    ...are you supposed to eat it? Ever?

    It says 'Oxygen Absorber' on the side of the packet - along with 'DO NOT EAT' - you'd think that was enough to put most people off BUT I've always tipped it out in to the packet thinking that it was seasoning/salt.

    Time to stick my fingers down my throat?

    Silica Gel fan?

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Ah so you're the guy that they write "may contain nuts" on a packet of peanuts for.

    I've already eaten it - that's the point. ;_; It was like eating salty black chalk - I assumed it was some kind of 'traditional' flavouring.

    Honestly, I've had about a dozen packets of beef jerky in the past, and I've eaten that sachet every time. Every. Single. Time.

    I tried beef jerky once. It was like munching on a necrotic ball sack

    The reason why they make a point of telling you not to eat them is that a surprising number of damnfools figure any small packet found in a food container must be some kinda condiment.

    Do you eat the one you get in with new trainers as well?

    There was an article in the Daily Mail the other day that said eating them causes cancer.
    The Daily Mail? I think you're getting it confused with the 'Princess Diana causes Cancer' headline.

    If it is, at least it's probably adsorbing all the other things he's stuffed into his mouth like a giant three year old.

    Not once, not twice, not even three times but twelve times at least you've eaten silica gel? are you a bit stupid, let me rephrase that, a raging thicko, you're the reason we have all these stupid warning labels.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    If it's silica gel, I've heard that it shouldn't do too much harm as long as you ensure you stay hydrated. My source for this information is NOT reliable.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Health-wise, it's probably the same as eating uncooked rice.

    It's called "The Natural Selection Yum Yum Super Food" and it's perfectly safe, some even say enjoyable.

    This is a joke right? Why would you actively consume something with a warning not to?

    On the upside beef jerky is delicious.

    Guys I was at the zoo and I saw a sign that said "lion enclosure, do not enter, ever, ever, ever" so I got in. I'll be ok right?

    I think eating something that says in capital letters "DO NOT EAT" wins pretty much any muppet fight.

    You know it says no naked flames at petrol pumps, you should totally ignore that.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    You can add it to a glass of the stuff your mum keeps in a blue bottle under the sink. Surprisingly refreshing. (The X on the side is for eXtreme.)
