Save the Sasquatch: Canadian government to discuss Big Foot's fate

When they aren't talking about hockey, the elected gatekeepers of our wallets and minds are discussing more important matters, like sasquatches:

The sasquatch, the legendary hairy man-like beast said to roam the wilderness of B.C. and other parts of North America, should be protected as an endangered species, says MP Mike Lake.

He wants the sasquatch -- a.k.a. Bigfoot -- to be protected under Canada's Species at Risk Act.

A petition to the House of Commons, signed by almost 500 of Lake's constituents in Edmonton and due for debate next week, asks the government "to establish immediate, comprehensive legislation to effect immediate protection of Bigfoot."

Shoot me now. Please. I can't take it anymore. This has got to be a horrible, horrible dream (or maybe somebody put something in my tea?). People cannot possibly be this irrational. Can they? In such numbers?

Forget the gun. I'm off to find a cliff.

save sasquatch, huh. makes sense to me. the "make a difference" morons only have the inclination to protect the products of their imagination these days, e.g., protecting the planet from global warming . . . and now, saving bigfoot.

it won't be long before they realize the unicorn needs protection, too!

i'd consider jumping off a cliff myself, but i'd hate to deprive the planet of the small bit of carbon dioxide "pollution" that's a product of my respiration.
