Spike, I am quite sure that what Damien found hilarious was not the
fact that animals enjoy gay sex-play, but rather the fact that various
religious leaders had such an insane reaction to the museum display
with this theme...

I mean ...

 A Lutheran priest said he hoped the organisers
would "burn in hell," and a Pentecostal priest
lashed out at the exhibition saying tax payers'
money used for it would have been better spent
helping the animals correct "their perversions and deviances".

Uhhhh ... I don't want these people contributing to the Coherent
Extrapolated Volition!!!!!
