From the annals of what-will-they-think-of-next, we bring you a hilarious new product: Season Shot.
Basically, it’s buckshot—made of seasoning. Yup, seasoning. As in salt, pepper, parsley, etc. From the company’s website:
Season Shot is made of tightly packed seasoning bound by a fully biodegradable food product. The seasoning is actually injected into the bird on impact seasoning the meat from the inside out. When the bird is cooked the seasoning pellets melt into the meat spreading the flavor to the entire bird. Forget worrying about shot breaking your teeth and start wondering about which flavor shot to use!
Our only disappointment was that the company doesn’t seem to make use of the painfully apropos killing-two-birds-with-one-stone (er, seasoning pellet) cliché in any of their marketing efforts. We believe a riff on said aphorism would be a significant improvement over their current mottos, “Ammo with flavor” and “Kills. Shoots. Seasons.”
Another possibility: No Buckshot Left Behind.
Oh, we could go on all day.
