Beat It


The story of the day, compliments of CNN.com:

"Fishermen Beat To Death Endangered River Dolphin (CNN) -- Fishermen in Bangladesh beat a rare river dolphin to death because they had not seen 'this kind of creature before,' according to local news accounts."

I guess it could be worse.

They could've begun worshipping it and appointed it their exalted ruler.

Incidentally, does this mean we now have an excuse for beating Exxon Chairman Lee Raymond to death.

Well, if it isn't the $400 million man himself. Rumor has it he keeps a Princess Leia impersonator chained to him at all times.

Can't be any worse a religion.

Besides, they scare sharks away! Let's see Buddha do that!

As you know, I rarely laugh out loud, because, of course, we Vulcans do not cry out in this manner, but between this post, and the comment above from trish, it is now necessary to return to my homeworld for the ritual of pon far and rid myself of this illogical levity.

That's some good comedy right there.

How does one go out in public looking like that?

Easy Tom, when you have $400 million reasons for people to quit their laughing and pointing and start crying.

It's time for the fishermen to quit fishing, move to the US and open a smoke shop.

I think it's too late; it looks like someone already beat him to death!

Lee Raymond should've been shipped off to the rivers of Bangladesh!
