    I've been invited this weekend to see an old high school mate who is having a pig roast. I had to decline because, although I am a meat eater, I couldn't bear to watch it being cooked. Not the kind of dilemma I've ever been faced with. I asked if we could get together another time and explained.

    Could you do it?

    No. I was invited to a Cochon de Lait last year and even though I wanted to go to see some people I hadn't seen in a while, I declined because that's not something I want to see.

    I know, I like my meat already cut into cubes and patties and strips. I don't want to look at its head. Glad I'm not alone. I'm sure he'll understand.

    I had already switched to turkey bacon, and this reaffirms that decision...

    Pigs are actually very intelligent and social creatures. I've always wanted one as a pet.

    And they are cleaner and less sex obsessed than homo sapiens.

    I'm Puertorican, and roasted pig is a delicacy there. It doesn't disturb onsite bit to see a pig on a stick.

    I actually prefer this over regular sausage. It doesn't have that greasy stuff like regular sausage.

    I won't eat anything if I know what it looked like when it was alive.
    This whole "animals eating other animals" thing was a bad idea.

    Growing up, I went to innumerable Filipino family gatherings where a party wasn't a party unless they were serving up Lechon. So seeing a pig roasting doesn't faze me one bit. NOM NOM NOM

    I don't think I could do it, it's a little too... intimate. Seeing eyes and a mouth is a massive appetite destroyer, regardless of the animal.

    I prefer the "ignorance is bliss" approach. I go to the store, buy the little pink slabs of pork neatly wrapped in cellophane and pretend that they were magically created as a gift unto mankind by the pork fairy. icon_biggrin.gif

    I refuse to eat lamb regardless of if I see the body intact or not. If you've ever bottle fed a lamb you know they are not much different from a puppy. I have a mental block on certain animals that probably wouldn't make much sense to anyone else. I also can't eat a bunny. icon_neutral.gif

    My husband's cardiologist told him to change to a healthier diet, basically wanting him to become a vegetarian. I was sitting there in the exam room listening to this.

    "A simple rule to follow," said the doctor to my husband, "is to eat nothing that has a face."

    "What if I put a paper bag over my head?" I asked.

    I got into a lot of trouble over that one. icon_redface.gif

    I get a free pass on this one. I keep kosher, (almost) always have.
