WATCH: The Mystery of Meat as Explained by Weird Al Yankovic
Before switching to a vegetarian diet, Weird Al Yankovic thought hamburgers were made out of “happy fun things.” You can imagine his reaction when he learned that they were really made up of dead animals.
In a new cartoon for his YouTube channel, Weird Al enlightens the unaware on the mystery of meat.
“Many years ago I found out something about hamburgers that really grossed me out,” he told Celebrity Baby Scoop in 2011. “You may not know this, so I hope I don’t make you sick, but it turns out hamburgers are actually made out of dead cows. I am not making this up. Needless to say, as soon as I discovered that, I gave up meat entirely.”
So now whenever you’re asked why you are a vegetarian, channel Weird Al and say, “Dead cows are gross!”
