Great quick tip… you should be on TV.
Did not appreciate the animal cruelty portion…even as a joke.

Wives everywhere are giving you cut eye right now.
Amnial abuse + perpetuating racial sterotypes. I’m sure your going to step on someones toes.
Actually i personally know a german and and Italian who have eaten cats and rats.
It was during WWII so i can forgive them.

Use wax paper on glue-ups too. place it over the seam on a glue joint and you can lay it on the bench without it gluing to the bench, then it peels right off.

The cooking cat might not have been necessary even though a cat isn’t my favorite animal. Don’t get me wrong. I like cats just fine… they taste a lot like chicken.

Good tip and just enough craziness as always.
I hope the wooden plane wasn’t harmed as it sailed across the bench and hit the floor : )
I think you’re going to strike a lot of nerves with the kitty stew, joking or not.
Personally , I have no use for cats as I am highly allergic to 99% of them.
I’ll take Dan’s word for it that they taste like chicken, although next time I’m eating chicken , I might have to pause and ponder the reverse strategy.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

I’ll have to give this a try (the wax paper part).

Animal cruelty is only a problem in well developed countries. What’s considered normal in most countries could be a criminal offense in others. I killed and ate a chicken in the Dominican Republic, when one friend back in the US found out they couldn’t believe I had done such a horrible thing. This same person however has no problem eating chicken found in the local grocery store.

AH. We had a feeling this video was going to push a few buttons. It just so happens Buddy the cat likes to sleep in that pot. That’s were Bret got the idea. Buddy is and was not forced into it. And racial stereotypes….the asian recipe called for chicken. No recipe should ever have cat in it :-)
All in all, it’s ment to give a laugh. If anyone is offended that was not our intention.

You can also use the wax without the paper.

I laughed. It surprised me that the video raised some eyebrows.
