The Grassy LOL (i.e. the Vast Chicken Wing Conspiracy)
Honestly, the title has little to do with this post. But I thought of it and I couldn’t NOT write it.
When I first saw posters for the Grass Fed Party in NYC, I got excited, because I thought I was going to be going to a big beef-eating jamboree. Then I went to their website and got even more excited because I realized it was a political party. From the preamble to their party platform:
The Grass-fed Party believes that it is time in America for a revival of traditional ranching practices to help the smaller communities thrive, to help preserve and enrich range lands, and to help cows eat according to their natural diets while giving them access to clean air and water.
Of course, like any third party, they already have a slightly kooky leader, a rancher from Montana. But as the old saying goes, you can tell a man’s character by the way he treats his beef.
How serious are they? Well, they regularly update their blog, have a weekly drawing for four strip steaks, and have an online action center. Unfortunately they also seem to heavily promote their leader’s own meat products, with a link to his online store. But then again, you can buy Obama beanies on Obama’s site, right?
