Mark E. Smith, Lover of Wildlife

Mark E. Smith, frontman for The Fall, hates squirrels. Said Mark:

[I] would happily set about an endangered red squirrel with a set of professional hedge-clippers...Squirrels mean nothing to me. I killed a couple last weekend actually. They were eating my garden fence.

Wait, it gets worse. He'd kill seagulls as well:

The maverick frontman went on to boast that he "wouldn't have a problem" with running over seagulls for fun.

Not a big deal here in America but in England they sport giant hard-ons for animal protection. They care more about animals than, say, edible food and personal hygiene for humans.

I'm with Smith on this one. My views on animal killing are based on (1) how many of said animals-marked-for-death do we have, and (2) how cute/fuzzy/huggable are they?

So we have a shitload of squirrels, and they're all bony and unhuggable, so bombs away. Don't care if the red ones are endangered, we got plenty of brown and black and gray ones to pick up the slack.

Here are two funny Mark E. Smith video clips. In this first one he just blinks a lot (the video is helpfully entitled "Mark E. Smith blinks a lot":

Clip 2: Mark E. Smith reads the soccer results on the news. This one takes a while to get going, but stick with it, it's funny:

Here's a good Fall song, about soccer (Sparta FC):
