In this most depraved set of conflicted realities there's the ostentatious, limited edition, presentation of parts of a pig carcass delivered in a black velvet box.
There are three "elite" options: As pictured - The Commander, (note the "truth in advertising" disclaimer on the cash), The Matador and The Woodsman. I'll spare readers the narratives of each... For a chuckle you know where to find the pseudo-hyper-masculine bravado and pretentious video launched for this orgy of perverted, self-indulgent excess. (Ancient Rome anyone?)
Meanwhile... We have millions of pigs that live their miserable short lives enslaved in tiny boxes that are lined only with pain and despair.
The Oscar Mayer folks compare their pig-meat to the quality of diamonds citing 4 critical "c's".
Here's my 4 that count more:
Consciousness, Consideration, Care, and Compassion
It is so wrong to treat these innocent pigs so harshly when there are many other kinder options.
Unbox your heart... Unbox the pigs... Thank you.
