Mangia! Mangia!

I have friends who are omnivores and I also have friends who restrict their diets for various ethical, health, and socio-cultural reasons--everything from vegans to vegetarians to shades of vegetarianism ("I'll eat beef, but not fish or chicken" for example).

Sometimes people get into some really fun discussions of the ins and outs of what they will or won't eat. Meat eaters always like to play ethical gotcha with non meat eaters. And it can be pretty torturous for some to come up with consistent reasons for their eating mores.

That's why I stick to one simple rule about what I will and will not eat: I don't eat anything that has a face. Fortunately bacon does not have a face.
