When the robot holocaust comes, these are the tools they'll be wielding.

Carcass Cutting Tools: three words you've been waiting to read. Here's three more: Pneumatic Bung Dropper (with action shot!) Still not satisfied? Try Automatic Carcass Splitter. Terrifying, and yet strangely arousing.

I'd meant to post this a while ago, but then I forgot all about the subject, until the recent posts on swine penis and tree shredders jogged my memory.

At first I thought it was a human corpse in the action shot linked above. That was very disturbing. (I don't know if it's because I'm color blind.)

Amazingly (or maybe not-so-amazingly), we've seen at least one of these before.

Just think, htere are people who's title is "Lung Gunner" or "Bung Dropper" or "Chicken Debeaker"... I just can't imagine doing that eight hours a day. I know there are worse jobs, but that's gotta be near the bottom.

Get out of town. I actually did a search before posting, but I used "sow bung" instead of "hog bung". Consider me schooled.

Well, it was before your time, Gamblor. The only reason I remembered it is, well, how could I forget?

That must be from back in that Golden Age of MetaFilter I keep reading about in MeTa.

And they're fast! "A single operator can bung up to 1200 hogs/hour". That's 3 seconds per bung, people!

Just imagine it:

Randy: Hey, Pete!
<BUNG!>
Pete: Yeah, Randy?
<BUNG!>
Randy: Ya'll wanna get some <BUNG!> beers and watch the <BUNG!> game after this shift? <BUNG!>
Pete: You betcha! I'm <BUNG!> rootin' for <BUNG!> the <BUNG!> ... <BUNG!> ... <BUNG!> ... dammit, this one's stuck!

Dangit...I missed that you'd linked to that pic already.

Mea culpa!

This reminds me of a weekend I spent working on a friend's emu ranch outside of Dallas about eight years ago.

When we were finished butchering the emus, there were a half-dozen of these "donuts" lying around. It's odd how some things strike you as both hilarious and horrifying at the same time, you know?

That's ok, darkstar. Here, have a bung plug.

Pneumatic Bung Dropper == best heavy-metal band name in a while.

And sadly, I didn't need to click the link to figure out what it does, and how it does it.

This post may have single-handedly been the catharsis for me to return to full time vegetarianism. Seriously.

Yeah, I hear you, Glenwood. Makes me glad I eat only bung-less foods ...

"Bung-Less Foods" -- where you always get bungs...for less!

I get a nice catharsis after I bung a hog myself.

OH, Pollomacho. You haven't lived until you've drug a freshly decapitated, bled, and scalded chicken carcass across one of those puppies.

Ditto Glenwood: I'm a happy meat eater but something about that post gave me a deeply bad feeling. Possibly enough to make me pass the bacon permanently.

Reminds me of a neighbor who works for GE on their huge 737 jet-engine size carcass de-boner whatevers. Its huge, its loud, and its measured in CPH (Cows Per Hour)

After 3 years of checking out the MetaFilter, I'm both sorry and perverely proud that THIS is the link and thread that finally got me to pony up and register (lazy bastard that I am). Thank you Gamblor, in all your neon clawed glory.

I think this might be a doublepost. Much of the finer points of the Jarvis catalog was making the rounds a few years ago.

But I'm not complaining, no sir! One can never have enough bung or lung guns around the house. Why, just last week a whole herd of pre-stunned cattle just fell right from the sky into our yard. Thank goodness I had enough bung guns to go around, or we'd still be drowning chin-deep in assholes.

A "third legger" I read recently reported that often the cows he was cutting the third leg off of were still alive.
