I keep thinking about this - among a lot of other things - and what I keep coming back to is yes, the cost of dog food is absurd.

But not what you're thinking.

It's absurd for a bag of sh1t that is nothing more than waste that big food processing corporations and slaughterhouses used to have to discard because it was diseased or so far rotted that it couldn't be used, turned into a high profit item to even have a price. Most of what's in there is garbage they once had to PAY to dispose of - now it's in a slick package, sold with catchy jingles and empty promises and people PAY to take it home and run it through their dogs to dispose of it. A bag of - literally - sh1t that has about the same actual nutritional value of a scoop from the septic tank, plus all the chemical laced additives and byproducts and general poisons inherent in the waste products used in the manufacture. Stuff that probably should be handled as toxic waste in a landfill.

So, is the price of dog food ridiculous? Damnstraight!
