Here’s a fun little intellectual exercise:

Letting meat eaters drown is ethical because of the suffering they cause to animals, an Oxford University academic has controversially argued.

There’s nothing “controversial” about it.  His only supporters are going to be rabid vegans, and other so-called intellectuals, whereas the rest of us would drive him from the village, pelting him with stones and rotten fruit on his way out.  Apart from the chilling indifference, the application of such a judgmental credo in a life-or-death situation is not only awful but contrary to human nature.  (One can only imagine the “HHHAAATTTERRRR!” abuse that would come my way if I were to suggest that letting vegans drown under similar situations would at least lower the shrillness of society’s ambient background noise…)

That said, if I came upon said asshole burning to death in the street, I might actually pause for a moment before pissing on him to extinguish the flames, so maybe I’m not much better than he is.

By the way, here’s another little intellectual exercise for you.  Ignoring his nationality for a moment, do you think this bastard’s philosophy would be found more often in Democrat, or Republican voters?

Food for thought.


  1. “You ever plow a field? To plant the quinoa or sorghum or whatever the hell it is you eat…you kill everything on the ground and under it. You kill every snake, every frog, every mouse, mole, vole, worm, quail… You kill them all. So, I guess the only real question is: How cute does an animal have to be before you care if it dies to feed you?” — John Dutton, Yellowstone.

    1. someone marked up a billboard from PTA with animals on it. The billboard asked where you draw the line on which animals to eat. All they way to the left was a line marked “trying to bang the hot vegan chick.” Th eline moved further down the line towards “very hungry during the apocolypse.”


  2. Don’t plants have feelings too? I’m sure I heard that from one of my local enviroweenie’s. Vegans are heartless hypocrite’s destroying and cooking all those semi sentient plants.

  3. Where would this planet be if hundreds or thousands of years ago mankind decided to just live off the fruits, nuts and plants that grew in our generally vicinity, and ignored meat as a food source? I think those meaty critters would be eating all the fruits, nuts and plants, and we would have disappeared hundreds of years ago.

  4. I have yet to meet a bright vegan. I think they suffer from vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition then inflict it upon the rest of us.

    Rest assured that our food craps on their food.


  5. I’m reminded of the old joke:

    You’re sitting on the beach in the sun when you realize that, out at sea, there’s a politician and a lawyer, both drowning. You would only have time to rescue one of them, so you have to make a choice. Do you crack another beer or put on more sunscreen?

    Substitute “vegan” and “democrat” for an updated version.

  6. Absolutely correct GS.
    Food comes from the store because – when people buy some
    food from the store it magically REAPPEARS the next day or next
    They think the same about electricity because to use all you have
    to do is plug that thingie into the wall !! That’s why we can ALL
    drive glorified golf carts TODAY !
    Your gonna find that their reasoning, curiosity, thinking processes
    in general, are all at about that level across the board !

    1. Don’t know about anybody else, but I like the idea of cooking assorted meat over vegetable-based products, such as hickory or apple wood chips. If this p*sses off the plant eaters, I’ll be happy to eat their share of the beef, pork, poultry, fish, or mystery meat, too. They can wander off and do some of that “free range” grazing they’re always talking about.

  7. This Oxford academic can suck my gaucho

    In addition to our jobs as a shop lady and a lawyer, respectively, my wife and I are 3rd generation beef cattle farmers

  8. I’ve told vegetarians/vegans that if it came to it, in order to get the steak, roast, hamburger I wnated, I’d go out and kill the cow myself. Hand me the butcher knives, a length of rope, and a sledgehammer – Bossy’s going down!

    And I wouldn’t drown. I’d be wearing a life vest made from petroleum sourced materials.

  9. I can and have taken critters from walking around to being on the plate. Our ancestors farmed so they would not starve and that was when everyone hunted something. We live in a food paradise now, with more choices than our ancestors ever had. Everyone today can eat better than a king ever did.

    Course that is not good enough for our betters. Bunch of fucking idiots.

  10. “Letting meat eaters drown is ethical because of the suffering they cause to animals, an Oxford University academic has controversially argued.”

    Now their secret’s out! They hate their cats!
