Serena Williams Ate Dog Food, Almost Passed Out, Is Still A Living Goddess

Most people who have owned a pet or frequently been around animals have found themselves at one point or other gazing longingly at a bowl of animal food wondering if it tastes as good as their animal friend acts like it does. Hell, that mess actually looks good sometimes. In fact, this feeling of food lust is so common that even world-renowned athletes find themselves in this quandary, as was confirmed when Serena Williams almost passed out after eating dog food. You guys, if Serena damn Williams, noted perfect human being, can fall prey to the siren song of delicious-looking dog food, it can happen to any of us.

The tennis star found herself piqued by curiosity when she saw the appetizing plate of food provided by the hotel for her 3-year-old dog. Given the fact that she’s a fortress of strength and good health, it makes sense that she felt comfortable trying a few bites without fear. After all, many of us with much weaker constitutions have done the same thing.

The canine culinary spread included salmon and rice, which in theory sounds safe and possibly delicious, but after taking a bite she was quickly reminded why dogs and humans normally don’t swap food. A video of her endeavoring on this flavor journey can now be accessed on Youtube, but she originally only uploaded it to Snapchat (because this isn’t her first rodeo, and she’s acutely aware of the ways in which the internet will judge you for everything).

As you can see in the video, the illustrious “doggy menu” (please sedate me now) includes options for soup as well as first and second course options, which makes Serena’s desire to try his food even more understandable. If they have courses then it’s gotta be edible, right?!

Serena was a true woman of the people when she said what we’ve all thought at one point:

“That looks better than my food. I’m like, what the heck, I’m gonna try a piece. It looks good.”

Unfortunately, the aesthetics of the meal didn’t match the reality. While eating it Serena laughed at herself noting that it “tasted a little like housecleaner,” and two hours later she found herself running to the toiled with the palpable fear of passing out. Luckily her dog Chip liked it, which is most important. Actually Serena surviving is the most important. But also it’s nice that her dog still got to enjoy his meal. Good for him.

To those tempted to mount a high horse of denial claiming you shouldn’t eat dog food in the first place, Serena clarified, “Don’t judge me, I ate a spoonful.

Honestly, even if she ate the whole meal, I don’t think it’d be something worthy of judging. Most of the people I know have tried dog food at one point or another, and I’m pretty sure you get a free pass when you can pull these kinds of stunts and still qualify for the Italian Open on the same day. Like, you’re fine, Serena. You’d have to do a lot more than try a bit of dog food to fall from your throne.
