Jon Stewart Takes on "Pink Slime" Found in Most Beef: "It's Too Disgusting for McDonald's?!"

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart tackled "pink slime," the disgusting, ammonia-tainted, pseudo-meat product that, until the recent public outcry, was found in most grocery store beef. Below, Stewart walks us through the process of making the vile substance and then discusses perhaps the most disturbing fact about the "slime": that even McDonald's, the maker of the McRib sandwich, became convinced that the stuff is too gross to use in their burgers. MMMM.
