Every now and then while at work, I have to hop onto the internet to “look something up”.
Seriously, I’m not making this stuff up. It really is part of my job.
So, today, I happened across a website — the one I was looking for, actually — and was horrified by what I saw.
Here’s the link.
Check out their “featured” products at the bottom.
Don’t be fooled by the little link to the shoe-shining machine… (Besides, do people even have their shoes shined anymore? Seriously…)
Plain and simple, and I don’t care how they sugarcoat it, they manufacture torture equipment.
They even have video?!
More frightening, the company isn’t that far from my house…
Yeah, that’s right… There’s actually company not far from my house that boasts a product line with items with names like “Spinal Cord Remover” and “Kill Floor Robot”.
Now before anyone goes all anti-PETA on me, I think there’s something that I should clear up.
I’m a meatatarian.
No doubt about it, cows are delicious.
See, I’m fully aware that all of my favorite foods come from animals with cute furry faces.
I know that.
But after watching a couple of the videos, well, honestly, it made me feel sick to my stomach.
There… I’ve given you fair warning.
Don’t watch the product videos.
For the record, I’m still having a 100% beef hot dog for dinner tonight. Maybe I’ll even eat two.

Pants in a Can Bovine Factoid:
The eighth annual Strolling of the Heifers parade in Brattleboro, Vermont is fast approaching! This year it will be held on Saturday, June 6. That’s barely more than a month away!!!
My complete recap of last year’s, ahem, “Cow Parade” can be re-read (assuming that you read it the first time) here.
