Did anyone see this on TV last night? I know it's, well, cultural etc but I found it all rather disgusting (speaks the soman who is the least fussy eater I know). Forgive me but it did make my stomach churn to watch him eat a hard boiled duckling, from the egg where it was still developing until being plunged into boiling water. Nor do I want to see frogs speared alive and stuffed, or tarantulas poked from their nests before being deep fried and Gordon noshing on thier legs and abdomen, described as looking full of pus Then, just before going to bed, viewers were treated to a somewhat barbaric pole-axing of an ox. I really am not sure of the need for this sort of viewing. Yes, I eat meat but I only ever buy wild game or responsibly reared high quality meat, where the animal has had as natural a life and stressfree death as possible. You can argue so did the frog and the tarantula (well, life yes but death I'm not so sure) but I'm pretty sure the duckling or the ox met a very unpleasant end.
