Well it did have big, sharp, pointy teeth.

They were 12-15, why are they crying? Shouldn't they be full of pretend bravado to impress their mates? Damned kids these days cry over anything.

Grow a spine, this is where your meat comes from.

TE[ntire}FA:

A children's TV chef looks to have gone a little too far after killing, skinning and cooking the Easter bunny.

Sarah Wiener, Germany's answer to Delia Smith, reduced some 12 to 15-year-olds to tears as the cute animals were stunned with an electric shock before having their throats cut.

Children were then asked to help skin the animals for TV show Sarah And The Kitchen Children.

'Children should know where their food comes from,' said Ms Wiener.


I want Alton Brown to do this. Holy CRAP, that would rock.

Why am I not surprised this was a German show?
 
2009-04-01 07:15:34 PM
Was that wrong? Should he not have done that?
 
2009-04-01 07:16:13 PM
"I'm not going to be ignored..."

Deserves a HERO tag.
 
2009-04-01 07:16:16 PM
At least she shocked it first. If you cut it wrong, it starts to scream.

Hey, kids gotta learn sometime.

My parents did the same thing with Santa Claus, and I'm glad they did.

Your parents killed Santa in front of you? Did they make you tear his skin off?

Yeah - I had the same epiphany as a child when I saw my family skinning catfish alive after a fishing trip. Until then I had equated a fun day of fishing with an outstanding catfish dinner, but the whole "killing them" part hadn't yet connected in my mind. I was briefly traumatized, until my grandmother basically told me, "That's how it is, honey. We have to kill animals to eat them. That's why we stop fishing when we have enough, and why we don't waste food."

So yeah - everyone should know where their food comes from. If you can't handle the fact that the meat you eat had to be slaughtered, then perhaps you should consider vegetarianism if it bothers you that much. But no one should be willfully ignorant.

At first I thought this might have been about the F-Word, then I saw the words "for kids"

See, this part doesn't bother me.

A children's TV chef looks to have gone a little too far after killing, skinning and cooking the Easter bunny.

This part concerns me. Did they have like a brief Easter theme, then slaughter the guest of honor or something?

Gordon Ramsey had his kids help raise some turkeys that they then ate for Christmas dinner.

I don't think this guy did anything wrong. Kids should know that their meat doesn't grow in nice, clean plastic packages.

Just wait until the Christmas special.
 
2009-04-01 07:58:54 PM
given the age group. perfectly acceptable. even if they were younger, perfectly acceptable. that is the reality of a natural human function.

But Gordo didn't have his children watch the turkeys get zapped.

I don't know why anyone would eat rabbit when there are much tastier animals easily available.
 
2009-04-01 08:45:00 PM
Should have sprayed the blood in their faces while screaming incoherently about the money lenders.

Rabbits are very tasty. They make great sausage.

toddalmighty: Your parents killed Santa in front of you? Did they make you tear his skin off?

Yeah. I thought I already said that?

Now as an adult, of course, I fully realize that it was a hobo they dressed in a Santa costume, but still.
 
2009-04-01 09:38:07 PM
Gee, thanks. Now all I want is fresh rabbit stew. I guess it's as good of an excuse as any to go visit my grandparents. I wonder if they've still got some deer chops in the freezer still...

/mmmmmm wild game

Did you know that the reason lettuce crews play mariachi music is to drown out the screaming of the lettuce when they cut it?

Look at the bones man !
 
2009-04-01 10:02:24 PM
Why not?

/farm raised
//could easily dress a fish, chicken or rabbit by that age
 
2009-04-01 10:02:36 PM
Hahahaha, that's awesome! If you're going to eat meat you damn well better know that it doesn't appear magically in the grocery store, neatly wrapped in shiny plastic for your convenience.

/The cute animals taste better
//Especially pandas.

I'm even more concerned that since there's no santa, you killed, skinned and ate a homeless man.

I laughed so hard I cried. It was better than 'CATS'. I would watch it again and again.

Sarah Wiener?

Can you imagine a kid's show hosted by Sarah Wiener, here?

Don't knock it...they aren't bad if you get a young one.

haha, a rabbit, not being eaten...
 
2009-04-01 10:06:08 PM
Well, at least it was not a sibling. The teacher should have told a cute family bunny tale ---- and then bit its head off.

Shocked, the announcer asks, "What kind of family show is this?"

Everyone answers: "The farkin Aristocrats."

A hobo certainly has a rather gamey flavor compared to say, an investment banker.

Teach a man to kill and skin a homeless man...

I suggest a marinade of night train and spoiled onions to really bring out the flavor.

Why didn't you just put the bunny back in the box?
