run into this quote and I thought it is pretty funny:
Here is a quote from an email form a Marsee Products representitive from 09/07/2004: "Yes they are leather. We wanted to make them out of lettuce but all the vegetarians complained. Then we thought how about paper, but that comes from wood and Green Peace, would have complained. Then we said “What the hell, this old dead cow can’t complain.” So we made them out of leather. Perhaps when I die they’ll tan my hide and make me into a nice pair of racing gloves, and I’ll live on, all though it may be for but a short while! Everything must live and die and everything must be recycled in order to save the earth, better to be a glove than to rot in the ground."
