Boing Boing headline seeks Far Side cartoon for mutual ensuing hilarity

The moral here is to check the cetacean's ID before allowing it to order passerine pie.

A life sentence may seem extreme but the laws against mynahs for immortal porpoises are VERY CLEAR.

I think that a sign on the door "No Dogs, No Irish no Endangered Whales" would not go amiss. The restaurant trade is all go-go-go from what I can remember of "Diner" so cut the guy some slack. Would you recognise the species of every whale that came in? Bloody Greenies!

If your menu includes the pork snorkel
Take care not to serve any rorqual.
There's a chef in L.A.
thought the whale was OK...
Now she's in prison, the poor gal.

For those of an encephalophagous proclivity:

In the case of a small Sperm Whale the brains are accounted a fine dish. The casket of the skull is broken into with an axe, and the two plump, whitish lobes being withdrawn (precisely resembling two large puddings), they are then mixed with flour, and cooked into a most delectable mess, in flavor somewhat resembling calves’ head, which is quite a dish among some epicures; and every one knows that some young bucks among the epicures, by continually dining upon calves’ brains, by and by get to have a little brains of their own, so as to be able to tell a calf’s head from their own heads; which, indeed, requires uncommon discrimination. And that is the reason why a young buck with an intelligent looking calf’s head before him, is somehow one of the saddest sights you can see. The head looks a sort of reproachfully at him, with an “Et tu Brute!” expression.

ZRM will be stopping by shortly.

It's been a while since I've had a taco de cesos.

Of the facts Fred Hiatt grew tired
And thus our Harpie he hired
She spread smears upon Hagel
Like lox on a bagel
They both deserve to be fired

Not to be a stick in the mud, but shouldn't scientific experiments be done with rats? And don't they have a union?
