Today in Human History, I’m gonna show you
our exhibit on pets.
Humankind’s best friends.
Oh, is this gonna be nice for a change?
Don’t count your chickens, kid.
What are chickens?
Animals that were slaughtered by the millions.
Aw, come on!
A pet was a companion animal that humans kept for company
and showered with love and affection.
Were all animals pets?
No, most of them were food.
Who decided which animals were pets
and which animals were food?
Humans did, of course.
There seems to be no rhyme or reason
to why a particular animal was selected to be a pet
as it differed in every country,
But we do know the animals they ate
had one thing in common.
They were made of meat.
Weren’t humans made of meat?
Did they eat each other?
After the apocalypse, definitely.
Before then, not so much.
people ate animals that were made of meat
but they didn’t eat their pets who were also made of meat?
Yes, these people were known as hypocrites.
What happened if a human ate their pet?
It was actually against the law to kill or abuse a pet.
People went to jail for that, son.
But if you killed an animal that wasn’t a pet,
it was okay?
If it was say, a farm animal,
like a cow or a pig or chicken
who had similar personalities to household pets like dogs and pets
and were just as capable of love and affection
刺伤 射杀 剥皮 烹煮和屠宰它们也是可以的
it was okay, just stab, shoot, skin, burn and butcher them
because they were deemed as,
say it with me, food. Oh,
you didn’t say it with me.
I don’t get it.
Why were some animals more important than others?
Well, we don’t really know.
我是说 我们所知道的是 人类似乎对某些动物更偏爱
I mean, all we’ve get is that humans seemed to care about some animals more than others
because they were cuter and fluffier.
Much like society cared about some humans more than others
because they were blonder and whiter.
Did they at least kill the animals they ate humanely?
(laughing) Oh my God! No!
But that does bring us to our next topic,
slaughterhouses, animal concentration camps.
黄： 不了 我听够了蓝： 我也是
– Nope, I’m done.- Me too.
– Wait for me.
好吧 看起来只剩下你和我了 红
– Well, looks like it’sjust you and me, Rad.
Wanna see a pig get its throat slit
and bleed out on a factory floor?
