Save the rainforest - eat a McNugget

Did you know that the Quarter Pounder has competition now in regards to wiping out the Amazon? Yep, these days it's being cleared at an alarming pace for soy farming. I wonder how many tree huggers out there don't realize how they are contributing to the problem with their tofu? And with slaves to boot! Check out the stats - it'll make you think twice about ordering edamame with your sushi.

Dammit - now I'm craving edamame!

Another threat is the illegal harvesting of trees for valuable hardwoods such as mahogany. Not that I own anything mahogany, but if and when I do, I'll be sure to check out its source carefully.

See? I think about more than just dogs and Paris Hilton (oops, sorry for the redundancy).

What did you think Heather Mills McCartney's leg was made out of? That's right! Mahogany, from the rain forest! And you know she eats Quarter Pounders with Seal, vegetarian my assssss!

I say let's make a fuel out of soy and corn so we can starve the world at the same rate we decimate their rain forests.

They'll thank us later for allowing them to overcome adversity.

Tanya - I knew it!

Cat - nobody will thank us because we'll all be dead from global warming. Duh!

Well then can I get a car fueled with Baby Seals?

No way - I bet that would stink. Go for vegetable oil - I understand it makes your car smell like french fries.

Then I'd always be hungry or fat.
