I remember seeing this when I wasn't vegetarian and even then it disturbed me. I'm talking about a parody of Sesame Street. At one point they show pigs being loaded into a factory and then various clips of meat being sliced and diced. In the background there are several small children making stupid comments. I have no idea what the message they were trying to put across was. I know at one point regarding one of the slaughterhouse workers, a kid says: 'He's a bad man. That's capitalism for ya!' but then there's plenty of flippant comments along with it.<br><br><br><br>
Just wondering if anyone has ever seen it?<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ9SBsMurDk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ9SBsMurDk</a><br><br><br><br>
(Nasty imagery half-way through)

I thought these shows were hilarious. I don't know, it's not for kids of course. I think it's just for kicks. Not really supposed to be very serious.

I only saw this show once, it was about a year ago and I was pretty well tanked. I remember there was a puppet "news show" featuring an anchorman with about 1,000 eyes. This I liked.<br><br><br><br>
Then, unexpectedly, there was a short segment...a graphic and very real video of a live turkey having its head chopped off. This I did not like! I changed channels.<br><br><br><br>
I've also seen commercials for this show featuring a kid in a butchershop, interviewing a decapitated pig's head and sipping animal blood from a meat tray.<br><br><br><br>
I believe this show's twisted imagery in part pokes fun of the cutesy stories we tell children about "farm animals" and animal food products. However, it also promotes these iamges of animal abuse as a form of entertainment.

Yeah, I've seen that too. Afterwards the decapitator's child kicks the headless body.<br><br><br><br>
How can some of you enjoy this when it's clearly being flippant towards the slaughtering of animals?
