I did this to my brother’s ‘Meal’ while he was gone. I wonder what his reaction will be…
tbh this would be really smart to do on meat packaging, but then again, how well did the warning on the cigarette box work? ehh
I’d eat it anyway because you’re a self righteous asshole. If I was your brother, I’d probably take it out of the package and put it in your bed too.
Breaking news: putting a photo of a food’s source on the food itself makes you a self-righteous asshole.
Do you find these offensive, too? Or are they only offensive when they remind you of the sentient victims whose exploitation was necessitated by your taste preferences?
^^^^ OOOOH BURRRN
Not vegan or vegetarian, but OP, I FREAKIN LOVE THIS!
1. Goats, chickens, sheep, and cows are not sentient. The sentience of pigs could be debated. 2. Chicks are not the source of chicken breast meat. Could be a component of chicken McNuggets.
I do personally think Americans should calm down on their fucking meat cravings because the average American eats wayyy too much fucking meat and they’re literally rotting their insides but a little bit of meat is not harmful to your health (there is the moral component but if, say, you raise your own chickens and cows or get it from a small-time farm that actually treats their animals right from birth to death, you can alleviate at least a little bit of that cosmic guilt).
I dunno. I’m all about moderation myself. Maybe putting pictures (accurate pictures) on the food WOULD make a few people think twice about how much meat they eat. I know I feel HORRIBLE every time we do shrink at work because I just look at all the food in the trash and just think about what a waste of life it all was.
And raising awareness about the state of slaughter facilities and even just living facilities is really important because the animals should NEVER be treated cruelly and it’s important to stop animal abuse.
But I dunno. I do eat meat. Not a lot of meat. Maybe one small thing a day. The majority of my food comes from other sources. Which I think would be the most efficient balance of meat vs. vegetable for both health and moral reasons. I don’t really think either extreme is wholly healthy (at least not for everyone, literally everyone’s dietary needs are different).
That’s just my two cents. I wouldn’t be opposed to putting pictures on the food, though I don’t think doing it out of spite or some holier-than-thou way is effective or funny.
