Was holiday travel a bitch for you this year? It was for me. In fact, the only thing (besides a stiff drink) that helped me endure my joke of a JetBlue flight out of JFK was the on-board entertainment system. Specifically: Animal Planet. I bring this up for two reasons. The first: 2 hours into my six-hour marathon watching the network, I noticed that many other females on the flight were tuned to the same channel. The second (smaller) reason: Some confusion in the comments of yesterday's post about zoos with regards to my stance on the channel. (For the record, I also like polar bear pajamas; I was just making a point about the dual fetishization of/cruelty to animals in America.) Anyway, last night, Wonkette waterboarder Megan Carpentier and I spent an hour IM'ing about our addiction to the cable channel's hunky heroes (Jeff Corwin, specifically), animal abuser revenge fantasies, and the now-legendary Puppy Bowl. Our conversation, after the jump.
