In Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, explores the pros and cons of eating meat, and one example of this is whether or not we should serve turkey on Thanksgiving. Foer feels that we take advantage of thanksgiving, and that we use that as an excuse to kill another turkey. He feels as though we could do thanksgiving without turkey, and it wouldn’t be any different. I on the other hand argue that there are many reasons we should eat turkey on Thanksgiving. One of the reasons we should serve turkey is because a lot of turkey is made every thanksgiving and letting it go to waste would be a sin itself.
In the article Eating Christmas in the Kalahari by Richard Lee, the !Kung Bushmen practice shaming the meat in the form of public ridicule as a form of social leveling mechanism toward Richard Lee. When Lee gave the !Kung an ox as a Christmas gift for their assistance, the !Kung responded by insulting the gift and said that if Lee was expecting them to eat the bag of bones and that the ox is thin to the point of death even though the ox was big and fat. Although the ox was very large in size and enough to feed everyone in the tribe, the !Kung displeased with the gift in order to balance out the social equality. The !Kung jokes that they would boil down the horns for soup because there was no meat on the ox. The !Kung did not express gratitude for the ox from Lee because the !Kung believe that the gift was arrogant.

This left Lee bewildered as to why the tribe would treat him this way when he was convinced that he had chosen the absolute best ox for the Christmas feast. Lee solicited the input of his wife as well as any other person willing to give an opinion. He quickly realized that his view of the great ox was lost in a sea of bad comments and criticisms. What’s done is done; Lee had already purchased the ox so he had to hope for the best. The scrawny ox was delivered to the dancing ground
