Hi everyone, it’s almost the weekend so I thought that I’d share with you another little treat from the Onion. For those of you who have never heard of the Onion before, the website is a satirical news site. It is not the real news. But why is it funny? Because it takes something that is true, or resonates with us from the news and takes it to a new direction. Or in this case, takes it to a funny extreme. But really, is it so extreme? If we are serious about the dangers of overpopulation, why aren’t we advocating something similar? After all, if we can sell and eat baby capsules (full of all your essential baby-nutrients!) then we are capable of asking one-third of the population to die. So laugh, and then ask yourself, why is it funny? Because we can see some UN NGO saying something frighteningly similar?
Have a great weekend, I’ll be in a better mood after a relaxing couple of days off I’m sure!
