i wonder if there are sadists who TAUNT their carrots before they eat them?
I have been known to torture my carrots before eating them. I use a sharp metal instrument to remove paper thin slices of their flesh.

I actually dredge the poor things (and celery) in cholesteral/fat laden Ranch dressing so I can eat them.
Oh worse, far worse. They dose them on a chemical diet toward unnatural maturity. they're jammed as tightly as possible with their friends, ripped bodily out of the only home they've ever known, to have the source of life sustaining water slowly dried away...
They stuff them unceremoniously into a box with their family, surrounded with the screams of slow death, hunked onto a truck whiffing diesel fumes down the I-5 for "processing."
They grind away their only source of food, plop them in a plastic bag, and leave them just above freezing so that they die... slower. Hose them with a little water in the store to make them look good, and then into the "crisper," where mold and fungi slowly infuse their bodies with mushy cancer.
If they don't get crushed alive in pieces or boiled to death, their only future is to become the soil whence they came, unfulfilled, without even the pleasure of even one flower, one pollination, one seed. A life whose only purpose is to die.
It's too much to bear!
