    My gf told me she had goose liver today. She said it is a very refined meal.

    All I could think about was how gross it sounds. Granted I am a vegetarian, but still, it sounds nasty.

    So she got kinda annoyed with me making fun of it because it is indeed verrrry refined.

    yah...right [​IMG]. Its gross no other way around it. the liver of a goose? Even if it was a year ago when I was eating meat I would refuse.

    Never had it.

    I could not for my life figure out how the fuck my parents could eat liver. Many nights I had to sit at the table until midnight because I flat out refused to eat that shit.

    In modern foie gras production, force feeding takes place from 12−18 days before slaughter. The duck or goose is typically fed a controlled amount of corn mash through a tube placed in the animal's esophagus. Due to this force feeding procedure, and the possible health consequences of an enlarged liver, animal rights and welfare organizations and activists regard foie gras production methods as cruel to animals. Foie gras producers maintain that force feeding ducks and geese is not uncomfortable for the animals nor is it hazardous to their health. Scientific evidence regarding the animal welfare aspects of foie gras production is limited and inconclusive. A number of countries and other jurisdictions have laws against force feeding or the sale of foie gras due to how it is produced.

    a la Wikipedia
