"eat me, I'm nobody"

Just a quick observation...
Did you ever notice that if an animal in the kids cartoons or books is not given a voice and a name it's "nobody". You don't care about it. At all. Your kids don't care. And so, it does not bother you (or kids) when that animal gets killed, cooked, eaten, etc. (well, other animals have to eat something, right?) We have a picture in the book when the Bremen Town Musicians (Rooster among them) are sitting around the table in the robbers' house and there's a roasted chicken on it. It does not seem to bother anyone...
