I haven't watched Dirty Jobs, but I'm glad it gives insight into the real work that goes into bringing food to the table. Part of my childhood was spent in a place where food shopping is a daily task and all fowl are alive just before purchase. So I've seen the butchering of many a chicken my mother pick out. While I can't say I can butcher a chicken myself, I do have more respect for where it came from.

Dungeoness crabs are the only food that I buy live (besides shellfish) and dispatch myself. When I do, I thank each for the meal it is providing.

It's been awhile since I've watched "Dirty Jobs." I agree more care and compassion should be taken for the living being that is to become sustenance for us. It does bother me to think about how our food arrives at our tables.
