    Talking Lion meat

    Apparently, there is a place in Illinois selling Lion burgers and there is a change.org petition to stop a restaurant in kansas that serves "exotic meats" such as crocodile, water buffalo, and yes lion from selling lion meat on their menu. So, would you eat a lion burger?

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Huh, I wonder how lion would taste.

    Unless the species is endangered, I don't understand why people start crying about things like this.

    I don't want to eat exotic animals, but unless they're endangered, I don't care if other people do.

    I'd like to see more cruelty-free food production, though.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'd like to make bets on how long it'll take before public news media is asking slippery slope questions like, "Today, lion burgers; tomorrow, unwanted poverty-born baby burgers. What is America coming to??"

    Of course I would eat lion meat.

    It's no more cruel to eat an individual animal because it's endangered.

    Imagine if we were on a plane. 10 people 9 parachutes. 9 are white and one is an eskimo*. He gets the parachute over you because eskimos are "endangered". Has human suffering somehow been avoided? Same number of deaths, just differently distributed among groups.

    Same goes for animals.

    *Yes eskimo. No, not "innuit".

    I've tried Ostrich, emu, stingray, a few bugs, crocodile, alligator, springbok, kudu, zebra, camel, goat, chicken, beef, pork, deer, shark, various fish, wildebeast, and I'm 90% sure I can add dog to that list. I may be forgetting a few things here and there, but I have most of it.

    I would definitely try lion if given the opportunity.

    Nah. They aren't gay lion burgers, afterall.

    Is it okay to eat gay lions?

    it sounds like a socio-political mine field to me.

    Not sure if it's okay or not, but now that you've pointed how loaded the joke was all I can think about is a restaurant that only served gay animals, and what kind of clientele that sort of a place would attract.

    The mind reels.
