Beating around the bush

Or, rather, around the whole garden - the carrot patch, the celery tree (or wherever that disgusting stuff grows), the broccoli, the cucumber... you know what I mean.

Just look how inventive the humans are in shifting the blame:

Norway's Moose Population in Trouble for Belching
The poor old Scandinavian moose is now being blamed for climate change, with researchers in Norway claiming that a grown moose can produce 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year -- equivalent to the CO2 output resulting from a 13,000 kilometer car journey.

Norway has some 120,000 moose but an estimated 35,000 are expected to be killed in this year's moose hunting season, which starts on September 25, Norwegian newspaper VG reported.
So it is 120,000 moose who are causing the climate change, what? While 2 billion (or more) absolutely unfettered human vegetarians roam their gardens and all kinds of nature stores, producing uncounted kilos of gases via their incessant belching (well, this is how it is euphemistically called in the article).

No, I am not offering to issue hunting licenses for vegetarians, so pipe down, please. Although, upon second thought, the militant ones could do with... OK, let's leave it alone for the HQ to consider. What I have in mind is enforced re-education and strict meat, eggs and fish diet for the rest of their lives. Call it perennial country breakfast, if you will...

And leave these folks alone, you hear? Or else.
