cow crap

So the second season of Penn & Teller's Bullshit is out on dvd now. We watched the first four episodes last night. The first one is about PETA and is really disturbing and good. One of the things they dug up using their old tax returns is that PETA "saved" about 2000 animals one year but euthanized over 1000 of them and then stowed them in their gigantic $9000 walk in freezer. Personally I'd be happy to see a reality show with PETA supporters on an island with a bunch of liberated animals and not much to eat. Who do you think would survive?

Reminds me of the time I asked a vegan co-worker if she was OK with people eating and wearing animals if they killed them themselves. She said no, that she didn't believe animals were here on the planet for our food or clothing, and that we weren't on the planet to eat or wear them. Then I asked her, "Well, what is our purpose on the planet?" She replied, "That's for everyone to decide for themself."

I paused for a beat and then asked, "Well, what if you decide that your purpose on the planet is to kill and eat anything that can't outrun you?"

She didn't speak to me for an entire week...

Vegans are too protein-starved to really think things out. I bet if you gave her a hamburger she could've come up with a better argument!
