“I’ve seen it all.” That’s you when you woke up this morning. “I’ve seen it all, there’s nothing left to see that I haven’t seen. Ecclesiastes 1:9 — there’s nothing new under the sun. I always suspected that Bible quote was true and today I know for a fact that it is. Nothing to see here, just the same old garbage.” Oh yeah? OH YEAH, THAT’S WHAT YOU THINK? From The Huffington Post:
For the past two months, animal trainer Mark Vette has been teaching dogs to drive, New Zealand TV station Campbell Live reported. The lessons are part of a campaign by the New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), meant to clear up “common misconceptions” about rescue dogs.
“Sometimes people think because they’re getting an animal that’s been abandoned, that somehow it’s a second-class animal,” SPCA Auckland CEO Christine Kalin told the New Zealand Herald. “Driving a car actively demonstrates to potential rescue dog adopters that you can teach an old dog new tricks.”
“Meant to clear up ‘common misconceptions’ about rescue dogs, like that they cannot drive cars like humans and look exactly like humans when they do it, and also the misconception that when someone sends you a video about dogs driving cars it is definitely going to be a joke video.” DOGS! DRIVING! CARS! YOU JERKS!
Please go out and adopt a rescue dog now! They can drive cars! They can be your personal drivers and drive you around town and you can buy them a hat and they can wear the hat and you can say, “Woof woof, where are we going today!” in a dog voice and then answer, “We’re going to the mall!” And then give the dog whatever treat means “mall” AND THEN THE DOG WILL DRIVE YOU TO THE MALL. Adorable. You can teach an old dog an amazing and totally dangerous new trick.
