A lack of species sensitivity when serving pizza to guests


In the wildlife documentary A Day at the Fire Station, Mr. Vesuvio the fox thanks the pig fire fighters for saving his pizzeria by serving them lunch. Lunch consists of a pizza with various toppings: Tomato, anchovies, basil, and bacon.

Mr. Vesuvio may want to leave off the bacon next time.

    And don’t replace it with pepperoni.

    Makes sense to me. In stressful situations pigs will commonly eat their own offspring or the carcasses of other animals- including pigs.

    I’d say a fire station would count as a stressful environment.

    Two words: Turkey bacon.

    PIG, n. An animal (Porcus omnivorus) closely allied to the human race by the splendor and vivacity of its appetite, which, however, is inferior in scope, for it sticks at pig.

    (Bierce underestimates the pig.)

    No. Hell no.

    Reminds me of the breakfast chain restaurant commercial with Kermit and Miss Piggy enjoying plates with bacon and sausages…

    I remember a cartoon — a chicken is laying in a hospital bed. Another chicken is giving him a bowl of soup and says “Eat it, it’s good for you . . . .and it’s nobody you know.”

    Next time give them seafood pizza. (Vegetarians don’t eat dairy products – cheese, so you can’t help them)

      @Cheong: I think you mean vegans. My sister-in-law is a vegetarian (ie: doesn’t eat meat), but will happily eat cheese.

    Life imitating art… something very similar happened last year. Firefighters saved a piglets from fire and got sausages as a reward.
