Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

Honestly, what the hell is this? This piece, entitled “The Butcher’s Bargain,” is currently installed at the Hop. The artist, Krista Oopik ’05, states that she “wanted to emphasize the outrageousness of American consumerism.” The first thing that came to my mind, upon viewing it (not noticing the fur encasing each morsel of meat), was “delicious.” Regrettably, my attempts to purchase and grill one of the lamb shanks at the Hop’s Courtyard Cafe were met with confusion and, ultimately, disapproval. Perhaps I should have skinned it first.
