Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! BBC 2 now….
Always reminds me of a nasty greek island holiday i went on. We all got bussed to a remote beach for a BBQ, you know, one of those expensive rep. excursions.
There was a hut on the beach where they did all the cooking and there was a cute little lamb tethered outside. We all sat around drinking and watching the sun set, but feeling slight concern for the animal’s fate.
Then one of the chefs came with a cleaver in hand and took this creature inside. This raised a few eyebrows and one or two said they no longer felt hungry.
He emerged a few minutes later with blood on his hands and no “lamby”!!. This shocked everyone and a lot of the women were in tears.
Then a few minutes later, the joker brought lamby back out again, much to the relief of the punters.
Well I guess they had to entertain themselves some how.
I did wonder how long it would be until lamby bought it though!Posted 6 years agoPJayMember
I do tend to think (perhaps from my veggi point of view) that it gives a rather rosy view of farming, sort of propaganda for the farming industry. Things would come across a rather differently if they followed the lambs through the slaughterhouse. Just because it’s out of sight doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Depends on your point of view I suppose but it feels rather disconnected.Posted 6 years agoPJayMember
PJay they did the slaughter house thing last year, I suspect they will do the same again this year.
Well, well done to them if they did, I didn’t realise that. I think that it’s good to give the whole picture, it’s more balanced that way and I do think that the little baa lambs gamboling in the field view is rather different to the mechanised slaughter house reality. ‘Tis just a point of view though.
I do like lambs but I have to say, young calves are pretty sweet too. Locally there’s a field with a number of Scottish hairy coos in (a bit out of place for Somerset) and we’ve seen a couple of new borns there – amazingly cute.Posted 6 years ago
