Cute = Tasty

A blown-up, above-the-fold picture of this goat was featured on the front page of the NYT Dining section on Wednesday as part of an article titled "How I learned to Love Goat"

Perched ears and eyes personally engaged with the camera, this goat is a more fitting subject for the front page of a Farm Sanctuary brochure, rather than as the complement to an article about the succulence of dead goat flesh. It seems it isn't actually necessary for people to create distance between cute animal images and the meat they eat.

  1. The ideas of the avarage person on meat/animals is very strange and to say the least inconsistent.

  2. Reminds me a little bit of "suicide food" + "honest meat."
