Capybara for Lent

It's hard for me as a vegetarian to take Lenten fasting very seriously, in part because of the slippery workarounds the church provides: if you feel terribly deprived by being unable to eat red meat on Fridays for a few weeks, you can always eat a capybara, a mammal that the church has deemed "fish". And it's not just capybaras ... as this First Thoughts post cheerfully gloats, you can also eat muskrats, and beavers, and alligators as well. Urp!

If you rather learn more about capybaras instead of eating them ...

Noooooo! Not my Capybaras! Too adorable to eat, and just look at how classy the dress up!
