This is totally gross, but since it technically has to do with food, I thought that I'd share it with you! It's a blog post from I Hate My Message Board, where she documents the opening and cooking of a whole canned chicken.
Technically, it's edible. Officially, it's pretty darn gross. I can see where this might be necessary if you didn't have refrigeration. But dear God! I think that I'd rather slaughter a chicken and gut it myself, than to hear the disgusting SCHLOP sound this thing would make coming out of the can.
I have a few selected photos below, but to get the full effect, you need to read the amazing post here. FYI, even though she cooked it -- it never browned!
