garlicmonkey: FormlessOne: Apex predator says "what?"

Something like this. Bioaccumulation of toxins means eating an apex predator is not a good idea.


Maybe the farmers taught the lions to eat tofu?

/sounds like they are farmed rather than wild-caught

More cowardly than chicken or pork?

You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense

Repo Man: This thread reminded me of one of the most depressing books ever published. The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-vegetarian Critical Theory

It's depressing because otherwise intelligent people believe this claptrap. Humans eat meat because we evolved that way. We can choose not to, and if you do, that's fine. But conflating meat eating with patriarchy is stupid.


Stupid but easy: meat equals dick. There, you're done.

I don't buy the "it's threatened that's why it's wrong" argument. If that were the case, they'd be cool with people eating bottle nose dolphins (rated least concern by the IUCN).
People love lions and dolphins and will turn to violence over one being killed and eaten. They'll also not give a flying fark about the same animal being annihilated in the wild.

I'd only want to eat a lion after I killed it with a spear.

ZeroCorpse: Here's all you need to know:

"Is it legal to eat lions? Yes, according to the FDA's communications team. The African lion isn't currently a federally protected endangered species and it qualifies as a game meat, FDA spokesman Michael Herndon said in an e-mail."

It's legal, so all the vegetarians and vegans can f♥ck off.


Actually, I'm not bothered about the species, but I am worried about the breeding conditions of any farmed animal. So should you. shiat, i'd eat free-range organic Human, as long as the livestock got a decent upbringing, and it contributed to a better world.

I hunt wild game for food, and would hate to see, say, farmed 'wild' boar bacon in supermarkets. Especially as american marketing companies would tout the 'wild' part ad nauseam as being 'healthier', just like they mis-marketed 'organic' produce.

The Southern Dandy: I'd only want to eat a lion after I killed it with a spear.


Well in tribal days when you reached puberty if you was a male you got sent away with just the clothes on your back and a spear. You wasnt allowed to come back( and be a man and get laid) till you had the mane of a lion.

And that is how they had a m-f ratio that allowed men to have multiple wives and concubines, the weak ones got eaten.

fusillade762: Comsamvimes: My first thought was "WTF!" but then I read this:

"The lion meat is authentic, Gougeon said, and comes from a farm that raises the animals for meat. Such a practice is legal in the United States because lions are only considered threatened, and not endangered."

And now I'm pretty meh on it. Though I'm curious where this farm is.

Same here. If they're being raised for food I'm OK with it. I mean, would cows and pigs exist in their current domesticated form if we didn't eat them?


No, they've been selectively bred by people for centuries to make them better adapted to supply us with food.

/genetically modified, if you will.

I wonder how long they'll stay in business now that they've pissed enough people off.  They can serve it if it's legal, but that doesn't mean they're going to keep their usual customer base.  And how many do you think are going to flock to them just for the lion tacos at $35 a piece?  Hmmmm...   I wouldn't eat one.  Just because I'm one of those hypocritical carnivores.  I might change my mind if one day I find myself starving...but I'll shoot a squirrel for stew before I'll eat a lion.

fusillade762: skinink: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Lions sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

That part of "Pulp Fiction" always kinda bugged me, because it's not true. Pigs are only dirty because farmers cram them together in pens. They're actually quite cleanly by nature. I guess chalk it up to Jules simply being uneducated.


Really, that part of Pulp FICTION isn't true? Tell me more

b0rg9: olddinosaur: Lions are carnivores, carnivore meat does not taste as good as herbivore meat.


Yeah, besides fish, I've heard pretty much the same thing.

Gator's kind of an exception.  It's still not exceptional though, IMO.


That's been my impression of every non-water carnivore I've eaten.  Carnivores taste worse than Omnivores which taste worse than Herbivores.  Plus, not only do they taste worse, their meat is harder to stop from spoiling.  Ever tried freezing bear meat?  Doesn't work until you drop your freezer temp WELL below 28.

Probably the same idiots that are trying to get the safari ranches down here in Texas shut down.

Watched a news story on how they are saving some of these exotic species for the price of allowing people to pay shiatloads to hunt a set number of them and allowing people to go on car safaris.

UsikFark: Coelacanth: Remember the lion habitat at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas? A whole lotta of those lion cubs became dinner for Chinese high rollers when they got too big.

My understanding is that Chinese/Asian cuisine can become increasingly exotic because some people are determined to eat anything in the pursuit of potential delicacies. Some Americans will eat increasingly extravagant amounts of food for rewards of dubious value. I think we can all agree that the McRib is at the intersection of dubious reward and exotic cuisine.


The Romans rolled that way too.  Peacock tongue, anyone?

so you have no problem if someone breeds dogs and cats for meat? how is eating a lion any different than eating a cat or dog?

I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my desire to eat an antelope or a gazelle. Talk about your "fast" food! 
Ha ha ha...

Who cares where it comes from? If it's legal, it's legal.

What? You think the butcher is stealing people's beloved pet lions and grinding them up for taco meat?

What's the difference if the lions are cast-offs from roadside attractions, or raised to be meat? It's still a dead lion either way, and the lion- if alive- wouldn't care where the hell you were raised. It would eat you either way.

I say any animal that would eat me if I didn't eat it first is fair game.
