*the avocados in my fridge right now do state exactly this. This all serves me right for buying unnecessarily packaged fruit :(
With thanks to the Late Great Douglas Adams for the idea about animals modified to want to be eaten.

A large dairy animal approached Zaphod Beeblebrox's table,
a large fat meaty quadruped of the bovine type with
large watery eyes, small horns and what might almost have
been an ingratiating smile on its lips.

'Good evening', it lowed and sat back heavily on its haunches,
'I am the main Dish of the Day. May I interest you in the parts
of my body?'

I'm sure there's an analogy there with social media, (if we're not paying, we are the product) Good Evening Mark Zuckerburg, may I interest you in the parts of my life?

I thought of that one too.

I just saw the preview for a movie where the characters are food...
I don't want my food talking to me either.

I once saw an ad cartoon, a butcher holding a smiling pig, the pig said he was so happy because he was allowed to be turned into sausages, from the brand advertised for.. o.O

that is slightly sinister.

It's us trying to ease our own consciences, isn't it?

I have no idea. Somehow "yay cool eat me please" just keeps and keeps on happening, no matter if animal, plant or candy. Never really made any sense to me, unless it's about the various fruits which actually "want" to get eaten as part of their reproduction strategy o.O
