"To make the livers fat enough for foie gras, workers restrain the ducks, force long metal pipes down their throats, and pump up to two pounds of food into them per day. After three weeks, their livers swell up to 12 times their normal size."

"The conditions I witnessed at Hudson Valley Foie Gras are appalling," states Bryan Pease, Esq., Board Chair of APRL. "In visiting there and other farms to document conditions, I saw ducks panting incessantly and showing great difficulty walking and breathing in the later stages of force feeding, and I saw trash barrels full of dead ducks killed by the process."

This is abuse & mistreatment of animals for a so called "delicacy." Force-feeding them to make their livers grotesquely large. There is nothing "retarded" in disagreeing with such practices.
