BUT THEY SURE CAN’T TAKE IT. I mean, by their lights, they should just lie there and take it — like a dead fish. (Oh, Lord, forgive me!) But instead of accepting done unto them as they have done unto others, they’re whining to Mommy like a bunch of little titty babies.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of despicable (barely) human beings.
And, by the way, if you are concerned about animal welfare and the prevention of cruelty to animals, the ASPCA is a worthy organization. Also worthy of your consideration and support are local rescue organizations and no-kill shelters — true American volunteerism at its best. But PETA and the United States Humane Society are hypocritical marxist front organizations with no real concern for animals in their strategic missions or their tactics. Just thought you should know.
