How Animals Help Us

Please choose a format above.

Not sure who made this short film claiming that lower order animals are actually useful to us humans, or why - but they are! Mostly in sandwiches!

Little Jimmy is on a quest to discover how every animal on grandfather’s farm fits into their own little capitalist artifice. Eat your heart out, George Orwell! Cows are there to provide food. Chickens? Also food. Sheep? Clothing and food. Mink? Just clothing! Good for those lucky, lucky minks! Will more animals and their vocations be discussed at arduous length? You’ll have to tune in to find out.

Join Bridget and Mary Jo as they look for a job down on the farm to learn How Animals Help Us!
