There are platonic burgers made of beef instead of cow lips and hooves.
There are fish 'n' chips where the fish is more than just a white goo
lurking at the bottom of a batter casing and you can't use the chips to
shave with. There are hot dog fillings which have more in common with meat
than mere pinkness, whose lucky customers don't apply mustard /because that
