Musical Fruit Salad

There we are, sitting at the break table, when one of my coworkers drops this gem of a line ... "My wife's been feeding pineapple to our dogs so it will make their crap taste bad."


My first comment was, "Doesn't crap already taste bad. Hasn't that very fact spawned the all-too common-phrase ... Man this tastes like crap, even those most of us have never actually made a sack of any actual feces. At least I hope most of us fall into this category.

Coworkers next response. "The pineapple is supposed to make it taste even worse. So bad a dog won't want to eat their own crap."

This is where my smart ass meter pegged out. I had a hard time trying to decide which direction to go.

I settled on asking, "Which one of you is gonna taste it to see if its working?" To which I followed with, "I don't know. A shit eating dog might be a good thing. You'd never have to scoop poop the rest of your life."

My friend didn't find either comment all that funny.

At this point a third coworker chimed in. "They sell pills for that also. My wife buys them for our dog at PetSmart."



Again, I couldn't resist. "Man I'd hate to work in their quality control," I said. "Talk about a shitty job."

This is precisely why I'm a cat person. Nothing a cat does -- nothing! -- is more disgusting than a dog eating its own crap.

Debra, yes there is something worse. Babies who eat their own crap. :/

Funny conversation, Travis.

ROFLMAO!! And quite amazing!! Have you seen Ron White on the Blue Collar comedy show talking about his dog Slugo? It is similar to this conversation. Maybe it's a Texas thing?

Actually that is how dogs get stomach parasites and worms. And then you have to pay vet bills that are as high as a pile of shit to get rid of them.

There's a pill for that? I don't believe I have ever owned a dog that would forage on it's own feces. Almost all of them would recycle their own regurgitation, but never dine on their own dump.

Maybe I don't want a dog.

The things I have learned at the break table... maybe I should be the one writing a book...

Hahahahaha
That is so weird. And might come in handy someday, like, if I'm ever on Jeopardy.
