"Foie gras," literally fatty liver, is a disease marketed as a delicacy. It is the liver of a duck or goose enlarged to up to 10 times its normal size by force feeding, produced by cruel and inhumane farming practices.

Isn't it amazing how many so-called "cultural traditions" are based on extreme animal cruelty? But when I watch People in France eating "Fatty liver" they always just look like gluttons to me and not at all culturally interested. Culture is just a very poor excuse for gluttony in this case.
