...roasting a live puppy on a BBQ and steaming a live lobster?

One is cute and can vocalize pain. Lobsters have a pretty sophisticated nervous system apparently.

I think the meat is tougher when cooked from a live state... it's more tender after slaughter because it starts breaking down.

I saw a documentary once on my ancestors, who were/are cannibals... and they actually scientifically documented that human meat is more tender that way. My grandfather actually had a fork from the natives which was designed for human flesh.

I'm suprised it's not a delicacy yet... people seem to eat anything under the sun nowadays...especially in Asian countries. Don't they cook rats from a live state out in China now??

This is messed up...you're talking about roasting puppies....messed...

EDIT: Wait a minute: is this some sort of vegan propaganda? Respect to those who can survive only eating vegetables, but seriously, accept that eating meat is part of nature for humans, and that its not WRONG to do so.

That's his point. He's trying to make you think that roasting puppies is just as wrong as steaming lobsters... He's prolly right but I'm anti-vegetarianism... so I disregard these comments.

I believe that plants and fruit also has a life and deserves its chance to live. Therefore I refuse to eat any veggies or fruits unless I absolutely have to for my own survival. If I had the choice between destroying plants for food and having compassion for all living things, I would choose compassion and not kill the plant.

roasting a puppy = burning fur and flesh

steaming a lobster = kitchen smells like ocean

Puppies have big beautiful eyes and can at least be visualised playing with children. Lobsters aren't cute, so therefore we've decided that we can destroy them at will.

I imagine the fur on the puppy would complicate matters if you threw one on the grill. Can scientists really know if lobsters feel pain? I'm sure they do.

Besides the point, but boiling lobsters is such a boring way to cook 'em. They'd taste a lot better sauteed, grilled, or baked.

I haven't found a place I can go to that will let me pick out a puppy and BBQ it live for me. Lobster you can done all over.

Not really much difference. Same kind of thing that some people think eating dog is somehow bad, or "worse" than eating cow.

I have found that the puppy is much more difficult to keep on the cooking surface... they tend to try to run off. I guess if you closed the lid that would work alot better, but then it is hard to see if it is burning or not. Plus, cooking live puppies often means that the fur gets all burnt and it leaves a bad taste in the meat. So moral of the story is that lobster is much more tasty and much easier to plunk them into boiling water! :lol:

The burning fur is a big rookie mistake. Amateur!
