Okay, this has got to be one of the funniest sites I've ever been to becuase believe it or not, in't not a parody. See if you can figure out what the hidden agenda of this website is:

Ewww.

Someone at America's Beef Producers (tm) or the Cattlemen's Beef Board, National Cattlemen's Beef Association or Circle 1 Network (©2003) is trying waaay too hard. A real-life girl would never call herself a "real girl" or a "real" girl! Quotes are a classic sign of a too-old marketing person trying to be hip and grammatically correct at the same time—an effort doomed from the start.

Keepin' fit with "real friends" and generous helpings of hormone laden beef and dairy?! Please! Then, when these kids are 300 lbs. and sue McDonalds, what do we do?

Y'know, it's funny. I've looked through the Delia's Catalog and I never seem to see bouncy young teenage girls gnawin' on a steak at the mall.

Oh, and according to their graphic, fun and chat apparently must include tacos.

Oh, and a contest.... what makes you a real girl.... MEAT! And yes, remember lil' darlin's. Was down that steak with a nice serving of cow's blood, fortified with Vitamin F, for fun!

that's funny stuff, especially:

"What type of beef do you most like to eat with your friends?"

Gosh! With so many great types of beef to choose, how could anyone limit their choices to just Steak, Tacos, Burgers, and Subs?

What about other smart snackin' faves like beef wraps, beef on bamboo, beef taco and cheese pockets, and the delicious easy beef chili!?!

And well, if you got friends like mine, there's no end to the types of beef we enjoy eating together! Why, more than just burger buddies, my closest friends & I have a beef bond that transends the normal bounds of friendship!

from the land of Mad Cows & Beefeaters,
Tiki Chris

Is this turning into the Meat Is Murder thread? I've eaten meat all my life and weigh 155 at 5'10" BTW...

I leave you with Joseph Campbell: "...the most hideous act, which is the act of life - namely, killing and eating another living thing...the hero is the one who comes to participate in life courageously and decently, in the way of nature, not in the way of personal rancor, disappointment, or revenge." Anyone who thinks they're smarter or more spiritually together than Campbell, jump right in.

As for the Amazon: do you really think it's being "destroyed"? Do you really think the world is meant to last forever, just as it is within your infinitesimally small lifespan, like a little Kodak snapshot? Are you aware that Alaska was once a tropical landscape? The wheel will turn and everything you know about the world will pass away, never to return.

For God's sake, try to rejoice! We are all participating in a mystery beyond our comprehension, with our little roles to play. But those roles can become bigger, more interesting, and less about personal rancor, disappointment, or revenge - if we let them.

aloha,
em.

"So, like, at, like, the slumber party the other night at my mom and dod's, we were all, like having such a good time talking about how much we like our beef treats, that, like, we fergot all about N'Sync, Britney, shopping and, like, boys! It was like, kewl." I'm a veggie, too, but by no means a militant one. That pre-pubescent giggle-girl demographic is definitely what you're after if you're trying to sell lots and lots of meat. Or cigarettes. Or bad beer.
