Fortunately, I waited until after dinner before reading this.

I suppose it's probably a little more elegant than chowing down on our abundant six-legged friends, as is often suggested, but if I have to puzzle over whether I'm eating fake real meat or real fake meat, well, thanks, I'll just have the salad.

How about "Carniffic" or "FleshLike"?

Makes me think of "ChickieNobs," a product Margaret Atwood created and named in her 2003 dystopian novel, "Oryx and Crake." The site Technovelgy.com cites their tasty introduction in the story:


"This is the latest," said Crake.

What they were looking at was a large bulblike object that seemed to be covered with stippled whitish-yellow skin. Out of it came twenty thick fleshy tubes, and at the end of each tube another bulb was growing.

"What the hell is it?" said Jimmy.

"Those are chickens," said Crake. "Chicken parts. Just the breasts, on this one. They've got ones that specialize in drumsticks too, twelve to a growth unit.

"But there aren't any heads..."

"That's the head in the middle," said the woman. "There's a mouth opening at the top, they dump nutrients in there. No eyes or beak or anything, they don't need those."
