Banksy Opens Pet Shop in NYC

The pseudo-anonomous British grafitti artist known only as Banksy unveiled an installation in Greenwich Village this week entitled The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill. Included are chicken nuggets that dip themselves in sauce, fish sticks that swim round an aquarium and smoked meats that slither around their tanks. Better knwon for his murals, the installation seems to be making some statement about consumerism, animal rights, and the sheer deliciousness of processed foods.

A sign in front of the shop reads "Open for Pet Supplies/Rare Breeds/Mechanically retrieved meat."

It's been warm in these parts lately. In weather like this, by evening the indoors is stiflingly hot, while the outdoors is just staring to cool down. So, it makes sense that we'd be driven outdoors. Perhaps it makes less sense that, after escaping the heat indoors, I'd build a blazing hot fire…

Just as the safety of the food supply is coming under increased scrutiny we have the Castleberry Foods botulism recall, now involving a variety of brands of Hot Dog Chili Sauce and dog foods. Both have something in common you wouldn't necessarily think of at first (unless you knew about botulism).…
