Yummmm meat. Smoked, cured, dried, aged, and fresh. You didn't come here for the animal activism, you came here for steak, burgers, ribs, and everything in between. Not stopping here would be a terrible missed steak.
Here goes Japan again, being weird and stuff.
A new butcher shop in Tokyo translated to "Macho Meat Shop" is serving up slices of flesh from some serious meatheads.
The entire staff are meaty, muscular dudes. And they serve meat. Get it?
The restaurant serves raw egg drinks, steaks and customers can feed the buff eye candy.
But you better hurry if you want to visit this meaty wonderland.
The shop is only open for a limited time until November 9.
Early Thanksgiving, anyone? No turkey on the menu. Just beef.
Cigarettes, asbestos, bacon—what do these three things all have in common?
The World Health Organization announced today
that bacon, sausage and other processed meats are ranked alongside deadly known carcinogens.
The investigation involved 22 scientists invited by the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer to look at links between 16 cancers and processed meats.
Processed meat now falls into "group 1," putting it alongside tobacco smoking.
The Internet didn't take the news very well.
Of course there's a study claiming bacon causes cancer. It's something that brings people joy.— rstevens ☕️ (@rstevens) October 26, 2015

It's ok, veggies. If you're drunk, it doesn't count.
A new study by money-saving website Voucher Code Pro found that a full third of self-described vegetarians cheat after they've been drinking.
According to The Telegraph:
One in three have also said they eat meat every time they were drunk on a night out with kebab meat and beef burgers being the most common.
Around 39 per cent said they ate kebab meat when they were under the influence, while 34 per cent said they opted for beef burgers.
Twenty-seven per cent of 'vegetarians' said they ate bacon, with 19 per cent devouring fried chicken and 14 per cent eating pork sausages.
But 69 per cent of vegetarians said they did not tell anyone after they had eaten meat.
The study questioned 1,789 people in the United Kingdom who considered themselves vegetarian.
What no one seems to be asking is why a coupon website decided to branch out into conducting diet research. Did they have a secret vendetta to uncover their suspicions about them cheating vegetarians?
Regardless, now you have some semi-scientific ammo if the vegetarians in your life get preachy.
Ok, here's one for you.
Police and residents in Bessemer City, North Carolina are trying to find more information about a cloaked, pale figure dropping raw meat around an apartment building.
This could very well be the result of some social media prank or over-hyped paranoia, but we just had to tell you about it.
The mystery at least as police on alert according to the Gaston Gazette:
Two pictures popped up on the Facebook group One Man's Junk Sunday night and Monday morning.
The photos are taken through a window with blinds in the foreground and a cloaked, pale person outside near some woods.
The social media chatter says the man or woman is in the Hudson Woods apartment complex off of Hudson Boulevard, but police say it hasn't been confirmed.
"There's no validation that it was Hudson Woods. It could have come from anywhere. We don't know if this is some bogus prank somebody is playing," said Donna Lahser, spokeswoman with the Gastonia PoliceDepartment.
...Many people accused the cloaked person of dropping raw meat near a playground in the apartment complex. One resident said her husband found a bag of raw meat near their apartment about two weeks ago. They called maintenance to have it removed.

Its unclear whether it's a man or a woman. It's unclear why someone would do something like this. And it's also unknown who took the original picture.
The reactions to this most-probably a hoax are almost as fun as the mystery itself.
We're calling it, Pale Cloaked Meat-Dropper for President!
In a story that would please Morrissey to no end, controversy surrounding a children's book, Vegan is Love, espouses the moral that "hamburgers are violent and sad," a point further driven by images of dead animals. Now meat-eaters are mad and vegans are feeling marginalized and stereotyped, so America remains unhappy. At least Man vs. Food is still on.
