9News- Tennis star Serena Williams was recently tempted enough by her dog Chip's tasty-looking dog food to take a bite, but she definitely ended up regretting it. The 34-year-old pro told the whole story on Snapchat, explaining that the hotel in Rome she's staying at has a fancy "Doggy Menu," and that the dishes look exactly like human food. After noting that her Yorkie's beef and vegetable dish looked better than her own food, she decided to try Chip's salmon and rice dish the next day.
"Don't judge me, I ate a spoonful!" Serena admitted. "Let's fast forward to two hours -- I just ran to the toilet. Like, I thought I was gonna pass out."
"It did taste weird," she added. "I forced swallowed it ... it tasted a little bit like a house cleaner kind of thing."
"I don't think it's consumable for humans ... and they should have wrote that!" she joked. "I am on the struggle boat. I guess I'm going to look really svelte on the court tomorrow."
"But really though, what was I thinking? 15 euros for a soup, yesterday I paid 18 euros for beef and chicken, and today I paid 15 euros for that stuff that's making me go to the bathroom," she explained.
Serena later left a kind note on the doggy menu should another person fall into the same trap.
"IF YOU ARE HUMAN -- DO NOT EAT. IT MAKES YOU SH*T!" she wrote as a hilarious disclaimer.
First of all, that deluxe dog food looks like...well...what I would expect deluxe dog food to look like. I thought she was going to show me some plated dish that resembled a 5-Star human meal with a little doggy bone sticker on the side to clarify. Nope, just a bowl of chopped up unseasoned salmon and white rice. Hey Serena, here's a pro tip - stick to the food that they are feeding to living creatures that know how to verbally complain. Not saying that your dog's food looked terrible. In fact, it kind of looked like something you could get at your local mall food court for $5. That being said, they aren't serving the fresh caught salmon and the finest of rice to pets that don't know how to use 'Yelp!'. Dog food is dog food for a reason and it's not because it's cut up into easily consumable bites. It's because dog's will eat fucking anything. Taste isn't guaranteed when the kitchen knows the intended recipient stands no chance of sending it back. You aren't paying $20 per doggy dish because it's gourmet dining, you're paying $20 per doggy dish because it doesn't look like your average dog food. If they were serving up kibbles and bits they couldn't justify robbing pretentious assholes that are requesting their own dog menu. It's all about looking like you are getting your money's worth. That's why they don't mind giving your pooch the fish that they accidentally marinated in 'Pledge', because your dog won't know the difference and they didn't expect the person pompous enough to order off a dog menu to reduce themselves to actually consuming something off of it.
