Squeaky Toy Hamburger and a Fast-Food Hamburger


Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Here is a squeaky toy hamburger and a fast-food hamburger.

About a year ago, the local pet supermarket ran a special on squeaky toys. This made-in-China hamburger looked like a sure bet for our dog, Jazz, who loves squeaky toys. "Not a bad looking burger," I mused.

Jazz adored her "burger." After fifteen minutes of rigorous play, she pierced its plastic skin. We then took it away. I assume the plastic shards traveled safely through her digestive track.

Until today, this dog toy sat on our fireplace mantle. For the sake of doing a photographic comparison between an ersatz burger and a "real" burger, I purchased a Quarter Pounder with cheese from McDonald's.

I took one bite. The patty certainly tasted like beef product. It gave me a gut ache. I assume it will travel safely through my digestive track.

I'll keep you posted.
