A little less than a happy high
Mostly for margimello, and whoever else might appreciate it.

WFNX's Henry Santoro shared a news bit about a PETA initiative to get people to stop eating fish by educating them about how sensitive and intelligent they (the fish, not PETA) are. He closed with, "Well, PETA, you just keep spreading that news around because it means more shrimp for the rest of us."

In other (perhaps related) news, today I feel like a soccer hooligan.

Speak loudly child. You become our voice.

I think the fish are more intelligent than your average PETA worker. More delicious too.

I don't know. I've found that vegetarians often taste delightful... especially when served with curry.

I would argue that fish can be more intelligent and sensitive than the average human.

I'm still gonna eat 'em. Yum.

Although, one leftover from my brief vegetarian days: I still feel guilty eating a meal that has more than one type of animal, or many small animals of the same type. Shrimp, for instance, kicks my ass sometimes.

It really all depends on what your basis of comparison is. Typically, a fish is not going tolie or say mean or hurtful things. They are, however, just as if not more likely to run with "big fish eats the little one" as your average person.

Humans are a different story. Read your Herbert. ^_^

That child has Hitler Youth written all over him. No?

He does have a very Aryan look about him, but I'd venture that he's a bit too uncouth for the role.

I just like contrasting the young hooligan with the maniacal ten year old they always show in the monster truck ads...
