Because all crime has been eradicated, streets are clean and well-maintained, schools are top-notch, and politics are honorable and above-board, the Chicago City Council has banned the sale of foie gras by restaurants and retailers.

Foie gras is being banned because to make it, geese are cruelly force-fed until their livers swell up to 10 times their normal size. This is so much worse than penning baby cows up so that they can't move and making them anemic so they'll make the tenderest, most delicious veal, or cutting off chickens' beaks so they won't peck each other to death in their overcrowded conditions. Yep, the other factory farming processes (probably invented in Chicago, the meat-packing capitol of the country) are so kind and humane, we don't have to worry at all about eating what they produce.

Violators selling the fatty goose-liver delicacy will be fined $500. At last, a way to make sure that only the REAL rich people will be able to get this stuff! The ban will be enforced by citizen complaints, which should be pretty effective--after all, look at how every restaurant diner makes it their personal mission to police the drinking habits of visibly pregnant and unfortunately pot-belled female diners.

Check out the lip-smacking details.


Actualy gooses like it

nobody believes it but gooses enjoy this way to be fed. Even more than tv addicts like to be fed to death watching commercials of what's in their mouth.
My family lives in french Gers, where most of goose-liver comes from. It seems they (the gooses not my parents) all live in the open air, quite free most of the time. I don't know what's a nice life for a bird intended to be eaten but I think I'd prefere to be such goose that to be a chicken in a dark factory where it is not even possible to moove.
