Merging Pig with Soy

What do you get if you cross a pig with a soybean?

If you’re waiting for a punchline, there isn’t one. This isn’t a joke. It’s a genuine question, but one we already know the answer to. You get Piggy Sooy, that’s what: a soybean that grows pig protein inside it.

Piggy Sooy is another one of these “foods of the future” we keep being told about. But as with lab-grown meat and plant-based eggs and insect flour and cockroach milk, there’s more to this eldritch abomination than feeding billions of hungry mouths and making sure we don’t boil the planet to death with our carbon emissions. The foods of the future are the future of food: patented and corporate controlled, just like everything else. And that’s not a future we want. Growing corporate control of the food supply, and with it the abandonment of the foods our ancestors consumed, has already been a disaster for our health and the planet. We need less corporate food, not more.


  1. Hell, almost anyplace I go now I can look around and see soypigs. But the point of the article is well taken, and this shit needs to be stopped.

  2. It's been done:

  3. Read and understand ingrediemts of the food one is buying. Especially when chemical names are used.

  4. Next time you eat out your GF, think of where it's been.

  5. I'm waiting for the vegan reaction to this. It's gonna be hilarious!
