My piece last week on a chance encounter with the film Cockfighter didn't go down to too well with one anonymous animal lover. Hiding behind the safety of a Tor Exit Router, the evidently unhappy bunny flamed away: For promoting cockfighting, I hope Lester Haines entire body gets riddled with cancer and dies a slow and …
Indeed- someone knows a little Spanish
I'd have sub-titled it "Maiming And Death Recreational Entertainment"
8 week's & counting for Deer Season to begin here in Maryland... Shake & bake those Bambi steaks ...
It's always deer season ... if you're friends with your local sherriff, that is. Most road-kill deer are at least 50% usable, if you get to them in time. I don't hunt anymore, but thanks to clueless tourists, I always have venison in my meat locker here in Sonoma, CA. Waste not, want not.
Shake & Bake? Are you ill? A little salt & pepper, and a very hot grill is all you need ... and indeed, any more ruins the flavo(u)r of wild game. IMO, of course.
¿Títulos? ¿por qué?
Hijo de puta would be more accurate, as given it is dearest El Reg, chances are it is a bloke!
Slightly off-topic, but what drives someone to post such bile? We can all get angry and throw our toys out of the pram, from time to time, but FFS, that is a seriously disturbed individual.
I`d get my coat, but it`s 32 here and, in my terrible Spanish, es demasiado caliente para un abrigo
Our local butcher dresses game for a lot of the hunters around here, and also makes some fine venison sausage and the like. So we can get fresh venison in season, and frozen or otherwise preserved much of the rest of the year. Just one of several reasons why a good local butcher is so much better than the meat counter at the local gigamart.
Best. Response. Ever!
What no kittens versus Rottweilers?
..... or should that be kittunz?
You need a licence for kittens versus rottweilers.
My Rottie is currently acting as babysitter for the first litter of kittens we've had here on the ranch in years. Gut feeling is that they will be pushing the big softie around in a couple months ...
 Stray came in *very* pregnant ... All our cats are spayed & neutered. She will be. Currently, she's in my lap, on a "kitten break" ... My main whippet is miffed that the Rottie took the nursemaid's job, but he'll deal with it :-)
Put me down for a fiver on the piranhas and a tenner on the badger - those things are vicious little bastards.
Read any Cordwainer Smith? I'd back Mother Hitton's Littul Kittons against rotweilers any day.
"...those things are vicious little bastards."
Oh yes indeed!
I was once bitten *through* a pair of heavy duty gloves while trying to assist an RSPCA officer. The contractors had just dumped the old barbwire they were replacing and it had become tangled in it.
Ungrateful sod didn't seem to appreciate the fact we were trying to help...
@ Arthur the cat - Re: pish
You misspelled it.
Oh, wait, what's that? AAAAAAArrrrgghhhhh......
Lester, I have a licence for kittens vs hammer. I'm pretty sure if you hold the rottweilers by their hind legs and hammer them down on the kittens that would be covered. Alternatively, you could just paint a hammer on the rottweilers. Or on the piranhas (take waterproof colour in that case). Or on about everything that is willing to tear up kittens.
Re: Re: pish
Sounds good. Let's do lunch. My local bistro does a nice "Endangered Species Mixed Grill". I can recommend the Siberian tiger and Iberian lynx kebabs, in a Hawaiian monk seal fat sauce sprinkled with powdered Sumatran rhino horn.
Re: @ Arthur the cat - pish
You must be related to Hodgesaaaarrrgghh then?
(Thanks Terry Pratchett)
...... although if I remember correctly, and it is a long while since I read it, were the Kittons actually Mink?
Shirley us commantards can come up with something better before next weekend?
It's only Tuesday. And it's foggy. Good poaching weather ...
R U just down the road ? Very cold and foggy here, just like the inside of the Oz labour party headquarters.
Better quality comments are required.
Where is Paris lately BTW ? oh wait, she must be an advisor on that new TV thing, The Shire, without Bilbo, his offsider and Orcs to lighten the story.
You *do* know how humourless and militant some of these fannies can be?
Oh hang on, of course you do. Lol, play on!
Re: Oh god
Yes, however he is in Spain, which I feel keeps him fairly safe from the English \ American nutters who make up the bulk of the problem.
Also People for the Eating of Tasty Animals need to feature on future posters!
Re: Oh god
Yeah, he really fell fowl of them this time.
Save the Whales!
Collect the whole set :P
I'll take it, and the chihauhau puppies too (need something i can feed it)
People for the Eating of Tasty Animals?
Cockfights are such a waste of precious chicken meat.
Flame icon for BBQ flame-grilling. Mmm.
Eating cockerels? Sorry, too stringy. They're only good for soup.
Only soup? (was: Re: PETA)
I'm fairly fond of most variations of Coq Au Vin ... none of which are soup.
Quote Steven Wright
"I love defenceless animals ... especially in a good gravy."
Flame icon because we can barbecue them as well.
"Lester Haines' " or, if you must, "Lester Haines's".
Its not even Friday ... you owe me a new keyboard.
Yet another good day for keyboard manufacturers. Nice one Lester.
Can I have....
Badger please - the cows in the field next to me make too much noise and I am hoping a bit of TB will sort them out!
Futurama: mankind for ethical animal treatment :-)
or Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back: Coalition for the Liberation of Itinerant Tree-dwellers.
Pickle an Otter..
That's right up there with...
Mega-Shark vs Giant Octopus!
I'll take the chihuahuas please
My pet rats could do with a light snack.
We here at People Against Total Horribleness & Extreme TormentIng of Cuddly Critters, or PATHETICC for short are horrified at the viciousness of setting Piranhas on Chihuahua.
Piranhas have none nothing wrong and are a lovely animal, unlike those little rat bastard fake yappies!!!
Won't someone think of the Fish?????
Seriously however... awesome response LH but you owe me a keyboard.
Carry On Cagefighting
Much depends on the size of your anaconda (as the actress said to the bishop).
Livestock should be raised in really good conditions and treated well, lots of room, no stress, they then taste better!
Kittens vs dog - hmm cats can do a lot of damage.
To be fair..
..you are a bit of bell-end for promoting cock fighting in the previous article.
You basically seem like the Jeremy Clarkson of the IT world. And just to be clear, that really isn't a compliment.
Re: To be fair..
Re: To be fair..
Was he though? Since when did talking about something automatically constitute "promoting" it?
Re: To be fair..
If it wasn't for Lester's article I wouldn't be on my way to Devon to pick up a load of chickens *right this very second* and looking for a small out of the way arena.
Re: To be fair..
"Since when did talking about something automatically constitute "promoting" it?"
Lester told us he actually went to a cockfight and put money on it: that promotes it for sure.
"If it wasn't for Lester's article I wouldn't be on my way to Devon to pick up a load of chickens *right this very second* and looking for a small out of the way arena."
If you are saying that you are about to hold a cockfight then I hope you get caught and go to jail: there is no excuse for animal cruelty, which is why it is illegal.
