Mad Cow Eater Disease

You folks can eat all the veggie-based faux burger patties you want. You can even pretend you’re chomping on meat if that makes you happy, but once you cross over into Mississippi you had better not call it that. As the Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports, in a rare show of bipartisanship the Magnolia State House and Senate endorsed legislation that would bar the labeling of animal cultures, plants and insects as meat. That’s right – it might look like meat, smell like meat, and maybe even taste like it, but calling it that ain’t gonna git ‘er done. It’s off to the gov, who is expected to sign it into law. Perhaps while munching a tasty cheeseburger. And be warned: over a dozen other states are pondering the same legislation.
