ISN’T man an amazing animal?

He kills wildlife by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them.

This in turn kills man by the million because eating all those animals leads to degenerate and fatal health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease and cancer.

So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to seek a cure for these predominantly man-made diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other humans die from hunger and malnutrition because food they would normally eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, while once a year sending out pointless and useless cards while foolishly praying for peace on earth.

Merry bloody Christmas.
