It was pretty big, too :shock:


Ah, that reminds me of the time I saw a guy walking a pony on a leash through the Texas Tech campus. I was thinking "This needs to become a new Texas stereotype"

In Japan you can even *rent* pets. (random link)
But then again, I've seen weirder stuff and can't be surprised so easily anymore

So, no cat and dogs in any menu? I hope so, poor animals.

Why is cat and dog worse than cow or pig? Or chicken?

Personally, I wouldn't want to eat a cat, but I don't think I'd mind dog.

I'm a level 5 vegan. I don't eat anything that casts a shadow. :D

So you don't eat anything? Or do you just eat it in very well-lit environments? :P

The exact opposite works as well. No shadows are cast in total darkness.

Also, I guess he could half eat light permeable foods like gelatin. Or he could just blend everything up and drink for nutrition

It gets worse. I'm a Simpsons fan (albeit not a huge one) and I didn't know that one either. >.>
