For some reason, I seem to be obsessed with food lately – see my earlier, rather sarcastic post about rating law schools based on their cuisine.
So, I was at a dinner (thrown by my colleague Ann Marie Marciarille in honor of visiting speaker, Elizabeth Weeks Leonard), when the conversation turned from the normal well-traveled road of health care to criticizing a zoo for throwing a BBQ. That seemed bizarre to me - to go watch animals only then to go cook them - and I even thought at the time that it must be "made up." But after a little online search I discovered that apparently this is a fairly common event at lots of different zoos. At that point I remembered that I’ve also been to two aquariums that serve fish in their restaurants (disturbing).
Then I found this blog, which specializes in showing bizarre pictures of animals advertising themselves to be eaten. It’s unsettling, but also hysterically funny, in a strange Regina v. Dudley kind of way.
Bottom Line: I'm snacking vegetarian while I finish up this article.
