    Anyway, if we weren’t supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?

      One of my favorite quotes. Its also turns into something of a Zen koan if you think about it long enough.

    2. Robert Schwartz Says:

      People eat tasty animals = PETA.

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      Shannon – I will have to consult Mr. Safranski on that as he is about the closest thing I get to Zen.

    4. Jonathan Says:

      It is a good joke but a poor argument. People are made of meat too.

      I originally heard it as a Jack Handeyism and it was more religious:

      “If God didn’t want us to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat?”

      It adds a nice dimension I think.
