Fo' Shizzle, Texas AG Sues Over Pizzle (i.e., Bull Penis)
Hair Balls has always believed there are two kinds of people in the world: those who like to gnaw on a delicious slab of bull-cock (aka "pizzle"), and those who believe bull penis only belongs in dog treats. The Texas Attorney General is suing an Austin supermarket, alleging that the manager and employees breached the sacred divider between these two worlds by trying to pass off bull dick as notbull dick.
KXAN reports that the suit says the manager and several employees of the MT Supermarket on North Lamar allegedly sold "non-inspected, adulterated and misbranded beef pizzle as human food."
From KXAN: "The suit alleges a manager and employees [at] the supermarket took the pizzle from boxes 'labeled inedible beef, not intended for use as human food,' and repackaged pizzle in consumer size packages, then labeled the pizzle as human food.'"
The Texas AG's Office is asking for $5,000 "in fines against MT Supermarket and the employees named in the suit," according to KXAN.
