MONTREAL (CP) – Irving Layton, whose gritty, satiric and erotic poems left an indelible mark on Canada’s literary landscape, died Wednesday. He was 93.

Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1994, Layton died in a long-term care facility surrounded by caregivers and long-time friend Musia Schwartz, said Lisa Blobstein, spokeswoman for the Maimonides Geriatric Centre.

People Eating Tasty Animals

December 30, 2005 at 11:38 pm (Misc)


Funny, I did a search for People Eating Tasty Animals (PETA) and found alot of people have such websites. Seems they all heard the humorous acronym and decided to set up their own sites. A lot of them are really bad… some are OK… none are really great.

The search was spawned by this FARK.com article about an idiot with the other PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) who legally changed his to KentuckFriedCruelty.com

This blog in no way endorses eating delicious little bits of fried chicken or big chunks of hearty beef.

But please… stay away from Soylent Green
