heh heh heh...they said "bushmeat"

Actually, it's a tragedy that humans might actually eat a specie out of existence. OF course, we shot the passenger pigeon into extinction simply because "it was there", and it had pretty feathers...

Of course, nature has the last laugh. AIDS and Ebola, anyone?

Authorities in the central African country announced on Monday that any restaurant caught serving meat from endangered animals could face up to three years in prison and a fine of more than 10,160 pounds.

how do you imprison a restaurant?

Hunters can easily earn up to $1,000 a year -- way more than most Cameroonians.

"way more." descriptive. farking dipshiats.

Cameroonians?!!! That is a funny word. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Say it! Cameroonians. HAHAHAHAHAHAAHHH!

I bet they have pointy heads with little tufts of hair coming out the top. Big old eyes and tiny little mouths with buck teeth! I'd be willing to say they're real big people, and they walk kinda hunched over. I bet the only words in their Cameroonian (HA!) language are "dum" and "dee". The stupid things have to come up with all kinds of combinations to say stuff. And what do they eat? Gorillas! For crying out loud!

I hate them. Maybe we should eat them! Some species just plain need to go!

...cause everyone knows white tourists taste better.

Hey! That IS fun to say.
2003-04-15 03:45:48 AM  
Where's BigPeeler when you need him? If you're watching, what do these things taste like?
2003-04-15 03:52:54 AM  
It's the selection that would put me off. Walking up to the gorilla cage in a restauarant, and saying "I'll have that big one over there". Might be fun to watch the little waiter going in to get it though.
2003-04-15 03:53:38 AM  
im gonna have to agree with hytes and andonbray about the funness of that word...also... uhh..come on guys, eating gorilla is the only way to safely keep cannabalism down, its like prostitution..sorta.

"any restaurant caught serving meat from endangered animals could face up to three years in prison"

Have they really considered the logistics of putting a restaurant in jail?

Thats it. If ever become rich I will offer $2000 to any "Cameroonian" turning in a poacher. Reminds me of some documentary shot in Africa (I know Africa is pretty general, but I dont remember where). It was actually legal to kill a poacher, and the government actually funded people to go out and shoot them. They even showed them hunting some guy and shooting him down. No close ups but still kinda eerie.

The apes will have the last laugh. Mark my words.
2003-04-15 04:13:47 AM  
Albinoman Do they sell poacher stew in the Cameroonian restaurants?

No, no, my name's not "Stu," it's "Bobo, Son of Koko."

What's the deal with all the ape-extinction-related links lately, anyway?
2003-04-15 04:27:46 AM  
NOOOOOOO!! There goes the only thing I ever wanted to go to Cameroon for.
2003-04-15 04:54:09 AM  
About nothing I read about Africa surprises me anymore.
2003-04-15 05:06:14 AM  
2003-04-15 05:07:13 AM  
i don't think i'm allowed to make links. curse my rotten luck. i did it right this time though.
2003-04-15 05:07:43 AM  
Man, now I'm stuck with 17 boxes of "Gorilla Helper".
2003-04-15 05:13:33 AM  
Dammit, Dammit, Dammit, dammit, Now where am I supposed to go to get good Gorilla Stew?
2003-04-15 05:13:49 AM  
There goes my plan to open a chain of Kentucky Fried Gorilla stores.
2003-04-15 05:52:01 AM  
so soon?
2003-04-15 06:46:10 AM  
After seeing that one show about that one lady that tried to save those apes and stuff...i can say this:

/got nuttin.
2003-04-15 06:58:45 AM  
You can still go to the McDonalds in Chad for Monkey McNuggets -- but I don't recommend the sauce.
2003-04-15 07:13:23 AM  
I hate every ape I see
From chimpan-a to chimpan-zee
2003-04-15 07:15:55 AM  
At the McDonalds in Gabon, you can still "bush" any sandwich for an extra 59 cents.
2003-04-15 08:30:05 AM  
In all seriousness: it is the way of this world that one thing replaces another. And, sure, it's sad. But, species come and species go. So do mountains. Accept it. Move on. Light follows darkness follows light....

Am I grateful to have been born to a species that has the advantage in this point in time? Yeah, I am. Most days.
Now. Pass the stew, please.

Cameroon is a member of the United Nations Security Council, the august body that decided Sadaam was really a jolly chap. Ranks right up there with France and Russia, apparently. Does this mean the UN cafeteria won't be serving their famous Gorilla Hot Pot any more? "Great big gobs of ooey gooey gopher guts, mixed with monkey brains..." - a song my kids sang in an attempt to gross out their elders.
2003-04-15 08:46:32 AM  
There is good reason to believe that AIDS came from people eating monkeys and apes....that HIV was a mutant version of SIV (the monkey version) that got passed on by people eating monkeys.
2003-04-15 08:53:35 AM  
Well its about time! That stew was NASTY!
But i will get pissed if they take gorilla steak off the menu. Nothing quite like a Gorilla Cheese Steak sandwich to start the day off right.

Gorilla: It's not just for breakfast anymore
2003-04-15 08:59:33 AM  
Tastes like chicken...
2003-04-15 09:05:17 AM  
You can still buy monkey meat in the Philippines.
I tried some last fall and I assume it tastes like human.
2003-04-15 09:07:37 AM  
"Nenge? Nenge Mboko from Cameroon? It is me, Lionel Joseph!"

"Lionel! From the African Education Conference!"

"Yah, mon, I was Director of Cultural Activities at the Haile Selassie Pavilion."

"I remember the pavilion - we had big fun there!"

"Boo-boo yah, boo-boo yah, boo-boo yah, hah! Boo-boo yah, boo-boo yah, boo-boo yah, hah! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!"

"Oh, memories!"
2003-04-15 09:08:00 AM  
Gorilla...the other white meat.

I got nuttin'
2003-04-15 09:34:46 AM  

Now you know that gorillas and chimps probably taste like human, right?

Soylent Green, anyone?

2003-04-15 09:38:29 AM  
At least we still have Gorilla Snot.

I don't mind people eating cats and dogs, but the apes can actually converse with humans.
2003-04-15 10:21:23 AM  
See my vest?
2003-04-15 11:08:43 AM  
Wouldn't eating closely-related primates carry certain health risks (like eating a human might)?
2003-04-15 11:21:15 AM  
is that the new incarnation of the band Gorillaz?
2003-04-15 01:54:54 PM  
god...i thought fark monkey day was over....
2003-04-15 03:39:01 PM  
Where do I sign up to hunt poachers?
