Just Wrong

I just saw someone who was eating "soy jerky". Somehow, this seems wrong to me. I guess it's correct in a strict etymological sense in that "jerk" has come to refer not just to dried meat but also to the marinate itself. That aside, however, I still think the idea of soy jerky is just wrong.

I'm still in favor of the whole dead animal approach. If I want to eat something which is supposed to taste like dried, spiced, dead animal, I'll east dried, spiced, dead animal. Hmmm...dead animal....

Hey "RH" -- if you see the person eating soy jerky again, will you ask where they bought it? As per Brett's earlier post, we used to buy this kind of soy jerky at the Wheatsville Co-op in Austin and it was yummy. It has a cowboy or a farmer or something on the bag. Yum.

*sigh* okay, I'll keep my eyes open and let you know what I can find out.

Rogue, this sounds like the perfect food for the west-coast, liberal elite. I'm sure it's great with some frou-frou latte.
