Edible Chamois

Eat your bikes shorts. Deuteronomy 14:4-5 [KJV]:

These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat, the hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.

    That's a species of European goat, right? Wasn't that the critter whose leather was first used to line the bike shorts?

    Welp, it is almost as appealing as goat or ox… with enough salsa and salt…

    You mean the name of the synthetic padding comes from the name of an actual animal?

    As someone who regularly eats Chamois, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

    Nah – old cycling shorts were wool and lined with chamois leather. Like you used to use to towel off your car. I've got a pair floating around somewhere, I think.

    Bahh. You're too young. Get off my lawn, kid :P

    “towel off your car” — I don't understand this concept. Isn't that what the blow dryer thing at the car was is for?
