I don't yet have a "Freaky-Friday" post so here it is!
How would you like to decline an event with this excuse... "So sorry, but I'm attending a Boar Semen Conference that day."
Or what about the next time someone says that cows, chickens and pigs offer the best source of "essential" nutriments for the body? Here's a great argument for them:
Hamburger, for example, is roughly 18 percent protein and 18 percent fat. Cooked grasshopper, meanwhile, contains up to 60 percent protein with just 6 percent fat. Moreover, like fish, insect fatty acids are unsaturated and thus healthier.
DeFoliart, the Wisconsin entomologist, says that not only are insects nutritious and delicious, they could be an environmentally friendly source of human protein requirements.
"In our preoccupation with cattle, we have denuded the planet of vegetation," DeFoliart said. "Insects are much more efficient in converting biomass to protein."
Insect farming is arguably much more efficient than cattle production. One hundred pounds (45 kilograms) of feed produces 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) of beef, while the same amount of feed yields 45 pounds (20 kilograms) of cricket.
No bug eating? Good!
How about some yummy human breast milk - That scientists in China have now convinced cows to make and to NOT feed to their own calves?I know... Isn't it silly for any adult to drink any mammary secretions?
OKAY - What about steak made from poo - Whet anyone's appetite yet?
Ahhh... But what to feed a pig? I found this on an animal ag site:
(We are a strange species!)
And speaking of not eating pigs... Seems there's a rash of fake photo-copied Halal certificates that are misleading the Muslim community seeking "lawful" meats. And we've all seen how genuinely "clean" and "humane" the real deal is - Haven't we?
Here's a bit more bizarre news... Seems it's become more profitable to grow oats as livestock feed than for human consumption. It really is frustrating competing with "meat animals" for food isn't it?
Pathetic stoopidity a UL "Research" Lab caused the death of 3 Rhesus monkeys. No... It wasn't the death by usual torture - These guys went the special way of neglect through dehydration and starvation.
And here's one wacky nonsensical title for a sorry article "Horse welfare declines after closing of U.S. slaughter plants". The piece includes the pitiful sentiments about some horse trainer saying his sad goodbyes to his horse Rocky who he rode for 27 years. The guy really hated to do it - (ship his friend to the slaughterhouse in Canada or Mexico) - But hey - bullets cost money you know!
Finally, what about fish-hunting in a public pool? Yep it's all for "community fun", "education" and the reinforcement of "ethnic traditions". And more bothersome than the story was the unending defenses once the event was criticized. I know many readers here and friends on Facebook diligently tried to present truthful and reasonable arguments against this event (and all animal killing). I found myself cheering as I read each of your posts! Thanks be to living tuna for your clarity!!! And as I left it... We can only hope that some seeds were planted! ;)
So I guess this de-virginizes my lack of a Freaky Friday post... But then again - In this crazy animal-killing world it could be Freaky Friday, Freaky Wednesday, Monday or Tuesday. All of it lacks sanity. All of it is primitive, barbaric, deadly and wrong!
Glad to be vegan! Hope you are too!
