Animal Newz

Sometimes you naked apes have good ideas. And other times you have bad ones. Mostly bad ones. Here are two stories from this week about naked apes and the animal kingdom. And I will leave it to you to decide who is at the top of the evolutionary scale.

From CNN, here's a story about how the British Kennel Club is overhauling their breed standards to ensure better health for the dog-a-boos, especially the English Boo-dog who has been bred to have such exaggeratedly large heads that they can't give vaginal birth and their wrinkles are so bad they can't breathe. Gosh, setting standards on health rather than impossible and dangerous aesthetic standards? Preposterous! Now, when can we get around to doing the same for naked ape ladies?

Story #2 is about the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals who have decided to launch a campaign to rename fish SEA KITTENS. Ahem:

A lot of people don't realize that fish are capable of feeling fear and pain, that they develop relationships with each other, and even show affection by gently rubbing against one another," says Ashley Byrne, PETA's sea kitten campaign co-ordinator. "Knowing that the fish sticks in the school cafeteria are really made out of tortured sea kittens makes most kids want to lose their lunch."

While the depletion of fish in the world is a serious problem, PETA has once again managed to minimize a serious problem in a shameless orgy of self-promotion. Well done! On a stupid scale from Dubya to Lobotomized Squirrel, I give this a Sarah Palin!

And had I known I was eating goddamn cats, er, goddamn sea kittens, all along I would have enjoyed it much more. NOM NOM!

Fish should be left to be named as fish,

This is what, if they were asked, they would wish.

They would not want to be named as kittens from the sea,

This is not appropriate and most un pee cee.

And as for British Bulldogs for instance..............

Leave them alone, let them always look like our dearest hero, Winston.

My poemic thoughts for what they are worth dear Wally.

I enjoy your erudite posts, they are most thought provoking.

Your friend, Marvin xxxxxxxxx

kisses to my looky likey Ethel and some to Oscar, hope he is behaving himself!!

sadly your word verification made me laugh tonight when I posted, it was "licas".

Most appropriate for a dog blog!!

The sea kittens is all the talk among us marine biologists and believe me we are all cracking up! Good catch wally, this is possibly one of the most stunning examples of naked ape stupidity! I am sure your ma saw when Colbert said he would now eat Land Fish and showed a picture of a kitten.

I like the British Kennel club because they don't allow all that cropping and docking. That's so mean and meaningless.

I say if its made of meat, I want to eat it, nom, nom.

Grammie says, "Moco, Mr.Common Sense died many years ago. He was hardly missed." She feels this is very sad. She cries for him often.
We will add your other ape-Thing from the Addam's family to our circle of healing vibes. We are not sure where the ticker is in his hand, but we believe all you say.

Dude, that's a pretty intense look there--are you imagining a tasty sea kitten? Or perhaps a tasty cardinal?! Or just red in anticipation of Valentine's Day and the celebration of healthy hearts?! :)
