You’ve Got To Love Fish

Really! You’ve got to love fish. Hopefully you also love fishing because it’s one of life’s better entertainments.

You’ve Got To Love Fish

Well here are six women, all celebrities, who love fish enough to get naked with them in order to draw attention to the sad fact that we’re not practicing anything remotely close to what could be called intelligent and sustainable fishing practices and, resultantly, we’re crashing fish populations.

This is a world apart from- and at least an order of magnitude better than PETA’s stupid attempt to manipulate children with their Sea Kittens campaign atrocity. Then Fish Love is a practical and pragmatic group of activists whereas PETA is a cult of pseudo-religious fanatics so this is to be expected.

The British environmental activist group, Fishlove was set up in 2009 by Nicholas Röhl, co-owner of the Japanese restaurant MOSHIMO, and actress Greta Scacchi to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth’s marine ecosystem and threatening local economies across the globe.

Yes, it’s true that Fish Love, like all activists, bases their actions on the worst-case scenario and probably overplays the immediacy of the threat to both marine ecosystems and local economies. That doesn’t, however, mean that they’re in any way shape or form wrong in slightest about the threat itself.

If nothing else, and to expand upon Fish Love’s theme, we don’t want this to come to an end, now do we?

So we really need to fish more responsibly if we want to continue fishing in the future.

Krill, Baby, Krill

It’s not my normal practice to lampoon the words and/or actions of those few people trying their damnedest to stave off the dissolution of America and to protect its beleaguered economy from further rape by America’s domestic enemies, nor is it in my nature to use their words as a basis for puns. Some things, however, are just too good to pass up.

A bit of humor, even a pun, is good though, lest we take ourselves, rather than our cause, too seriously. And besides, how often does anyone get the chance to see a whale shark being hand fed?
