We went out to dinner last night and something on the menu caught my eye. “Beer battered Perch” was one of the features on the menu. Does that strike you as a little strange in today’s climate of political correctness? How do they get away with it?
Rather than make a scene, I decided to put it out on the internet to access the outrage of sensitive, animal-lovers everywhere. Can you imagine in this day and age of enlightenment that something as battering with beer would be tolerated? Much less promoted?
I understand that getting slammed by beer seems to be acceptable behavior, especially with the college crowd. But, battered? Slammed is a decision made by the victim(?)… Battered is a third party action. There must be laws against it!
Somewhere out there is a cause-oriented person that will start a movement to right this wrong. Beer battering perch must stop. We need to get back to the more time-honored, humane treatment of Perch: hooking, gutting, cutting off their heads, scaling and then frying…in butter. You know, take the higher road.
