Red Meat.....We Crave Sustenance!*

"Good Things," as Martha would say. Courtesy of Whole Foods.

I had forgotten, but thanks to Jon at Misplaced Keys, I am reminded that today is the Third Annual Eat An Animal for PETA Day. Go check out Jon's moosey contribution to the cause.

I suppose the reason the day slipped my mind is that to me "Eat an Animal Day" is the equivalent of "Breath Oxygen Day" or "Put One Foot In Front Of The Other To Walk Day". I mean, well opposed to what?

Durn, now I'm all hungry. And it's still a couple hours till dinner.....

(*As always, the floor is open for identifying the quote.)

UPDATE: Quote successfully identified. Also, thanks to Beautifully Atrocious Jeff, my appetite has been temporarily suppressed. What is "pleather" anyway? Or do I want to know?

UPDATE DEUX: Yow! Kevin at Wizbang has got again.

Mrs. LMC used to work for the American Meat Institute, a meat industry trade organization. AMI was petal to the metal. Their approach: "if it did not have a face, you should not be eating it."

Thanks for the link.. I snatched and uploaded the picture straight from Yourish's site. No hot-linking for me, man.

Spoken by Dusty (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in Twister.

I think before engorging on steaks at the aunt's house or something like that.

Well done. I had considered using the other line, "So, Meg, you slaughter your own cows. Nice!"

IMDb is my friend... one of the joys of the internet, is that memory is infinite, and recall momentary.

So long as you know what you are searching for.

(I just refreshed my post with the quote you used...) :D

pleather, I'm guessing is a petroleum product (isn't everything) and as such, she might be for animals... but she is all about the oil!
