Activity Books!

So cute, I could just eat 'em right up! (pdf) Nothing's better for teaching your kids than a good activity book. Perhaps you prefer turkey or fish to veal. Before your delicious meal, practice food safety. And after, remember the importance of dental hygiene.

Of course, if Mrs. Beaver isn't your type, perhaps you'd like to meet Pennsylvania's somewhat flamboyant McGruff. If you get bored, you could always vandalize in protest of... something. Or, uh, learn about a fascinating satellite. Or the Old Testament. Whatever floats your boat, or, Ark.

Wow, I just completed the veal workbook, I can't wait to move on to turkey and fish. EDUCATION ROCKS!

Wow. Unless I missed a section or something, that's an entire "educational" "book" on veal that gives you absolutely no idea how it's made. Except that it's vaguely farm-related and there's a maze involved.

Oh, yeah, this is being given to people that they want to eat veal.

I want more information on sheep dildos please.

Disappointed that they didn't give an answer for the 'colour the farmer talking to the vet' page.

Also, why is the farmer consulting the vet about a bucket?

The world of veal is indeed mysterious.

Q: What sort of torture do you inflict on a veal calf?

A: Cruel and un-moo-sual punishment!

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week. You're a lovely audience, be sure to try the, uh...um...

This, right here, is why I always read the comments before clicking the link. Prevents a lot of ARGH! and window closing.

Zinger, I assure you that it's all quite worksafe.

With the possible exception of "Mrs. Beaver hopes you are up to her challenge." Yes, I am in third grade.

When not printing happy-go-unlucky little baby veal pictures for you to color bloody bloody red, the veal industry gurus pursue legal action against people who market "free-range" veal... on the grounds that it doesn't count as veal.

Grotesque. As soon as I saw the extremely plump-faced calf I was sure it was PETA propaganda. Then as I scrolled down I realized that I had been out-ironied right out the door.

Q. WHAT DO YOU CALL A COW THAT'S JUST GIVEN BIRTH?

A. OPEN FOR BUSINESS!


Q. WHERE DO YOU TAKE A YOUNG COW TO EAT?

A. ANYWHERE WITH A FRONT DOOR WIDE ENOUGH FOR THE CRATE SHE'S CHAINED IN!

Seriously, though. Veal is just delicious. I had this ossobuco the other week... amazing.

This veal coloring book is kind of short on the veal.

Nothing except seeing the veal crates in action.

Am I expected to push a crate full of tasty young moo-cow through that long twisty maze? It's bound to get stuck in a corner.

If they're serious about education, The Veal Committee should make an online game called "Veal Sokoban," where you have to push all the crates full of moo-cows onto the killing floor. That would rock.

Also, I am totally eating some veal parmesan this weekend.

That veal coloring book is absolutely delightful. Education has improved by leaps and bounds, I tell you, leaps and bounds.

Why was the calf so snobby?
He thought he was a cutlet above the rest!


Oh! Indeed!
