    When we in the meat dept. at the grocery store the other day when I noticed a package of chicken feet labeled as "chicken PAWS". I try to avoid looking at those packages, but I was looking for a few good-sized packages of wings and well, there they were. (I'm silly, I know [​IMG] )
    I can't believe they labeled em paws. Sounds like somebody is a little too far removed from the farm.
    DH says they probably labeled em like that because paws sounds better than feet. I say you can look at the package and clealy see that they are FEET. [​IMG]

    I guess they were referring to the pad on the bottom of the feet as a "paw"?!?!? Not sure but thats a new one on me [​IMG] Here they just call them "chicken feet"

    Seen one of those yesterday in the meat section and they also had the heart right below the tongue. I almost asked the meat manager (a friend of mine) if he was planning on putting the cow back in order in the meat section [​IMG] you know tongue, heart, liver, etc. [​IMG] Like a big meat puzzle

    How do I say this in a nice way? I think it has to do with the demograhics of the town. [​IMG]

    Oh goodness gracious, what an awful memory. You just had to bring it up. To this day I feel like gagging when I remember that weekly dinner.
