Rhetorical Analysis “Down on the factory farm” The last thing that comes to our mind when we order a piece of steak at a restaurant is how that animal we are about to eat was being treated while they were alive. According to author Peter Singer’s article "Down on the factory farm” he questions what happened to your dinner when it was still an animal? He argues about the use and abuse of animals raised for our consumption. In Singer’s article he states personal facts and convincing statistics to raise a legitimate argument. Peter Singer’s lead us in these issues throughout the article to point out how complex our choices of food have become.
Ethics of eating for me is somehow important when I really think about it; however, for most of the time, I will not think about it as I am eating since the smell and the appearance of food induce my appetite and deceive the moral of eating living things and the process of killing them. First of all, in David Foster Wallace’s “Consider the Lobster,” he discussed about the sensation of lobsters that become our food. This essay focuses on the perspectives of animal rights. When we are cooking the lobsters in different ways, we are challenging our ethics since the idea of killing the living things or animals and looking them suffering and trying to escape to die right in front of us is a situation that needs great mental and physical effort and strength. For instance, Wallace mentioned “it’s not just that lobsters get boiled alive, it’s that you do it yourself – or at least it’s done specifically for you, on site” (Wallace, pg.
“The ideal industrial food consumer would be strapped to a table with a tube running from the food factory directly to his or her stomach,” is one example of Berry’s use of imagery. Berry provides the audience with a sarcastic, vivid image of a lazy person being tube fed straight from a food factory to emphasize how ridiculous everyone is becoming. Likewise, he does this to make the reader come to the conclusion that the way that many people eat has gotten out of hand. On a lighter note, Berry provides his audience with an appealing image. He says, “If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.” This image is very pleasant and persuades the readers to also want their meat to come from an animal who has lived a pure, chemical-free life.
“Picture a fat person's hell, and i don't mean a place with no food. Instead there is everything you might eat if eating had no bodily consequences….The kitchen is a cavern, a stomach leading to the lower intestine that is the garbage and dishwashing area.” Using this metaphor was a good strategy because while comparing the restaurant to body insides it enables the audience to feel the way the author does about the atmosphere. This quote also uses imagery in the sense of her saying “Picture a..” and it is effortless to imagine what she is trying to express about the restaurant. The
And then to add insult to injury she states thank you for the special chemicals, dirt and poop in the turkey which we are about to eat. The faces of the people at the table clearly indicate discomfort and disturbed looks on their faces. Then she states let’s eat and they look among them like who can eat after that blessing. This is total persuavie logic and emotional appeal by giving a negative message on the preparation of the turkey for the table. Her goal is to make the people at the table as well as the audience viewing uncomfortable with facts that are skewed towards peta.
When I took a bite out of my sub, the meatball was hot on the inside but frozen throughout the middle. If students already hate the school lunches, they should at least cook the food and take care of the food so we can at least have a decent meals. Cooks always get frustrated that students complain about how the food is and we understand that they do not get to choose how they want to cook things. We get it. Students just wish that food was up to their liking instead of the standards that were given the school.
This causes a negative impact to the authenticity of Burritos. In a recent example, two Americans ladies are forced to close their food cart after being criticised for cultural theft. As they learned to make burrito by peeking into windows of every kitchen on a road trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico (Sailor, 2017). This shows that appropriation of Burritos is easily done and means that everyone can create their own version of Burritos just by watching others making it. Therefore, the Mexicans feel uncomfortable as their long history of genuine Burritos are diluting away.
The significance of food and drinks in the Miracle worker play is important to have because then the play wouldn’t seem life-like to the audience. You should also include food and drinks in any play or the scenes would be a bit boring to watch if all the characters were doing is talking. That 's just like saying no props were allowed in a play and all the characters are doing is talking and trying to remember their lines. One food and drink scene that the Miracle Worker does have is when Keller, Kate, James, and Viney are all sitting at the table eating dinner and wondering where Annie is. Another scene that caught my eye was when Keller sat on the porch and gave Helen a piece of candy.
Besides the cold dishes, such as sushi and salad, I also had to deliver hot soup and heavy bowls of food on a tiny tray. In order to hold the tray steadily, I had to be extra careful to prevent the food from falling onto the floor. Since I cannot walk very fast in that way, I received harsh scolding from the manager for my low efficiency. The fortunate thing was that the other waiters and waitresses were very friendly. They taught me they way to work more efficiently.
A person cannot just take a sack of crawfish from a farmer and pour it directly into a cooking pot. Rice straw, dead fish, and all types of other foreign debris remain in the sack. In addition these crawfish strait from the farmer are not purged and contain intestinal waste. For some, the constraint is not cleaning the crawfish, it is trying to find a place to buy some. If I wanted to cook steaks for 20 of my friends, I could go to Sams, Walmart, or just about any meat market and I could pick up these steaks.
Lastly, chapter nine notifies people that kitchen sinks aren’t as clean as they may think. According to a study by the university of Arizona, a toilet seat is at times cleaner than a kitchen sink.

From his hand two cold cuts of roast beef flapped wet and slimy at the edges. I sidled up, cast him dirty looks. Soon all the meat was gone and I was licking my whiskers and if you squinted hard enough, you might have seen a touch of a smile on his face. He calls me Fermi, people call him Mulder. Person is more precise, if you’d like—crazy people don’t attract friends, it seems, at least once they turn 55 and move out to the boondocks and put up NO TRESPASSING signs up front.

Fast food companies and meat processors are uninterested in the possible risks consumers are susceptible to when unskilled workers handle the meat. The analogy links the main idea to the title of the chapter. Schlosser has chosen to present information in this way because it emphasizes the cruelty meatpacking workers endure, they are fired right before benefits become available to them. He wants to affect/influence his readers by demonstrating to them how meatpacking industries only care about making a large revenue each year. 8 paraphrase - repetition of “blood” and “injuries”: “We wade through blood that’s ankle deep…” (171) “Indeed, the rate of these cumulative trauma injuries…” (173) Repetition Schlosser’s use of the device relates to topic and/or purpose by emphasizing the grotesque conditions not only meatpackers and cleanup crews undergo, but also the unsanitary condition in which the meat is cut.
