A strange breed
« on: 06 July 2019, 18:08:29 »

Got a leaflet through the letterbox from a frozen food store advertising a lot of their offers among which was packs of meat free chicken pieces :o It must be a very strange breed of chicken not to have any meat on it :D

I don't get why vegans/veggos need 'meat flavoured sausages' etc... if meat is that repugnant to you, why do you then want to replicate its flavour/texture. ??

Probably due to not wanting the death of an animal but replicating what we all enjoy. The flavour and texture of meat. I have always said that anyone wanting to eat meat ought to take a life at least once. Poultry or a pig. It isn't that easy. Most people don't identify meat with an actual animal. It is just something you buy from a supermarket in a packet.

Tomas Schaffernaker the weather man was 35 before he found out that Lamb and Sheep were the same animal.

Mary had a little lamb...

You would have to be a complete moron to not be aware of that.

He was on would I lie to you. Might still be available on iplayer.

It is stuff like that that make you realise the huge gaps in peoples basic knowledge. Hats off to the man though for admitting it on TV.

Remember that spoof April Fool's Day BBC Panarama programme in the late 1950's that featured spaghetti growing on trees!! Many believed it, but I can just remember my parents falling about with laughter over it ;D ;D

People, quite naturally, can be ignorant if they know no different ;)

Before TV, and going back to children who had no access to the countryside, many a child never knew where any meat, eggs, or milk came from. They just eat the stuff, liked it, and were only too thankful to have it as food :)

Lizzie, do a poll now of children. I think we would be surprised at where they think meat and milk comes from ( other than supermarkets of course).

My 'little girl' is now 30 but when she was about 4 or 5 she made the connection with the little frolicking lambs in the fields with what we'd just had for Sunday Dinner .....  ??? :-\ :-\ :-\

Thought lamb came from Tesco's, and eggs came in boxes.
