Crazy About Que

Oh, we go back and forth on this topic. A few years ago, we had this to say about the prospect of insane animals being consumed:
... as natural and wholesome as it is to exploit the suffering and credulity of reality-deprived lunatics, we can't help feeling a twinge of regret.
We went so far as to include the depiction in our long-running (and Emmy award-winning) Festival of Cruelty series.

Now we're placing it within a context of standard suicidefoodistic iconography. Has our stance softened? (Has it hardened?) Aw, who knows. All we can say is this pig—and maybe the cow and chicken behind him—can't wait to dedicate their lives and deaths to the Great Institution (formerly known as barbecue). Their minds might be infected by noxious delusions, but who among us can claim to live a life completely free of misapprehension?

Let us give the straightjacketed pig consideration. Let us—at last!—give all the lunatic animals the respect they deserve.

This must be where "mad cow disease" comes from...
