What do you do if you feed your kids dog food because you are too stupid to read a package?

What do you do if you feed your kids dog food because you are too stupid to read a package?

Do you:

  1. Stay quiet, hope no one, especially the kids don’t notice?
  2. Post your stupidity on Facebook so everyone can know how retarded you are
  3. Speak to your local media outlet and blame everyone else except yourself, proving that not only are you stupid but actually retarded?

Yep, the stupid person chose option 2 and 3, the quinella of stupidity if you like:

Parents have mistakenly fed children dog food after a pet snack pack featuring a well-known kids cartoon was put next to chips in a supermarket.

Horrified parents have told the Herald they bought the Scooby Snacks for their youngsters from the Whanganui Pak’nSave this week to eat at school and kindergarten.

But they have been shocked to discover the 30g individual carob snack treats were never intended for human consumption but were animal snacks.

What sort of a retard feeds bone shaped “treats” to their kids?

Did the big colourful word “dog” escape you?

Notices have gone up around Whanganui preschools and staff are checking lunch boxes to make sure children aren’t eating the wrong food.

“I wondered why my boy didn’t like the taste of them,” posted a parent on Facebook.

It was probably better for him than the chips that were in the same aisle that these retards were clearly going to buy instead.

Another parent said she bought a Scooby Snack multi-pack on Tuesday during her weekly shop believing it was children’s food.

“I was absolutely mortified when I gave them to my daughter. She took one bite and said, ‘this is rubbish‘.

“I looked at the packet closely and gasped, ‘Oh no, I am so sorry. I just fed you dog food’.”

What an ungrateful child, turning her nose up at nutritious treats. What’s the big deal, my son used to nick the dog snacks out of the dog bowl when we had terriers. I never stopped, I couldn’t I was laughing too much.

She said many people had been caught out by the placement of the pet-food multi-pack next to similar-style chip multipacks.

Caught out? No sweetie, you weren’t caught out, you are clearly “special”.

A multi-pack of shaped biscuit snacks called Scooby-Doo! and featuring the same cartoon character is also available in supermarkets.

One concerned mother said she had contacted Pak’nSave about the mix-up. She said they appeared more amused than concerned people would buy them to eat.

However she said people were often in a rush and duped by similar packaging. There was also nothing at the store to indicate it was pet food.

No, people are stupid, how the hell did they manage to work out how to have children?

If only they said “bitch” instead of “dog”, then this whole episode would be even funnier.

Why do people seek to blame everyone else for their utter stupidity?

Of course, they have forced an apology out of Foodstuffs:

“The bin of ‘Scooby Snacks’ was clearly labelled as ‘Pet Treats’ but unfortunately it appears some customers mistook them for human food.

“The store relocated the product to the pet food aisle, and has since decided to withdraw the product from sale and return it to the supplier.”

Laird said the product packaging warned the product was a “pet food product only, human friendly but not recommended”.

“We apologise for any distress this has caused to anyone who bought the product by mistake and will happily offer a refund to any customer in this position.”

What they should have said…”Oh I’m sorry you are too stupid to read, here’s a trespass notice to stop you falling for that IQ test again”.
