Foie Gras Bans in Philadelphia

I’m really happy to see with the city murder rate soaring above 300, with the police department in disarray, and with officers getting shot in the face by the scum of humanity, that City Council feels they absolutely have to tackle the problem of Foie Gras being eaten in the City of Brotherly Love. I’m so happy to see that the city’s political leadership has its priorities in order:

Foie gras (pronounced “fwah GRAH”) is the engorged liver of a duck or goose force-fed by a process called gavage. To animal-rights activists, including the Philadelphia group Hugs for Puppies, gavage is cruel.

If you want to be taken seriously as an advocacy group, don’t call yourself “Hugs for Puppies”. Calling yourself that really makes me want to go hang out with Glenn Reynolds and blend a few into smoothies.

    This topic was on the Slappy Smerconish morning show a few months ago, and I noted that he (not surprisingly) asked no critical questions of his guest, who was an anti-foie gras squad. According to the Center for Consumer Freedom, Hugs for puppies is the local affiliate for the violent “animal rights” group Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty.

    Did Dick Daley happen to take a trip to Philly that I didn’t hear about?

    Philadelphia likes to look at all the stupid things all the other big cities are doing and adopt the dumbest of them. Trans fats bans aren’t off the menu, or is that on the menu?

    BadIdeaGuy – “Slappy Smerconish.” That’s brilliant. He is arguably the biggest tool on Philly radio today. Don’t call yourself a conservative, then rip the President, the war, and every other conservative issue that comes down the pike. Especially if you’re doing it to look good to Chris Matthews.
