Ewww....

 


Meat free chicken? Well, if you're the kind of person who's strict about definitions and says "chicken is poultry" then why feel the need to tell me it's meat free? All poultry should be meat free, right? I mean, you're not slipping porkchops in with my poultry, are you?

And if you are the kind of person that says anything with eyes is "meat", then what exactly is "meat free" chicken made of? Bananas?

This is very troubling...

Meat free chicken?

I just threw up in my mouth.

I'm more trouble by the word "Quorn"

Gino: Well, Gino, I'm sure you were shooting in self defense. Them deer are vicious. Specially the little, succulent, tender ones...

Greg: I myself prefer chicken-free meat. Real men don't eat chicken.

HM: sounds like a food company on Chronos, the Klingon Homeworld.

it's worse -- Quorn is a fungus grown in vats.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorn

Quorn is the leading brand of mycoprotein food product in the UK[1] and a leading brand elsewhere. Mycoprotein is the generic term for protein-rich foodstuffs made from processed edible fungus.

Anon: Holy smokes! But that actually makes me feel better about the whole thing. We're just two steps removed from Soylent Green, you know.

(Actually, seriously: If you remember the movie, "Soylent Yellow" was a "high energy vegetable concentrate" and Soylent Green" was made of "high energy plankton gathered from the oceans of the world"...

Has anybody actually been in the Quorn factory? Fungus? Bah!)
