WASHINGTON -- On a patch of pavement outside the Canadian Embassy, Jay McGinley is trying to starve himself to death.
After drinking nothing but water for more than 30 days, he appears close to achieving his goal. When he stands up, his dark blue sweater hangs from a wasted frame.

I think I've got some Wendy's buy-one/get-one-free coupons if you want them. ;)
... you’ll find he’s been “going hungry” for years for different causes.
This time of year, when things are getting warmer, his dying words will be "See, I told you so".
“Natural selection” at its best!
Hunger striking for Darfur in 2007
Well, when he is dead, he will have reduced his carbon foot print.
Warmer weather would open up vast agricultural lands. A longer growing season would see more diverse crops, and isn't diversity what its all about?
Canadians should be burning all the energy they can, we've got a lot of it.
I can remember back in my undergrad days there used to be some local activist loon (Vince Irene) who would protest defense contracts at my university. He had no affiliation with the university at all (ran a homeless shelter in town -Pittsburgh).
One time he decided to run a hunger strike on campus in front of one of the academic halls. The campus, in general, was not overly sympathetic to the loon. The college republicans held a cookout in close proximity to where he was holding his strike, and the fraternities pissed off all the local pizza places by placing delivery orders in his name (doubt he appreciated having the pizzas delivered either).
I wanted to choke this idiot but he’s doing me a favor. Morons shouldn’t breathe nor breed. We have tons of them and they’re called libtards’.
We should start a dead pool ... $10 buys you a date and time this boob drops dead. Shouldn’t let this “crisis” go to waste.
He has pulled this same stunt previously and didn’t kill himself.
Good, let the f*ck die.I second it.
Maybe we should chip in and give him a free gumball and a coupon for a free meal at Bennigan’s (with the purchase of a meal of equal or greater value, of course).
If global warming exists, it would be great for Canada. Warmer weather would open up vast agricultural lands.And as Freeman Dyson points out, true Global Warming would lead to a return of a Wet Sahara, which would be an incalculable benefit to the world.
Na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, hey heyyy - goodbye.
I guess it would be too much to expect somebody to kill himself over something real?
So, who is supplying the financial support for this clown? One look shows he is definitely not a producer but a leach parasite on society.
So, is he like this guy?
From the song JUNK FOOD JUNKIE
Oh, folks but lately I hae been spotted
With a Big Mac on my breath
Stumbling into a Colonel Sanders
With a face as white as death
I’m aftraid someday they’ll find me
Just stretched out on my bed
With a handful of Pringles potato chips
And a Ding Dong by my head
In the daytime I’m Mr Natural
Just as healthy as I can be
But at night I’m a junk food junkie
Good lord have pity on me
Personally, if the idiot starves to death, it's one less idiot at the polls. Maybe less painful than setting oneself on fire (also self-limiting behavior), but far more boring.
