I don't know, they have to train if they want to win. You couldn't let veal out for an hour and expect it to win a race.
True, but I still don't think it's like a normal dog getting playtime at the dog park, you know?

BTW, did I tell everyone that we helped shut down a pet store that was a front for puppy mills? Yay!

In these tough economic times, JennyB brags about putting people out of work. JennyB: wrong on jobs, wrong for America.

That made me chuckle. Because I'm an ass.

By the way, I am opposed to veal. But when I truly examine my opposition, it's largely because I prefer a regular steak. Eating veal is like eating a vegetable before it's ripe. When you add the fact it's inhumanly* cruel, it's just stupid.




*Actually, it's all-too-humanly cruel.

I almost mentioned baby corn.

Isn't this just like the time travel question where you ponder what would happen if you killed baby Hitler? Sure, what if you let the cow or corn grow up? Maybe the world would be worse? What if they started a world war? Huh?

It'd be rather ironic if the Nazi cows decided that pigs were the enemy within the farmyard.

"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Communist cow - 2p
A friend of mine was in a Latin American history seminar, and one of the students was from, I think, Nicaragua. During one discussion, he became rather animated while talking about what sounded like "Communist cows." Which confused the hell out of my friend. After about five minutes of hearing about Communist cows, she finally interrupted/blurted out, "How do cows become Communist in your country?" The guy paused, confused, before telling her in heavily enunciated syllables that he was talking about Communist chaos. End of the term, he bought her a little plastic cow figurine that he spray painted red.
