Penguin tastes like chicken

So are Mencken and The Mighty Fang soulful? Of course not. They're just cats. Animals. In the end, just meat.

The same applies to penguins. Or those hairless apes that also afflict the planet. Just animals, in the end. Just meat. It might make those hairless apes feel better about their impending deaths to think there's something called "soul" that lasts after the meat is digested by the worms, but really, the only thing that lasts is what we create while alive. People remember Picasso or Frank Lloyd Wright by what they created, not because there's some imaginary "spirit" floating around like some invisible electromagnetic wave. We're all just meat, and in the end, the worms (or killer whales, or whatever) eat us all.

This penguin is going migratory for a while, so I'll leave you with The Mighty Fang grooming himself while Mencken, the next victim of TMF's mighty Grooming Attack, sleeps peacefully not knowing he's about to be attacked by the Pink Tongue of Mass Grooming. Unlike Iran's imaginary nuclear weapons this threat of attack actually exists...

-- Badtux the "Tastes like chicken!" Penguin


  1. Some meat is tastier than others.

    (oh...did I just type that?)

  2. Did Mencken launch a preemptive strike?


  3. No, Mencken slept peacefully until woken up by a rough pink tongue carefully licking the hairs of the insides of his ears. It seems that cats, unlike Republican Presidents, do not launch preemptive strikes.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
