Artist Illustrates the Unappetizing Truths Behind Processed Foods


Everyone knows by now that most processed meats are made from animal unmentionables. It’s nothing shocking, especially since people continue to do so regardless of that knowledge. The shameful deliciousness of convenience store hot dogs are further proof of this.

A professional photographer from the Master Kong Society wanted to capture the gritty reality behind some of the processed foods we stuff in our mouths every day. Among these items are what appears to be baloney meat, hot dog meat, chicken nuggets and processed hamburger meat. Yum.

Is it terrible I wouldn’t mind having those chicken feet to get to the nuggets, though? Mmmm processed chicken feet…

The funny thing is, all of this, without fail, is just normal food somewhere in the world. I would bet that even in America there are plenty of people who will eat all of those things.

There is nothing wrong eating snouts, skin, feet and intestines. What, should we throw them away or fed them to dogs? As long as this lower meat is hygienic, e.g. not containing any poop bacteria more common in this kind of meat, it’s okay.

This isn’t art, it’s some pretentious, pseudo-intellectual sort thinking he’s being deep by telling people what they already know. Literally all of the things pictured here are eaten on their own in some parts of the world, some even being considered a delicacy, so I’m not really sure what their inclusion in processed food is supposed to be saying here. It’s not a secret and there’s nothing wrong with it.
