Boxing Gloves on Chickens!!

Yahoo! News - Senator Wants Boxing Gloves on Chickens: "State Sen. Frank Shurden,(of Oaklahoma state) a longtime defender of cockfighting, is suggesting that roosters be given little boxing gloves so they can fight without bloodshed. The proposal is in a bill the Democrat has introduced for the legislative session that begins Feb. 7.... Gamecocks would wear sparring muffs, which are padded gloves placed over their natural spurs."

uh...okay? not sure I understand how your good tax money is going to pay for this...padded gloves for game cocks?

Ok, yeah, that's just stupid. I've been to cockfights in Mexico (and one time here in downtown...but actually it was these 2 gays who fought over who had the biggest dick, but thats a whole other story for a different time!) and theres no way a rooster could wear a glove! They dont fight with their claws, they fight with their beaks! Im fustrated!
