COINCIDENCE OR CHIPSTER CONSPIRACY?
Yesterday we published this shocking photo:
You won’t believe your eyes as quinoa, the miracle food of the Inca, ends up as mispronounced veggie burgers at Mickey D’s in Germany. Incas not included. No kale was exploited in the making of this video.
Or, as they say in Deutschland:
Some crazy kids from CalArts 2014 created a stop-motion animated video starring food that talks about food and their teachers and parents and friends helped them. (Extra credit for eggplant love scene.)
From Brazil: Young Luiz Antonio asks Mom about the octopus (polvo) they’re having for lunch:
Is an octopus an animal? Where is his head? Why did he have to die? Is a chicken an animal? A cow? I don’t want them to die. Why are you crying, Mommy?

(PNS reporting from MISSOURI) Busloads of pro-pig activists from Texas converged on Monsanto’s St. Louis headquarters here today to protest the chemical/agricultural mega-corporation’s plans to produce extruded soy flaps meant to replace natural chicharrones.
Bearing signs that read “NO PORK NO PEACE,” “WE WANT LARD FOR OUR MONEY” and “SAY NO TO SOY CHICHARRONES,” the so-called Occupy Monsanto movement plans to shut down traffic around the corporate campus until they get a response from Monsanto. [UPDATE: MONSANTO STATEMENT BELOW.]
The group was confronted by counter demonstrators from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who carried signs proclaiming “PIGS ARE PEOPLE TOO.” Some scantily-clad female PETA protestors threatened a sex strike to protest actual pig parts consumption. “WANT BOINK? NO OINK!” read one sign.
