It’s the cows I feel sorry for.

Do we want to go there?   And is this the thread for it?   

I am probably more familiar with beef cattle husbandry than many here as we pass miles and miles of pastured angus and herefords en route to the country several times a month.    They are free to roam, graze on green grass and really have only one bad day in their lives. 

AS OPPOSED TO dairy cattle who are the whores of the animal kingdom, spending their lives pregnant or lactating year round, up to their knees and udders in mud and feces in their cramped corrals.   Unless they happen to be some of the elite 1% grazing on verdant hillsides in Sonoma.   

Sorry for the rant.

Because he was implying that was something that people were actually doing.  It was NOT a way for rich people to avoid the EMP vegan menu.  It was inaccurate to suggest it was. 

It was something that people were actually doing. Iirc he knew about it by seeing insta posts of tenderloin from an event that seemed like some guys getting together. As recently as December you can find this (note American Psycho reference in comments)

I’m not sure that there are many people, however rich, who would think it’s a good idea to pay tens of thousands of dollars so that they and a date could eat beef from EMP’s catering menu. 

Every Martin Shkreli wannabe would totally do that.
