All right, it’s just a cartoon. No pig was actually butchered and ground up into sausage.
This reminded me of a story though. One day I was reading a history book about the early collages in America. I read where the tuition to early day Harvard was often payed with a cow or other livestock. Now with two kids in collage I started thinking… Was this a good deal or not? How much does a cow sell for? I googled this question and found an interesting website of a rancher. He said that some show cattle are worth up to $30,000.00 (this would be the Ivy League cows). Feeder calves may cost $800-$900 (a great deal if this covered tuition for a semester). But then he went on to tell of the time he sold a sick cow (hopefully not mad cow disease) to a taco meat factory for twelve dollars… Yes, $12.00! So then every time I suggested going to a fast food Mexican restaurant, I asked my kids if they wanted some of those twelve dollar cow tacos. It makes you kind of wonder how much a chicken destined to someday be a bunch of nuggets sells for… Maybe being a vegetarian isn’t such a bad idea!
