remember vividly my first bite of whale flesh. My mouth instantly penetrated by a victorious blend of luxury and might. The ultimate power at the tip of my chopsticks. The saltiness of the cetacean meat, reiterating as I chewed it, that Man is the ruler of this planet. What is to separate us from animals, after all, if we can not hunt and masticate the delicious whale?
I shall not stir the mildly amusing debate over the moral and ethical ramifications of hunting this fantastic adversary. Many species, especially the one that finds its way to the delicious burgers at Lucky Pierrot, are very much thriving. Too much, perhaps. Sadly, for many, but not for you dear reader, numerical literacy can be as scarce as hairs on the chest of Apollo. And sadly, misguided opinions too often prevail against good reason.
But enough of this. To-day’s renaissance man cannot simply be satisfied by the taste and texture of fancy food products. He must exert great caution and good judgment over the calorie, protein, and fat content of his food. FTVS asked the following question: Could whale meat, beside inspiring the said sense of might, also be of health and dietary interest? The verdict is: Yes, indeed.
A comprehensive search of the so-called Internet, and a meticulous tabulation of the data set establish whale as a clear winner over other more popular and less prestigious meats.
