...than eat faux foie gras.

i remember a few years ago when those peta assholes started trying to make foie gras illegal. i love animals, i do, but shut the fuck up you peta asswipes. eat a slab of pan seared foie gras at les halles in manhattan, and then tell me that it should be illegal.

now, the inquiring minds at peta want to know if there’s a culinary wizard out there who can cook up a suitable, all-vegetarian substitute for foie gras. vegetarian foie gras? that's like vegan bacon. the hipster toolbox that wins the "fine faux gras challenge" will go home with $10,000, and a healthy dose of self satisfaction.

the tradition of jamming bucket-loads of corn into the belly of a duck or goose via a large funnel—for the purposes of fattening up their delicious livers—is one that dates back hundreds of years. the tradition of hating on this practice is newer, but gaining traction. there’s a general feeling that it’s inhumane, and this totally disturbing video certainly supports that claim. but is this hamburger topped with the fatty offal no less compelling? what about this well-trafficked flickr group?

several states have banned the sale of foie gras, and some farms are starting to offer more humane alternatives (which was discussed here). regardless of your position, it’s hard to argue that this is not a better use of peta’s seeminly vast resources than this sea kittens business.

can we shove lots of corn down into a PETA members belly and then may them into something good to eat?
