wow. think about the poor chicken that being cut up into pieces for your enjoyment. Its crazy how you guys just watch videos like this & even cut up your own chicken like this and dont even realize how crazy it is to cut up a chicken into pieces. Would you cut a dog into pieces ? cat ? why not ? cut thats not excepted in our society. you wouldnt eat a hamster but some countries will. Chickens are living creatures too. and you know im right.
