Get Foie Gras--On Your T-Shirt

If you're the type that likes to wear your cause on your sleeve, this may be just your size. As part of their fight against California's pending ban on foie gras (only 45 days away!), the Coalition for Humane and Ethical Farming Standards (C.H.E.F.S.), which Haven Gastropub's chef Greg Daniels is a part of, has teamed up with food-focused fashion company Flavour Gallery to create a limited-edition T-shirt that says "Touche Pas A Mon Foie Gras." Translation: Don't Touch My Foie Gras. It comes in guys' and gals' sizes and 10-percent of sales go to the cause.  

Of course, wearing it out may slightly cross into douchebag territory, unless you're a chef. If you're a chef, you can wear whatever you want--you have knives.

That shirt is socialist. The words are a direct reference to "Touche pas à mon pote", the motto of SOS Racisme, the anti-racism arm of the Parti Socialiste in France.

Can't I wear one more in line with Orange County political sensibilities, like, "Government out of my kitchen" or "The Bible doesn't say I can't eat foie gras" or "My foie gras was born in a village in Kenya"?

:-P

Pretty sad when "your cause" requires an animal to be tortured.

Please feel free to spend another eighteen minutes protesting in front of a restaurant. That was truly effective. You swayed four of the seven passersby who were close enough to hear you.
