    Guinea has forbidden the sale and consumption of bats and warned against eating rats and monkeys as the country combats a spread of Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever with a mortality rate of as much as 90 percent.“We discovered the vector agent of the Ebola virus is the bat,†said Remy Lamah, the country’s health minister, in an interview from the town of N’zerekore today. “We sent messages everywhere to announce the ban. People must even avoid consumption of rats and monkeys. They are very dangerous animals.â€

    Not just that, but bats are the last insect-killing animal they should be eating. They should be breeding bats and dragonflies to kill off the mosquitoes that perpetuate the malaria epidemic.

    At first glance I thought your post read "Guineas ban eating" thought it was going to be an article about trying to keep their wives from becoming fat fucks.

    That's exactly what it is. Has nothing to do with NEW Guinea, it's about Italians.

    ...or Guinea Bissau or just plain Guinea. There are three countries in Africa bearing the "guinea" in their name. :grad:

    Good God. This is not what they meant by diversity being a good thing.

    Unlike you and Howard, I don't watch SNL, so if you're going to insult me you need to use less gay references.
