Horny manatees help save real manatees

Horny Manatee SchoolgirlCharitable giving just got funnier. Adding an altruistic spin to their HornyManatee.com gag, Late Night with Conan O'Brien is donating $5 from the sale of every Horny Manatee t-shirt to the Save the Manatee Club, champion to sea cows everywhere.

Having spent much of my youth in Florida, I can tell you that the poor manatee has been a glorified motorboat speedbump for years. It's a sad state of affairs for our gentle warm water friend. Groups like Save the Manatee educate boaters and swimmers on proper human-manatee interaction - don't touch; don't ride; watch from a distance. Ummm... I'd say all those rules are pretty much violated by Horny Manatee fans, but that's alright. If non-profit organizations knew that you could raise money by dressing up in a furry costume and humping a bedpost, they wouldn't have wasted all that time begging the government for money.

It's a joke! Have none of you ever heard of a joke? It's funny. Get that? F-U-N-N-Y...funny! Sure they're selling t-shirts and making a profit, but who is not out to make a profit in this world? Do any of you have jobs, a house, a car? How do you pay for these things? With MONEY! Comedy is a way to make money, so get over it.

FYI the Save The Manatee folks aren't all do-gooders. A large coalition of wealthy waterfront property owners have banded together to further restrict water access to boaters. The reason has far less to do with helping manatees than it does wanting to keep the noise-level of the boats down. They use the manatees (which are not native to Florida) as a way to gain public sympathy while keeping their $$$ mansions serene.
