This is such a heinous crime that of course righteous and civic-minded individuals have informed the restaurant of their opinions regarding the burger, in the form of hate mail and death threats. Nothing extreme or anything, of course -- I mean, how else are they supposed to spread their message of love and non-violence? The only way to share your belief that killing and eating animals is wrong is by threatening to kill humans. For some reason, some people have been objecting to this? I don't get it, really. They aren't saying the restaurant owners should be eaten, like they do to those poor innocent baby seals! Just that they should be killed! Which, really, is a fair expectation, don't you think?
All kidding aside, why the hell are the animal rights nutjobs only now getting freaked out by this place. It's not like they were a vegan place that started selling seal burgers in a moment of madness. They had beef burgers before this, presumably. They had chicken on the menu. They have been selling meat the entire time. Are cows worth less than seals now? Is there a hierarchy of animals, where it becomes less and less offensive to eat them? How come pigs are lower than seals on that hierarchy? Pigs are adorable. Look at this guy. How is this little babykins worth fewer points than a boring old seal not eating ice cream.
Raise them on ice cream for extra deliciousness
Oh, wait, I figured it out! Clearly, up until now the restaurant hasn't been selling meat made of animals. They've been selling meat that was not made of animals. Beef is not made of cows, it is grown on a farm somewhere, and this seal burger is the first time any animals have ever been made into meat for this restaurant. All the rest they got was made at the supermarket, where as we all know, no animals were harmed. It's the only thing that makes sense, really.
