Bewildered, Sickened, Horrified and Puzzled

Stupid Yoko Ono was part of a stunt at a London radio station yesterday in which gonzo artist Mark McGowan ate cooked pieces of a Corgi, Queen Elizabeth II's dog of choice.

What the fuck?!

McGowan staged the dog-eating stunt to protest the Queen's husband's treatment of a fox on a hunt last year. Uh, what?

While the artist did his best to swallow a few chunks, Yoko could only manage a small taste before looking "a bit strange," according to McGowan.

Performance artist McGowan is a rabid vegetarian and animal-rights activist who once notoriously ate a swan to protest the monarchy. He says that the Corgi had died at a breeding farm.

I dunno, bro. Sometimes the stunt eclipses the reason. All I know is you ate a dog. I don't see what you've proven or what changes you've made. Have you raised awareness about the issue at hand ? Does the end justify the means? I'm torn, but I'm leaning towards thinking this dude is just a douche.

This is from McGowan's website:

In an extraordinary art event artist and animal rights activist Mark McGowan is to eat a Corgi dog live on the Radio on Tuesday 29th May 2007, in a protest against the Royals and their treatment of animals. The dog died recently at a Corgi breeding farm in Southern England and will be prepared and cooked for McGowan's consumption on the Bob and Roberta Smith radio programme on 104.4 Resonance FM at 9pm in the evening.

McGowan says, "I know some people will find this offensive and tasteless but I am doing this to raise awarness about the RSPCA's inability to prosecute Prince Phillip and his friends shooting a fox earlier this year, letting it struggle for life for 5 minutes and then beating it to death with a stick."
Rabid vegetarians don't eat swans and dogs. Oh, and what the fuck was Yoko doing there?!
