Well, brilliant. I've turned into one of those awful balls of embarrassment who get morally outraged by something they see in the news. I feel an idiot but luckily we've already established that I'm "thick" so I don't even care how embarrassing I come across.
AA Gill, the Times' restaurant critic and cunt, shot and killed a baboon just to see what it would be like. That was his actual excuse for murdering a baboon. "'I wanted to get a sense of what it might be like to kill someone". Christ almighty, what sort of lack of imagination does this cretin suffer from. Strangely, I've never wanted to even consider killing a baboon but I have a good idea of exactly how I'd feel. That's one of the things that stops me from doing it. We call that having empathy. It's one of the better traits that the rest of our species has.
"'I wanted to get a sense of what it might be like to kill someone". What the fuck are you, AA? Some sort of monkey-hating Johnny Cash? I killed a baboon in Tanzania just to watch him die. Not only that but doesn't this cockboil of a man still have to face his family and friends who now know that he has said the words "'I wanted to get a sense of what it might be like to kill someone". I imagine that quite a few people in AA's address book are going to stop returning his calls. You know, except for the one were they call him to say "I don't want to see you ever again because you are a creepy, creepy bastard. Bye".
The baboon was far away from him. Wasn't bothering him. And it certainly had no way to defend itself against a deranged psychopath with a gun who then described it's murder as "naughty fun". I don't know about you, but I'm really not in AA Gill's gang. He doesn't sound like one of us. At all.
He's a food critic, of course, so I'm sure a few evil carnivores (they're all evil, by the way. And, no, Hitler WASN'T a vegetarian, he was a meat eating Christian just like you) might consider that he at least killed the baboon to eat it. No. No, he didn't. I don't know if I told you but he said that the reason that he shot a totally defenceless animal to death was because he "wanted to get a sense of what it might be like to kill someone". He didn't cook it afterwards. He didn't eat it. No-one did. Baboons aren't "tasty" apparently. Stupid undelicious monkeys. That's the irony right there. Killing a baboon is nothing like killing a "someone" as AA Gill wanted. A "someone" could at least try to defend itself, maybe even tackle him and turn the weapon on him, and of course "someone" tastes of chicken. You could at least eat "someone".
What a pointless, half-man he truly is. Killing for no reason for a hobby and telling people whether or not he liked his dinner for a living.
Sometimes it's as if AA didn't actually read my blog yesterday. If only he had seen the beauty of two wasps fucking then maybe he could see that nature is there for us to be in awe of and not to destroy just because we're rich, bored and no-one will fuck us.
I don't like AA Gill. I feel closer to the baboon than a man like him. To be honest, I feel closer to a dung beetle than I do to that....whatever the fuck he is. Jan Moir, you are temporarily off the hook.
