Here's a new idea that's bound to fill the laps of the 125th Armchair Battalion with puddles of reeking yellow drool: Web-based hunting.
A controversial Web site...offers target practice with a .22 caliber rifle and could soon let hunters shoot at deer, antelope and wild pigs, site creator John Underwood said on Tuesday.
He said an attendant would retrieve shot animals for the shooters, who could have the heads preserved by a taxidermist.
Previously, I'd thought that shooting tethered or confined animals at trophy ranches was about as pointless and morally bankrupt as bloodsports could get. Nothing else, I assumed, was likely to match that remarkable combination of cowardice, laziness, and brutality. I stand corrected!
The real question is, can we set something like this up in Fallujah or Mosul, so that America's fearless Keyboard Kommandos can help clean house in Iraq?
