    • Penn: Teller and I wanted to see if we could kill, clean, cook, and eat our own chicken. We wanted to tape it to show you all the clucking, suffering, feathers, and blood that go into a chicken dinner. Turns out The Humane Association doesn't want anyone killing a chicken for entertainment. Why would the chicken care if it died in our bullsh** show or in some processing plant? There stance is good news for us, because I'm pretty sure we couldn't even catch a chicken. [stands next to a screen showing workers doing it at a processing plant] But we CAN show someone else doing it. We can only be cruel by proxy...that seems really bullsh**ty. Processing animals for food is not a pretty sight. But, isn't that an aesthetic point and not a moral one? If you're eating meat, you're part of this. WE'RE part of this! If you can't stand the meat, get out of the kitchen. Just...don't blow the kitchen up because you don't like my lunch.
