food that requires a factory = MMM MMMMM GOOOOD!

oh and Ed Sanchez, you would be a dead ringer for a Joe Biden radio address

In general, perishable things like food (and food-flavoured meat product) are produced at the same rate they are consumed.

Watch that conveyor belt of animal tissue. That is how fast the meat from this plant alone is being used on a daily basis by America. There are probably many plants like this one supplying for McDonald's.

Hundreds of conveyor belts of quivering red animal flesh, pouring into the mouths of America.

Imagine it.

This whole sequence looks just like the glossy tour that Greg Kinear's character in Fast Food Nation is given. Not that the film is great, or even good.

Growing up on a farm, I've seen my share of animals go the way of the sandwich, but nothing in this world can compare to the terrible sadness and disbelief that overwhelms one when they visit a mass meat production plant. The mechanical precision of the whole operation is really mind-blowing, and like you stated above, each little cut of meat will be processed, "flavoured", and delivered to a restaurant full of people ready to eat burgers that are better-traveled than they are. Very strange.

Also, it's totally smoke unless you see the killing floor. It gets real very quickly.

As someone who used to work in a locker plant, I'd like to point out that this is totally correct.

Imigrant labor sadness in every bite.

helping to destroy gringo livers beats farming dirt I guess

Animal flesh = "material"


Rabid Vegan - 2009-05-05

Well, LOOK AT IT. This is a processing plant, not a gourmet kitchen. Calling the meat "material" helps the workers eat at night.

Menudo con queso - 2009-05-06

Or "product." Everything's "product" now. The hairstylist asks me, "Do you use product in your hair?" The meat plant manager calls the meat "product."

Is it just me, or does that seem like an abuse of the English language?

The patties then pass through a metal detector. *awkward pause*

mouser - 2009-05-05

Takes only one lawsuit to make the afternoon's production not bring any profit.

Notice they didn't say rat detector.

VoilaIntruder - 2009-05-05

Metal rats?

Dinkin Flicka - 2009-05-06

Transmetal Rat Trap.

Pre-rehearsed soulless corporate speak from the mouths of dead-eyed executives; all the while in the background there are sterilized stainless-steel conveyors moving infinite tons of frozen meat into churning grinders forever.

Remember to pick up some Pabst Blue Ribbon on the way home.

Stare at the scare.

Feel nothing.

Cube - 2009-05-05

It still made me hungry for a Big Mac.

margoth - 2009-05-05

Its all just lips and assholes to me.

augias - 2009-05-06

actually ate an asshole sandwich last week. typical in soccer matches and flea markets here in chile. the smell was repulsive but it tasted like regular pork actually. they serve it on a big ol bun with a chorizo for extra meaty lasciviousness. yeah im not doing that again.
