Inhumane animal treatment at Market St. Safeway

March 8th, 2011

It’s come to my attention that the Safeway at Market and Church is treating their adorable “Phat Lamb” sheep in an inhumane manner. Sheep are stuffed into tiny space on shelves with no place to move, or worse, dangled from plastic chains.

Sheep are hipsters

January 23rd, 2011

Sheep Hipsters
Sheep More hipster action
Sheep wear wool sweaters naturally Hipsters wear wool sweaters ironically
Sheep follow each other Hipsters follow each other
Sheep have sheep dogs Hipsters have trendy dogs
Sheep eat a vegan, gluten-free diet Hipsters eat a vegan, gluten-free diet

Maybe these are all coincidences, you say. Maybe there’s nothing to this.

Well then here’s one last piece of evidence, courtesy of MissionMission contributor Ariel Dovas:
