Kudos this morning to Boing Boing for catching the scariest machine on the planet, the (and I'm not kidding about the name, people) E-Z Catch Harvester, which is literally a chicken vacuum.

Watch the video, and make sure you hang on long enough to see the chickens shot out the butt end of the machine into the cages. It's like a miniature version of the human cannonball trick, but it happens over and over until the cage is chock full of chickens, ready to be shipped off to some meat processing plant.

I guess we weren't getting chickens from farm to fast food with enough speed.

Update: the Brightcoop site has taken the video down. Considering how popular the video was, I'm not surprised. I looked everywhere for copies of the video online and finally found one. I don't have the bandwidth to spare, but if anyone out there does, I'll be happy to pass the video along to them. Just ask.
