China White Tea: I don't really see what the problem is.  Someone suggested to me the other day that the meat in the Chinese food I was eating "might be stray cat."

I thought about it for a minute, decided it tasted pretty good, and as long as it wasn't diseased, riddled with live parasites, or otherwise going to harm me that I didn't really give a fark.


You should ask them why any Chinese restaurant would go to the effort of trapping, killing, stripping and cleaning a stray cat when they can just get 200 pounds of deboned chicken for about $99 bucks at Costco.

It doesn't make sense!

About 90-99% of the birds on Pacific Islands went extinct because of the introduction of predators into island ecologies which evolved without them. Cats, dogs, rats, mongoose, pigs, horses, cattle, and many other animals were accidentally or intentionally introduced and wham! bam!, there they weren't, many of the rarest, oldest and most beautiful species on Earth disappeared in the twinkling of an historical eye.

So I guess what I'm saying is tuck in with my blessing. The more you eat, the less likely they are to eat you. And try the rat on a stick. It's delicious!

If you were eating cat you'd notice. Land predators are not very tasty and tender unless they are bred for it. Rats are bred especially for food and most of us know that the Koreans and Chinese have bred dogs for centuries as food.

In the sea, it's the other way round. The sea is a sort of topsy-turvy world with respect to the land and vice versa. Sea predators include blue fin tuna, salmon, and many of the tastiest game fish.

I don't see why people shouldn't be allowed to eat some pretty disgusting things if they like so long as they don't 1) force other people to join in; 2) steal the animals; 3) abuse the animals; 4) slaughter them inhumanly or 5) spread disease and pollution.

I would draw the line myself at anything that can do an amusing trick. Or that might be smarter than the stupidest humans. Whales, dolphins, chimpanzees, apes, monkeys, cats, dogs ... all too smart and cute and human like. Elephants might be smarter than some humans--they've shown signs of many human traits, possibly even the ability to recognize dead elephant bones as former family members or friends.

On the other hand, horses are obviously as dumb as cows or very close, while being cute and cuddly looking doesn't mean you are. So seals and horses seem to be fair game although not in my personal cookbook.

Your loss.  Fish is delicious.

Yup, and so can pigs. Should Hawaiians suddenly give up their beloved SPAM?

Damn dude, are you always so quick to write off entire ethnicities?  You wan't to go on sheer numbers, white people are some of the most racist farks out there.  Screw them too?

No, by any measure white people are one of if not the least racist race on the planet. Put your white guilt away and look at the big picture. There are countries outside of those with white majorities, you just don't want to think of them because they're bad places to live if you're not a native.

shazbotuh: Slaxl: shazbotuh: Slaxl: Yes, it is sick that they seek to legislate their own tastes and standards and force everyone to be like they are.


What if it was your dog or cat that suddenly went missing... pets escape all the time- only there it's more likely they'd end up on someone's plate.

*ctrl+f "catsup" - 0 results*

The only cat i'd have is one that's served up with fries, and... (snerk!!) Catsup!

Thank you, I'm here all night. Try the veal kitty.


How 'bout NO.


Mmmm so plump and juicy!

So pigs are out? What about cephalopods? Squid seem to be very intelligent.

I'm sure the fail is on me, but I was trying to make a larger point about writing off entire populations based off of one's personal experience. 2010 cencus has ~800,000 identifying as native Hawaiian (including mixes). It's not hard to imagine a larger number of racist dirt bags living in the south. Of course I agree with you that percentage wise, white people are low on the "racist as a whole" list.

Do you have to be white to have white guilt?

/not white

That's already going on.... visit pretty much any chicken farm or beef lot in the country... and consider the fact that french fries were deep fried in beef tallow until the 90s.. not exactly vegan-friendly.

But that's a whole other convo.

netizencain: Hawaiians are some of the most racist farks out there.


Actually...you're very right about that.  I wouldn't go so far as to say "screw them," but I've never been called the n-word more than I was in Hawaii.

FTA: "Dogs are people too, because they have the ability to experience emotions." Well if that's the bar we're going to set, we better stop eating any animals.

"Dogs are people too, because they have the ability to experience emotions," Shiraki said. "Please protect these animals."

Actually, all animals "experience emotions", including cows, chickens, pigs, turkeys, fish, elephants, bears.  A dog fears death and pain no more than a cow fears death and pain, or a human for that matter, given the chance, all go kicking and screaming to their death!

Enjoy your bacon/dog.

Every time I read an article like this I want to get that warm and fuzzy feeling by breaking into an animal shelter and skewering all the cats and dogs.
