Omnivores, if you don’t know, are animals that can eat both grass and meat.
I’ll start by asking some questions:
Humans don’t eat each other… most don’t anyway, so no questions need to be asked there.
We do eat plants and animals though. So let’s ask an animal how it feels about us eating it. While we’re at it let’s ask plants and grains how they feel about us eating them. Also, may as well go the extra mile and ask plants how they feel about animals eating them.
I suppose we could ask water how it feels about us drinking it… and then peeing it out into it… Could also ask water how it feels that plants drink it too. Maybe ask a plant what it thinks water tastes like, or any of the other animals that drink it for that matter. No need to ask ourselves how water tastes…
It’s only fair to ask other animals how they taste to each other and what they think about each other eating each other. That’s fair, right?
Oh yeah, I forgot another player. We should probably ask the sun how it feels about all life on earth feeding off its energy and nutrients. Yeah, that sounds reasonable. I guess we could also ask the sun of its opinions on solar panels. Would it prefer us to use oil as our primary means of energy production? Does oil mind that we use it?!
Yeah, this is so circular and there’s too much permission needed from non-sentient organisms…
I’m an Omnivore because meat tastes fucking good!

So a vegetable is pretty much anything which grows in the ground and is eaten during the course of a meal. You could eat pot brownies during a meal. Thus they are a vegetable. So the next time your mom says “eat your vegetables!” You can respond with “Gladly, pass a brownie. I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to do my homework though.”
So it’s considered a sin in some religions to the eat meat of an animal which does not chew its own cud. I never really thought about this until recently… I also did not know what “cud” meant. I thought it was like a “biblical” way of pronouncing the word “cub.” That didn’t make any sense either but I didn’t really care enough. Now that I have a blog though, OHHHHH it’s on now :).
Okay, so a cow chews its own cud. They eat grass, or whatever their eventual butchers give them to eat, swallow the grass, then it digests, then they puke up what they just digested, and then they chew that which they just puked up some more before swallowing it to their second stomach. Cows have two stomachs if you didn’t know.
This means that a cow chews its own vomit, literally. To each their own and I’m glad I don’t deal with cows but can you imagine how much their breath must stink? Not only that but can you imagine how a cow feels when it eats. I can just imagine with every chewing motion the cow keeps thinking the same exact thing “::crunch:: yuck ::crunch:: yuck ::crunch:: yuck ::crunch:: yuck.” Then it has to swallow it.
Granted this does kill any bacteria that’s in the grass already twice as hard and I’m sure it means that the cow does in fact have a fairly healthy body but still, if you thought grass tasted bad in the first place, be glad you’re not a cow!!
