From my New Favorite Blog – Suicide Food:
I’m not a vegetarian, though I know that I really should be for a multitude of reasons that include my health, the natural environment, and concern over the treatment of the slaughtered animals. I’m just too lazy and a product of my culture to make that change just yet.
That being said, I’ve always been disturbed by advertisements for meat products that involve the animals that are going to be eaten who seem to be celebrating their own demise or the demise of a loved-one of theirs.
Why the hell should Charlie the Tuna’s feelings be hurt if he’s not good enough to be killed and have his body processed, put in a can and be a part of someone’s sandwich or casserole? Shouldn’t he celebrate the fact that StarKist will allow him to live, despite their perception of his genetic inferiority?
But seriously, go check out Suicide Food.
