Say No to Sharksfin Soup

Hey Guys

I'm here to talk about something that is very near and dear to me. Something that I am completely humourless about. Every year, millions of sharks are caught, finned and hten tossed back into the sea to supply the demand for the Sharks Fin Soup. Unfortunately, due to a combination of issues such as pollution, trawl fishing adn the sharks fin industry, the number of sharks in the wild have reduced to near extinction and because of the long time it takes for a shark to mature and the low number of offspring they bear in a clutch it is becoming extremely difficult for sharks to increase their populations in the wild fast enough to contend with these threats.

Now, I'm going to take a big leap of faith here, and at the risk of coming of cheesy or naggish about my animal rights activism I'm just going to take a leaf out of Pam Anderson's lettuce bikini (also who can forget her controversial ad in Montreal?) and say that we've already caused the extinction of so many species, let not the blood of another animal stain our Human hands. This Chinese New Year, I believe we can take a cheaper, more human alternative - artificial, crab-meat based Sharks Fin Soup! This Chinese New Year, have a heart...
