If it's good enough for the dog....

Do you think you can tell the difference between pate and dog food? Apparently most Americans can't tell the difference. In a study done by the American Association of Wine Economists, blind taste testers were given five samples. Only 3 of the 18 tasters were able to correctly identify the dog food. The five samples were selected from a wide price range but were processed to be similar in texture. Duck liver mousse, pork liver pate, Spam, liverwurst and Newman's Own Dog Food were the samples given to the tasters. Two of the tasters identified the duck liver mousse as dog food. Four people thought it was the Spam. At least 72% of the tasters agreed the dog food tasted the worst.
