Ignorance Is Bliss


Ignorance Is Bliss

In 'Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy' the main characters find themselves at the restaurant at the end of the universe, where the waiter introduces them to a talking cow, that recommends his good parts. The diners say that it is inhumane to eat a talking cow with which you had a conversation with only a minute ago, to which the cow responds "I want to be eaten, what's more humane than this?".

I watched a TV ad where the voice over tells me about the origins of the mayonnaise he is selling. Personally, in both cases I prefer not knowing.
