I get them every once in a while to dehydrate. You should have seen my husband's face the first time I came home with them. I got out the meat cleaver and he went white. Truthfully, my good meat knife works better, but the meat cleaver just sort of adds some good "Psycho" drama. Hubby wouldn't come near the kitchen for hours. Now I just run out and buy some bull penis (penises? penii? A bunch of penis? A gaggle of penis? A bouquet? Oh Lord, the visuals...) whenever there's a good deal of work to be done outside that I don't want to do. I'm too cheap to buy them at the store. Oh yeah, and if you can get your hands on some, try your dogs with dehydrated bunny ears. They're like Lays chips for dogs, I swear.
