you've made a right dog's dinner of that

Remember those Pedigree Chum adverts back in the 1980s? There were a few of them, but they all had a bit at the end where a tin of Pedigree Chum was emptied out, whole, and then cut in half with a sharp knife so that half of it fell over sideways, with the voiceover saying "it's SOLID nourishment" synchronised with the moment the big jellified lump hit the table. I can't find that particular ad on YouTube, but it was an iconic 80s moment nonetheless. Partly because you could, with proper care and attention, perform the same trick with a tin of Campbell's meatballs - the gravy ones were the best.

It turns out you can do a 21st century rendition of the same trick with a can of Old El Paso refried beans. You need to be a bit careful as they're quite squishy, but it can be done. Photographic evidence below.
