Carcasses On The Course: Day One At Cheltenham Races

The Cheltenham Festival - Day 1

Unlike last year, there were no deaths on the track on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival – a four day horse racing event during which those residents unfortunate enough not to be landed gentry stay at home to avoid the now traditional triumvirate of verbal abuse (tits… TITS, oi luv, did you hear me, you’ve got TITS!), vehicle gridlock and vomit.

Carcasses On The Carpet: Torrill & Friend:

There’s something about staring into those cold, dead eyes that sends a shiver down my spine.

PETA vs. Lady Gaga: Let Them Eat Lettuce

You can see where she got the idea. And given Lady Gaga’s recent indecision regarding the ethical rights and wrongs of wearing fur, Dam Hong Loan’s PETA protest against animal cruelty was beautifully timed.

It’s conceivable she has salted the shit out of those lettuce leaves, but when you consider the issues at stake here, leaving a trail of gasping, melting slugs in her wake probably isn’t the most politically sensitive move.

It’s an ethical dilemma, and no mistake.

Take a second to check PETA out. They do great work. 

Lady Gaga & The Furry Flip Flop Of Doom

Anti-fur campaigner Lady Gaga:

 I really loved that one in particular because I thought it was a commentary on not wearing fur, ’cause I hate fur and I don’t wear fur.

PETA baiter Lady Gaga:

For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You!

Make up your mind, luv. Inconsistency is where it all went wrong for Madonna, y’know.
