Not To Be Trusted With Knives

The Internet’s leading authority on radicalized geese

Foie Gras

As a vegetarian, I’m not going to be eating foie gras. Foie gras, in case you don’t know, is the liver of a goose that has been force fed to the point that it has developed fatty liver. Sounds rather disgusting to me (both the idea of eating a fatty liver and the force feeding of the poor geese), but people who eat it swear it’s delicious. Anyway, I watched this TED video of a story of foie gras being made a different way:

I especially like how he takes what he learns about this “natural” foie gras and extends it to industrial agriculture as a whole.
