Save the Planet, Eat Your Dog

"New Zealand's Dominion Post reports on a new book just released, Time to Eat the Dog: The real guide to sustainable living. In this book, they compare the environmental footprint of our housepets to other things that we own. Like that German Shepherd? It consumes more resources than two Toyota SUVs. Cats are a little less than a Volkswagen Golf. Two hamsters are about the same as a plasma TV. Their suggestions? Chickens, rabbits, and pigs. But only if you eat them."

  1. You coud just eat your spouse or kid--it'd make more sense, they do consume more than a pet. Or if you have too much of a heart for them, eat your neighbors. or destroy civilization, it'd solve a lot of problems with conservation.
    maybe whipe out half the population.. no.. 5/6ths of the population. we could survive with only a billion.. or maybe just a million. There'd be no more conservation to worry about ever again. (:
