Here at Zomppa, we have meat eaters, vegetarians, flexitarians, vegans. Whether people choose to eat meat or not (please no name calling), we must all be ever more cognizant of where our food comes from.
If you ever plan to eat bacon, a hot dog, or any kind of pig meat again, please watch this video that Andrew Sullivan posted yesterday. But WARNING, it is REALLY graphic. I’m not usually squeamish, but this made me squeamish. You won’t want to watch while you’re eating or in front of young children.
Sometimes we (myself included) have a tendency to say, oh, it’s just one slice of bacon…what difference would it make? Well, it can. So if you choose to eat meat, please make an effort to know how the animal was raised.
Pigs are NOT BOUNCY.
