The BS News Quiz of the Day


(
My schedule is crazy busy this week, so I'll likely just be updating the news quiz until I get back from San Antonio next Wednesday. - the management)



Yesterday, I asked...


"Animal rights advocates are opposed to Kentucky legislation that would make fried chicken what?"


21% said "mandatory in school cafeterias"
- Well, the batter does contain all the essential sodium and saturated fat a young body needs to grow (wide).

16% said "more prominent on the food pyramid"
- Look out legumes. The Colonel has got your number.

8% said "tax deductible"
- In Kentucky, that would be like taking the tax off of cigarettes and booze. They'd go broke.

55% got it dead right with "Kentucky's official picnic food"

According to The Associated Press, animals rights advocates are squawking (their words, not mine!) at a measure that would make fried chicken Kentucky's official picnic food. It gets worse. Not just any ol' fried chicken, but Kentucky Fried Chicken. According to State Rep. Charles Siler, the late colonel's fried chicken deserves the title because of the worldwide attention and economic benefit it has brought to the state. Hmmm, government product placement? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals bristles at the idea. The animal rights group claims that the chickens KFC serves are abused, even tortured. Claims? Yes, I'm sure it's just a theory. Inside the processing plants, the chickens can be seen walking around in swimsuits, drinking pina coladas, hanging out by the deep fryer hot tub. I don't see what the big deal is. It's nothing compared to what Frankfurt, Kentucky has already done to their downtown area. Here's an areal view...

Thanks for the link, Jill. I really do believe this is the will of (the majority of) the people. And it's appalling to me how little drive there is in congress to get this done.

Really, Joe? You don't understand why there's no drive in Congress?

Congress just passed a bill that said, more or less, "yeah, we know that the telcos violated the law, but if we hold them accountable then God knows what else'll show up, and then we won't get lobbyist cash next cycle, and then they'll think we're weak on terror."

We can't get them to say, "Hey, stop breaking the law that we KNOW you've broken."

We've got NO HOPE for impeachment. Doesn't mean we shouldn't try for it, but I honestly don't think we're going to get it outside of open revolution.

And I give that revolution another fifteen years or so, but it's gonna happen. These people do NOT give a fsck. They WILL.
