Farting Dutch Pigs Take ‘Times’ Most E-mailed List


Question: “As More Eat Meat, a Bid to Cut Emissions” is on the Times most-emailed list … is it because (a) People are e-mailing it to friends who are concerned about this serious climate-change issue, or (b) It’s a hilarious story about a mass of farting, belching Dutch pigs? We choose (b), because we ourselves have snickered every time we’ve gone onto the Times homepage today. Look, we care about the environment and all, but if it’s wrong to laugh when the scientist says, “We haven’t come to grips with agricultural emissions,” then we don’t want to be right.
