Processed food anyone?

Here are a few photos taken of the inside workings of a processed food plant. Maybe you have seen them before. The first one is hot dog meat, if that is what you can call it, and the second is going to be chicken nuggets. Do these make you hungry? Hmmmmm?

I prefer the hot dogs.

None of us needs to see the process by which any of our meats is prepared. It's not pretty even if it's free range, organic and had a personal massage therapist.

I'm trying to pretend those are large batches of soft-serve ice cream...

But it's reality, rock. So it was appropriate to post
it and a wake up call for those who didn't know.
We do have some young'uns here who should be made aware.
Being informed is not a bad thing even though you ruined my day
