Ginger hatred spreads to rest of animal kingdom, confuses me »
Why all the ginger hate? Growing up, I had crushes on the ruddy-haired boys in my grade. I used to dream of being a redhead myself, even going so far as to dye my hair red in high school (bad choice) and again in college (even redder, even worse choice). Thus I cannot understand why even seals cannot tolerate this hue: A pod shunned its own pup because he was born with reddish-brown fur and blue eyes. Look at those peepers! And they can’t see you because he’s mostly blind! Poor guy’s got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one! Anyway, he was adopted by a human much nicer than those jerkface seals who spawned him. It’s unlikely he’ll have as much success being reintegrated with his family as the featherless penguin, but at least he’ll have someone who loves him! And a Twitter account, which *ahem* is following moi. Seriously, though, what’s up with ginger hate? Anyone?? [Photo credit: Caters News Agency]
Top 10 links of the week: a shuffle board game through veganism! »
First of all, SO FLATTERED: We’re on Carpe Vegan’s neat Vegan 100 list: vote us to the top! Also, the San Francisco Bay Guardian totally gave us a Best of the Bay 2011 award for “Best Righteous Vegan Sass” (WHAT?) and we’re extremely pleased and honored and in very fine company so WOO AWARD WINNERS WHAT?
Apparently in Bosnia, they make bulls fight each other and they used to beat them up first to get them angry. They aren’t going to do that anymore—the beating part at least. A win? Why do people like these crazy events?
Yo! The U.S. (where I keep all my stuff) may impose sanctions on Iceland for whaling! I HOPE THOSE ICELANDIC FUCKERS GET WHAT THEY DESERVE.
Good has a vegan guide to getting it on. Like, sex.
Downer about dead baby dolphins over at HuffPo.
Birds massage each other! Birds are so smart! And kinky!
The emperor penguin Happy Feet (gag on the name, but whatevs) is recovering well, and here’s a video of him passing his penguin physical.
Whaling is a slowly dying form of murder, so we’re happy to see that Japan is hopping on the bandwagon. The country’s Fisheries Agency has released a report with its first-ever mention of discontinuing research whaling as a viable option.
The lovely Sarah M. Smart heavily contributed to these links! Thanks, Sarah!
