It’s funny, but the first thing to go through The Mayor’s mind after reading the list above, isn’t “oh man, that sounds like a dangerous place.” Nope, the first thing that went through The Mayor’s mind were the words, “throw another shrimp on the baaaaarbie!”

Damn you, Paul Hogan, and your cheesy Australian tourism ads.

Save Australia–Eat A Camel

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

A report by The Desert Knowledge Cooperative Research Centre in Australia says that camels are inflicting terrible damage on Australia’s ecosystem. In order to preserve Australia’s tender ecosystem, co-author Murray McGregor suggest people start eating them:

“Eat a camel today, I’ve done it,” Professor McGregor told AAP.

“It’s beautiful meat.

“It’s a bit like beef. It’s as lean as lean, it’s an excellent health food.”

They are inflicting major damage on fragile desert ecosystems, water sources, rare plants and animals, and indigenous sites, the report found.

Camels also made climate change worse by burping up greenhouse gases and turning various landscapes into deserts.

I’m all for eating camels, I personally have no problem with it. The problem I have is with Australia’s delicate ecosystem. Does anyone else feel the way I do, that the ecosystem is nothing more than a little bitch? I’m so sick and tired of hearing about the poor ecosystems, the delicate ecosystems, the tender ecosystems. Christ, maybe it’s time the ecosystems grow a pair.

Now Australians are being asked to eat camels because the ecosystem is losing bugs and plants or some shit like that. Maybe if the precious ecosystem took proper care of its bugs in the first place, it wouldn’t be in the mess it’s in right now.

It’s time for the ecosystems to start fending for itself. If I hear one more story about the poor ecosystem, I swear to any God but the Christian God that I’m going to kick the ecosystems right in the soft spot.

Oen last thing, look at this line I saw in the article:

Camel is on the menu in Alice Springs

Now have a look at this link.

Coincidence? I think not.
