Cheers for whole-foods ingredients lists! About once a year I'm in the grocery store and I stop to read and crack up at the "corn meal, corn, corn gluten, corn, chicken digest, bone meal, meat byproduct liquid extract" labels on the crap-o food they park in giant sacks near the door. My very favorite non-food dog-food label: I used to work in a medical facility that housed a large dog colony. A bunch of the dogs were on this specific allergen-free diet which was basically the chemical building blocks of food with some neutral filler. Like vitamin-infused styrofoam. That seems insane to me until I think about all those folks out there drinking nutri-whatever "shakes", or those ads for people-kibble* that shows all the bowls of other kibble you'd need to get your daily RDA.
*Total cereal, etc.

“Falconry is not a hobby or an amusement; it is a rage. You eat and drink it, sleep it and think it. You tremble to write of it, even in recollection. It is as King James the First remarked, an extreme stirrer up of passions.” --T.H. White, The Godstone and the Blackymor
