“Vegetarian is an old Indian word meaning lousy hunter.” Red Green vegetarians don’t get your rutabagas in a stew, it’s  only a joke.
Here’s another joke that I read the other day and thought was pretty funny:
“Eating less meat could help slow global warming by reducing the number of livestock and thereby decreasing the number of methane flatulence from the animals.”
Farm animals, especially cattle, pass so much methane through belching and *arting-fay that they contribute more to the greenhouse effect than all the planes, trains and automobiles in the world COMBINED!
Well, I thought it was a joke but believe it or not, lots of so-called experts are saying these things and are dead serious.
They’re citing research that finds gases from animals destined for dinner plates account for nearly a quarter of all emissions worldwide..and that methane is much worse for mother earth than even carbon monoxide.
So, they figure, it’s time to let these dangerous (but delicious) highly volatile creatures die a natural death and become extinct so that we may live a few more years before global warming gets us all.Holy *ap-cray!
You know, maybe it wasn’t a comet that killed all the dinosaurs millions of years ago after all.
Perhaps it was their own giant blasts of methane gas that poisoned the atmosphere and did them in; their decayed bodies eventually becoming the oil we now use to run our fossil-fuel burning SUV’s.
I don’t want you angry at me for making light of the situation. But if you’re buying-in to all of these theories and are thiniking about or have already decided to save the planet by giving up meat for a diet of tofu and celery, just do a little research right here on the internet.
There’s a lot of propaganda out there on this subject that’s designed to get you frightened into agreeing with certain points of view about this world of ours.
Much of it comes from the usual suspects with familiar environmental and animal cruelty agendas.
They are not concerned about the good people who raise livestock for a living or for those of us who enjoy what they produce.
They would have us believe that you can’t be a friend of the environment and be a meat eater too and that’s just a pile of *anure-may.
*ask someone who speaks pig-Latin to translate
