[PL 211] Bigmouth Strikes Again

In this interview, Colbert is giving Morrissey a hard time about being a vegetarian.

Colbert: Why are you so militant about not eating meat?
Morrissey: cause animals are nicer than humans and they are conscious beings.
Colbert: What about animals that are already dead? Or a pig that has committed suicide? I know a lamb that is an a@#hole? Could I eat that lamb?
Has Colbert provided counterexamples to the claim that one should not eat animals because animals are nicer than humans and are conscious beings?
