In this clip from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", a cow's apparent indifference to its own mortality stands in stark contrast to most people's fear of mortality. What do you think?

Most food in our shops is genetically bred to suit our taste and human consumption. What would you have ordered at the Reataurant at the End of the Universe? If we could breed an animal that wanted to be eaten, would that be a healthy choice on the menu?
