Eight Is, Most Certainly, Enough

File this one under 'What the Hell?'

Dick Van Patten of 'Eight Is Enough', 'The Love Boat', and 'The Shaggy D.A.' fame (as well as countless other programs - especially 70's Disney films - Freaky Friday anyone?) is now marketing a line of pet foods, the canned versions of which, apparently, are of such high quality that they can be consumed by both man and beast. Call me skeptical, but very much amused.

Below are the can designs for 'Hobo Chili' and 'Chinese Take Out with Sauce' varieties:




I love the hats. You can also get it in Southern Style Dumplin's With Gravy and Irish Stew varieties (with Spaghetti with Beef and Meat Sauce coming soon. I can't imagine what kind of hat he'll wear on that can.) I also wonder if any of his dog foods were subject to the same recalls that some other dog foods had to undergo. Has Dick been poisoning our pets?!? Who knows and who cares?? I had no idea Tom Bradford was so versatile!

P.S. Check out his IMDB page at some point. This guy must be the most well traveled actor on the planet. Plus, some of his project titles are gems. The Hoboken Chicken Emergency?

(credit must be given to Boing Boing on this one, who found it from Ape Lad)

TB in a Chinese peasant hat...actually more frightening than the "Toppins" clip.
