Quotes: What Measure Is a Non-Cute?
"You'd almost feel bad about killing them if they weren't so damn ugly."
Mike Rowe, of Dirty Jobs, on barnacles, of all things

"If God had wanted us to be concerned for the plight of the toads, he would have made them cute and furry."

"I can't believe the arbitrary way that humans decide which animals to revere and which to eat. It's nothing more than a barbaric popularity contest. Take the koala bear: cute and cuddly. Have you ever heard of a koala burger? A koala dog? Koala falafel? No! The noble cow, whose only sins are her pendulous teats and redundant stomachs, is doomed to be sawed into freezer-friendly chunks and sold by the pound to the bloodthirsty masses!"
Dick Solomon of 3rd Rock from the Sun, in the episode in which he becomes obsessed with animal rights

"Hey, it's not my fault wolves eat cute little animals like bunnies and sheep and pigs. That's just the way we are. If cheeseburgers were cute, folks would probably think you were Big and Bad too."
Alexander T. Wolf, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs

"It's nice to know that mice are no longer considered vermin."

"We weep for the blood of a bird, but not for the blood of a fish. Blessed are those who have voice."
