Food Origins

Beef, Pork, Etc.

Sarah Kay was studying the origins of foods in kindergarten. One day, she and her mother were walking through the grocery store discussing what ingredients went into various products. Sarah Kay said, “Pork comes from pigs and beef comes from cows.”

Then she asked, “How DO they get the pork from the pig, Mommy?”

Her mother felt that the truth was the only way to go, so she explained that they kill the animal to eat its meat.

Horrified, Sarah Kay went past shelves staring at the meat and saying, “They KILLED a cow to get THIS?” She could not believe it, and her little heart was broken. To get her mind on something else, they went to the bakery where Sarah Kay began to check out the various donuts and goodies. She noticed a beautiful white cake and asked, “Mommy, what is this cake called?”

Her mother replied, “It’s an angel food cake, honey.”

Immediately Sarah Kay’s eyes filled with big tears and she wailed, “You mean they KILLED an ANGEL to make this?”

I’m sad for the angel and the little girl but on the side of misunderstanding it’s slightly funny.

A bad angel. They killed a bad angel. That makes it okay. But “bad angel food cake” doesn’t have the same ring to it.
