Meet Testify. He enjoys long walks,

belly scratches,

and grazing in the yard with friends.

He’s a friendly fellow.

He got his name because he only has one testicle.

You didn’t see that coming did you? No one ever does.

Testify is living a good life but soon he will be meat. Ham hock, pork chops, bacon.

My point? Of course there’s a point. Most meat animals never experience any of the pleasures above. They live in squalor, like Honduran children (and didn’t Sally Struthers convince you to send just pennies a day to little Jovita, in Honduras, so she may have shoes and gruel?)

I encourage you to get to know your dinner before it’s on the plate. Maybe you would prefer to know that chicken frolicked in a field instead of laying listlessly in a dimly lit shed.
