  1. let me be the first to say, EWWW.

    okay. i’m done now.

    haha, it is actually kind of funny.

  2. What’s a slim jim? By the looks of it, it’s either liquorice or a twiggy stick. Or something completely different. Either way, I wonder where he got that idea from?

  3. a slim jim is basically beef jerky compacted into stick form, & comes in various meat-flavors, although it’s main ingredient is ‘mechanically’seperated chicken, which is extremely disconcerting to me.

  4. Slim Jim’s are nasty in flavor and consistency and how anyone eats them is a mystery to me.

  5. i’ve never heard of slim jims, but it’s very possible i’ve just blocked them out. and what on earth is “mechanically separated chicken?” or is it better left to the imagination?

  6. Awwww. Back when I ate meat, I liked SlimJims! They are yummeh.

    The joys of large gauge holes. :)

  7. I haven’t eaten meat for years, not to mention a Slim Jim, but aren’t those very salty/spicy? Wouldn’t it irritate your gums and fistula?

    Oh, and I’ll add the obligatory “ew.”

  8. THAT! …is Horrible.
    By The Way Mechanically Separated Chicken is also the #1 ingredient for Spam!
    …I read WAY TOO many food labels

  9. Brilliant! :D

    Yeep! Foods can be used for all sorts of things. Ive used those sour straws for my tongue… It doesnt last long, cause i always end up eating them before i know it hehe

  10. 1. i love how many people don’t know what slim jims are! At first I was like, how is that possible not to know slim jim!?! but I guess when you’re from the South (of the US), you pretty much grow up with them and you cant expect others to be so familiar. haha.

    2. Slim Jims = disgusting after taste. I would assume with that in there he is dealing with a continuously bad after taste. Imagine kissing that!

    thanks for the laughs!

  12. The first thing I noticed was how incredibly blue his eyes are. I think thats because I’ve mentally blocked out everything having to do with weird meat products.

  13. It’s a way to save a snack for later! You could just munch a little bit at a time, hahahaha.

  14. #5. Mechanically separated chicken? D: This concerns me. It probably means something completely non-disgusting, but it sounds… disconcerting, as you say.

    I said twiggy stick, so I guess a slim jim is like that… Twiggy sticks are salami stick things. You can get mild and hot, I think. I wouldn’t want to be sticking anything with “hot” on the label in any of my piercings though!

  15. I just realised how ironic it is I’m D:-ing at mechanically separated chicken, when I eat parts of a cow no one would touch if their lives depended on it.

  16. In the UK we have Pepperami, which I think is the same kind of thing and is also pretty mingin’… I always felt the same way about them as those Cheese String things – they’re just pretending to be food!

  18. After an animal is slaughtered and butchered, there are small bits of meat attached to the carcass. To maximize the amount of meat “harvested” per animal, processors will “power wash” the carcass of the meat. The resulting slurry is forced through a sieve and the processor is left with odd meat (and cartilage, connective tissue, etc) bits. This is mechanically separated meat.

    It’s disgusting and MUCH, MUCH different than eating offal meats (if that’s what Dimruthien is referring to).

    As an aside, there are much stricter regulations on how MSM can be used in the human food supply because of BSE (in both the US and UK). Previously, MSM would contain bits of spinal cord and brain. Appetizing.

  19. I didn’t know what a slim jim is either. In Hungary we have something called “snack-friend” (I tried to translate the name best as I could) which is basically the same thing. I wouldn’t eat it anyway because 1) Its gross 2) Its dead animal.

  20. they should have a contest for the strangest things you can put in your stretched holes…i can only imagine what would transpire…

    as for finally unravelling the mystery of the meat in slim jims…EWWWW…thanks guys! i may never eat a slim jim again…dammit! they are good too!

  21. Ok just so we are all clear, No, slim Jims do not make good jewelry. I wore it just for the picture then took it back out and put in my teflon lebret piece. I am a piercing artist and know well the dangers of wearing something like that for an extended time. it was a gag. 2. Yeah, I do have pretty eyes.

  22. Even meat eaters should avoid the shit that goes into mechanically recovered meat (eyelids, rectum, tongues, ligaments etc etc).

    Only in the US would they package it up and sell it to the public.

  23. “Only in the US…”

    Yes, all European and UK meat comes from happy rolling pastures and MSM is just a US product.

  24. >>>Yes, all European and UK meat comes from happy rolling pastures and MSM is just a US product.

    We tend not to have snacks made entirely from MSM.

  25. …as a vegetarian that’s kinda icky. Funny once you get past the icky meaty by productyness of it.

  26. I think it’s better that we don’t waste those eyelids, lips, assholes, etc; It’s all protein anyways, and if the thing is gonna die might as well eat it all.
