The stupidest story you will read all day

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.

Ya know Heather Mills is slated to be on Dancing With The Stars next season, right? Talk about shooting ducks in a barrel...between her, britney, the circus surrounding AN Smith...the jokes can be so easily made now that they've sucked all the joy out of it.

I could think of a few other words for these nutjobs myself.

Way to go protesters! When all else fails, make stark raving idiots of yourselves!

I'm not surprised at all. The poor saps who PETA, Paul Watson's clique, and others dupe into raising money for them, mustn't realize that Ontario actually has abbatoirs where animals are not actually put to sleep by morphine or sleeping pills.
