The Onion: There's No Such Thing As Happy Meat

Living off Grid/CC BY 2.0

TreeHuggers often wrestle with the question Is It OK To Eat Happy Meat, Or Is It All Murder? or What is "Humane Meat" Supposed to Achieve? The Onion deals with the issue as only it can, with We Raise All Our Beef Humanely On Open Pasture And Then We Hang Them Upside Down And Slash Their Throats.

Our independently owned family farm is committed to one guiding principle: making sure that you, the customer, receive the best-tasting, highest quality beef from cows that are healthy, active, and eventually suspended fully conscious inside a facility thick with hot, blood-choked air and the frantic bellows of dangling, profoundly fearful animals.

Brilliant.
