That's right, folks. Animal Planet humor that in no way involves a certain hideously overplayed Australian daredevil. You saw it here first.

In other news, I really hate the fact that Fox News refers to suicide bombers as "homicide bombers." I think the word "bomber" already has enough homicidal connotations to clue people in as to what's going on. The whole point of adding "suicide" is to provide a quick description so people know exactly what's going on. CNN hasn't made this move yet, thankfully.

I remember when Fox started doing this. Bill O'Reilly discussed it as his ridiculous item of the day, even though he heartily approved of the switch. Supposedly it's supposed to de-emphasize the loss of the bomber's life and re-emphasize the loss of the victims' lives., incidentally, has a weekly feature called "PC Watch" in which they expose the week's more laughable liberal uproars. Naturally they exclude the conservative counterparts, like, you know, themselves.

During the Beltway Sniper affair, Fox almost started calling the killer a "homicide shooter" instead of a sniper, since the use of the word "sniper" to refer to a serial killer was degrading to Our Nation's servicemen. I swear to God I'm not making this up. Fortunately the duo were arrested before Fox could fully make the switch, and just in time to inspire the hypo on my Criminal Law final.

But at least the cats are cute. I think.


I think we should be calling people who eat meat Homicide eaters. If were going to make a couple changes might as well go all the way.

And people who take antibiotics should be homocide pill takers, while the prescribing doctors could be homocide prescribers.
