We Usually don't get into the dope arena, for obvious reasons. but this story made us reach back and remember the story seeking a solution for the opium poppy problem.
Wallabies - it's as simple as importing a few herds of Wallabies and turnin em loose in afghanistan. in no time the taliban will be clarkes employees. (clarkes shoes that is) the wallabies are so cute. basically they're large hamsters that sit on their back legs; hop around and look adorable.
kangaroos are more fierce than wallabies from what we've read; so the wallabies and a few kangaroos could probably make a difference in a few weeks, in a poppy region. then bring in some sheep, as they were there traditionally. supposedly they also do the same thing.
the animals are grazers, and they can be useful to the families who own the land; probably in as many ways as the opium poppies they will give up in the trade. could you shoot one of these cute cuddly milk makers ?
the question is if you are a poppy grower, would you trade your poppy fields, for a big herd of llamas, goats and wallabies; that can roam that same pasture and not bring the same bloodshed. But instead bring you money still over and over without the danger or bad karma ? that's gotta be more acceptable to Allah, don't you think ?
We think that this drug problem needs to be put in just these simple terms.
you cannot pass down a poppy field, but you can pass down a goat or a wallabie. dowry's are often paid traditionally with farm animals in muslim countries; for just this reason.
I think america needs to get with the tasmanians', the afghans and the aussies and get a contingent of sheep, border collies, wallabies and wallabie keepers brought in to naturalize. near the poppy fields they'd probably be seen as a novelty and be easier to milk and shear than a guy with an ak 47.
I'd personally hope that they might bring goats, and maybe some Llamas, to add to the mix for the sake of variety. no doubt the llamas and goats would eat some of the poppies too, producing some banging milk and wool.
our friends over at Splitrock Ranch can attest to the greatness of Llamas. they are the finest wool, and pack animals. we hear that they are even the most evenly tempered; so little to no spitting and fighting, unlike now.. they do have personalities and get their respect. they are afterall usually taller and larger than a man. so size alone makes them king.
the deal is this, the poppy fields seem to make animals sneak in; then they end up checkin the poppies out, finally walking in circles. yeah circles..
makes you wonder, if maybe the leaders who have been repeated sending folks there for generations to fight; aren't actually displaying the same symptoms ? have they been walking in those poppy fields, secretly ?
we aren't advocating anybody harm the wallabies; just thinking that maybe a buncha herding cute animals; can do more to change the region than a buncha men with guns; who've done nothing but kill each other.
at least the wallabies won't kill anybody. we also believe that the people won't want to kill the wallabies when their kids become attached to them, and regard them as friendly instead of another invading force.
so who do we call to set up the deal, Captain Kangaroo ? (sorry y'all cause we know he checked out a while ago) Jack Hannah ? or the big boss at the white house - Bo Obama ?
Who ever it is - somebody Holla @ Em Quick because america is rampin up in the afghan region massively. we need to try to come up with a cost effective, natural and positive remedy to this bloodshed. so ours is Wallabies, Llamas, Goats and Kangaroos.
we think the animals know more than we do, so we bes be lettin them sort out this mess, since we have failed miserably up to this point.
Holla @ Us if You Down Wit the Wallabies, Sheep, Goats and Llamas; for Peace in Afghanistan

'Stoned wallabies make crop circles'
Wallabies have been observed acting strangely in poppy fields
Australian wallabies are eating opium poppies and creating crop circles as they hop around "as high as a kite", a government official has said.
Lara Giddings, the attorney general for the island state of Tasmania, said the kangaroo-like marsupials were getting into poppy fields grown for medicine.
She was reporting to a parliamentary hearing on security for poppy crops.
Australia supplies about 50% of the world's legally-grown opium used to make morphine and other painkillers.
We have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles. Then they crash
Lara Giddings, government official
"Then they crash," she added. "We see crop circles in the poppy industry from wallabies that are high."
Rick Rockliff, a spokesman for poppy producer Tasmanian Alkaloids, said the wallaby incursions were not very common, but other animals had also been spotted in the poppy fields acting unusually.
"There have been many stories about sheep that have eaten some of the poppies after harvesting and they all walk around in circles," he added.
Retired Tasmanian poppy farmer Lyndley Chopping also said he had seen strange behaviour from wallabies in his fields.
"They would just come and eat some poppies and they would go away," he told ABC News.
"They'd come back again and they would do their circle work in the paddock."
Some people believe the mysterious circles that appear in fields in a number of countries are created by aliens. Others put them down to a human hoax.
