Kibbles and bits

Beggin’ Strip? A pet store owner in Kennewick plans to eat only the dog, cat and bird food she sells for a month to prove its nutritional value. The woman says the pet food is surprisingly tasty.

Not only that, her digestion has improved, she’s eating less, her coat is shinier, and her nose is wet.

Where’s the beef: You likely paid more for the hamburger you’re grilling for the Fourth of July, thanks to a 23 percent increase in wholesale beef prices this year. Drought in Texas has dwindled the U.S. beef herd to its smallest in 63 years.

If you’re looking to economize, take a hint from our Kennewick pet store owner. The dog food already comes in that handy cylindrical shape. Just slice and grill.

Better leave a good tip: Shooters restaurant in — of course — Rifle, Colorado, is encouraging its customers and its waitresses to openly carry firearms. A sign at the cafe advises: “Please keep all weapons holstered unless need arises. In such cases judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”

But the restaurant already had the same sign hanging in the men’s bathroom above the urinal.
