Meat is murder …

Some of the comments on my recent post on Impossible Burgers and market solutions to social problems reminded me of this excellent cartoon.

    Vegans will probably die of malnutrition.

    Soylent green now!

  3. Once carnivorous plants can be convinced to go Vegan, I might consider following suit. Nah! Even then I wouldn’t.

    I’ve been outside handing lumps of mince to a harried pair of currawongs whilst their giant welfare recipient (a channel-billed cuckoo chick) goes WAH every two seconds in the tree above us.

    Given enough mince the cuckoo kid shuts up and the foster parents get a brief moment of peace. So do I and all my neighbours. It has quite an appetite, so it takes several relays to cuckoo for that to happen.

    Vegans will be horrified with me! My answer to them is thousands of insects have been spared because of the beef mince.

    Are you going to make a habit of quoting Morrissey, Doomlord?

    I only know a few vegans.
    They are the healthiest people I know.

    When all the cows and sheep are gone what will happen to New Zealand?
    Just as well i got here in time.
    Sheep numbers have gone down bigtime in recent years.
    Still there is Tasmania…

    Bruce are the cuckoos edible?

  9. I was going to ask, Rafe, but decided not to.
    Bruce, why don’t you just pull the bludger out and let the Currawongs raise their own?

    Mixed stories WS. I was wrong about the peewees raising a channel-bill, they have two gorgeous authentic peewee chicks. Never can tell how a soap opera will turn out…

    The currawongs nest a fair distance away in the bush, and only turn up with cuckoo chicks well after they’ve fledged. This kid is full size. It should fly off in a week or two and stop being a fake currawong.

    Btw – Sorry for hijacking the thread. My first comment was intended to raise a relevant philosophical question. The Left never seems to think things through, and they don’t mind being complete hypocrites either.

    Getting back near the topic the strip is great, not one i know so more is welcome.

    Why would an ovine tourist want to be fleeced in Tasmania?

  15. I was mowing the lawn/dirt yesterday and the Willie Wagtail mum had the kids hopping about, grabbing things that hopped out of the cut grass.
    Nearly ran over one, but pulled up in time.
    Mum went batshit at the kid.
    Ha!
