Moment of Silence
    #3999318 - 04/01/05 11:02 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Frank Purdue, Of Purdue Chicken, had died at age 84. 


It's times like this that the dire need for a chicken smiley becomes readily apparent.  :mad: 


Let's all bow our heads for the man who brought us tender breats and thighs for many many years. 

Chicken Man.

No I'm serious, he's dead.


I wasn't serious about caring, but he is, however, dead.

Why celebrate someone getting filthy rich from the Chicken-Auschwitz industry? Sounds like an asshole to me.

Chicken, although very dirty, is a healthy and delicious flesh.

He really is dead, I just read his obituary on NYTimes.com.  Obituaries are great reading. :thumbup:

Young_but_cool: I don't think we're celebrating him getting rich, he was just a familiar face on the ol' boob tube.

Today, while I'm listening to the sweet sizzle of chicken flesh hissing and popping over a charchoal grill, a single tear may roll down my cheek.

Godspeed, Frank Purdue, godspeed

Back in the day, when I was a creative youngster, I had plans with my buddy at the time to create a spinoff of Mortal Combat called Mortal Omelett.  It involved chickens fighting to the death, and the final stage was supposed to involve fighting Frank Perdue to the death.

I'm dead serious.  Good thing I didn't put money into that project :lol:

That sounds much like my ideo of "Schmuck Hunt" involving finding, and proceeding to shoot all lame people, instead of flying ducks.


I was a disturbed youngster.


Edit: I am still disturbed.

Frank Perdue was a Chicken Hitler.

"Very few animals go through the stresses of turkey poults in their first three hours of life. They are squeezed, thrown down a slide onto a treadmill, someone picks them up and pulls the snood off their heads, clips three toes off each foot, debeaks them, puts them on another conveyer belt that delivers them to another carousel where they get a power injection, usually of an antibiotic, that whacks them in the back of their necks. Essentially they have been through major surgery [without anesthetic-UPC Ed. Note] They have been traumatized. They don't look very good" (Donaldson, et al., 27).


Modern poultry-chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, pheasants, quails, and pigeons -are confined by the hundreds and thousands in densely packed houses permeated with accumulated droppings, feed ingredients, and excretory ammonia fumes which damage the birds' immune systems and respiratory tracts and can cause them to go painfully blind as a result of ammonia burn. Ducks are denied the water they need to rinse their eyes in. Stress and disease are inevitable under these conditions. In 1991, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution noted that every week, "millions of chickens leaking yellow pus, stained by green feces, contaminated by harmful bacteria, or marred by lung and heart infections, cancerous tumors or skin conditions are shipped for sale to consumers."


In the United States, chickens, turkeys, ducks and other "meat-type" birds are intentionally kept alive through the slaughter process in order to keep their hearts beating. The birds are manually pulled from the crates on the flatbed trucks and hung upside down in the live-hang area of the slaughterhouse. Their heads are dragged through an electrified water bath trough that is designed not to stun them but to keep them from violently flapping while hanging from the conveyer belts and to paralyze the muscles of their feather follicles in order to facilitate feather release. (see Karen Davis, Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry, 1996, for a detailed discussion of poultry slaughter in chapter 5, "The Death").

After being dragged through the electrified water bath, the birds have their necks partially cut by a machine blade and/or a manual neck cutter. They then hang upside down for 90- seconds in a bleedout tunnel while still alive, with an unspecified number of birds reportedly asphyxiating in pools of floor blood if the conveyer belt dips too close to the bleedout floor. They are then dropped into tanks of scalding water. In Fiscal Year 1993, of 7,085,491,852 total poultry slaughtered in USDA facilities, 3,121,617 birds officially entered the scald tank alive (Freedom of Information Act #94-363, Poultry Slaughtered, Condemned, and Cadavers, 30 June 1994).
