Guess It's Better Than Polka Dotted Penis

Would you eat this?

Yeah, me neither.

I spotted this fine product in a store called World Market which sales imported goods from all over the globe. They have everything from wine to bedding. But this one raised my brows and made me realize a few things.

1) No wonder the spotted owl is endangered. This harvesting program has to be brutal on their mating habits.

2) How many owl hootus's does it take to fill a can this size?

3)What is Heinz not selling enough ketchup these days?

Okay all fun aside the can says this is a sponge pudding with raisins and plums or something along that sort. Who knows, it might be good, but couldn't they have at least called it Spotted Richard?

So have any of you tried any spotted dick?

I've never tried it, but I've got to think that it can't be that good, if only because it's canned. I'm guessing that if you whipped up a batch on your own it would probably be pretty tasty. It's a British name though, so there you go. Those wacky brits.

Okay Travis, so you sent me racing to the grocery store--oh wait, no, you sent me racing to yahoo search engine.

I found this definition: Heinz Spotted Dick Pudding 10 oz (285g) Tin, imported from England. This is a traditional British sponge pudding made with golden syrup, suet and raisins. Best served hot with custard.

Suet?? With Syrup?? With Raisins??
Serve with Custard??

I wouldn't eat it no matter what they call it. Terrie

Terrie - Isn't suet something birds eat? Yuck!

Travis - Spotted Dick is something that happens when you have sex with a clown. It's a very disconcerting disease but very useful if one is concerned their spouse is cheating on them with a circus person.

Hi Pretzel,

Suet is raw beef or mutton fat. And, right you are! Lots of birds love it, so it is used as a base in many bird feeders.

Terrie (who is staying away from the circus, just to be sure.)

So what's the difference between lard and suet?

This doesn't sound terribly appetizing. Something else I noticed... Is this crap really 4.99 a can??? I'm not going to eat it if it's free let alone alone 5 bucks a can... Classic photo post... Gave me quite a chuckle...
