The Daily Show Was in Louisiana to Explore the World of Chicken Boxing [VIDEO]

Comedy Central’s The Daily Show was recently in Louisiana to do a segment on cockfighting. As we reported earlier this year, ever since the state banned cockfighting several years ago, some lawmakers have been fighting like hell to legalize a sport they call “chicken boxing.”

Of course, it seems there is very little difference between the foul blood sport and padded talon bouts of fisticuffs that some Louisiana lawmakers call family sport.

However, in this video segment, Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal attempt to get to the bottom of the cockfighting conundrum by interviewing Senator J.P. Morell, who believes chicken boxing is “stupid,” and Senator Elbert Guillory, a man who believes these clucky little beasts are “premier athletes.”

Watch and decide for yourself.
