Terry Bisson's "They're Made Out of Meat"

I'd posted a snippet from this Nebula Award nominated science-fiction short story by Terry Bisson a couple of years ago. It first appeared in OMNI in April 1991. It provides an interesting twist on how most humans view other animals. (Yes, I'm outing myself as a sci-fi geek!)

A short film adaptation of it by director Stephen O'Regan won the Grand Prize at the Seattle Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame's 2006 Film Festival. It's available on YouTube:
