Friday Media Filter 11.07.08: The animals are watching, the animals know

November 7th, 2008 · 14 Comments

Chill Dog

“Animals are my friends … and I don’t eat my friends”
-George W. Bush (or maybe George Bernard Shaw)

“Some scientists believe that dogs can see things quicker than us and that pigeons are in a different time zone so if this is possible i suppose anything is.”
-Some person on Yahoo Answers

Do the animals know something we don’t? Science will never know. But look at these pics to see for yourself …


“Would you believe some of the people? Would you believe our dog? Look, I want to give the high-five symbol to high tech.”
-George H.W. Bush, 1989


“Bears are not companions of men, but children of God, and His charity is broad enough for both … Bears are made of the same dust as we, and breathe the same winds and drink of the same waters. A bear’s days are warmed by the same sun, his dwellings are overdomed by the same blue sky, and his life turns and ebbs with heart-pulsings like ours and was poured from the same fountain.”
-John Muir, not able to shut up about bears

Fat dog

“A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, however selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.”
-The Ayatollah Khomeini, from the Tahrirolvasyleh

“If you don’t like the video, don’t comment saying you don’t like it or leave abuse. It’s a certain sense of humour which you may not understand. Thanks.”
-Some guy on YouTube

The Cosby attempts to speak with the animals …

    How can anyone not think the owl video is funny?

  • 5 Joel // Nov 7, 2008 at 12:54 pm

    @matt - looks like I’m employed again, so look for the funny factor to go down a bit

    @meredith - i ran across that quote randomly while looking up quotes for this post. I’m going to have to research our man Khomeini for the future …

    @Christian BC - the quote is actually from another video. but yeah, i don’t know how you couldn’t think that owl video is the shiz

    That guy on YouTube is totally right. That owls dancing video does contain some of the most heady, cerebral comedy I’ve ever seen, and if you don’t have a highly trained sense of humor, I can imagine that you just “wouldn’t get it.”

    To prevent your blogging quality to slide into lunch time observations and occasional musings done during “free time”, I have taken the necessary step of contacting any prospective employers in the Tuscon area and informed them that you are indeed an unrepentant rapist of children, both man and animal.

    I did it for all of us.

    I believe the word is “raper”.
