That's but one of the many questions bobbing around in the ether today, along with the recurrent questions such as: what - apart from a publicity stunt - motivates an animal "rights" group (PeTA, naturally) to demand that the owner of Britain's oldest pub change its name from "Ye Olde Fighting Cock" to "Ye Olde Clever Cock" as a testament to the intelligence of chickens?
Those folks really need to tend to their own business; in 2010, the Commonwealth of Virginia was so shocked by the number of animals PETA kills each year that the state threatened to revoke their license to operate a shelter. Of course, cleaning up their own house isn't a matter of particular interest to them; it's publicity that brings in the donations, after all.
And those wacky folks over there at Westboro Baptist "church" are at it again, as might be expected in the wake of the recent Irish referendum - they've broken out the ol' "God Hates Fags" signs while trashing the national flag of...the Ivory Coast? Oh, drat; don't you hate when that happens? You're out there protesting your little heart out and telling the world that God hates the country and all, and suddenly find that everybody's laughing at you because you have the wrong flag.
And then too, you may wonder why California's OSHA devoted time and effort drafting a 21-page set of "safety rules" for their bustling porn industry - including a requirement for goggles or other protective eye-wear. The so-called "performers and producers" sorta kinda think that maybe the bureaucrats are going a little overboard, here - after all, they're not filming an episode of "House" or one of the other medical dramas.
