There is actually a National Pork Board?
I find it sick with all these food companies that have a smiling pig or cow on there. Its so far from the truth. However I guess that if they do it that way, a lot of people will not ponder or realize what actually goes on in there.
Actually those cartoons I see are one of the reasons I turned Vegan now that you bring it up.
I know, Koll, I cannot believe that there is a National Pork Board either!!!!
That is freakin just too much, man. I couldnt go and look at the link Brendan provided because i get REALY upset when I see this crap and i cannot handle it anymore - i feel like I need to punch a wall or something.
ANd I totally agree with you on the stupid cartonns or pictures that meat companies have uisng a smiling cow or a pig !!! As if, like you guys all pointed out, the cow or the pig is thrilled about being scalded alive or delimbed while fully conscious and hung upside down while fully conscious to be bled to death, one slow, painful, long miserable drop at a time!!!!
And this in turn further somehow makes it okay in peoples minds to eat meat!!! Dont people have common sense anymore - cant they realize that those pictures and images of HAPPY animals are LIGHT YEARS away from the truth??
NOw that I think about it, it is the same with the whole "I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner" slogan/song that the company gets kids to sing!! As if anybody would wish to be a raped, tortured and murdered animal!!! Kids dont know that they are being lied to by the Oscar Meyer Weiner company but what PISSES me off is when the parents allow this crap. They allow
their kids to grow up with misinformation about the meat and dairy industries and it is sick. I TOTALLY disapprove of lying to your children about ethical and important social justice issues.
Even if as a meat eating parent you dont mind the abuse of animals, give your kids the correct information - in an age appropriate way of course - and let them decide if they want to be a selfish unethical meat eater like you!!! Hopefully, they will have more morals than the parents!!!
