Do something with your fame, PSY

At the HuffPo, Prof. Emanuel Pastreich pens a humorous letter to PSY:

You are in a position to show that we can be happy without consuming.

Please, Psy, please stop eating meat.

The consumption of meat is a tremendous waste of water, soil and other resources that is destroying our world. If we were to eat only vegetables and grains, there will be enough food for everyone in the world and our soil and water could be preserved. It takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef, compared to a mere 25 gallons to produce one serving of rice or grain. That difference will make or break our future.

Read the rest on your own.

    I don’t know about Psy but I don’t take kindly to that kind talk. I will eat whatever meat I choose whether vegetarians like it or not. At least I’ll be doing my part by cleaning up the remains of dead animals which, left uncheck, can cause foul odor, mold, and a swarm of bugs.

    You never know – it might give him some ideas for his next song – the vegetarian “bicycle dance”

  • Kevin Kim

    “So Something” or “Do Something”?

  • Brendon Carr

    I know I’ve been holding off on my own decision whether or not to forswear meat until PSY could weigh in, now that Shia Le Boeuf has given me his opinion. The eyes of the world are upon you, PSY!

    Some think everyone becoming vegetarian might not necessarily be better for the planet:

  • Bobby McGill

    Or he could go the other way and pen, “Galbi Style.”

  • Mrs_Choi

    Good luck with that. Psy seems rather fond of 고기반찬.

  • Sinister

    Well one major problem on our planet is over population. Perhaps rather than being inspired by ‘Gangnam’ style people could get inspired by ‘Pyongyang’ style to save the planet?
