Iran is attempting to becoming a much, much crueler place. From BBC News:
Cooks in Iran have tried to assemble the world’s largest ostrich sandwich at a food festival in Tehran, as part of a bid to promote healthy eating. …
About 1,500 cooks used 1,000kg (2,200lbs) of ostrich meat to make the 1,500m (4,920ft) long sandwich.
I guess they don’t know how much healthier a vegan diet than than ostrich.
This is so depression. Who knows how many ostriches were killed to pull of this ridiculous stunt. Not only is it cruel and unnecessary, it’s wasteful. The other non-meat ingredients could’ve been used to actually, you know, feed people. I cringe every time I see a story like this on the news. Biggest cookie, muffin, whatever. We need to stop wasting food and focus on healthier, vegan eating and feeding starving people.
