Sen. Elbert Guillory’s effort to legalize chicken boxing during this year’s legislative session didn’t pass muster with his fellow lawmakers, but he’s not through fighting for the sport as he brought his message Wednesday to Comedy Central’s Daily Show.

“I’m not a fan of cockfighting, but I’d love to go and watch some chicken boxing,” Guillory (R-Opelousas) told Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal. “It’s still not legal, but we’re fighting to make it legal. They get the best food, best medical care, their trainers give them massages. If human beings can put gloves on and box, chickens can put on gloves and box too.”

We’re not sure if Guillory understands the show’s concept, making the segment all the more worth watching.
