A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


“Happy” Meat? – 16 July 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

“Sadly, Happy Meat” by Eddie Lama is a must read – absolutely! So, please visit
to read (or re-read) this intelligent, logical analysis of the oxymoron that so many, who should know better, are allowing themselves to be duped into.

Here’s something I wrote 9 December 2006, after receiving “humane farming” propaganda in the mail:

“Humane” Farming?
By Mary T. Hoffman

“Humane” farming? What a scam!
Slaughtered pigs turned into ham,
Calves becoming “humane” veal –
Doublespeak is here for real!

“Humane” farming? Give me a break!
Cruelty your name is “steak.”
They committed no offense;
For killing them there’s no defense.

“Humane” farming? What a lie!
Causing animals to die
For human gluttony and greed,
When there’s no need for them to breed.

Doublespeak’s become the rule;
Consumer’s taken for a fool.
Evilness is called “humane” –
Now indeed does Satan reign!

Eggs are stolen from a mother,
Death imposed on any other
Animal that they can sell.
Shame on all who spawn this hell.
