“Meat is murder—tasty, tasty murder”

"Meat is murder” became a slogan of some vegetarians/vegans in the early 1980s. Carnivores (meat eaters) struck back with: “Meat is murder. Tasty, tasty murder.” The carnivore response has been cited in print since at least 2004 and is frequently seen on T-shirts.

For each course, Ms. Newberry, in cut-offs and a T-shirt that read, “Meat Is Murder — Tasty, Tasty Murder,” would emerge from her galley kitchen, barely shouting distance away from the two butcher-paper-covered tables set up in her living room, to describe the dishes.
