Bad Eats

delicious vegetarians
As expected I'm getting a bit of push-back on this notion that humans are herbivores, but I'll prove it to you. All you have to do is wiggle your jaw back and forth... you know, like a cow eating its cud.

Carnivores don't do that. They can't. Their jaws are evolved to cut meat into easy-to-swallow chunks, not grind vegetable matter into digestible mush.

This might also explain mankind's almost inexhaustible desire to chew gum. It's an e-ticket for your inner cow.

If you're confused then remember that the meat industry is just that, an industry. It's goal is to drive into your head that you're a lion, not a mule. They make a lot of money that way. It's also how religion works.

If you're still confused here's a blow-by-blow example of comparative anatomy.

I realize this idea is challenging but that's why you're here. At least I hope. After all, there are plenty of other web comics that offer busty babes, cute cats, and/or outright misogyny for your masturbatory pleasure.


And now our "Chart of the Day":

n addition, it takes 2,400 gallons of water to make one pound of meat, while one pound of wheat requires just 25 gallons. Furthermore, a full 30 percent of the Earth's land mass is devoted to meat production. That's rather a LOT.

Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #120 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(120) 12-12-2011: Nearly 15% of workers are projected to be unemployed at some point in 2012. Way to keep that laser-like focus on jobs, GOP.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.


Dump Fox News

Fox News Lies!How does Fox get away with such outright lying day in and day out? According to the New York Times it's because they practically own and operate the Republican Party.

What I'm asked: Why did you stop eating meat?

What I reply: Primarily because the whole process of modern meat production is having a deleterious effect on the environment and on our collective health.
Besides, biologically speaking we're more like herbivores than carnivores.

What they expect to hear: Because I'm better than you.
