Beeg Chicken

Spotted earlier on a satirical page on the Facebook. They were taking the mickey out of the Telegraph for – and here I quote – “having another normal one”.

But given that the actual story is about concerns over the maltreatment of the birds – 20 million of which are eaten each week in the UK – the horrific environmental impact their farming has on local rivers, and the worry that “mega farms” are fuelling the incidence and spread of bird flu, I think I’m quite happy to take the amusing cartoon as the illustration, thank you very much.

The more realistic alternatives would surely be less fun.
