If your meat could talk, it would probably scream in a high pitched voice about the cruelty of slaughterhouses, the pain of being cooked on the grill, and the indignity of being eaten by a chubby guy in an A1-stained "Vote for Pedro" t-shirt. Which is why there's no technology out there to give a voice to the silent meat population, natch.

What there is technology for is a thermometer that talks to tell you when your meat is done being cooked. The Oregon Scientific Talking Wireless BBQ/Oven Thermometer proves that the pleasant sounds of "Your rare steak is done" are much nicer than the disembodied screams of a slaughtered bovine. What's even nicer is that you can have it tell you that your food is ready in Spanish, German, French, or even Danish if you so desire. Jeres k√łd er beredvillig!
