Waste Of Meat


There is a disgusting show on the food network called Ginormous Foods. Some clown goes to restaurants where they serve 10 pound BBQ sandwiches or hamburgers with 8 patties of beef. Dumb people think it's really cool so they order it to take selfies. Then they take a few bites and throw the rest away. Each year, meat thrown in the garbage equates to 12 billion animals slaughtered for no reason. An extraordinary amount of living creatures born to be wasted. We don't hear much about the land, water and energy being used to produce, process and transport them all because it doesn't appear on food labels. But each burger is a result of a major use of natural resources. Producing, processing and transporting food means using a huge amount of land, water, and energy – largely fossil fuels, that contribute to climate change. Thankfully we have a new president who was able to solve climate change by waving a magic wand. So I guess everyone can just go back to destroying the earth, Donald and the food network say it's not really a problem.

I felt like crying at the end of reading this, to actually draw all those heads would have defeated me.

Talk about a picture saying a thousand words! I have been slowly going towards eating more Vegan meals and your sketch has just reinforced my motivation! As for our new President, I have no words to say ..........

Oh piss off ,another vegan warrior pontificating about the virtues of not doing what we have been biologically designed to do over the last 2 million years. Stick to your shitty art and eating hummus and leave the rest of the human race to eating delicious beef.

Only in America. Creators of such foolish shows give no thought to all the hungry people in this country who could feed a family on the waste alone. Over-consumption and waste are clear signs of wealth and ignorance.

Hi, Tommy.

I am someone who: 1) loves your drawings; 2) once worked for Food Network's parent company. In no small part, it was shows like 'Ginormous' on FN (and similar ones on sister network Travel Channel) that left me revolted by the entire operation. Your comments are spot-on, and I sleep much, much better at night now that I have moved on! Thanks.
