So, I'm not a vegetarian, though I am to vegetarians what metrosexuals are to homosexuals: I share many of their traits. I actually enjoy meat substitutes. (Why doesn't every restaurant serve seitan, especially made the way they make it at Zen Palate? Mmmmmmmmm.) And I get a little squicked the more my food resembles the animal it came from. Which is why the title of this USDA report (oh, don't bother clicking on it, it's boring) triggers my "ick" reflex:

United States Standards for Grades of Carcass Beef

At least they don't call them cadavers.
