Stephen Colbert’s Modest Porpoisal

“Stephen suggests that by eating endangered animals we can prevent their extinction.”

Amazingly, antis use this same argument to defend their meals of BBQ and fried chicken. Because, like, if no one cared enough to eat cows and chicks, they’d go extinct. So it’s really a philanthropic vs. a convenience thing. Seriously. You cannot make this shit up.

So I finally got around to watching the first few episodes of Lil’ Bush yesterday (now that the season’s over – how’s that for procrastination?), and it’s actually funny. The commercials just didn’t do it justice, I guess. I especially got a kick out of this clip.

Clam-hugging vegan goodness at the 36s mark.
 





 
There must be a veg*n on the writing staff. * (Oh, I hope there’s a veg*n on the writing staff!)

* Reason being, I’d expect ‘em to use the term “vegetarian” over “vegan” 9 out of 10 times…do most people even know what a vegan is?
