Christ, Are You Kidding Me?

I'm sure they'll be on Hell's Kitchen next.

And then there's this quote:

A separate 2005 study provided the first sign dolphins may be capable of group learning and using tools, with a mother seen teaching her daughters to break off sea sponges and wear them as protection while scouring the seafloor in Western Australia.

That's not journalism; it's unabashed speciesism. Sea sponges are animals too. So what if they're asexual and have no nervous, digestive, or circulatory systems? It doesn't make them tools.

Free the Porifera.

Stop dolphin propaganda.

McK's Public Humiliation Challenge

The lovely and talented McKoala recently issued her First Annual Public Humiliation Challenge. The idea here is to write a minimum of 100 words per day or else she will, um, humiliate, challenging...way. I think. Anyway, blog posts don't count (which is a shame because I'd be halfway home already) and there are some other stipulations and fine print mumbo jumbo, plus I may have gotten some of it wrong in the previous sentences, but you can find out all about it HERE.

I'll put something up in the sidebar to keep track. Also, I'll be shamelessly stealing borrowing the Koala Claw Threat Level from JJ de Benedictis because it's cool. So I should have all that up this evening. Actually, it might be tomorrow because this evening I'll be at the Throwdown In O-Town and I'll probably be too drunk after.
