Meatwater: A high-efficiency survival beverage. Don't worry; there is bacon water for your dog or cat, too.

On first read, I thought it said "Metawater," and I assumed it was what one was left with after straining regular water through MetaFilter.

To be truly high efficiency, you would need to add some carbs; perhaps a little flour or corn starch. Also some fat, for a lot of calories in just a little space. Butter, bacon fat or just the drippings off of that roast you cooked last night would work. Voila! Anything else is just broth.

I, too, read that as "Metawater."

High efficiency survival, indeed!

Who the hell wastes bacon (or bacon flavor) on pets? That's just shameful.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm not consuming anything called "meatwater".

I'm torn here. Bacon water? Yes. Yes, oh yes. Bottled water for pets who will happily drink from toilets, puddles, and swimming pools? This is why I hate the world.

Who was it that said they used to get out of chores as a kid (picking up dog poop) by dabbing bacon grease on it? Just a joke I'm sure but still...ew.

Is Meatwater Cocktail redundant?

I like meat. I also like consuming lots of liquid. That said, I think I'd prefer them to remain separate.

Ahem.

Bacon is the new pirates.

(Pirates were the new ninjas. Ninjas, monkeys: monkeys, robots. Someday, robots will be the new bacon)

Alert me when they create meat vegetables.

I think at this point we need to ask Matt to change it to Meatafilter.

Y'know... just for a day?

It says right on the first link that it's a photographer's marketing "leave behind". Yes, it's a joke.

That said, I too read it as "metawater", but my first question was "it's what water drinks?"

That would be bean flavored.

Speaking of meatwater, I just filtered my first batch of bacon-vodka last night.
I can confirm that is indeed a breakfast of champions.

The bottles of liquid on that page look like urine samples.

Serve it cool, but drink it warm.

I'm concerned with how many of these are blue or green. I'm not OK with hypothetical meat water being blue or green.. or or how the Tandoori Chicken is pink instead of orange or red.

I don't know if this is prior art, but I like the pictures. They look sorta sleepy.

It's weird, but I bet it'd make one hell of an interesting and possibly delicious Caesar. Cocktail+meatwater=COKCMEAT! (or, alternately, TAILWATER)

One of my favorite food quotes is "Adding bacon to a recipe is simply admitting defeat." I just wish I could remember who said it ....
