Show mercy on turkeys -- eat tofu! ;-)
For those who think it's cruel to eat animals. You must realize that
vast majority of cows/turkeys, etc. would never have existed at all had
they not been raised for human consumption. Would it better never to
have lived at all than to have lived a short life and then been
slaughtered for my enjoyment? Who are you to say?
Since animals have no consciousness in the human sense, it doesn't
really matter. They were put here for us; we have an obligation--to
ourselves and out consciences--to treat them humanely, but the notion
that they have 'rights' is nonsensical.
FWIW, our turkey, having been brined for 12 hours, is now on the kitchen
counter drying in preparation for icing the breast, seasoning, and going
on the spit to be roasted.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
