Suicide Food

Quote:
I love Suicide Food. The blog, that is, not the “food” itself.

The incredibly clever [Footface] has focused, with admirable single-mindedness, on one common ploy of meat-eaters and those who cater to them. We’ve all seen it, and I am sure, like me, you’ve been incredibly annoyed by it. It’s the carnivorous enthusiasm for portraying animals as eagerly and amusingly seeking their own deaths so that they can be turned into food.

The thing that’s so great about this blog is that, while such portrayals are annoying, or even infuriating, on their own, [Footface's] decision to collect these odd, gruesome pictures in one place, demonstrating how pervasive this imagery is, has somehow revealed a glimpse into the uncomfortable and warped psyche of the meat-eaters who view these images and, for some inexplicable reason, feel comforted, or amused, or absolved, or whatever it is they feel.

Although [Footface] declares, with utter accuracy, that this material is “not funny,” the fact is is that [Footface] himself is frequently funny, not to mention dark, and oh so bitter. But unlike the images he uncovers, the butt of his humor is not the innocents at the sharp end of the knife. He’s skewering those who are wielding the knife, or the fork — those who are so uncomfortable with what they are doing that they have to humiliate and misrepresent their victims.


There is more in the article, but the gist is Footface has a blog and its funny and terrific.

Congratulations FF!

I thought Vegans on the Move were positive people doing constructive things.

That blog is pretty dang awesome. I think the article failed to fully grasp the depth of despair that our society has reached when we trivialize taking life with cartoons that seem solely designed to attract small children to the fold but even that bit of news was certainly better than no coverage at all.

Congrats on the fame and fortune that will surely come! That is why we do the vegan thing right?

Yay! Congrats, FF!

(Now only if they could see your series on "making you finally understand religion," "picture for making you say...," "picture for freaking you out," etc.)
