Thinking of a different flavour for this year's treats? Why not throw a thick-cut reindeer steak on the grill? Recently featured at Lidl's, a discount grocery store, these reindeer steaks have been the center of some controversy. The frozen steaks were sold at $10 for a 350g pack, and were selling fast!
A spokes-person for PETA (that well-balanced and sane group of cheerful chaps) condemned the sale of the steaks, when interviewed by Sky News UK, saying:
"Christmas is supposed to remind us of peace and goodwill - and the rest of the animal kingdom could do with a taste of it, rather than being tasted."
So if you'd like to prove you're caring of animals, kindly step off your high-horse and whine elsewhere. To everyone else, Merry-Saturnalia, and if you don't mind I'm off to the butcher to see if they've got any Prancer... (I never trusted that one!)
Cheers to recycling old traditions and confusing the righteous few who pretend to know what they are really celebrating!
