Remember the old joke that if you get so poor, you have to eat dog food, at least buy the kind that makes its own gravy?

Well, apparently the Russian Army benefited from that wisdom lately

That said, given that dog food ain't exactly cheap--even the cheap stuff is at least 50 cents a pound--I'm not quite sure that feeding the troops dog food actually saved money vs. buying, say, flour and making a substance called "bread."  However, I dare suggest that if the generals wanted to destroy morale, they could hardly have chosen a more cost effective way of accomplishing it.
