Tasty, Tasty Murder

I saw this classic Threadless t-shirt on sale for $9 today, and I thought to myself, I'm glad I eat meat.

I don't feel any guilt about eating the delicious flesh of animals killed solely to satisfy my hunger. None at all. Should I?

  1. What a delicious t-shirt. I'm getting one. Thanks for the pointer!

    Oh, and, no, you need not feel guilty. Never.

  2. Loves it. Ordered one for my husband as soon as it came back into stock. And on sale to boot! Count us in as two more happy meat eaters.

  5. I think there is nothing wrong with eating meat. It's how the animals are treated during their lives and during the end of their life. Support local farms if you can find them. There is usually at least one meat raising local farm at the farmers market here in baltimore. Anyway, if that doesn't appeal to you, let me put it in different terms: Free range meat tastes better and is of higher quality. It is also less likely to make you ill from processing. As a foodie, even if I wasn't concerned about animal treatment, I would want relatively high quality food products...

  6. Here at Foodgoat, we firmly believe in eating "living the good life" cows. Nothing beats the taste out of a cow that gets to live its life.

    We try our best to always eat good quality meat, but have some short comings like Fast-food joints (Can you say In-and-Out). But we always avoid meat from terrible places when we can like Walmart.

    Buy Local
    Buy Fresh Happy Cows
    And make something good.


    I have to buy one of these shirts and wear it to a PETA protest.

  7. you ought also consider the intense energy implications of any meat which is grain fed. in addition to being energy intensive, grain fed animals are generally less healthy, measning more meds and worse tasting meat.

    pasture raised animals (cows, goats, lamb, etc) are better for the planet and better for you!

    i don't think the argument should be about whether or not to eat meat, but how MUCH meat AND how that meat is raised/grown?
