Comment of the Week

“I had lion meat once at a fancy wild game dinner event. It is… not good…. It had the texture and color of a pork chop, but the flavor was just… weird. I can’t imagine anyone buying lab grown lion more than once, and if it’s the first lab grown meat they ever try, they might blame the process and not the “animal,” and never buy lab grown meat again. You decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.”

-Lion meat sounds terrible.
