Thanks to ‘guilt-free’ ghosht even veggie people are becoming non-veggies
Under a large sign saying ANIMAL FARM, a goat and a chicken are discussing their future, which doesn’t seem too bright.
Chicken: There’s good news and bad news. Which do you want to hear first?
Goat: Let’s hear the good news.
Chicken: OK, the good news is that humans are developing laboratory-made meat – which can be called cheat meat, or guilt-free meat, which in taste and texture is exactly like the real thing – which means that we won’t have to be killed for humans to eat.
Goat: Wow! That is good news. I’ve never been able to figure why humans have to go around killing us for food. I mean we, you and I, don’t go around killing humans so we can eat, do we? Anyway, if thanks to guilt-free cheat meat humans stop killing us they can get on with their main preoccupation, which seems to be killing each other, in wars, and riots, and terrorist attacks. So what’s the bad news?
Chicken: The bad news is that because of guilt-free cheat meat a lot of veggie humans could well become non-veggies without feeling bad about our being killed.
Goat: I don’t get it. Why is it bad news if veggie humans become non-veggies and start eating guilt-free cheat meat?
Chicken: Figure it out. Look at what has happened to our fellow inmates in Animal Farm, the poor cows. Ever since these gau rakshaks stopped humans from eating them or turning them into leather, once a cow stops giving milk it’s human owners leave it to live on a diet of plastic bags or starve to death.
Goat: Uh, oh. I think I can see where this is going, and it isn’t anyplace good. Chicken: It isn’t. If humans don’t need to eat us because they can eat cheat meat instead, they’ll have no further use for us and leave us to our fate, which in my case means I won’t even get the chickenfeed which is all I get to eat right now. And the ghas-phoosyou’regiven to eat might become more phoos than ghas. Goat: So whether or not we meat our end, we’ll meet our end anyway….
