A Christmas to Remember

Now this, this is worth every penny:

Heifer International

I suggest that anyone looking for a perfect gift for someone who has everything put some money towards a few chicks (or, hell, why not a water buffalo?), rather than buying that tie for your dad. After all, doesn't he have at least thirty? And he doesn't wear them all, anyway. You should know that by now.

(Although I still think this is probably the most moving charity I have come across in the past few years, I think it's possible that I'm just jealous of the poor people that might get flocks of ducks for Christmas this year. I want a flock of ducks.)

Wow. I am a bit weirded out about the prospect of people giving flocks of geese and llamas as gifts. Hmm....

Absolutely, no way. I am total a meat eater (hello, carnivore!) and I dig me some chicken just as much as the next dude, but I can't see them all fuzzy and cute on a website and then say "Send them some fresh meat that chirps!" We raised baby ducks and chicks, but we never ate them.... Tell me they're going to use them for eggs or wool or grass cutting, but don't mention that they can use them for MEAT.

I'm done now...I just got weirded out.
