From Mangerines To Bushmeat: The Fall Of The Ace Of Spades

Another morontip.
You people are deeply disturbed, and this is why I love you.

March 15, 2007 — - In 2003, a large suitcase containing the remains of 26 butchered monkeys was confiscated at Logan Airport in Boston on its way from Ghana.

The 300 pounds of raw meat, destined to be served as the main course at a wedding in New Hampshire, was "oozing out of its container," said Tom Healy of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The bride must have been in tears. You simply cannot have a proper wedding anymore without 300 lbs. of dripping monkey-meat.

Cane rat, monkey and bat are the bushmeats most often found being smuggled into the United States, and according to Jennifer McQuiston, a veterinarian at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, each is known to carry diseases that can be deadly to humans.

"Rodents from Africa carry viruses like monkeypox, and nonhuman primates can carry Ebola and tuberculosis," she said.

'Monkeypox' sounds like a board game.

"Monkeypox! I win!"

Aaaanyway. Thanks to Cuffy Meigs.
