animal souls

So there's this thing I've been contemplating. It mostly applies to you if you are not a vegetarian or are a vegetarian, once removed. It involves the concept of animal souls. The basic ideais as follows:

Let's say you go to a restaurant and order the steak. That cow probably weighed about 1,200 lbs and 500 lbs or so is meat that people can eat. If each person got a half pound of meat, that would be 1,000 8 oz servings. Even if you get super conservative it's still fair to say that the single cow feeds literally hundreds of people. For the sake of this exercise, we'll be super-super-conservative and say it only feeds 100 people. That's one animal soul per 100 people. On the other hand, lets say you order the quail. That's one animal soul per person. Then WAAAAY on the other end of the spectrum is the sadistic Endless Shrimp at Red Lobster, where there could be dozens and dozens of animal souls per single person.

My point is this. Some towns require you to put calories on the menu. I'm saying that we should also start putting animal souls and the menu as well. Here's what the menu would look like:

Steak: 1:100
Quail: 1:1
Shrimp: Fuck you, animals.

Everyone else: you're welcome.
