JUST PART OF THE WONDER OF FACTORY FARMING....FIRE PROTECTION PROBABLY WOULD HAVE TAKEN TOO MUCH OFF THE "BOTTOM LINE". INSTEAD OF INSURANCE MONEY THEY SHOULD BURN THE FARMER ALIVE JUST SO HE CAN SEE HOW IT FEELS!! 20 WORKERS FOR OVER 12,000 HEAD OF LIVESTOCK, I BET THOSE HOGS WERE WELL CARED FOR...NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Christ.. they are just pigs.. what was the best they could hope for? Either the pigs burn now, or they spend another 2 months in a cramped concrete box before they are slaughtered.. big deal.

FYI: Posting in all capitals does not emphasize your point, it makes people skip over it because it looks like any other uninformed rant.

Was this caused by an antique tractor?

PETA must be happy now
 
2001-07-30 10:37:21 AM  
Lets start a pool to see how long it will take PETA to go after these guys. I need some moeny.
 
2001-07-30 10:37:54 AM  
Hrmm...Should PETA be happy or pissed about this? On one hand, 12K pigs died, but on the other, like Fb said, they didn't have to wait for the slaughter...

I don't know much about pigs. Much less now I suppose. I went to pig.com and was surprised by all it had to offer. I recommend it to you all. ...and suckers.

In a related story, Utah grocery stores are offering their largest sale of "pre-cooked" pork products of the year. Product range from bacon, chops, hams, and everyone's favorite - baby back ribs. Just "heat 'em and eat 'em" is the theme of the sale. "Get 'em while they're hot"!

I wonder what Leopold will have to say on this topic.

It will be just a matter of time before the Pork Industry blames this tragic accident for the rise in prices for pork products. Errrr, wait, this isn't the oil companies; perhaps we won't see a price increase. I mean, afterall, it was only 12,000 from one farm that produced 850,000 pigs for slaughter last year.

Yeah,right Lisa.A wonderful,magical animal.
 
2001-07-30 11:24:01 AM  
I bet it smelled great,like one big old B-B-Q !
 
2001-07-30 11:32:29 AM  
The price of hotdogs will drop.
 
2001-07-30 11:40:40 AM  
Firemen extinguished the blaze with several thousand gallons of bbq foam. I think mose people have had this dream before....now where the hell is my cole slaw?
 
2001-07-30 11:48:10 AM  
Stinkbug: Price of hotdogs will go up. They just had a major loss of inventory.
 
2001-07-30 11:48:41 AM  
I SMELL BACON !!!!! :-)

Who the hell says hotdogs are made out of pigs? According to the Simpsons, hotdogs are made out of assorted parts of racoons, snakes, eagles and boots. The price of hotdogs won't change because it doesn't matter from which animal the meat comes from.

Sniff Sniff......

Hey Cleetus!

I think they're havin a BBQ over at the Circle Four Farms!!

Mog:
You've ended your statement with a dangling participle, which is also redundant.
Are you from Detriot?
 
2001-07-30 12:44:42 PM  
I think it just added to the inventory.
 
2001-07-30 12:54:31 PM  
BizarreBehavior: My guess is that Leopold's on-site, stacking frantically, and thus too busy to partake of this thread.
 
2001-07-30 01:55:18 PM  
That fire must have smelled great!!!
 
2001-07-30 02:01:21 PM  
This is why they should disallow factory farms of this size.
 
2001-07-30 02:02:10 PM  
humm, lets see if this equation makes sense.
Pigs produce methane and other gases.
These gases are considered explosive.
Pigs = Methane = One hell of a BBQ.

"There are three big buildings out here that are a total loss and many, many pigs dead," Neilsen said. "It's not pretty."

Truer words are seldom spoken.

Truer? Truest? Trueue? Trueuer? Is that a word?
 
2001-07-30 03:46:07 PM  
Sounds like a job for Cuddahy Curly!!! I am immediately rushing to the scene to peddle that ham!!! Bwahahahahahahahhaah !!!

Can't always sell foo at foomar, you know!!!

I am upset that the stacker of pork has not commented on this issue. I woudl glady sacrifice a million pigs to save the life of a firefighter, they were already bacon they jsut did not know it yet. Animals are not people... Some people may be animals but that is annother story, generally seen on springer.

VINCENT
Thanks a bunch.
(to Jules, who's
nursing his coffee)
Want a sausage?

JULES
Naw, I don't eat pork.

VINCENT
Are you Jewish?

JULES
I ain't Jewish man, I just don't
dig on swine.

VINCENT
Why not?

JULES
They're filthy animals. I don't
eat filthy animals.

VINCENT
Sausages taste good. Pork chops
taste good.

JULES
A sewer rat may taste like pumpkin
pie. I'll never know 'cause even
if it did, I wouldn't eat the
filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep
and root in shiat. That's a filthy
animal. I don't wanna eat nothin'
that ain't got enough sense to
disregard its own feces.

VINCENT
How about dogs? Dogs eat their own
feces.

JULES
I don't eat dog either.

VINCENT
Yes, but do you consider a dog to
be a filthy animal?

JULES
I wouldn't go so far as to call a
dog filthy, but they're definitely
dirty. But a dog's got
personality. And personality goes
a long way.

VINCENT
So by that rationale, if a pig had
a better personality, he's cease to
be a filthy animal?

JULES
We'd have to be talkin' 'bout one
motherfarkin' charmin' pig. It'd
have to be the Cary Grant of pigs.
 
2001-07-30 11:10:07 PM  
See the joke is that pigs got cooked, and pigs are food. That's the joke.
 
2001-07-31 12:20:26 AM  
I'm sure PETA's pitching a fit. I'm inclined to say that's a lot of bacon gone to waste. Shame.
