Publish or Perish

After one receives an advanced degree (mine is in Canine Cuisine-if you must use the term “Doggie Dining”, you may but only if you give me a treat first), one is expected to perform original research in the field and publish the results. I did the research and I’m publishing.

The world is running out of clean water and nutritional resources. I didn’t specialize in water (do you know what fish do in it?) but it behooves us to explore non-traditional sources of nutrients. I’ve written about the suitability of forest products (see March 27) and determined that currency is not cost effective (March 4). Continuing my examination of possible new unappreciated food groups, as a by-product of my investigation of currency, I also found the packaging to be quite tasty and nutritious-it provides 100% of the daily requirement of Vitamin Lint.

Research on this is an on-going effort. For the present time, my research will be confined to pockets like these. This was cotton and I do not anticipate any research into synthetics like nylon and polyester because I believe in an organic diet.

Since petroleum is an ingredient in fertilizer, I’ve started investigations into eliminating the plant intermediary that converts this fertilizer. Perhaps other things from petroleum are nutritious. To this end, I am taking the advice given in “The Graduate” (since I am one)- “Plastics”

I found this plastic to be lacking in nutrition but fun to eat. I plan to revisit the plastics alternative periodically to determine if nutritional improvements have been implemented.

  1. We are with you on the cotton fiber, filling from stuffed teddy bears are an excellant choice for this, the plastic goodies we have not tried. Have you had any of that gunk from under the lawnmower deck thats been there for a couple of weeks, man you talk about good, when Dad is mowing it falls out, the we grab it, chow down, and it fills you up then cleans you out, ITS “WETSU”
    also known as “We Eat That Stuff Up”

  2. We don’t need a lawnmower, the only lawn we have is AstroTurf. Even if we had one, I’d have to watch out for the cactus needles-and that’s a food group that even I avoid (along with live rattlesnakes)

  3. What do fish do in water ~ Swim! I think Stuart with the Cat Bon Bons is investigating the recycling end of your Canine Cuisine. Myself I prefer the Itsy Bitsy Raisins the Easter Bunny leaves in my yard all year long.

    • We have plenty of bunnies and lots of bunny bon bons. They keep me on a leash, even in the back yard because of snakes, coyotes, bobcats and They just love the bunnies and don’t want to see them hurt. If it weren’t for the peanut butter treats, I’d ditch Them and join the circus.

    • OH!!! Bunny Raisins!!! THEY’RE THE BOMB!!!! Love them.
      Oh. Sorry to interrupt your stream of foodiciousness.

      Roo, Stu

  4. Kyla ~ Lee gave my blog a new background worked really hard ~ all done by us ~ no images taken from anybody!!!!! Now Image Shack took everything away saying over the top of my blog ” 403 Forbidden This file removed to violation of ImageShack Terms of Service or by users request”.
    Well I did not request it be removed.
    It was tooooo professional could not have been done by my little paws. I think we are going down.

    • I don’t get that Sweet William. I tawdled on over to your place – can’t bark at you, my bad for not asking Kyla to help Us even though Kyla and peeps are there to give Us the techno hand whenever She gets around to it – and I don’t understand why that 403 Forbidden thingey is there. I know Kyla can help. Truly I do.

      Arooo! Stuart
      PeeS Hey Kyla, thanks for letting us convo over here at your place. Tee Hee.

    • I’m not familiar with Image Shack. Since you didn’t request then they must believe that there was some violation of their Terms of Service. I’d start by reading them and if you still can’t figure it out, using a contact us and email them. Do you still have the original or is it their possession?

  5. Kyla ~ I fought the battle to save my own work ~ just five hours ~ phone, internet chats (chats not) but I WON!!!!!
    Sweet William The Scot

    • OK, what was the reason they gave you?

      One problem down, now I’m still waiting on Stuart to bark at bloggers. What’s the status, Stuart? The last I knew, you were getting a Google account in a different browser so you could have different cookies. Cookies? See ya later, gotta eat.

      • Oh Kyla if you are asking me, Sweet William The Scot, what was the reason they took my background ~ well they said it was too professional the work had to be politely borrowed, copped, taken from somewhere without permission. I had to prove it was original by my own paws.
