    Well, just about everything that exists naturally that we ingest is alive at some point. The irony is the folks who don’t want to eat certain things often claim what they do eat as not being a living thing.

    I prefer veal. I hear they die of boredom from being chained to a rail to keep their muscles soft.

    I haven’t heard of not eating some things because they’re not alive. Perhaps having to do with intelligence, not life. Most of the issues boil down to abuse and health and has nothing to do with living, or intelligence. I’ve never heard of a stalk of corn being abused (GMO aside, which is another issue). Chickens, on the other hand, wind up in the news because of it. Eating a pig is the same as eating a dog. Actually, pigs are more intelligent. People acutally eat dolphins, too, though it’s not as wide spread as it was.

    Uhh, Pig, do you own a dictionary? Look up “lamb.” Ex definitione, a lamb cannot die of old age. So, let that be on your conscience!

    What utter nonsense. I lived by the hog farms & chicken processors. That’s real stuff. I’m no vegetarian, but there are real abuses, and PETA has nothing to do with them.

    Sort of reminds me of a commercial from a few years ago —Buddhist-monk like man walking along a path, stops to help a small creature (turtle?) cross the path, rescues a kitten from a tree limb, adroitly side-steps a caterpillar, etc.Stops to blow his nose – then notices the product claims to “kill 95% of germs”…

    Hope you never try to cook veal, or worse, suckling pig.

    I once worked in a bar with a boss who was the meanest most vicious SOB on the planet, except when it came to rats. Then he was all for capturing them humanely and releasing them back in their natural habitat. When I pointed out to him that the garbage dumpster in the back alley is their natural habitat he threaten to fire me. I always figured his compassion for the rats came from a sense of kinship.

    douglas adams — the restaurant at the end of the universe, a cow appears that’s been especially bred to say how happy it is to be cooked and eaten. “you meet the meat”. the main character arthur is very uncomfortable and demands a salad while the rest of the group chows down on beef. genius
