Bobbie Rogers arrived home from second grade looking very serious. His mother noticed, but was busy making dinner, so waited to ask.
As they started eating, Bobbie announced, “I’m not going to eat meat any more.”
“Why is that?” his mother asked.
“We learned in school that meat comes from cows and sheep and cute little calves and lambs that are killed, then chopped up so we can eat them. I don’t like that, so I won’t eat any more meat!”
“But Bobbie, you’re eating ham right now and that comes from pigs.”
“Oh, that’s OK,” Bobbie replied, “pigs are ugly.”
