Today I went into Woolworths. A supermarket retailer in Australia. (for you non-Australians). I was just browsing through looking for things to throw
my money away on. Because that's what i'm trained to do! I thought of my beautiful chocolate labrador, Charlie the Chocolate Factory (because that's
what he is) as I came to the pet isle.
He's got Smacko's in the pantry and bones in the freezer already.
He's a spoilt dog and I chose to get a little treat for him.....again. I first looked at a tight rapped flavoured preserved pig shank. $4.99! "Get
stuffed", I thought.
Then I saw a pigs ears. "He'll love that crunchy little *#%~er", I said to my wife.
$2.39 for a 10gram pigs ear!!!
Frustrated I hurtled round to the meat section. Pork approximatel $24 per kilo depending on cut.
That makes pigs ears $239 per kilogram in Australian supermarkets and even more for preserved pig bones. What has happened to the world.....
NB: BP's regular unleaded has gone offline in Australia and today I had to make the choice between 10% "ethanol/water" unleaded @ $1.42per litre or BP
Ultimate98 for $1.54per litre. I got 25.86 litres for $40.00 Australian dollars. That is almost $9.24 per gallon for premium unleaded....
I'm almost ready to go POSTAL!!!
