Wisconsin 101: In a happy place


My friend S: I don't eat meat.

Me: More for me.

S: I don't like the way animals are treated.

Me: I can see that.

S: But I love my ostrich cowboy boots.

Me: They're gorgeous.

S: I am convinced the ostriches lived a long, happy life and died of natural causes before being turned into my boots.

Me: Their lives were for a greater purpose. I'm sure it would have made them happy to know.

Belief is a powerful thing.

I don't like the way animals are treated; we treat them better than people.
I think they should be held accountable, or harvested for whatever good use humans can find for their bits and parts. That includes bears, seals, sharks, coyotes, and all the rest.
Nouveau vegetarian, I bet. Worse than new converts to various religions, or ex-smokers
