They're made out of meat.

Why has meat eating risen in America? Because your Mom is that old subby.

With only two posts, there seems to be plenty of room in here for more meat, right next to the mashed potatos.

Because it tastes amazing.

I had a filet mignon last night with some mixed veggies. It just wouldn't have been the same if it was just veggies and bread.

Why do I eat meat? Because broccoli doesn't bleed.

Oddly enough, my wife has observed that I treat chicken like a vegetable. Not if it's deep fried, though...

There was a reddit thread a week or two ago where non-Americans could ask Americans questions about America that they had always wondered (in a more organized way than onesie-twosie).

The top comment/question was "I always wondered how you Americans could eat so much food and get so fat. Then I visited. I don't wonder anymore because your food tastes amazing."

People in NYC are expected to put $70/pound lamb on the table when guests visit? F*ck that noise. That's "served at a high-end restaurant" rates, even in the tourist area of Charleston.

The 1% in NYC. The regular folk don't do stuff like that. Maybe go get some nice meat from the butcher, but nowhere near $70/lb.

Yet most people have no idea of most of those factors.

In my part of NYS, if they really like you, they'll share some of that yearling doe they shot. If they *REALLY* like you, you get the backstrap. Otherwise, you'll get something off the gamey ass-end of that ancient 10-pointer they shot.

Guy goes from Oklahoma to Paris and notices food is more expensive? THE HELL YOU SAY!

Open air markets in Paris were just flat amazing. Chantilly, I think, we went to one as well, while they were starting a renaissance-fair type thing too. Just wonderful. I love France. What I've seen of it, anyway.
