"Who cares what the anti-waling lobby may have to say, but those are the facts."

Who cares if we extinguish an entire species! It's our culture and we ain't changing!

I'm still full from all those baby pigs.

"Whale is a traditional Japanese food and is a part of the Japanese culture"

Well, this culture clashes with political correctness. It's obvious who is wrong here. As usual, it's the placard-waving university students and their professors who are in the right. Have they ever been wrong?

I seem to recall that american eskimos are allowed to hunt some species of marine life that is protected because of their cultural heritage.

Slavery was a traditional part of American culture, but we got over it.

Having grown up in Alaska I can say that muktuk is a great treat!! no joking

I'd like to try some whale before they're extinct so I can tell my grand children how they tasted.

This paper has to be written by the National Enquirer people. BTW eating blubber? I guess if Nanook loved the seal blubber, whale blubber can't be all that bad.

If the species they're after produces enough of themsleves, let them hunt, just regulate enough to keep the species alive and viable. shiat, kids used to get made fun of on the east coast because they were so poor they had to bring crab for lunch. The species has died down the point where it's almost considered a delicacy, but it's regulated so that it stays a viable industry and species. Why not do it with whale?

The university professors were right about that one, too. More proof that Japanese culture needs to become less traditional and more Western.
2003-07-01 04:08:01 PM  
ah, what's the good of culture anyway? It just gets in the way of good fascist liberalism.

Why is extinction always a bad thing?
2003-07-01 04:13:03 PM  

good point, I think we're better off without the dodo, they weren't much good for anything other than cartoons.

I'm always starving after a good hump.

Most of the meat comes from creatures culled for scientific research purposes.

Eating anything that has been used for research porpo.. er.. purposes... That just sounds repulsive.

..Whales are among the most majestic creatures on earth -- an entire industry is devoted to carrying throngs to watch ..

When I first saw that I thought it said thongs (considering the source) and this pic that someone posted earlier invded my brain, so, here is it NSFA, don't say I didn't warn ya!

There's the tradition card again.
Screw any concern for environmental preservation, if it's a traditional practice, that makes it ok!

I hate the Japanese. I hope the North Koreans test their nukes out on Tokyo.

Please crawl back under your rock, Coelacanth.

I'd have more respect for the Japanese if they'd just say, "hey, we're hungry and there are plenty of minkes out there, so fark you!" rather than going through this lame-ass subterfuge of "scientific whaling."

Using deception about your cause is a sure-fire way of admitting you're in the wrong.

What happened? Your Nissen Cup O'Blubber cooked over?

Moby Dick diners spout joys of harpoon tang

You gotta admit - that's good.
