Quivering chicken

~From I Am a Strange Loopby Douglas Hofstadter, pages 18-19:

Would you feel any less troubled by swatting a fly preening on a wall than by beheading a chicken quivering on a block?

I like how he uses the words preening and quivering to describe the animals! Don't behead the quivering chicken! It's quivering, for goodness sake!

And to answer the question: No, I would feel more troubled because beheading the chicken would just be more of a mess.
