"I think to the general public, it does stand out as something they’ve never heard of or ever seen, and we’re here to tell them, that does go on. ... We’re trying to end it, and unfortunately, it goes on."

Brian Adams mentioned a kitten that recently had been burned in a microwave, as well as dogs that had been shot, hanged, or attacked with chain saws.

What the heck is going on there?

Was it on “delicate” or “wash and wear”?

Sorry... that really hit my funny bone!

There's nothing funny about this. The heartless little b*st*rds who did it should be shoved in a washing machine themselves, or, better yet, a microwave. What they did was sick beyond belief.

Uh, it’s Massachusetts. Hardcore lefty country. It’s what they’d like to do to conservatives, so first they practice on someone’s pet in order to get it down pat.

That would tell me it’s somebody who might be testing something out. They might have an emotion to people or animals, and they might be testing how to take that emotion out, but testing on animals first,

Talk about reading into things. They just might be a bunch of drunk 20 somethings. Duh. I know someone whose live parakeet was swallowed at a party....young, stupid and drunk at an underage party don't go well together.

Not really, except to try and make clear one more time what it is I meant to write.........

You still have many lessons to learn, grasshopper.

Now, if you're still confused about what I meant, then I suspect that confusion is simply a way of life for you.

No, no, no. You don’t put Yorkies in the washing machine.

You dry clean ’em. Too easy to snarl the coat otherwise.

From Wikipedia detailing the 70's drama series Kung Fu............

The frequent use of flashbacks is used to recall specific lessons during Caine's training in the monastery while a child (Rad Pera) by his teachers, the blind Master Po (Keye Luke) and Master Kan (Philip Ahn). Part of the appeal of the series was undoubtedly the emphasis laid, via the flashbacks, on the mental and spiritual power that Caine had gained from his rigorous training. In these flashbacks, Master Po calls his young student "Grasshopper" in reference to their first meeting in which young Caine said that to be blind must be the worst affliction. Master Po drew attention to a grasshopper at his feet which the blind master could hear but to which Caine had been oblivious, showing the pupil how much he still had to learn.

No, seriously, there are some people out there who are too stupid to be allowed to drink.

Anyone who has loved and been loved by these wonderful creatures the Lord has created and given us the knowledge to domesticate should be outraged by this story.

This is not funny, even in a slapstick way.

People who treat animals this way, even when drunk, should not be allowed to lead or employ human beings in any way, public or private. They would treat humans the same way one way or another.

Only a demented person would think such a thing is funny. They’d be the type who would laugh seeing an elderly person slip and fall on an icy sidewalk.

Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.

Shame on the ones who did this, and nothing funny about it at all. They should be punished severely for such a sick act against a helpless creature.

Best Regards,

“No, seriously, there are some people out there who are too stupid to be allowed to drink.”


Ah. Where to begin?

Too Stupid To Be Allowed To:

Drink (as you said),
Drive,
Have children, (please, God forbid)
Have pets (again, please, God forbid)...

VOTE (OH, PLEASE, GOD FORBID!)

Own an oven,
Own a microwave oven,
Own a ‘fridge,
Own a cucumber to go in it,
Own a washing machine,
Own air,
Own a clothes dryer...

Never mind. The list could go on forever.

Just too stupid to “be” in my opinion. Or, rather, too cruel to be left hanging around to the harm of others.

Best Regards,

BR

Maybe you're right. Next time I come across a car wreck or a house fire, I'll try to find something funny about it.
