It has been brought to my attention that I left out an opinion.
Alexis! Who IS a fish! Believes that dog is white meat. I, however, disagree. She might or might not
write more on the topic. Her reasoning is poorly done, but it exists, so I give her credit.
September 17th, 2002.
In AP French today, we were doing a pathetic exercise involving Madame saying
the name of a food and the student victim saying the food group it is in. I was given "chicken" and said "meat."
Apparently, I was wrong. Chicken falls in the vol. . . something category, which might mean "poultry." It is not
meat, at all. So then, I got a bit distracted, and I asked how you tell which category it falls under (at the time,
I thought that vol . . . whatever meant "white meat" because I hadn't looked at the stem of the word which is vol which means
to fly) and she looked at me like I was stupid and I said "whether a food is red or white meat," and she said "well you generally
know" and I'm like "okay - Madame? Is dog red or white meat?" This was all in French, of course, but I'm guessing
someone will read this who does not take French. Her answer:
Only birds get to be white meat. Dogs are not birds. So
that is Madame's answer.
Chris W. says:oh yes, and about the dog meat....
Chris W. says:you could play this one of two ways
Chris W. says:1) red/white based on fat content and genus
Chris W. says: or
Chris W. says: 2) what it would acctually look like when cooked
Chris W. says: i'm under the impression it would be cooked white, like pork, because
what makes meat red for grazing animals like cows and sheep is actually what they eat: grass. there's a chemical in it that
causes the meat to be red when eaten
Chris W. says:dogs don't get much of that chemical i'd assume.....probably white meat
Chris W. says:but they're mammals, so.....
Chris W. says: probably red meat
Blink182girl527: id say that dogs r red meat
BrassIdiot: thank you!
your thought will not go unnoticed!
blink182girl527: cuz ppl r red meat and some ppl are dog-like
ConnivingWombat: and on dog meat: how could you even ask? as all people should
know, it is in a category occupied by only one other type of meat: the flesh of human infants (i.e. swift). this meat
is neither "red" nor "white".....merely "exquisite"
PMPADDYMAN: i say white meat
I actually found a site that proves that dog is red meat. But it's more fun with all these
people who disagree. Although, Jon, Katie, and Mr. Huot all say it is red. Like I do. They say this because,
well, Katie says that dog meat is obviously red, because lion meat is red. That's good reasoning, no?
BrassIdiot:is dog red or white meat?
ummm...... good question. but i dont know the answer
do you THINK?
okwrite: red... .. though i wouldnt know where to begin
classifying a dog as a type of meat
BrassIdiot:is dog red meat or white meat?
why are you thinking that....?
BrassIdiot: I expect an answer
is dog white meat or red meat?
wrestlingman222: I think it's white.
wrestlingman222:Why do you ask.
BrassIdiot: yeah, because we were doing a "survey"
BrassIdiot: I didn't leave one
BrassIdiot: we were surveying whether dog is red meat or white meat
BrassIdiot: we were calling random people and asking
what's your answer
SpicyK8T: mm.....ive never seen cooked dog
SpicyK8T: but i would guess red meat
