People Reveal Which Animals Would Be Most Pissed At Humanity For What We've Done

We do a lot of weird stuff to animals that they probably wouldn't enjoy very much if they could understand. We don't just mean using them for food or food products, either. We really want to know who the first person was to see silk worms shoot fibers from their butts and think to themselves:

"I could wear that."

One Reddit user asked:

If any animal were to find out what humans use it for, which organism would be the most distraught/horrified?

and we picked a few that really made us think. If you're a sensitive soul, brace yourself before clicking next. We're about to talk about beaver butt juice, lambskin condoms and legs growing out of eyeballs.

Fruit Flies

Fruit flies. I used to work in a genetics lab and regularly made their limbs grow out of their eyes. Our work was on developmental patterning genes [called homeobox genes]. They're genes that are expressed in a specific spatial-temporal pattern so your body knows where to begin growing limbs vs eyes, for example. Controlling those genes means you can grow body parts anywhere. It was incredibly easy to do too.

Cows

Cows. We eat their meat and drink the milk that is for their young, who we also eat and consider a delicacy. We wear their skin, and use their body parts for just about everything. Never forget the first condoms were intestines! Natural sausage casings too:

"You chopped me up with plants then stuffed my muscles into my intestines?!"

Silk Worms

Silk Worm would be saying WTF why are you using my thread to make everything?

"That came from my a**, bro! What are you doing?"

Rhinos

Rhinos.

"You killed off my entire species because some of you think the powder created by our horn can get you an erection?!?!?!!?!"

Hoseshoe Crabs

Horseshoe crabs.

Their blood has a chemical in it that is used to test pharmaceuticals for bacterial contamination. The crabs are harvested, fed just enough to survive, bled out a certain amount, and put back. Some of them die.

Their blood is blue and they are such weird-looking things that pictures of the harvesting labs look like something from a sci-fi movie.

Sheep

Sheep.

"You eat my young, you wear my fur, you use my young's skin for clothing and accessories, eat my intestines and you boil my head and place it on a platter?!"

Cats

Cats would be horrified to find out that we lowly humans think of THEM as OUR pets.

Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs, I mean come on. All the petroleum products? Lube? Condoms? Good lord, they would be horrified if they weren't extinct.

Beavers

Beavers, we kill them not only for their fur but for their raspberry flavored anal secretions. Beaver butt juice farms are a real thing.

Pigs

Pigs. We use their skin to make things for Tom Brady to throw.

Toads

Pretty sure that if toads knew we licked them to trip balls they would not be to keen on the idea.

Snails

Snails. back when ppl used their mucous secretions to color their clothes in tyrian purple. same with insects who had to give their lives for the color carmin red.. dont know how i would feel if someone would crush, boil and dry my body parts only in order to have the fanciest looking toga at the colosseum

Chickens

Chickens

**You stuff us full of hormones so we age at a faster rate, then you eat us **

Starfish

Starfish.

"You know, I've come to accept my fate. I'm gonna be the best goddamn starfish I can! Whoever eats me is gonna have a great meal!"

"Uh, actually, we're just gonna dry you out and sell you as a decoration."

Kopi Luwaks

Kopi Luwak, the cat that sh*ts out coffee beans. We dig through their turds to find the beans and then turn the booty-beans into a drink.

Worms

Worms: we dig them up from their homes, impale them on giant hooks and throw them underwater as bait for massive predators.

Bulldogs

I think bulldogs would be ticked off.

"What? You bred me on purpose to have a flat face so I have breathing problems and get hyperthermia easily? And gibbled legs prone to hip dysplasia? And such big heads and screwy hips that most females have to give birth via C-sections? What the Christ?!"

Mice

Mice. We have done countless experiments on them. We've even altered their genes to make them more susceptible to cancer. There's even a statue in Russia to honor how important lab mice have been to humans.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
