I want one now.

  • Observer

    It’s a politically correct pig, otherwise it would be smoking.

  • Dana Garcia

    Achmed is a vegan??

    Or is he just outraged at seeing a pig image in public?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Does anybody really care?

      • Editor

        If you look in the dictionary under “First World Problem”, you find this story.

      • Jav

        Yes people do care

        Knives over forks: The primary defense of carnism is denial; if we deny there’s a problem in the first place, then we don’t have to do anything about it. Denial is expressed through invisibility, and the primary way carnism remains invisible is by remaining unnamed: if we don’t name it we can’t even think about it or question it. And carnism keeps its victims out of sight and therefore conveniently out of public consciousness. The most obvious and direct victims are the nearly 200 billion who’s live and die in abject misery every year and count sea life 1.5 trillion.

        • I like Pork chops.

          • UCSPanther

            I really love pulled pork as well.

          • It is good, and nothin like a good Pork roast for dinner

      And you are racist? It shows just how clever you are The problem is that humans have victimized animals to such a degree that they are not even considered victims. They are not even considered at all. They are nothing; they don’t count; they don’t matter. They are commodities like TV sets and cell phones. We have actually turned animals into inanimate objects – sandwiches and shoes.

    Funny. I hear vegans have a lot of gastrointestinal issues related to their diets…

        Save your propaganda for someone who cares, freak.


        • Jav

          You see you have a little brain your guilt hurts

          • Humans are naturally carnivores.

          • Exile1981

            Vegans are b12 deficient as it only comes from meat.

            The side effect of b12 deficiency is insanity, reduced mental faucalties…

          You are the freak look n the mirror

      PHILLIP WOLLEN 1950- Australian philanthropist and Former VP Citi Group

      King Lear, late at night on the cliffs asks the blind Earl of Gloucester “How do you see the world?” And the blind man Gloucester replies “I see it feelingly”. Shouldn’t we all?

      Animals must be off the menu because tonight they are screaming in terror in the slaughterhouse, in crates, and cages. Vile ignoble gulags of despair.

      You see, I heard the screams of my dying father as his body was ravaged by the cancer that killed him. And I realised I had heard these screams before. In the slaughterhouse, their eyes stabbed out and tendons slashed, on the cattle ships to the Middle East and the dying mother whale as a harpoon explodes in her brain as she calls out to her calf. Their cries were the cries of my father.

      And I discovered when we suffer, we suffer as equals. And in their capacity to suffer, a dog is a pig is a bear is a boy.Meat is the new asbestos – more murderous than tobacco.

      CO2, Methane, and Nitrous Oxide from the livestock industry are killing our oceans with acidic, hypoxic Dead Zones. 90% of small fish are ground into pellets to feed livestock. Vegetarian cows today are now the world’s largest ocean predator.

      The oceans are dying in our time. By 2048 all our fisheries will be dead. The lungs and the arteries of the earth.

      Billions of bouncy little chicks are ground up alive simply because they are male.

      Only 100 billion people have ever lived. 7 billion people live today. And yet we torture and kill 2 billion sentient living beings every week. 10,000 entire species are wiped out every year because of the actions of one. And we are now facing the 6th mass extinction in cosmological history.

      If any other organism did this a biologist would call them a virus. It is a crime against humanity of unimaginable proportions.

      But happily the world is changing. 10 years ago Twitter was a bird sound, www was a stuck keyboard, Cloud was in the sky, 4G was a parking place, Google was a baby burp, Skype was a typo and Al-Qaeda was my plumber.

      Victor Hugo said “there is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come”.

      Well, animal rights is now the greatest Social Justice issue since the abolition of slavery.

      Did you know there are over 600 million vegetarians in the world. That is bigger than the US, England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, Australia all put together! If we were one nation we would be bigger than the 27 countries in the European Union!! Can you believe that?

      And despite this massive footprint, we are still drowned out by the raucous huntin’, shootin’, killin’ cartels who believe that violence is the answer – when it should not even be a question.

      Meat kills – animals kills us and is killing our economies.

      Medicare has already bankrupted the United States. They will need $8 trillion dollars invested in Treasury bills just to pay the interest. And they have precisely zero!

      They could shut every school, army, navy, air force, homeland security, marines, CIA and FBI – and they still will not have the money to pay their doctor bills.

      And our Cornell and Harvard [say’s] that the optimum amount of meat in a healthy human diet is precisely ZERO.

      Water is the new oil. Nations will soon be going to war for it.

      Underground aquifers that took millions of years to fill are now running dry.

      It takes 50,000 litres of water to make one kilo of beef.

      Today, 1 billion people today are hungry. 20 million people will die from malnutrition. Cutting meat by only 10% will feed 100 million people. And eliminating meat will end starvation forever.

      If everyone ate a Western diet, we would need 2 Planet Earths to feed us. We only got one. And she is dying.

      Greenhouse gas emissions from livestock is 50% greater than transport [speeders said] cars, trains, buses, ships, lorries, the whole lot.

      And as I travel around the world I see poor countries who sell their grain to the West while their own children starve in their arms. And the West feeds it to livestock. So we can eat a steak? Am I the only one who sees this as a crime? Believe me – every morsel of meat we eat is slapping the tear-stained face of a hungry child. When I look into her eyes, should I be silent?

      The earth can produce enough for everyone’s need. But not enough for everyone’s greed.

      We are facing the perfect storm.

      If any nation had developed weapons that could wreak such havoc on the planet, we would launch a pre-emptive military strike and bomb it back into the Bronze Age.

      But it is not a rogue state. It is an industry.

      The good news is we don’t have to bomb it. We can just stop buying it.

      George Bush was wrong. The Axis of Evil doesn’t run through Iraq, Iran or North Korea. It runs through our dining tables. Weapons of Mass Destruction are our knives and forks.

      Our proposition is the Swiss Army Knife of the future – it solves our environmental, water, human health problems and ends cruelty forever.

      The Stone Age didn’t end because we ran out of stones. This cruel disgusting industry will end because we run out of excuses.

      Meat is like the 1 and 2 cent coins. It costs more to make than it’s worth.

      And I come from the bush – farmers are the ones with the most to gain. Farming won’t end. It would boom. Only the product line would change. Farmers would make so much money they wouldn’t even bother counting it. And I’d be the first to applaud them.

      Governments will love us. New industries would emerge and flourish. Health insurance premiums would plummet. Hospital waiting lists would disappear. Hell “We’d be so healthy; we’d have to shoot someone just to start a cemetery!”

      So tonight I have 2 Challenges for the opposition: Two Challenges:

      Meat causes a wide range of cancers and heart disease. Would they name one disease caused by a vegetarian diet?

      And Two. I am funding the Earthlings trilogy. If the opposition is so sure of their ground, I challenge them to send copy of the the Earthlings DVD to all their colleagues and customers. Go on I DARE YOU.

      Animals are not just other species. They are other nations. And we murder them at our peril.

      The peace map is drawn on a menu. Peace is not just the absence of war. It is the presence of Justice.

      Justice must be blind to race, color, religion or species. If she is not blind, she will be a weapon of terror. And tonight – there is unimaginable terror in those ghastly Guantanamos we call factory farms or slaughter houses.

      Believe me, if slaughterhouses had glass walls, we wouldn’t be having this debate.

      I believe another world is possible.

      On a quiet night, I can hear her breathing.

      Let’s get the animals off the menu and out of these torture chambers.

    So ONE person finds it offensive and CALLS on Amazon to pull it?
    Who the eff does he think he is to dictate his opinion?
    If it was a sizable percentage of the population, then fine. But ONE?
    On the same basis, can I ban anybody from anything because I find him/her offensive?

    • Alain

      Enough of people demanding that a product be pulled because they find it offensive. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it, end of story. I also find it cowardly that stores and companies fold to this crap.

  • UCSPanther

    Hey! We have a vegan who really salty here! Clean up on aisle 4!

  • UCSPanther

    I think the vegan troll, Jav is having a tantrum here.

    • Yea let him run with it.

      • UCSPanther

        Vegans are LOLcows. They think they have to force their insanity on others and come across in the same manner as insane vagrants who scream at passerbys.
