Heavy on the gristle, I’d imagine. Need a long marinade & slow cooking. David Gillies August 6, 2012 at 11:02 pm You’d need a big freezer for Susannah. No way you’re eating that much before it goes off otherwise. Frances Coppola August 7, 2012 at 9:07 am Gordon Ramsey, who has a smallholding, nurtured two piglets from infancy. When the time came for them to become pieces of meat, he personally escorted them to the slaughterhouse and supervised their despatch. All of this was recorded for a TV documentary.

Churm Rincewind August 7, 2012 at 7:53 pm I can’t quite work out whether this post is supposed to be a joke or not, but I for one would be rather saddened by the idea that men typically see women as predominantly “pieces of meat”. It’s a thought that cheapens all of us. If women can appropriately be described as “pieces of meat”, why not apply the same approach to others? Jews, perhaps? Gypsies? Blacks? This is the kind of thinking that gets neoliberals a bad name. Tim adds: Yes, a joke. But like all such, with a grain of truth. “Predominantly” would be too strong. But there is a general underestimation by women about quite how visually sexual men are. The “I wonder what she’s really like under those clothes” is always there. No more reprehensible than a baboon checking for red bums. It just is.

Shocking behaviour, I know, but there you go. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
