‘Breakfast’ and ‘Lunch’


During a conversation with an old friend of mine today, he explained how his family has started raising chickens and pigs. He’s a long-time high-tech exec – not a farmer, so this was amusing news. A back-to-the-earth type of exercise. Very cool, IMO.

They raise the animals throughout the year and then slaughter them as the fall winds down. I asked what his children thought of the whole idea of eating these animals that they help raise. His answer was that when they got the pair of piglets in the spring, they named them ‘Breakfast’ and ‘Lunch’ to immediately instill the end-game scenario in the kids.

Damn funny.
