Well, this week we have delved into a lot of non football topics. Tuesday we touched on the touchy Tim Tebow Super Bowl Advertisement mountain of a molehill controversy. Yesterday we touched on men’s fashion and felonies. Today we will delve into everyone’s favorite topic: PETA.
PETA is a bunch of egnoramooses; although that is talking bad about a moose, so they probably wouldn’t like that.
The reason this is relevant is because we have seen this before. PETA came out after Uga VII passed away and called for a robotic dog. Now the organization that wants you donate money to save the animals in Haiti (forget the women, children and all the orphans down there) wants to have the Groundhog Day groundhog be robotic.
Much like with the Ugas, the groundhog in Punxsutawney is probably treated better than most. William Deeley, president of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, said the groundhog “being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania.” According to the story, Punxsutawney Phil is kept in a climate controlled room and inspected by the state’s Department of Agriculture annually.
The animal has adequate food, shelter, warmth and health inspections. That is a whole hell of a lot more than most people-most children, even-receive. My wife works in education and you should hear some of the stories of her students. It will rip your heart out.
Most importantly though, this groundhog and our bulldog have people who not only treat them right physical, but love them unconditionally and care for their emotional needs. That is more than a lot of children can say.
PETA, shut up.
Go Dawgs (no matter what PETA says)!
