This is hilarious. Looking at some of the rangers here at Yosemite National Park, they might actually benefit from a mating program.
Thanks, Kit, for bringing some levity into my day.

Yes, this will indeed be the subject of the next 700 Club an example of the moral decay of America and how our society is falling deeper and deeper into.....

Ah, what the heck. I never much liked Robertson anyway.

I am not amused at all. Rangers deserve our respect. They do a very dangerous job and government cut backs have made them short handed.

Aw, come on, Betsy. Life is too hard not to be able to laugh at ourselves and at life in general. I'm sure there's no one here that doesn't respect rangers. One of my dad's best friends was a ranger in Yellowstone and he would have thought it was funny.

If you didn't get a star from me then I couldn't send one - or your name is LIndsay and I will be putting a stamp on your forehead when I mail you to Pat Robertson and the 700 club. Poor dear Lindsey's lack of sensitivity was not offended, she was having a bit of fun....of course I will report her post haste anyway,

The reason I try to make it CLEAR that this is from the ONION news and just for fun is so that people will not be offended. Laugh and the world laughs with you.

That would be exceptionally cruel to mail anyone to Pat Robertson, Kit. Care2 is supposed to be a kinder, gentler place. Shame on you.

Chana. Pl ease - it's Lindsey feel sorry for that old reprobate Robertson for what Lindsey will do to what is left of his mind. Lindsey's incisive intellect and logic against Roberson's doddering meanderings of just how god chooses to like one group and dislike another.

I thought the title was a blunder and chuckled.But after reading it....very clever. Funny.
No one's going to belittle the rangers,it appears they're having some fun with it themselves !
Naughty...naughty Stan B. Recruiting has closed....

Lovely idea! And hey if it works we all know we need more rangers right???? LOL! Kit, thank you for some light-heartedness in this nasty, despicable mess of humanity ...always doing something gruesome to someone or something! The onion news is the best! YAY for the onion!

Hey, a former Park Ranger I have to say...
first, the plan is flawed. The female population in the environmental/Parks community greatly outnumbers the male population by about 4:1. That is a very conservative estimate.
Secondly, they should double the pay if they want to increase the population.
and Third, the Parks stinks at finding mates. I had to go out and find my own. The males they bring in are less than acceptable. They don't make much money.

Jill, - shut-up and mate already. Can't you see this is for the future of the parks and the Rangers?
