That’s a beautiful shot isn’t it? There’s nothing more appetizing than food in the dirt. It’s like something out of the North American Scat Guide. All it needs is a ruler and a couple of flies.
The microscopic animal shit undoubtedly on the bottom of that pastry is a free bonus. Because that’s how they do business in the South.
Hey, now! In my part of the South, the bonus is a glass of sweet tea and someone calling you ‘Hon’, not animal feces.
*gets behind toomanycookbooks*
And if you’re a real bitch they say “bless your heart.”
But she has a point – animals in the South do their business on rocks in the woods.
I LOVE “bless his/her heart!” It’s like confession before you sin. My favorite use of the phrase was heard in Mississippi; “Bless her heart, she’s uglier than homemade sin.”
And that was before Etsy! I guess that lady could look into to the future and knew that homemade sin could be made from used tampons, be covered in glitter and was probably shaped like a penis.
There are not enough thumbs for that description. My hat is off to you aliceblue!
I really thing that sweet iced tea is not much better than feces (not having tried the latter I cannot be 100% sure). However, I agree that if they want to kill you down here it’s going to be the polite, old-fashioned way, with lots of lard and sugar and damn good biscuits, not with typhoid and intestinal parasites.
How about a nice helping of the hantavirus with that cookie? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002358/
Pecan turtle goatse with a touch of diarrhea. Yumzee.
Nothing more appetizing than turd cookies on a deer trail.
That actually sounds like a “redneck” insult: That boy’s dumber than turd cookies on a deer trail.”
I read that in a Southern accent, and it was glorious.
I heard it in Foghorn Leghorn’s voice
We got to scare our nature camp like that. The other counselor went on ahead and placed a squeezed together brownie with some uncooked macaroni, so that he could “find” the “scat” and eat it in front of the 12-year-olds.
It looked more appetizing that this crap.
I don’t have a witty remark, I honestly want to know why the fuck these people think that posing food in the dirt is in any way appealing. Especially food they want people to buy.
I’m staying with April’s opinion that this is why you don’t buy food on Etsy.
Maybe this was a cleaner alternative to photography in the kitchen?
‘This week, on ‘”Hoarders”. . . .’
They grew tired of using barnwood?
Or perhaps they’re saving the barnwood for something more smexy?
Has anyone tried selling barnwood photographed ON barnwood? Because that intrepid seller should get some kind of award.
Okay, I thought that was…well, you probably already know what I thought that was. Let’s just say at first I thought I saw an eyeball and leave it at that.
I thought they’d chopped a turtle up and used it to make some sort of charm bag. And I was wondering what kind of things a chopped up, half-rotted turtle was supposed to protect you from.
Hey – I was trying to see the turtle bits, too. Did not think yummy treat lying in the woods.
To be read in your best hushed David Attenborough voice:
As we make our way slowly through the swampland underbrush, we find the fresh scat of the ever-elusive Pecan Turtle! Fortunately no BillyBobs or JimmyJoes have been through, as Pecan Turtle scat is one of their favorite wooodland treats, second only to tire-tread ‘possum.
Closer scrutiny reveals what the Pecan Turtle ate most recently, and indicates a well-balanced diet of completely digested white goo, embedded with larger chunks and a runny mixture of assorted small creatures. None seem to be moving, indicating that this individual is probably free of parasites.
Chomp, slurp, smack. Buuurrrp!
This sure seems sanitary. I mean, posing the food in the woods? Pshh. There’s never anything like, you know, animal shit or bugs.
Moms used to tell kids a little dirt was good for you.
So…what exactly is this? Other than disgusting, I mean…
Now with even more Beaver Fever!
Gah. Hookworm. Giardia. Tapeworm.
Oh good! Now that the eggs have hatched, you can expect a variety woodland creatures sporting face huggers and gestating the end of life on earth as we know it.
The Corn Nut Tortoises are being photographed in the mule stable.
I have never seen a Rugelach. I had to google the word.
Rugelach is a traditional Jewish food that is eaten any time of year, including, but not limited to Shabbat.
Ohhhhhh that’s what it is. My dad’s jewish, why on earth didn’t i know that!! Maybe we ate them but they didn’t look like little piles of regurgitated dysentery. Hmm.
I still refuse to believe this is edible.
Oh, puh-lease… Is it really the lack of a food stylist you’re bemoaning? I wouldn’t to sink my teeth into that scatcracker no matter HOW it was photographed. There is NOTHING that could make that mess appetizing.
I need to work this word into conversation as soon as possible. Ideally, into a conversation that involves neither scat nor crackers.
That should be easier than waiting for a conversation that actually does involve scat or crackers.
There are a lot of racists, and some of them have blogs (look up “white pride” and “white nationalism” on tumblr. Or, in fact, don’t.) I don’t think “cracker” is strong enough for these people. This word may just be the answer. Next time any POCs here get anon hate, or in fact real life hate, maybe this is the word for you!
Okay, who shit on my mashed potatoes???
help me out here…which is the dirt and which is the rugelach?
“Rugelach” must be the sound you make as you spit it back out because it’s full of grit from being on the ground, I guess. :/
Ohhhhh… So bears DO shit in the woods…
Yeah, and he wiped his ass with the cookie.
It’s on… the GROUND. [hurk!] Does the “five-second rule” count, here?
I just lost my appetite. Excellent marketing technique, you ninny!
Those pecan turtles look like someone went “cowabunga” on the floor.
I call this one “Tunnel of Fudge.” It’s on the box, promise.
Perhaps you get a handwritten note with it telling you that the 5 week rule for dropped food applies to rugelach.
Have people forgotten the simple magic of a FREAKING DOILY?!
If a bear shits in the woods, can anybody sell it?
Love the dead link hijack Phyllis
The sad thing here is that Rugalach are delicious and turtle rugalache sound really awesome. The sell on that photo is super bad though wow.
Hmmm. For that price, she could at least tell us what kind of parasites we are going to get. Hopefully it will be the kind that is found in rodent droppings that migrates from your digestive system to your optic nerve. Now that’s a bargain!
I truly thought the decapitated, desiccated corpse of a turtle’s head was being sold for a second until I noticed that the brain matter resembled chocolate chips.
Y’all are nuts, I would tear that shit UP!
