If you read this blog on a regular basis you know that I periodically feature National Days where certain items or topics are celebrated. Recently we’ve had National Taco Day, National Coffee Day, National Pancake Day and National Waffle Day. I covered all of them on this blog. Soon we’ll have National Nachos Day and I will report it faithfully. Nearly anyone can start a National Day and I have just come across a horrible one.
Today is National Cook Your Pet Day. This is terrible. While I do not have a pet I cannot imagine making filets from your Fido or your feline. Awful to consider ham hocks from your hamster or sushi from your pet fish (though I suppose that technically is not cooking – you see what I’m saying). Now cooking ferrets may be fine – sort of like a pork tenderloin, I guess.
Oh, wait just a moment, I see now that today is actually Cook FOR Your Pet Day. Oh, that’s different. Never mind.
