Curses... In the words of charlie brown, "always the basson!"
They look so unlike the Peanuts characters.... as if they were chosen deliberately to look nothing like lucy & charlie brown.
(it was the 'dick' bit, rather than the 'dog' bit, I was getting at. Plus, I bet dophlin tastes awesome...)
And let's not forget the species being driven to extinction because their ovaries or hypothalamuses are a vital ingredient in 'traditional Chinese medicine'...
Edit: why is it that eating doplhin is 'abhorrent', btw? I mean, if a particular species of dolphin is on the verge of extinction, that's fair enough - although the same thing can be said of the distinctly non-cute North Sea cod.
So unless they're about to die out, you seem to be guilty of exactly the same 'cuteness bias' you dismiss as a Western hypocrisy?

As a child i was very taken with this line on a Talking Heads record sleeve that I saw in WHSmiths:
"table manners are for people with nothing better to do"
I had it all drummed into me by my very class-conscious mum. I know exactly which fork to pick up.
on the other hand she also taught me useful stuff like how to read and how to put on a record.
I was under the impression that originally manners were invented as a way to behave to make people feel comfortable, it's now become so twisted round that they are used by those who know as a way to make others who don't feel uncomfortable."table manners are for people with nothing better to do"
This is a recurring theme with you Swears, are you really ugly or something? What's the problem?"Knowing the "rules" really impresses the girls too, and I need all the help I can get."
Again I'd be guessing but I reckon that Zhao thinks that because of their intelligence level.why is it that eating doplhin is 'abhorrent', btw?
