Animals That Aren’t Delicious or Useful Deserve to Be Extinct
Have you ever considered that there might be a good reason some animals are nearing extinction? And that it would be better if they just died off?
Let’s get one thing straight: animals are here for our culinary enjoyment, our utility, and occasionally our comedic pleasure. Basically the rule is: if you can’t eat it or ride it, it is pointless. I’m always telling friends to “go green. What they don’t realise I mean is: eat a turtle.
I was moved to draw up a list of animals that deserve to be extinct by Jim Treacher of another parish, who has waged an admirable, multi-year crusade against the unspeakable grotesque that is the panda.
Such headlines as “Pandas Do Not Have Personalities, “Panda Fakes Pregnancy, Because Pandas Are Evil Liars, “Scientists Prove It: Pandas Are Morons, “Pandas Are Violent Monsters And Must Be Destroyed, and of course his magnum opus “All Pandas Must Die have served as an inspiration to us all.
You see, it’s not necessary to like animals just because they’re “cute, and indeed the fawning baby-talk and excessive sentimentality showered on these dumb beasts by bleeding-heart liberals in fact only makes right-thinking people like Mr. Treacher and I deeply suspicious.
I felt moved to reply:
I’m right with you on this Milo. What was God on the day he created Giraffes and can we have some please? Only one point in your comprehensive lost of useless creatures I’d take issue with, if we let lions become extinct, when Roman Empire rules are restored as the pendulum swings to the right, what kind of creatures will we be able to throw environmentalists to?
