Visit Conny-Land

Alright folks, instead of the usual chicken run, I was thinking to visit Conny-Land...let's make this a fun-filled family event with grandpa and the children....on the way up, we could also visit Affenberg, where you get the chance to feed popcorn to monkeys.

Anybody up for it?

Re: Visit Conny-Land

Ok, before the self-righteous crowd gets a hold of this thread, I'd like to say, that it certainly is a piss-taking. On a more serious note, I'm totally against animal cruelty. By boycotting Conny-Land, you will probably help the mistreatment of animals, as the less revenue they make, the smaller their budget is for caretaking, food etc. Therefore, instead on pouting and calling for a boycott, why don't you take real action and write a letter to the authority which is responsible for animal wellfare. Your simplistic action will do the animal no good, nor will it benefit the local economy.....and just by the way, if you really feel upset about flipper being gone, I'm sure this will be devasating news to you. http://library.thinkquest.org/C00229...sent/stats.htm

I'm confused. With the reference to KFC at the beginning, I sort of assumed we were going out for Dolphin burgers...?

One shouldn't play with food, I find all these dolphin shows quite sickening. What's next, pig races?

Seeing as we're in Switzerland, what about Horse Racing?

While the idea may be strange, I think it is time to show solidarity with Connieland. The problem rather is that it is not much fun at present.

Dolphin shows are NOT "plays with food". And their WEBsite info about their restaurant http://www.connyland.ch/en/attractions/restaurant.html looks quite nice.

Along comes Wolli with another sense of humour failure

Re: Visit Conny-Land

Badger baiting?

Badger 1: You're a muppet
Badger 2: Your fur stinks

Badger 1: Your mom flirted with a marten
Badger 2: Your sister mated with my cousin's chinchilla

Etc.
