From Metro.co.uk: “Controversy erupts after tired llamas get into taxi

Llamas may be great at walking but they’re also not too cheap to jump into a cab when they need one.

Not everyone is happy a pair of them got a taxi in Peruvian capital Lima.

It was not because they didn’t think the tourist-carrying animals deserved a break. They actually thought the llamas were being abused.

No, it isn’t abuse to make llamas ride in a Peruvian taxi.
Had it been a New York City taxi, however …

Llama Trivia:

The Spanish word llama is perhaps the most mispronounced Spanish word.
In the Spanish language, the “LL” letter combination is pronounced like a “Y”.
That is why the Spanish word tortilla is pronounced “tore-tee-ya” instead of “tore-tee-la”.
Likewise, the correct pronunciation of llama is “ya-ma” not “la-ma”.

    So….

    This week the U of Michigan banned a screening of American Sniper because it might upset the poor sensitive college students and scheduled Paddington instead.

    This week Rand Paul officially declared his candidacy for President

    This week a House committee demands emails between the director of the EPA and the League of Conservation Voters regarding opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline and apparent lying to congress about the existance of those communications.

    The Dept of Education’s office of Civil Rights was implicated in the bogus Rolling Stone rape story hoax.

    The Boston Marathon bomber was found guilty on all charges.

    Yet Wizbang (let’s be honest, David) gives us, llamas in taxis, professional wrestlers pulling teeth with cars, and zombies.

    Can we call Wizbang dead as a blog about politics and current events from a conservative perspective?

    • My last two posts were prepared several days in advance, and I have been a bit to busy to respond to any breaking news.Also, I expected other writers for this blog to write about the serious stuff in case I didn’t.

      • jim_m

        True enough. It has been previously noted that there is a paucity of authors lately.

        • jim_m

          Nor do I object to the lighter articles. I just wanted to point out the dearth of the other type.

      Get your own blog if you don’t like this one.

      • Bruce, IMHO, you are being a bit too harsh on jim. He has come to expect this blog to contain a type of content unlike what I have offered during the last two days.

        • Brucehenry

          So what? So have I, but it’s only a couple of days. Lighten up I say.

        Hey bruce, fuck off.

    • WHO’S THE BUSTER

      Just how many “investigations” are currently being conducted by the House of Representatives?

      Maybe it should be renamed the House of Detectives.

        Part of the Constitutional duty of Congress is oversight of the Executive. What do you have against the Constitution?
