Madrid knows how to treat its gay penguin couple, Inca and Rayas: Give them an egg to raise! ABC News has the story about the two Gentoo penguins, who for six years have been “like the best of friends, living cooperatively because they’re in the same enclosure” at the Faunia Park. And finally, they’re getting their own adopted baby to raise.
Spain’s doing better than you, Canada. Of course I hate zoos, but as long as they’re around, the animals within them had better be treated with dignity and respect. Equal rights for same-sex couples!
Veg hipster cutie abroad needs our help! »
Look at this cutie-pie! San Francisco State University student and vegetarian Tyler Potts-Cornfield (a.k.a. Wes Leslie) needs your help! Which is interesting, considering he does a whole host of other shit (rapper, folk singer, writer, student, traveler, eater OK FINE EVERYONE IS AN EATER) himself. BUT he’s now embarking on a product- and service-based scheme (it’s like a mini-economy, remember those?) to fund his last days of a year spent studying abroad in Madrid.
If you go to TyTy’s (is it cool if I call you TyTy?) website, you’ll find a variety of things and actions you can “buy.” A cool Hamilton buys you a romantic 30-minute Skype date (or longer? I’m pretty fascinating, TyTy) with him. For only four bones, he’ll send you an original photograph plus a letter or limerick (I’m shooting for the latter). You can even choose your own product or service, but let’s try to remember that prostitution is illegal in most of the U.S. Every donation will also be met with a personal thank-you email and a “secret surprise.” Um, yes. Also he apparently has pink fingernails:
So show some solidarity for this young man, and give him some money to complete his veggie-fueled journey. Ich bin ein Falafel, too, TyTy. Ich bin ein Falafel.
