is my current media pitch du jour, as he’s auctioning the chance to join him for a day of fishing and hunting at his Waco, Texas compound at charitybuzz to benefit St. Jude’s Childrens Reserach Hospital. Might be the most random thing I’ve pitched to date. Just found this gem while doing a little research….
Ted Nugent, rock star and avid bow hunter from Michigan, was being
interviewed by a French journalist and animal rights activist. The
discussion came around to deer hunting. The journalist asked, “What
do you think is the last thought in the head of a deer before you
shoot him? Is it, ‘Are you my friend?’ or is it ‘Are you the one
who killed my brother?’ “
Nugent replied, “Deer aren’t capable of that kind of thinking. All
they care about is, ‘What am I going to eat next, who am I going to
screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very
much like the French.’ “
The interview ended at that point.
