I'm an ass and correct people who say "[person] eats like a bird" or "[person] eats like a pig" because birds eat a fuckton compared to their weight, whereas pigs eat appropriate amounts, are incredibly intelligent, and very clean. They also don't sweat, so the whole "sweat like a pig" thing irks me too.

I'm super fun at parties, I swear (after a couple beers).

Birds are also eating constantly just so they can stuff enough food into themselves to avoid starving to death.

You and I would so get along! I correct people when they say they eat like birds too, since birds eat a lot considering they use a lot of energy just to fly. I dislike misinformation in general.

Another very important thing is : you produce heat per unit of volume, and dissipate it per unit of surface. The smaller the thing, the more heat lost by just existing. (That's a reason why animal in the poles are big ones)

A lot of birds do have an insane metabolism though. Hummingbirds are on average just a few hours away from starvation. They have to enter a state called torpor to sleep where they drop their metabolism just to sleep through the night.

Amazing creatures. :D

Very true! For hummingbirds, all that wing beating burns a fuckton of calories- their heartbeats per minute are insane. I love birds, and animals in general. I've never found a natural case of an obese animal unless it's under the influence of an irresponsible human.

Real piggies are the cutest. So cute it almost makes me feel bad for eating them. Almost.

Nonsense. Pigs are delicious, and long to be eaten. Just not the whole thing in one sitting.

On a related note, farm animals have a low BF% and lots of muscle. The fat isn't profitable, the meat is.

Couldn't we just make them out of fat humans? Win/Win.

Whales are beautiful creatures. They have fat because they need it. That's who they are. People who let themselves go aren't remotely similar other than the high levels of body fat.

There are many other derogatory terms we can use to describe eatbeasts, you are correct. I think that pigs and whales are just easy adjectives. But I do agree, I like pigs and whales and it's an insult to them.

'He eats like a pig' 'nah, pigs tend to chew, I'd say he eats more like a duck'. Haha loved that Simpsons episode.
