Shucks, the headline made me think there was going to be a reunion concert where I could hear "So Happy Together."

But it is good news about the honu.

Time for a limited hunt then. Don't let the turtles get like the polar bears, more than their environment can support so they starve to death. Plus with all the turtles you get more tiger sharks so there is a need to keep the popultion a little less than it currently is. I won't even go into how good they taste.

I don't know, ask the homeless person who ate her but probably pretty good since turtle is delish.

Bet you watched Bambi and think deer have blue eyes and live in little caves with all their friends right?

Don't be a jerk, we don't need hunting. We live in the middle of the Pacific Ocean so its not like they are going to starve. Nature knows how to regulate themselves it's man that needs regulating. We love our honu. Wild pigs on the other hand cause more damage to our forests.

Rachel Ray just had a show featuring 10 ways to prepare fresh honu. Looked mighty tasty. With the new economy we'll probably have to eat a few of these so we might as well know how to properly cook and serve the creature.

Poor pigs, just because they are ugly you hate them. Of course they taste pretty good too. I guess when you give a wild animal a name like "Honey Girl" it humanizes them and does make it harder to eat.
