Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A British Columbia resident who adopted a potbellied pig named Molly from the SPCA and then ate it has been banned from future SPCA adoptions.

Molly was one of 57 potbellied pigs to be seized following an animal cruelty investigation on Vancouver Island a year ago. SPCA staff say they spent months nursing the pigs back to health before they could be adopted.

Someone adopted Molly in January, but the SPCA has been informed the pig's owner ate the animal last week.

I don't understand why people even bother reading the front page of the DR anymore. I mean, stuff like this, on the back page, this is what's really important. This about what's actually going on, right now, as we speak, in Canada. Yet all I'm hearing is "I don't see the big picture" or "This is just another piece of a very complex puzzle" or "My mind has become a tangled knot which I can no longer untie...". Doesn't anybody here understand what I'm trying to say? Anybody?

Pablum like this is to tide us over until Trump tweet's the latest 'biggest outrage ever'.

Imagine if dogs tasted like bacon.
Would vets have a side business or less business.
Can we genetically alter people to taste like bacon.
Would that change the abortion debate.

Okay that went to a weird place.

It's spelled "toque"...and I found this case to be f'n hilarious...apparently no laws were broken but the spca has a hair up their ass about this regardless.

#7 So Canada changed the spelling of took to togue. Why? To confuse us? Hmm, another mysterious piece of the puzzle that is Canada, but where to fit it....

Also, "toque" sounds a little... French. Is there a connection between France and Canada? I'll have to look into that.

He probably just ate a bacon seed. Even though I abhor bacon I see nothing wrong with it.

You see? You see what the problem is here? We say 'bacon', they say 'Canadian bacon'. Look, I've made it my personal mission to understand the Canadian psyche from every angle since my life-altering maple-syrup and beaver accident, and I can tell you with professional authority that something is definitely wrong here.

For instance, I have dissected so many Canadian brains looking for differences that it made made me sick. And you know what I found? Nothing, Nada. Our brains appear identical.

That's how deep the rabbit hole goes. The difference isn't structural, it isn't neurological, it's... some-how uniquely Canadian. My current theory is for genetic differences that cause undetectable morphological changes in the brain, and some kind of giant transmitter, probably broadcasting from Ottawa.

I'll get back to you when I know more.

Umm, no. We call bacon "bacon". You call ham "Canadian bacon".

We have no idea why.

From Waterloo, actually. Former RIM (Blackberry) facility. They've installed 11,000 servers there, too.

#13 Misinformation, from north of the border. That is clearly a lie spread by our detractors. Look, I have been to Canada, and every since they burned down the White House in the War of 1812, they have plotting And when they are not, they use their spare time to stew in hatred and anger dreaming of their day of final victory.

And if you don't believe me, here are the war plans Canada drew up against us, that our spies stole at considerable risk to their lives. Note that in "Defense Scheme No.1" Canada seduces England into joining the fight. What else do they have planned for us?


"In the end, he proposed a five-pronged attack. In the west, Canadian troops would take Seattle and Portland. In the east, the Quebecois would occupy Albany. Maine would be reclaimed, as would the Great Lakes. In the Midwest, Brown's plan called for "Prairie Command" to swing through Fargo and then head south to invade Minneapolis and St. Paul."

Same reason we call crumpets, "English muffins".

We have already won.

Our leader is a harmless idiot... yours is a very dangerous idiot.

#17 "Our leader is a harmless idiot... yours is a very dangerous idiot."

And.. that part right there is the most mysterious part of trying to understand the Canadian psyche. I just don't see how that leads to victory....

It's like we have some kind of idiot gap. And we cannot allow and idiot gap!

No blacks would be involved in invading Canada. It's too cold up there.

#19 Hmm. For plan my work, I'm pretty sure I'm going to need you. But how to convince... oh. I've got it.

Boaz, you need to type "the best looking feet in Canada porn" into google. I'd link you, but Rcade would ban me for life.

Anyway, together we can end this menace to our way of life. You take their army, I'll shoot their beavers (their only other real line of defense). Also, I saw on a documentary that not only are Canadians unarmed, but when they surrender, instead of putting their hands in the air they take off their shoes and socks and put their feet in the air. Why? I don't know why, I guess that's just how Canadians are. Go figure.

So... at least think about it.
