I’d argue that the person who doesn’t want China to eat dogs must logically NOT EAT OTHER ANIMALS. You don’t have to embrace a pig as a pet, you just have to recognize that pigs are smarter than dogs and if you can’t even do that much, at least acknowledge that they lead horrific lives and terrifying deaths. That’s where logic should get you. One of my favorite parts about Eating Animals is when Foer suggests that if we really gave a shit about sustainability, we would eat the millions of animals that are killed in our nation’s shelters each year. Real Talk.
I love how a lot of commenters (note to self: DON’T READ COMMENTS EVER) are totally all, “Oh I’d eat fluffy! Dish it up!” It’s like, okay go to the shelter, adopt a dog, and then murder it with your carving knife. Then skin, debone, and fry him or her up. What you’ll be doing is still a lot more humane than how it goes down right now in China.
Now, for me, I don’t want to deal with any of that shit and that’s why I choose to be vegan. The rest of you, enjoy Fido!
Tuna Rolls, now synonymous with diarrhea, discharge, and fraud! »
If the idea of eating raw fish didn’t turn you off already (seriously? DISGARSTING!), I don’t know if the news that ordering a Tuna Roll could end with both bizarre cases of diarrhea (WTF, mate?) and waxy intestinal discharge is going to do much to change your mind.
For the rest of you: Scientists doing DNA testing at Sushi Restaurants (in order to make identifying species of fish easier and more efficient) have discovered that many of these restaurants are either serving an endangered species of tuna, fish that couldn’t be identified, or fish that could pose a health hazard to the diner (did i mention waxy intestinal discharge?).
Here’s an idea: Stop eating fish!
