PETA = Facepalm

PETA Wants Robot Groundhogs  (Courtesy of Yahoo News)

Oh PETA.  You sure do provide many good ideas……to laugh at.  Hot on the coattails of proposing human breast milk in Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and the renaming of “fish” to “sea kittens,” PETA chimes in with yet another zinger.  PETA would like to see a robotic groundhog replace good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil.  I assume this task would be handed out to SkyNet, as it is the only robotic menace capable of such evil.  Granted, many of us this year would like to skewer Phil for his prediction of another 6 weeks of this hell we call Winter, but that’s besides the point.

Of all the animals to be concerned with, why Phil?  The President of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, indicated Phil is “being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania.” The groundhog is kept in a climate-controlled environment and is inspected annually by the state Department of Agriculture.  Uh….I don’t think Phil is in any danger here.  PETA, please go spread your crazy sauce someplace else.  Or better yet…..just sit down, shut up, and leave us alone.  Stop trying to spout crazy ideas just to make yourself relevant.

Boy In Trouble for Bringing 2-Inch Toy Gun to School  (Courtesy of NYDailyNews.com)

No, not a typo.  A young boy (9) and his friend were playing with lego figures during lunch when one of them pulls out the small gun that came with his Police Officer lego figure.  He is promptly pulled out of his seat by the principal and nearly suspended.  After a meeting between the parents and the Principal, we’ll call her Miss Overreaction, the boy was spared any punishment and simply asked not to bring the toy back.  Incidentally, his friend had a toy axe to go with his figure but apparently that was as threatening.

People, I realize that we are in a scary time when kids are bringing guns and drugs into our schools.  But seriously, a 2-inch gun in the hands of a lego figure!?  REALLY!?  I simply can’t fathom what the hell Miss Overreaction was thinking.  All this brain trust had to do was ask the kids to put the toys away, or at least the weapons.  The mom was absolutely right.  This was a common-sense issue.  There’s no reason this needed to be blown out of proportion.
