The Absurdity

I went to a slaughterhouse/meatpacker today. It was part of my work. It's the second one that I've been to, but this was pigs (previous was chickens) and it was H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E.

I almost vomitted when they took us on the "kill floor". I did NOT watch the pigs die, I would probably have tried to free them if they took me to that section.

I saw:
1. penises removed
2. animals cut into parts
3. entrails falling out
4. kidneys, lungs and hearts dangling in the air
5. and plenty more.

I came home and immeditately took a shower, but I can't get the smell out of my nostrils. I can taste dead pig, and I don't eat meat. Really, if I wasn't a vegetarian before I would be now. It reaffirmed my belief that if you couldn't watch it get to your plate then you shouldn't consume it.

Like I said-H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E

oh. my. god...Seriously i'm having a hard time not crying after reading that....those poor poor animals.....

I just wanted a movie a while ago that took place in a slaughter house. Fast food nation?? i think that was it. I found that movie horribly disturbing. DON'T watch it if you haven't already.

I have thought about becoming vegetarian before and I think I am going to get some cook books and maybe if we cut it out slowly I can convert the rest of the house too!

Blech! That is so disgusting. I'm not a veghead but I don't eat pig. That is so gross...it probably would make me puke and turn vegetarian, too!
