The video in question wasn't acquired by PETA. Get your shit together.

grin alot

If the buyer for Lord & Taylor watched the video, which shows these frightened animals being skinned alive while crowds laugh at it's pain, perhaps they would stop worrying so much as how to market it and walk away from this industry.

Raccoon à son goût.

Well, if they think dogs can't climb trees, they know nothing about Southern scent hounds. Beagles and Coonhounds are artists at getting wherever they want to be. It is disgusting that an industry exists to kill creatures just to make fat old women and young women with inferiority complexes feel better about themselves.

oy!

I vote for Billy Bumbler, too!

@M.L: you are right, we definitely SHOULD NOT let PETA get away with paying people to stage animal snuff porn any more.

Well, sorry to disappoint you waste patrollers, this IS a duty which properly falls under the authority of the national government. I refer you to U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, " The Congress shall have Power ...[to] fix the Standard of Weights and Measures ...". I posit that this is a standard.

Yeah, but can it quack like a goose?

It happens all the time. The Slimehead became the Orange Roughy, and the Patagonian Toothfish became the Chilean Sea Bass. In that great old movie King Rat, the "hero" sells rat meat for food, calling it "mouse deer."

Never seen one? See

Now decide if it really matters waht we call the animal, it's what we call ourselves if we allow this to continue that matters.

By golly I think we have finally uncovered a place where government spending could be cut that both sides of the aisle would agree to. Do we need the federal goverment involved in whether this is called an asiatic racoon or a racoon dog? Ain't nobody I have ever met in the hills of Ohio that has ever confused a racoon with a dog.

Will DD

Okay, so are we still looking for areas of government spending to cut? Because ....
