Dad (spooning mushroom salad onto his plate): Some good protein here.
Me (enthusiastically): Yep, and vitamin B12 and iron!
Dad: Yeah but gimme a steak any day, so much better.
Me: Not so sure the cow would agree with that.
Mum: Well, cows have a pretty boring existence, just standing around all day. You may as well eat them.
Me (eyes literally popping out of my head): They only have that ‘boring existence’ because we breed them into it so you can eat them!!!
Mum (more shocked at my outburst than the content of my comment): Well!!
