Here at Eating Our Words, we know that when something disturbs the hell out of you, it's best to talk about it. We can thank John Seaborn Gray for the most recent image we'd like scrubbed from our brains - a terrifying, whole chicken covered in gelatinous goo slipping from a can. We'd like to commiserate with commenter Marie, who seems to suffer from similar issues:
Haha I could barely get past the canned chicken. I love how the picture on the can looks like Thanksgiving dinner, all browned and complete with stuffing and with "home-style goodness!" And then it looks like a rotting carcass coming out of the can.
Marie, maybe we should start a support group to get past this trauma. In the meantime, a cocktail might help us to temporarily forget...
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
