“Do you consider the eating of oysters to be moral and the eating of snails to be immoral?” “No, master.” “Of course not. It is all a matter of taste, isn’t it?” “Yes, master.” “And taste is not the same as appetite, and therefore not a question of morals.” “It could be argued so, master.” “My robe, Antoninus. My taste includes both snails and oysters.”
