Undeniable Fact: A Puppy Saved...

Saturday, September 23, 2006

The first ever documented case of animal cruelty in America was reported in 1764. The culprit? You guessed it: Benjamin Franklin. Franklin, it seems, invented the sport of Puppy Slander. This barbaric practice continued for centuries after the portly rapscallion's death, and was only recently criminalized by the Animal Dignity Protection Act. The ADPA, incidentally, does not protect stray or crippled animals; a last vestige of Franklin's culture of cruelty.

Puppies actually have a very complex emotional system. They can certianly tell when you are talking about them in a bad way.

Oh, and the talking that was made! Why, Washington himself participated in this heinous act. The puppy involved lost his home and his kids. And got neutered. And you know how bad neutering would've been in the late 1700's.
