    Hi Mike, I knew the pangolin link was going to make me cry, and it did.
    Why the f*$k is it that so many rich, clueless persons with the XY chromosome think that by consuming the equivalent of nail clippings (keratin) from the horns of endangered rhinos, or the scales of these innocent, adorable and beneficial, pest-consuming bizzaro-cuties, they will have bigger, better boners? Why hasn’t the development of Viagra, Cialis and all of their friends stopped the horrible slaughter of our lovely animal co-inhabitants of Planet Earth? WHY is this still a thing?
