In the first episode, Jamie cut a cow into pieces, poured nasty chemicals on it, then put it in a washing machine to make "Pink Slime". Now, we all know I eat poop. But no way I'd ever eat Pink Slime. That stuff is nasty. And when I say nasty, I mean NASTY.
But here's the thing - apparently the US government says it's OK to put nasty-ass Pink Slime in hamburgers and Jamie wants to stop this (among other things). I guess that's where the Revolution part comes in.
Right now Jamie is trying save the kids in Los Angeles public schools from nasty stuff like Pink Slime, but the schools won't let him anywhere near their kitchen. He's not even allowed to look at their food.
Completely. No idea what Los Angeles' problem is, but if some food dude wanted to come into my kitchen and make the food better, I'd totally let him in (hear that Jamie?). Tonight is only episode #3 so I guess someone will explain why at some point. I hope.
My human says Jamie is probably too busy trying to fix Los Angeles to worry about making my food better, but he totally inspired me to find out what's lurking in the stuff I eat. Tomorrow I'll tell you all about what I found in a bag of "all natural meatballs" The Man bought me.
I didn't find any Pink Slime, but let's just say that after reading the label I didn't really want to eat them anymore. OK, maybe I do still want to eat them a little bit. But only because the only other snack we get to eat around here is carrots.
Jamie's all-about-food show is on TV tonight. Check out the Food Revolution website for the info.
PS: 674,645 people in the USA support Jamie's Food Revolution, but I didn't see anything on the website about pugs. If you're on facebook, you can like Jamie with me: facebook.com/FoodRevolutionCommunity.

ANOTHER SPECIAL DAY!
Get out your cookies because today is Daisy Mae's day. I've already eaten two for you, Daisy - but don't tell Dutch. He's still trying to figure out where his cookie went.
