‘Eating Animals’

Jonathan Safran Foer vs. Lierre Keith

Do NOT buy this book.

Recently, I’ve been reading more and more news articles about a book called Eating Animals. At first, I thought this was going to be some sort of awesome cookbook or essays about eating some pretty tasty animals. Instead, I found a book that goes against the things that every unvegan stands for. I haven’t read the book, because I don’t think the author or publisher deserves any of my money, but I know enough to place an unvegan ban on the vegan propaganda.

The book is so insidious that it has turned the adorable Natalie Portman into a sudden vegan who compares eating meat with rape. This cannot stand!

A Theory I Can Get Behind

While perusing the blogosphere (with the help of Google Alerts) I came across a great blog entry by a guy named Jeff Erno. In it, he theorizes on why people should eat animals rather than plants. A lot of this theory stems from the fact that animals are simply a safer food to eat.

He explains, “If you are an animal then evasion seems a great way to avoid predation. Run faster. Climb higher. Fly…” These are things that plants simply cannot do. Instead, for the most part, plants became toxic or poisonous to avoid predation.
