They don't look very painless from the film footage I've seen of them. Neither does conventional slaughter though tbf.

It doesn't look pleasant, certainly, but the animals should be unconscious for the process. I believe the thrashing around is an automatic reflex.

Getting away from the point that changes at an Asda meat counter isn't all that likely to "reignite racial tension on the Isle of Dogs".

Some might question whether this really matters, but would you trust a dentist who had chosen to go bald? Would you want your children treated by a doctor who had shaved his head?

Each dentist to display a sign:

"I have not gone bald voluntarily"

Strange, strange article. I mean I assume this must be a joke:

and at weekends some think nothing of lying a-bed until noon

Mustn't it?

The move, of late, has been to have no hair at all and the men of Bog-Standard Britain seem to have taken their lead from the Mitchell brothers who swaggered into EastEnders, the BBC's main primetime soap opera, in 1990.

You have to admit there is a haphazard logic to this theory about bald men...

I have had the misfortune to do some research for Quentin Letts wife, one of the rudest and most unpleasant women I have ever dealt with, if she's an example of the fragrant 1950's womanhood he's expousing give me Germaine Greer any day.

The comments section generally is far from positive, plus a few mentalists. Is the Mail just trolling its readers now?

We are the Daily Mail website's readers. You could say the same of the Guardian site.

When the RMS Titanic sank in 1912, a large proportion of the female passengers survived, but 80 per cent of the men on board went down with the ship, doomed by chivalry. They had observed the code of 'women and children first' to the lifeboats.

Would that happen today?

Not only that, but to-day the third class passengers would probably demand a palce on the lifeboats as well! Outrageous!

This man is deranged. He's written a book called "People who buggered up Britain" (or something) in which he lays into various people and then complains about swearing and rudeness. Stupid fucking prick.

Date-rape drugs are largely an urban myth used as an excuse by women who booze themselves into a stupor, it has been claimed.

There are occasions when you have to legitimately, unironically love the DM, and the caption for the top photo in this article is one of them.

However best rated comment reminds me why I should never never read the comments.

This is a form of child abuse as her other young children can't all be receiving dedicated care from her.

She should be sterilized immediately.

If she had the money to support her large brood then she could have as many babies as she wants to but whilst everyone else is paying for them she should be stopped NOW.
