Morally reprehensible

I have seen some wild schemes before, but Dr. Phat Tony bought a goat, named her Jill, and if he doesn’t earn $16,000.00 off of her before March 15, 2007 he’s going to kill and eat her. He has even come up with a “Save Jill” t-shirt you can buy. $2.00 of each purchase goes toward saving Jill’s life. At first I thought he was just joking, but I’m starting to take him serious.

Hey, I’m all for trying to raise money any way you want. But I find this absolutely appalling. What he’s doing is a travesty and should be stopped. He has to think about how this is going to affect his family. Thus I refuse to donate any money to the preservation of Jill.

I mean c’mon if your going to kill and eat a goat, don’t wait a year. It gets too stringy. Personally I think he should let it age about two more months and then eat it. It should still be really tender and have a great taste. Hell, if he wants I’m sure I can get Wes to give him the recipe for his Scottish Goat Chili! Everything is better with goat!

Let's face it folks, that delicious walking roast is not going to raise that kind of money in a year, why let the meat go bad?

Update: It seems that JimmyB, the Conservative UAW Guy, has even gotten into trying to ruin to meat!

I heard 7 months was the prime time to slaughter. I'm rethinking the year, but I want to give Jill a fair shake.

I think if fed properly, 6-7 months would be good. Just feed her good fattening stuff like grains ;-) The Scottish Goat Chili sounds good.

The chili does sound good, but what is even better is bar-b-que goat. Very tasty! Or, eh, so I'm told since of course I am too nice and kind and would could never bring my fuzzy bunny hugging self to eat any creature...

And they'll be serving Jill with a nice bottle of Goats Do Roam, right? (
