Step Away from the Grapes!

Ya wanna live longer - start drinking. A recent study shows that those who are heavy drinkers have a lower mortality rate than those not participating in the alcohol show. I personally think baboons feel the same way and it's totally catching on with their species.

Leave kittens in the dumpster and you will hear it on the news. Poor kitty kitty's... but really, isn't there something more newsworthy out there to report on? Shock over aborted babies is so yesterday. Let's just say, the most you will hear in the news about abortions will be something about a woman's right over her body.

It appears that somewhere along the lines of history we switched places with the animals. I thought we were supposed to be evolving!! Isn't that going backwards instead of forwards? Awe and reverence to animals is not uncommon in some cultures and it should not surprise us to see car seats for dogs and diamond collars for cats. Those following Hinduism figured that out a long while ago. Perhaps we're just behind and are finally catching up, figuring things out- slowly. 

Back to the Baboons in South Africa. At one point someone came up with a novel idea- let's not kill the monkeys, they're too cute!! And laws were made, and so on and so forth. Today, people are experiencing the fruits of that decision. The cuties are now roaming the streets drunk after raiding South African Vineyards. Awww, that's so adorable! And it get's better. They're also invading houses, killing chickens and dogs, ruining people's gardens, and just making a mess of things. Now, it sounds like there's a baseball rule applied. Annoy me once, annoy me twice, annoy me three times, and that suckah is out. Yay. 

And that's Emily reporting to you live from Sk- Washington


  1. I was looking for the "like" button.. great post!!

  2. That's all I needed to hear to start up with the beers! Hehe, I think they should make a movie called, "Night of the Living Baboons." It would be a big hit.

  3. Really? That's very interesting, to bad I can't "legally" drink for another 6 years. ;)

    Oh that's such a shame that the news is so corrupt that they would rather write about cats in dumpsters verses the millions of babies that die every year from abortions.

    Wow, I never thought monkeys could be so destructive. Good thing we don't have them roaming around freely around here.

  4. Good point... Abortion is an ironic tragedy we live with.

  5. UGH!!! Primates! :P

    Now, wine.... ;)
