Did I just step in that?

I can’t help it – I just stumbled upon this. Do not ask me how. The pinko-hippy-numbnuts over at GoVeg.com have a post titled: Top 10 Reasons Not to Eat Pigs. I’ve compiled my own list of the:
Top 10 Reasons Not to Eat Pigs:

  1. You’re not that hungry right now
  2. There’s not a pig handy right now
  3. You just finished eating pig (see number 1)
  4. You’re asleep
  5. (And 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) You’re eating one of the other 6 animals that GoVeg.com doesn’t want you to eat (I cheated – sue me).


Animals eat other animals. Get over it. People are animals. Get over it. Trust me, if a pig was hungry enough, it would use all of the cognitive resources it had on hand to acquire the most succulent morsels of grass-fed Bob the Vegan it could get. Come to think of it, the fact that none of the other pigs would try to lay a holier-than-thou guilt trip on him would put them one step ahead of the typical GoVeg.com reader. 

I’m crushing toes here. I know it. I don’t have to explain anything, but I will anyway. Step inside my dark and tormented life. My grandfather was, among many other things, a pit-master. He owned an open-pit joint in Daytona. My very first food memory is of a pork rib (2-1/2 down – OK, go here if I lost you) as a pacifier. My dad was an animal scientist. I grew up eating animals, around animals. (Could it be that all that pork made me bitter and intolerant of judgmental hippies?) My dad is partly responsible for us having fresh eggs and good, healthy and tasty chicken and turkey in the supermarkets. I’m not blowing smoke up your skirt – it’s a fact, you can look it up (and no, I’m not going to post who my dad was or who he worked for – he’s a quiet, retired gentleman in his 70’s and doesn’t need a bunch of hippy PETA freaks standing outside his house). I grew up without the marketing gimmicks, trendy buzzwords and misinformation that are all about selling the same item, with a different name, for more money.

I’m saving some for future posts, but hear this:

  • Free-range does not mean what you think it means
  • Commercial producers DO NOT pump their animals full of steroids and growth hormones (Would you eat Lyle Alzado?)Steriods - mmm, tasty
  • The drugs given to animals are not to make them bigger, fatter, more evil, whatever – they are to protect them and you from disease, parasites, pestilence, vegans, etc.
  • I do not work in the food industry, pharmaceutical industry, etc.
  • Patchouli (aka. Hippy Phermone) smells bad. I mean, it really stinks. Post that GoVeg.com

I’m not trying to be judgemental here, just don’t post your ideas and opinions as facts. If you insist on doing so, know and include ALL the facts. Not just the ones that suit your agenda.
