Today’s award goes to some truly daft “vegan activists” in Spain. This is the moment two vegan activists separate chickens from cockerels because they ‘don’t want the hens to be raped’. The video was released by the Spanish vegan group Almas Veganas (Vegan Souls), based in Girona in the north-eastern Spanish region of Catalonia. They published the video on Twitter where it has been viewed 570,000 times. On their Twitter page, the activists describe themselves as ‘anti-speciesist’ and ‘transfeminist.’ . . . In the footage, the two activists can be seen smashing eggs on the ground because ‘they belong to the

Today’s award goes to the author of an academic paper on – of all things – the sexual exploitation of dairy cows. A paper currently being promoted by a New York university calls on society to consider the rampant “sexual exploitation” of dairy cows by the milk industry in order to “fully fight gendered oppression.” Specifically, the author compares cattle insemination to “rape” and the milking of cows to “sexual abuse.” Titled “Readying the Rape Rack: Feminism and the Exploitation of Non-Human Reproductive Systems,” the paper was published Friday in a journal called Dissenting Voices, which is published and edited by the

Today’s award goes to actor Alec Baldwin for this tweet about the death by suicide, while in prison, of Jeffrey Epstein: He shares the award with Ron Perlman, Brian Koppelman, Dave Bautista, George Takei, and probably others in the Hollywood kafeeklatsch, all of whom also inferred a Russian hand of some sort in Epstein’s death. I agree that Epstein’s suicide was, and remains, highly suspicious, with enough grounds for doubt as to what happened to keep us guessing for years to come . . . but Russia?  Really?  I’d have thought there’s nothing Russia would have liked more than to have Epstein’s “little black book” (and video

Today’s award goes to basketball player D. J. Cooper, an American competing in Europe. Cooper had to undergo a doping control to potentially join the Bosnian national team as a naturalized player. The test results on the urine that Cooper provided as his own, revealed that he’s… pregnant. More precisely, the presence of “gHC”, a hormone the placenta produces after impregnation, was detected in the urine sample. FIBA immediately suspended the player for fraud. Cooper’s punishment will keep him out of courts until June 20, 2020. There’s more at the link. It seems Mr. Cooper “borrowed” his girlfriend’s urine for the sample

Today’s award goes to a particularly dense Canadian politician wannabe.  A tip o’ the hat to Small Dead Animals for finding her tweet. Take a closer look at the last photograph. Click the image below for a larger view. She’s wearing high heeled boots on slippery rocks, and there’s no fishing line on either the reel or the rod!  Can you say “political poser”?  I thought you could . . . and proven to be one by her own tweet!  I daresay her opponent(s) are printing poster-size copies of that photograph right now, and rubbing their hands in glee at the drubbing they’re about to give

Today’s award goes to some red-faced Green protesters in England.  A tip o’ the hat to reader Snoggeramus for the link. Bungling climate change activists chanted slogans and banged drums outside a London office block today, only to discover the energy company they thought was based there has long moved on. Protesters from a group called ‘Reclaim the Power’ picketed what they thought was the office of gas plant firm Drax in London’s Moorgate this morning, closing the usually busy road for hours and causing fury among local workers. But their chants aimed at upsetting Drax’s bosses were in vain after

Today’s award goes to an Australian stoner. An allegedly stoned and unlicensed Melbourne teenager, accused of ramming a police car and breaking an officer’s leg, has been granted bail. Benjamin Saurini, 19, previously said he couldn’t see the police vehicle because his car windows had fogged up from smoking cannabis after a session with friends on Friday night. Saurini allegedly took off when he thought he was going to be “jumped” by officers on patrol, but panicked and side-swiped their car. He is accused of pinning a senior constable against the car, breaking his leg. Saurini allegedly read a news article

Today’s award goes to the Patrouille Suisse, the aerobatic display team of the Swiss Air Force, for this mistake. A rather unusual as well as bit embarrassing “incident” occurred to the the Swiss Air Force’s “Patrouille Suisse” Display Team on Saturday Jul. 6, 2019: the team’s jets were scheduled to fly over Langenbruck, in northwestern Switzerland, south of Basel, where the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the death of Swiss aviation pioneer Oskar Bider was held, but they flew over Mümliswil, missing the target by about 6 km (about 3¾ miles). “Unfortunate circumstances” were the root cause of the mistake according to a spokesman of

Today’s award goes to anyone who spends money on this. Have you ever heard of cow cuddling? It’s the hottest trend at the moment, and experts say it’s a beneficial wellness method. . . . Mountain Horse Farm in upstate New York invites visitors to try the “Horse & Cow Experience.” Individuals are given a chance to spend some time with large animals, and they can also pet or brush animals. If you don’t like to play with cows, you can just cuddle with them. The body temperature of cows is higher than ours and have a lower heart rate. Cuddling

Today’s award goes to the Crown Prosecution Service in England. A multi-million-pound diamond scam case collapsed after it emerged that the prosecution’s star witness was a fantasist with no qualifications. Between May 2011 and February 2015, more than 70 victims – mainly vulnerable pensioners – were conned into investing into one of five companies which invested in the diamond and carbon credit industries. In total, they lost £3.5million [about US $4.4 million] and today at Southwark Crown Court eight defendants walked free from court after a judge was forced to deliver not guilty verdicts on multiple fraud charges. The case collapsed following “chaotic”
