Go crazy. Being veg shouldn't keep you away from one of our finest foodstuffs. At least not when you're in control of the kitchen!

I highly recommend mushroom-based gravies, by the way. They're super satisfying.

Y'know, uh. Steak. The Long Winters.
They're like peanut butter and jelly.

On an aside, I enjoy the fact that a thread this early into the existence of the board has already devolved into utter nonsense. And by nonsense, I mean pictures of steak.

Jesus, I'm going to bed.

I believe, madam, that what you have on your hands there is a "Ruth's Chris Steak House" filet mignon, or what I like to call a "steak cake."

This photo rides happily atop many a cab in San Francisco, and even as much as I love the steak family of foods, it completely freaks me out.

So there's that.

No shit. That's entirely wrong.

Man, I wish chickens counted as vegetables.

PROCESS OF SLAUGHTER IN KFC. (from goveg.com)
-Chickens are probably the most abused animals on the face of the planet.
They suffer all number of cruelties, including being left by the hundreds of
thousands to starve to death, having their sensitive beaks seared off with
hot blades, being crammed eleven birds to a tiny cage along with the
decomposing corpses of other chickens, and arriving dead in huge numbers
from long journeys in extreme weather conditions. Basically, any and all
abuse is allowable when it comes to chickens, who are, in fact, remarkable
animals with distinct personalities and an intelligence, if allowed to
develop, as advanced as that of cats and dogs. Most importantly, they feel
pain, just like we do.

The following is a basic outline of PETA's recommended animal welfare
program, followed by to a basic review of the most egregious abuses
inflicted on chickens who are raised for food. Animals Routinely Sliced Open
and Scalded While Still Conscious
At slaughter, chickens are dumped from cages like so many rubber balls and
then SNAPPED by their weakened and sometimes broken legs into metal shackles
before their heads are passed through an electrically charged water bath
that immobilizes them but often does not render them unconscious. The
workers who hang the animals must work so quickly (assembly-line style) that
animals are frequently injured. When the water “baths” are set below the
level required to kill them, as they often are, the animals (unless they
have died from stress and abuse before they’re even shackled) are alive,
conscious, and bleeding to death after their throats are slit, and they
enter the scalding tank ( scalding hot water for feather removal) still
conscious. Many of them flap about and thus miss both the immobilization
bath and the automated and manual (human) neck-slicers and are still
completely conscious when they are scalded to death.

okay well maybe some places are like that, but not all, i have personally expiernce seeing this, and were treated and fed well, until of course it came time to go, which in one part is unfortunate, but in another a fact of life.
