> How Gordon Ramsay’s lamb slaughter joke explains our confusing relationship with meat. Why we love to eat animals but hate to think about what it means.

I grew up on a farm so I know EXACTLY where meat comes from – and it ain't the meat aisle at Safeway.

I was raised to see farm animals, and some wild animals, as . Even to the point we gave them food-related names. For example, we had two pigs named 'Bacon' and 'Pork Chop'.

I still eat meat, but less every year.
