Where's The Beef?!?!?!??!

"Where's the beef?" was a phrase made famous by a little old lady named Clara Peller in a 1984 Wendy's commercial where:
"three elderly ladies are served an enormous novelty hamburger bun topped with a minuscule hamburger patty. While two of the women are so engaged, they are interrupted by an irascible Peller, who searches in vain for customer assistance while making the outraged demand: "Where's the beef!" -Wikipedia
Now here it is 28 years later and the American people are asking the same question but this time with no laughs thanks to the government seeing it fit to include "Pink slime" in public school lunch menus and ground beef products currently at some grocery stores .. ahem .. without labeling. If you haven't heard of Pink slime click here to get caught up!

Now that you're up to speed, check out this video of Jaime Oliver exposed Pink slime a year ago:

Since the USDA is obviously not looking out for the best interests of the American people, we have to take matters into our own hands. The strongest message we can send to the producers of this crap is a financial one and not support the use of this stuff for human consumption. Watch the video below to find out which major grocery store chains carry Pink slime and which don't:
