stone Age meat. They wrapped up "dinosaur legs" and "saber-tooth fillets," and placed them in the meat aisles of supermarkets for people to discover. (Though I doubt dinosaurs were around in the Stone Age, but we won't get too nit-picky here.)

I think it would be rather fun to find something like that while browsing the ground chuck. I wonder if anyone tried to buy it.

hang on....the company name is bosch. i think that has to be significant for something.
but can you get arrested for selling "meat" from the "stone age"?
cuz that just does not seem legal to me.
but really "fresh stone age meat"? if you can consider that fresh, the id like to know what isnt fresh?
dinosaur bones?
petrified seashells?
dirt?
fossil fuels?
water?
the earth itself?
is there an expiration date on those?

check the expiration date before buying those.
and a few years back, an asian woman found an unpleasant surprise in her shrimp crackers. i know the news is out of date, i saw it on animal planet, i think.
oh yeah, the 'surprise'?
prepare your stomach...


a fried rat head!
