Episode 258 of 489 episodes

Not everyone who likes to eat meat wants to know where the meat came from. Learn the facts about food production in this episode. Slow dialog: 2:24 Explanations: 3:27 Fast dialog: 15:51 Butcher: Good morning. What can I get for you? Samantha: I’d like some lamb chops, pork chops, and some beef, but I’m not sure which cuts I want yet. Butcher: You’ve come to the right butcher shop. Everything here is fresh. Everything comes straight from the slaughterhouse. Samantha: Um, I’m glad to hear that. Butcher: In fact, we got in a shipment of game and poultry just this morning. You can buy them bone-in, boneless, or whole. They’re as fresh as if you got them from your own farm or brought them down with your own shotgun. Samantha: Uh, that’s great. I see that you sell marinated and stuffed meats, too. Butcher: Yes, we do. We even make our own sausages. We use only the freshest ingredients. They’re so fresh I wouldn’t be surprised if they got up and walked across the floor. Samantha: Right. I think I’ll just take the chops for now. Butcher: Are you sure? I can show you some of the best prime cuts of beef you’ll ever see. They’re so fresh you could... Samantha: No, no, that’s all for now. I suddenly feel like a salad for dinner instead.
