... in which fruitarians are required.

Guys, I have a problem. I can't decide whether anthropomorphised food would find cooking shows to be gore-fest horror shows, or something between a fashion show and kinky porn. Or is it a little from column A, a little from column B? Would cooking shows be considered snuff-film-style porn to food?

Now, obviously, you're saying to yourself "David, they slice, dice, roast and/or boil food on cooking shows, to say nothing of the taste-test at the end; how on earth can it be porn when they all die?!". And this is valid. Except... well, first of all they're all already dead, as would be any food watching your television unless you have one out on the farm. Second, for us the purpose of food is to be eaten, but I wonder if food actually wants to be eaten. Is an apple that doesn't feed anyone any less of an apple to all the apples in the orchard that do?

Also, would the state of the food pre-anthropomorphisation (i.e. fresh vs cooked/processed [eg anthro Apple vs anthro Apple Pie) change the way it viewed a cooking show post-anthrop.? I mean, for cooked/processed (depending on the process) it's like a home video of everything from foreplay to conception to the actual birth of a new food, while fresh it's... well, I'm not sure.

I'm serious about this, by the way. I want to know your thoughts.
