Capitalism for Vegans

freedom tastes like chickenHow can PETA get people to stop eating delicious meat?  By throwing money at them!  In a move surprising for its creativity but standard in its capacity for extreme publicity, the animal liberation group is sponsoring a contest to develop commercially viable in vitro meat.  I discussed this lab-grown tastiness in a previous post.

The rules of the contest are simple: make the meat, make it taste like chicken (shouldn’t be hard, so many things do), then sell it to people.  If you do so before anyone else, you get a cool million.  Not a bad deal.  And you have four years to do it.

Of course, some people at PETA actually objected, according to this NYTimes article.  I blame them for the fact that my Tofu Pups seem to taste less and less like real hotdogs as time goes by.

  1. In vitro meat promises to be the greatest advancement in agriculture since the domestication of animals and is a vital solution for our small planet. Unfortunately, there are no active funded in vitro meat research programs in the United States. To address this issue, I have submitted a project titled “Hydroponic Meat for a Sustainable Planet Earth” to the American express members project contest. See link-
