To all you hunters.

h/t to My Hunting Spot

Words fail me.

I think I'll just go pick some chips off the Doritos tree in the backyard to go with the stiff drink I think I need right now.

Talk about the dumbing down of America....

There you have it. Living proof that you can't fix stupid...

Classic case of "gutpile denial."

George said...

From the sounds of it, Brigid, I guess I needed a good laugh this morning. Thanks for releasing it!

Regards

You don't suppose that someone was putting us on, do you?

BobG said...

To hell with Doritos; I want to know where to get a bacon tree.

The newspaper loon must be from the Soylent Green crowd.....
Sorry Brigid, I had to.

Steve said...

I laughed so hard I cried.

And then read the comments. I have to agree that it is scary that someone could be that ignorant. And even scarier that that someone actually votes. And is not alone in their ignorance.

Ah, the fruits of a tofu diet...

davkt said...

That has to be the funniest while at the same time most worrying thing I've read in a long time!
Though don't think it is only America that can come out with things like that, its regularly reported over this side of the atlantic that that a high proportion of inner city kids are quite sure meat is made in a factory before been delivered to the supermaket. Happy to say all my kids know where their food comes from, rabbits with fur on, pheasants with feathers on, fish the kids have caught themselves and other such goodies regularly appear in my kitchen and even the 5 year old helps me prep them.

Sigboy said...

I think I need a stiff drink as well after that one. Perhaps we should give a butchering class so that people can see where the different cuts of meat come from?

davkt said...

Good idea Sigboy though over here the BBC have done just that with a brilliant TV series called 'Kill it, Cook it, Eat it' Took a bunch of folks without much clue where food comes from (including at least one life long vegetarian) out hunting for all sorts of game, then had them prep, cook and eat what they had shot. Well worth watching if it appears in North America.

My first thought was to wonder if it was some kind of joke. Then I just had to shake my head at the level of stupidity on display. There are people who are unbelievably ignorant of reality.

If God didn't want us to eat animals, then why did he make them taste so good?

Hope you don't mind, this one's strait on my blog too

BobG, everyone knows that Bacon doesn't grow on trees. Sheesh.

It grows on bushes. Smoked bacon comes from the tall variety, and unsmoked bacon comes from the low bush variety.

We just planted a Sirloin Tip tree last year, but here in Massachusetts, I expect it will take 4 or 5 years before it blossoms.

Armed US Citizen said...

un-freakin-believable! Wait, no, I guess I believe this. So many Americans walk around in a clouded hippie haze with no clue about anything! And then they vote away our rights to people like Obama, Pelosi and the like!

Keep America Safe!

JeanC said...

Oh ye Ghodz!

SIGH!!!!!!!!!

immagikman said...

I'd just laugh, but I kid you not....I run into people who never think it through. They just do not put 2 and 2 together. Meat = Animal.

Don't kid yourself into thinking people aren't stupid enough to think that the meat in the store is Animal free.

I love PETA

(That is: People for the Eating of Tasty Animals)

Sven said...

OY......That big'ol plains Muley buck didn't feel a thing. Probably didn't hear the shot that stopped his heart. We are still eatin' off that big boy.

As Bugs Bunny is wont to say:

"Whadda'Maroo-o-on!

WilliamtheCoroner said...

You have got to be kidding me.

My plain to raise bunnies in the backyard is looking better and better.

Anonymous said...

Makes me feel a little better about my plan for when it really falls completely apart.

They're stringy and prob'ly taste like s*#!!, but eating liberals might keep one alive.

Goatroper

Rob said...

But... but it's not April Fools' Day yet. That means... no, I can't believe there's someone out there that damn dumb. Wait, yes I can. And his own personal holiday is coming up.

TJP said...

It's one of either two things:

1. Tony Banta syndrome. "I can't wait until these guys start sheddin'." (See 'Taxi', TV show)

- or -

2. The Onion's "Desperate Vegetarians Declare Cow 'A Plant'"

Myron said...

Holy Jumpin' Jeezus. They walk among us, don't they?

And you guys talking about eating the stupid and the liberals, damn I repeat myself, must not believe we are what we eat, huh?

Old NFO said...

Hoo boy... They are alive and they breed... sigh

Ed said...

Went to Safeway to buy the meat where no animals were harmed. All I could find was animal crackers --the butcher looked at me funny when I asked him to slice them real thin.....they don't taste like harmed store bought meat. But then again free range Elk tastes a lot better than most store bought meat!

Cliff47 said...

That they vote is not as disturbing as the fact that they are breeding. That really bothers me.

Ted, Look out! That's not a bacon tree... it's a Ham bush!

The more people become estranged from nature, the more unhinged they become.

I've been working in the garden and butchering meat since I was old enough to pull weeds, work a hoe, or run a skinning blade. Survival isn't easy, always pleasant, and without tears or blood poured out.

Brigid said...

Somerled - yes, so I well know. Life comes with great pain, and with incredible reward.

My dad raised rabbits when I was growing up so I got a very early education in what "preparing your own" really meant. It is a great and plentiful source of tasty meat and if I lived in the country now I would probably do it myself. My sister always wondered why I never played with or named any of our rabbits...I knew where they were going and who was going to put them there...they were food to me, not pets.

The Freeholder said...

I believe the word you're looking for is...

FAIL

I've been using it a lot lately. Since a certain event, they just seem to be coming out of the woodwork, or from under their rocks or whatever. It's sad, really.

Anonymous said...

Aw, dontcha know Brigid - meat from the store isn't from animals - its PEOPLE! Yay Soylent Green!

With kind thoughts toward Charleton Heston . . . RIP Chuck.

I'm a disappointment to PETA I guess - their idea of a meal is a heaping bowl of steam.

I like THICK, hearty bacon slices, the kind it looks like you cut off the animal while it was still alive and attempting to wriggle away to escape.

Little Joe said...

Funny but I don't believe anyone is that stupid. I haven't seen anyone cite the reference this article came from yet.

I'd bet someone made it up to get a good laugh out of folks.

I'm may be stupid, but...

Roberta X said...

"Harm-free" store-made meat? Don't be fooled: they torture tofu until it bleeds! Oh, the awfulness....

Mike said...

It's someone being ironic.

Besides, meat doesn't come from the store. I got a look out back once. There was a truck there.

argonel said...

I was going to say real meat doen't have a bar cod. then I started thinking of tiger, and zebra, then I started drooling and got distracted.

As noted other places, if animals weren't meant to be eaten, they wouldn't be made out of meat.
