I Really Need to Stop Reading the News Headlines on Yahoo

Japanese Fast Food Chain Launches Whale Burgers

A Japanese fast food chain said it would sell 200 whale burgers a day to meet strong demand from its customers amid global criticism over the country's bid to expand whaling.

Burger chain Lucky Pierrot, which runs 10 shops in the northern island of Hokkaido, said the burger using minke whales caught under Japan's controversial "research" whaling program was selling like hotcakes.

"We fry minke whale meat and the burger really tastes like beef," manager Miku Oh said.
"We have decided to add a whale burger to our menu due to strong demand from our customers and feel very thankful to the whales for allowing us to make the burgers,"


WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


Well, at least Miku THANKED the WHALES

Yeah, the whales jump up into the ships and BEG to be killed and ground up into burgers.

I think I might be stalking you, by the way. Is that creepy?

It will only be creepy if we have the same name and date of birth. You appear to have reddish hair, as do I. Hmmmm...

Ah, but it's not natural and I've actually changed the color since that picture was taken!

And I'm a couple years from 36. Oh, ok, I'm 15 months from 36. *sigh*
