Trader Joe’s hawks bull penis chew treats


Haven’t posted for a bit, and I figured I’d share this afternoon’s moment of levity at the office with you all. My co-worker & I sometimes walk around the block to Trader Joe’s on Market St. when we want to something quick & “healthy” (note quotes) for lunch and today she came back with a braided rawhide treat (see image) for her leetle pwecious doggie dog. As she was brandishing it around like a sword, I grabbed it and shrieked with laughter as I read the label: “INGREDIENTS: Steer pizzle.” Yes, pizzle is indeed consumer-goods-marketing-speak for dong, johnson, peter, peepee, etc. After googling pizzle, it seems a few people have been enlightened about the doggie treat’s true source. I particularly love this comment:

“Anonymous said…
I also was in Trader Joes and was going to buy the steer pizzle but didnt. I wanted to find out what it was first. After I did my husband said he doesnt want the dogs chewing on dicks.
4:39 PM”

My co-worker & I are still drying our tears from the excessive giggling.

    This is so disturbing it is amusing…but still disturbing. Poor doggies.

    Who knew there was that much excess steer pizzle in the world!
