Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2015 Week #2

A sign at China airline VIP lounge in Taiwan on the day we flew back.


Several years ago when I was in Taipei, Taiwan, I witnessed a demonstration on the street. I asked my friend what was going on. My friend told me that they wanted to stop importing beef from U.S. “Why?” I asked. “People said that cows in U.S. had gone through some process (DNA alternation?) so their meat would be leaner,” they said. I shrugged. “We eat beef often,” I said.

Last Nov. , this sign caught my eyes.

    A fascinating window into how others see us. I particularly enjoy photos of signs, and this one takes the cake (beef).

    Interesting to me that it was in the VIP lounge. I’m not sure why…it just seems they want to make sure the wealthy know they are getting non-american beef.
    Great oddity Helen!

      Tree, I think they call it VIP lounge, if I remember right. Delta calls it sky club, I think. We usually don’t spend that money, but the flight schedule was so bad (had to wait 6 hours) so we did on that trip.
      I went to a steak house, which was full of people. No one asked where did the beef come from… Helen

    Weird- didn’t know that about US beef. Might just have to google it. I would think its not with all beef? And I’m sure it’s because Americans want “lean” cuts. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I guess they thought they were helping the people who didn’t want to eat it. I have a friend that will not eat any beef, pork or chicken because she feels they have been genetically modified. It’s a subject that brings many conversations. Your photo – Odd. 😳 But, it fits the category. 😄
