In the Volokh Conspiracy thread on the failure of the EPA to “save” the spotted owl from its seemingly inevitable extinction, commenter Sarcastro said:
I say human [sic] become Darwin’s chainsaw, and try to wipe out as many life-forms as we can.
Those few worthies that remain will be awesome.
Now, he was being sarcastic (when he’s not, his statements are in brackets), but he’s got a point; those remaining species would be totally badass.
Probably just delicious, actually.
Runner-up, from that same thread, by commenter martyB:
All I know is, if you see a Spotted Owl on your property you have to kill it quick and bury it and hope no one else has seen it. The penalty for failing to do so is the loss of the use of your land. I have often wondered why the government hates the Spotted Owl so.
That would be funnier if it weren’t true. 😦
