Episode 18: Zoos 2. Electric Boogaloo

Top of the show 

Welcome everyone and thank you for joining us. This is valid arguments. A show that’s fair and balanced, as all things should be. I’m Jeremy Horton, and Today were going to be talking about zoos, again. We’re calling it zoos 2: electric boogaloo! We will also be arguing about fitness, and spending time with your family. Joining me today is Mr. Milo Mordhorst on my right. (Milo intro). And Mr. Joel Barkley on my left. (Joel intro). Thank you both, now we’ll get into the questions but we should address that this is actually not an episode about zoos but rather animal extinction, and the various ways it takes place. 

Questions I will ask: 

  •  Let’s start today with a sentiment that I think everyone can relate to. Some species need to go extinct. The passenger pigeon was useless. It’s even sometimes necessary to introduce a non-indigenous species to control another species that’s not only being useless but hurting the environment. My first question is that is there a case to be made for hunting useless animals to extinction? jeremy 
  •  A lot of this argument centers around the extinction of animals. If there was no danger of these animals going extinct, it wouldn’t be illegal to hunt them. Now Pandas are dumb. So dumb that they will most likely go extinct without anyone hunting or selling them to rich folks. So, on the flip side of my last question, should we stop certain animals from going extinct that would otherwise do so? joel 
  • Palette cleanser/segment – Can people go to the gym without telling you about it
  •  You guys eat stuff, right? Ya me too. I bring it up because here in America we eat animals at a completely unsustainable rate. As far as exotic animals, we don’t. We hardly eat them at all. 2-part question here. Should we eat more endangered animals, and do they taste better? joel 
  •  This next question is a philosophical one and one that we here at Valid Arguments have debated time and time again. Are humans a part of nature? Therefore, rendering anything we do or any animal we make go extinct as a natural occurrence. milo 
  •  Palette cleanser/segment – which holiday is the worst? 
  •  I love elephants. I watched a video of an elephant yesterday where it painted a picture of an elephant with its trunk. It was so adorable. Anyway, my question is does ivory give you a boner? 
  •  Next up I think I have a pretty easy valid argument here. I’ve worn several fur coats and every time I am not disappointed. They’re warm, comfortable, and give you that feeling of superiority that only killing one of the last snow leopards can give you. With that, are fur coats super awesome? 
  •  Palette cleanser/segment –  
  • .How do we solve this thing?

summarize Joel and Milo end arguments* I think that both sides have………………Valid Arguments. Tonight’s winner had this to say. If anyone’s going to bring about mass extinction, it’ll be Donald Trump. Nikki Glaser, ladies and gentleman. If you are for the exotic animal trade then I suggest you move to a country with exotic animals and buy a high-powered rifle. If you want the senseless extinction of animals outlawed entirely, then I suggest you get in touch with the world wildlife fund and see how you can help out.  If you decide to do nothing, then at the very least, keep arguing and talking about it. Because the only way we solve any controversial issue, is to argue about it.
