let them eat, uh, cheese?!

animal rights activists have never managed to convince me of their relative intelligence. ok, to be truthful, all extremist fanatics come off as hare-brained wackos to me, so that has something to do with it (there being a great difference in quietly working towards humane care for animals and running around nekkid in times square “protesting” fur). sometimes, the retard-ity is sad and harmful, but sometimes, it’s merely hilarious. today’s example is the latter.

heather mills (paul mccartney’s feuding soon-to-be-ex-wife) is claiming that global warming is all about livestock wastes & mowing down the rainforest (perhaps they don’t have cars or coal refineries where she comes from?).  the obvious fix to this is to stop consuming cows’ milk, and go to rat milk.  oh, yes, kiddos, rat milk.  this chick must have a *lot* of time on her hands, being as how you’re not exactly likely to get your half-gallon container out of a rat.  nope, that one rat in high-production is going to give you less than 80ml per day.  dumbass.

the telegraph goes on to remind us that the rat milk plan was from a simpsons episode, so she’s getting her scientific advice only from the most reputable sources.  also, be sure to check out the link to “the federation of rodent cheesemakers,” who claim that dubya just loves “Fromage des Merdes.

  1. Oh, my. I remember that Simpson’s episode. But I had yet had a chance to explore the marvelous rodent cheesemakers site.

    I have to say, I’m pro-animal rights, and don’t actually eat meat myself, but the extremists really alienate me. I remember reading that they were campaigning something along the lines of “you can’t be an environmentalist if you eat meat.” Which is a load of crap. Along those lines, no one could be considered an environmentalist if they ever drive a car, take a plane, buy goods that have been imported or are packaged in plastic, etc.

    And what about the rights of the rats, my friend? What of the rats?
