You may remember the vacuum-cooked chicken-in-glass of a few days ago...in fact, I bet you've been unable to get the imagined taste of it out of your mouth.
Now, to cleanse your palette, I give you the Hormel jellied whole chicken.
But that's nothing compared to the advertisement on the NEXT page. It's SQUAB! Ready to eat! In tins!
What's "squab?" The advertisement spells it out.
Folks fall out of saddles and leap out of lakes--when you mention this!Okay, so the advertisement doesn't even HINT at the true nature of squab. Is it because they assume the sophisticated readers of The New Yorker already know? Or is it because they don't want sophisticated residents of New York City to realize that they're eating pigeons?
to all picayunish appetites!
Your horoscope says...squab. Fifty million Frenchmen say...squab. Don't overlook--have a look.
