Apocalypse Grocery Store Meal Challenge: Meal Four (My Dog Eats My PR)

Posted by douggoodman on October 6, 2014 at 9:35 PM
This is it.  The final week before Dominion launches.  I'm going to challenging my gastronomical nerves every day this week leading up to the release.  I want to thank everyone who has been reading and pre-ordering my first book with Severed Press.  I am very grateful for you all, and your support has been tremendous.  For everyone else, you can still pre-order Dominion for $2.99 on Amazon.

So, today was Mad Max Monday.  And like in Mad Max, I was going to eat some dog food.  This was a popular suggestion by people. Everyone wants to see me eat dog food, apparently, and man, that's cool by me.  I'm enjoying the chance to try some new things, even if a few of them are a little hard to choke down.  :)

First off, as a reminder, here is the clip from Mad Max (Roadwarrior, one of the best films to grace cinema).

Hmmm...seems portentuous of things to come.  Here is me trying the dog food, with my quasi-blue heeler playing the role of Mad Max's dog.

Gawd, that congealed mass of dog chicken/beef/liver is gross.  I mean, gross doesn't do it justice, you know.  It is second only to the canned rutabagas in grossness level.  While I could probably live a couple of days on the beef and liver with gravy, the congealed dog food, which looked like it had juicy little bits of worms in it (it was fat, I think), just tasted...blechhh!  Nastiness amplified.  The taste is still in my mouth a half hour later.  My wife has ordered me to brush my teeth and use listerine, and I can see why.

But let's be honest, that's just damn funny cause my dog is trying to eat the dog food.

For consistency, here is what I rate dog food:

Taste:  2

Texture:  2

Smell:  3

Appearance:  3

Willingness to eat to survive the apocalypse:  Depends on the can.  I can tell you one thing is for sure, if all I had to eat was that congealed garbage, I'd be scrounging for dandelions real quick.

Dog Test:  A++++++++  Mojo, let me eat!!!

Please go pre-order Dominion if you get a chance.  It will be available in paperback and e-book on October 10.
