I swear every year that I'm not going to talk about the seal hunt because I have no intention of dying of a stroke because of anti-hunt protesters. I don't know how I want to die, but that isn't it.
But honest to God, you read something like this and you have to comment. And your only sane reaction has to be "what the fuck?"
This is my favourite quote: "They're very dedicated. They know that sometimes you have to go outside your comfort zone to raise awareness," Matt Rice, a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), told AFP.
No, no, no....the word you're looking is "committed" not "dedicated". As in "anyone lying outside naked in the snow for an hour when the temperature is -15 and covered in red dye to protest seal hunting ought to be committed."
It's not so much that seal hunt silliness starts earlier each year, it's that the protesters get more retarded each year.
