Cockfighting Reg hack cursed with cancer
Animal lover less than impressed with battling poultry
FoTW My piece last week on a chance encounter with the film Cockfighter didn't go down to too well with one anonymous animal lover.
Hiding behind the safety of a Tor Exit Router, the evidently unhappy bunny flamed away:
For promoting cockfighting, I hope Lester Haines entire body gets riddled with cancer and dies a slow and horrifically painful death.
Well that's charming. Your humble hack is aware of the dangers of falling foul of the whale-hugging brigade, and has accordingly cancelled a forthcoming major event that would have injected some much-needed cash into the moribund Spanish economy.
It's a real pain, because I'd already had the posters printed:
Any reader who needs an anaconda, a badger, 20 chihuahua puppies and a tankful of piranha, drop me a line. ®
Re: Oh, the sophistication of your whit! You have truly attained new heights of humour!
Oh get a grip Ben 50.
1) Nowhere does the author say "I love cockfighting, I think it's ace" so at no stage does he promote it. In his article he promotes 1970s film making. Yes he says he went to one, but anyone who refuses to experience local culture because "it's wrong" is a narrow minded eijit and a tad judgemental. I'm guessing you've never been on a Fox Hunt, but I'd lay money on you being pro the ban on it.
2) When a "raving foam-at-the-mouth loonie" launches for you and wishes a long slow painful death riddled with the most horrific disease we know... it's only polite to display your contempt. When the world presents you with a toy that requires no batteries, it should be played with.
3) This is the Register, it has journos like Lester and Lewis, I suggest if you don't like their articles you should probably avoid reading them and go off and write reviews for the Christian Action Project or some other such group.
4) You're on fairly shaky territory telling others to grow up.
I'd have sub-titled it "Maiming And Death Recreational Entertainment"
