Recycling Chihuahuas

Fricassee the chihuahuas.

  [vote for,

I heard on the news today that there is a population explosion of chihuahuas and thousands of them are ending up in shelters because folks run out of money and can't afford them, after bringing them home.

Or, because of foreclosures, the entire family has lost their home and the chihuahuas are left on the street to fend for themselves.

Literally hundreds of these little pie fillers are being put down at humane societies, due to man's lack of empathy for these small, shrill, shivering vermin and what they are capable of doing on your nice clean carpets.

Hence my idea; Recycling Stations for Chihuahuas, of Anywhere Inc.

It might take a wee bit longer to make them palatable but they are small and would easily be made to fit into a mincer, cooked and fed to their now homeless owners, in shelters and soup kitchens.

In fact, it will be difficult to tell them apart from rabbit meat if they are fattened on the right diet for a few weeks after capture.

Cook the chihuahuas, and help mankind. Win-Win.

Chihuahua Mime? [Boomershine, May 21 2011]


       Chilli con Chihuahua… [+]   

       Pass the tacos.
8th of 7, May 14 2011

       For campfires, or for rockets?
infidel, May 14 2011

       What is this, the two minutes' hate? We ran out of real enemies 27 years ago, and for catharsis we're reduced to hating on lapdogs?   

       Now, if this had involved dogs on unicycles, I might have voted for it.
mouseposture, May 14 2011

       What, you hate dogs on unicycles? Shame on you!
infidel, May 14 2011

       [infidel] Took me a bit to decipher that anno. It has more -- and more entertaining -- content than the idea does. Still no vote, though.
mouseposture, May 14 2011

       I guess it all depends upon how much you hate chihuahuas, [mouse]. Me, I think of them as the pigeons of the domesticated mammal world.
infidel, May 14 2011

       Hot dog !
8th of 7, May 14 2011

       hasnt taco bell been doing this for years? I thought thats why they had the Chihuahua as their spokesperson?
bob, May 15 2011

       I've seen prior echo ideas before, but your's really takes the cake, [infidel]. Not fair. I posted my idea in good faith, and then you robbed me of my adulation and bunnery.   


       Now apologize or I will sick my pack of OH SO sick chihuahuas on you. (Think Stephan King meets Buffy the Vampire.)
blissmiss, May 15 2011

       Wow, [bliss], you're worked up good! (...that's kinda HOT...)   

       <here's GROG pulling up a front-row chair and digging into a popcorn box>   

       Game on!

       Well, they're just pretending to be dogs, so we're off to a flying start.

       //the ammunition wagons for the Flakvierling//
Ah! 20mm - my favourite AAA calibre.
A bit big for these critters, though.
AbsintheWithoutLeave, May 16 2011

blissmiss, May 16 2011

       Do I have to keep them in blue bags until collection day? Or is there somewhere I can redeem them for deposit?
tatterdemalion, May 16 2011

       A scientific analysis of a representative sample of chihuahuas gives the following results:

Loyalty: 0%
Trainability: 0.03%
Intelligence: < 23 ppb
Cuteness: 2.314 x 10E-18 %
Bug eyes: 19.6%
Psychotic aggression towards trouser turnups: 23%
Stupid ears: 15.4% (seasonally adjusted)
Incredibly irritating unprovoked pointless maniacal yapping: 47%

Remainder: hyperallergenic fluff and dander.

       I wonder if this is how Taco Bell really found their sponsor--the meat escaped.
RayfordSteele, May 16 2011

       The Chihuahua - the result of breeding a dog with a blowfly. Small, annoying, and funny-looking.
neutrinos_shadow, May 16 2011

       //Cuteness: 2.314 x 10E-18 %//   

       That appears to b a gross exaggeration, [8th].
infidel, May 17 2011

       There is a wide error band on that value, [inf]. We can't discount the possibility that the calibration was affected when the chihuahua was forced into the mass spectrometer's vacuum chamber.   

       // breeding a dog with a blowfly //   

8th of 7, May 17 2011

       It might help if there was a mandatory 5- cent deposit fee on every Chihuahua purchase.   

       As for the tangent topic: you can joke about overcompensation all you want, but I'm awfully partial to the Flakzwilling.
Alterother, May 19 2011

       Which calibre ? They built them up to 150mm ...
8th of 7, May 20 2011

       [8th], I like the 128mm, especially the fixed twin-mount. I got a chance to see one when the US Army Ordnance Museum was still at Aberdeen. FlZwg 44, if I'm not mistaken. I find the design of the breech-lock particulary artful.   

       Now that I think about it, a Chihuahua could easily fit into a 128...
Alterother, May 20 2011

       A Chihuahua would probably fit into an 88 ... or indeed a 20mm, with the help of a length of broom handle to act as a rammer, and a heavy mallet.

8th of 7, May 20 2011

       Great book, I can see it from here (by which I mean it's on my bookshelf). I just didn't want to link to anything due to this tangent being decidedly off-topic. How about a Bofors? Four Chihuahuas at once!
Alterother, May 20 2011

       Chihuahua Katyusha ...
8th of 7, May 20 2011

       Love it.
Alterother, May 20 2011

       Though the CMC and the Humane Society would be all up in arms over them, a JP233 could carry a payload of at least 215 chihuahuas. There should still be a few around, despite their withdrawal from service in the last few years.
infidel, May 20 2011

       Would Chihuahuas survive ballistic re-entry?   

       My dad is a veterinarian (IKYN). Maybe with our collective knowledge of WWII/Cold War armaments and his three decades of vet-med experience, we could realize this tangent into an actual halfbaked bun of our own!   

       Side note: why did Gander and Chamberlain include the Flakzwilling 44 in thier work when technically it was a naval weapon (being used almost exclusively in shore battery deployment)? Or did they... I haven't actually bothered to get up, cross the room, and check. Maybe I should do that...

       It was a Flak _40_ I was thinking of, not 44. Where is my head?

       //Where is my head?//   

       Sorry, accident...
infidel, May 20 2011

       // nebelwerfer //   

       Hmmmm … the V-1 carried about 850Kg of Amatol… density of about 2, say 500 litres… how many chihuahuas can be crammed into half a cubic metre?

       With or without a hydraulic press?

Not enough.

AbsintheWithoutLeave, May 20 2011

       I think I saw some Saturn Vs lying around the Halfbakery recently. Maybe we could use one of those.
Alterother, May 20 2011

       // hydraulic press //   

       Without, definitely. It's important to preserve these old craft skills that are such a vital part of rural life. Cider apples, and grapes for wine are still pressed by traditional methods; it would be tragic if it were no longer possible to go and see a proper old- fashioned chihuahua press in action.   

       Think of the children …

       You know, I'm pretty sure my dad has one of those in the back room.

       With laser-confined fusion, enough to power the world.
