Azerbaijani scientists have recently discovered 2 new uses for sheep.

Meat and wool.

/try the veal lamb.

Israeli a problem. Kosher could buy the meat once ewe got there.

"Smuggling mutton", eh? So that's what they're calling it these days?

If you're going to be a vicious animal murderer, at least mutton is an adult animal that has lived a full life. Yet you never see it in America; no, here the bloodlust has people eating only lamb, which, true to its name is a baby animal that never even had the chance to experience life as an adult. It's about as savage as eating veal, really. Disgusting.

Q: How do the Scottish find sheep in tall grass?
A: Very satisfying!

Lamb is what you eat at home. Mutton is for foreigners -- who prefer paying more for the tougher meat.

You. Are. An. Idiot.

Not sure if you're trolling or just stupid.

I raise sheep. Most are for fleece, dairy and as breeding animals but many do go to market. A typical "lamb" is 100 - 150 lbs live weight and anywhere from 7 to 12 months old. The lifespan of a sheep is around 15 years and sheep attain adult status (able to breed) at around 5 - 7 months. So getting to "adult" endows the animal with enlightenment and superpowers or something? What constitutes a "full life" for an animal that just wanders around eating grass all day? I just took a couple of two-year-olds to the butcher, and while they are technically mutton, everyone in the US still calls it lamb. The vast majority of sheep spend a good chunk (if not all) of their lives on pasture - compare that to cattle where most spend their lives in feed lots being force fed corn. Yes, slaughtering any animal for meat is somewhat savage, but please correct your recto-cranial inversion. Also, if you want savage, investigate how animals are killed for kosher/halal meat.

Look, I like you because you are a Shagger, which means that somewhere down the line we are related. Are you part of the Irish clan? But your argument would apply equally to humans - check out this:

A typical "young adult" is anywhere 17-20 years old. The lifespan for a human is around 75 years and humans attain adult status (able to breed) at around 12-13 years. So getting to adult endows a human with enlightenment and superpowers or something? What constitutes a "full life" for a person that just works as a cog in a capitalistic machine all day?

But, if a teenage dies, we call it an absolute tragedy, while when a 60 year old dies, it is merely sad. Why is that?

SHEEP AREN'T PEOPLE

We are people, however. We are, as terrible and cruel as it is, at the top of the food chain (outside of Australia). Simply by being the dominant species of the planet, most anything we do impacts every other organism below us, often negatively. That's nature.

If you want to give up your place in the ecosystem so sheep or lemurs or whatever can have a crack at inventing antibiotics or monoplanes, go right ahead. I'm going to stay where I'm at though.

This does hilariously illustrate another fundamental difference between our existence and that of animals: You think Dolly the sheep has the intellect or awareness to feel so guilt-stricken about her subjugation of other species that she would decide to go lick rocks in a cave so the rabbits can have some grass?

Not Clone Dolly, I'm talking about New Zealand Dolly who is currently vaccum-sealed and chilling out at Trader Joes. I'mma pay her a visit this afternoon.

Isn't that the big difference? Unlike other animals, we have things like intellect and compassion. Well, some of us, anyways...

never had disgusting veal, always a great taste, and had my first bite of lamb a few years ago. now i eat it every chance i get.
for some reason my parents never once tried making anything with lamb. plenty of beef, chicken and pork dishes, but no lamb. i had lamb chops first but then tried real shepherd's pie, yum.

Good stewardship, even Compassion...that's one thing. Voluntarily ceding one's place in the ecosystem...I just feel that's too far the other extreme. I like middle roads.

So you're saying we should eat teenagers instead of lamb?

So if a train surfing teen dies though his own stupidity, it's a tragedy. But when Ghandi was assassinated, it was merely sad. Because he was an old fart and not all new and shiny. Got it.

It doesn't have anything to do with the level of self awareness of the human vs a sheep. Nothing to do with the fact that the teen spent his entire life up to that point getting an education and preparing to become a useful, contributing member of society. We should never consider the achievements or potential of an individual, just if they had a chance to convert more oxygen to carbon dioxide. OK, you convinced me.

And you still missed the point that the "lamb" was hardly ripped from his mother's teat and roasted alive to become somebody's dinner. I guess any lamb that's not suitable for other purposes should be kept for at least a decade before we eat it.

Good thing it wasn't a Turkish minister. They might have had to break out the high chairs for that meeting.
