"Wilhelm had a queer feeling about the chicken industry, that it was sinister. On the road, he frequently passed chicken farms. Those big, rambling, wooden buildings out in the neglected fields; they were like prisons. The lights burned all night in them to cheat the poor hens into laying. Then the slaughter. Pile all the coops of the slaughtered on end, and in one week they'd got higher than Mount Everest or Mount Serenity."

p.85 Seize the Day, Saul Bellow

This quote made me feel so sad, like it doesn't even matter that I don't eat chicken, there are still going to be all these birds killed for all the other people who do *sigh

Okay, so I don't do it myself, but why am I still amused by 'if god didn't want us to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat?'
