Chewing the Cud With Mark Wilhellms

I’m one of those guys who loved “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” and still laugh my head off when the old shows turn up on my television.

Naturally, I cracked up when I recently read this wonderful quote from John Cleese of the Pythons: “If God did not intend for us to eat animals, then why did he make them out of meat?”

It’s funny, but it’s true. Men are born carnivores and it makes us more attractive to women. Think I’m kidding? Research backs me up.

A study by the University of British Columbia found that men who lead a vegetarian lifestyle were seen as less macho by women –even vegetarian women—than those who occasionally slice into a savory, sizzling steak.

One of the researchers, Dr. Steven Heine, was quoted in a British newspaper saying men and meat go hand in hand: “Meat has always been closely associated with power and privilege – a staple for the gentry and a rare treat for the peasants.”

I’m from Wisconsin, so maybe I’m more peasant than gentry, but I like what he’s saying.

There’s nothing more satisfying to me deep in my bones than enjoying a great slice of beef, whether it’s in a fine-dining restaurant or off the grill in my backyard.

That’s a big part of the reason why we created Red Meat Market, where we guarantee the most delicious cuts of meats you’ve ever tasted produced by the cream of the crop of local beef producers. Who knows? Maybe our products will boost your machismo, too.

Now “Chew on That”
