…the parrots begin to jabber

This is what Willis was talking about!

Thanks for the info, NAVS

Heard a PSA last week for a “cruelty free” shopping guide.  Ordered it here(link).  They claim in their stupid commercial that I can take it with me when I go shopping to help me buy items that were not tested on animals.  I say “stupid” because evidently this family lives in a house full of animal tested things and they are using the guide to find out what to wash their hair with. 

Anyway… I printed my guide this morning.  No more looking at the bottle in stores to see if these people choose to use me as a guinea pig on their stuff.  I have actually not purchased things in the past because they claim that they don’t test on animals.  No amount of feeling good about myself because I am saving the planet one furry rodent at a time will ease the pain of a burning scalp in the shower because some company didn’t want to cram it down a rabbit’s throat.  I think they would sell more shampoo if they set aside half of their label to explain that they fed a duck 2 pounds of this stuff and all he did was quack bubbles.  “We shaved 30 cats with this shaving creme and all we got was naked cats.  Buy our shaving creme!”

  1. this is stupid. you can’t be serious! why do conservatives and lazy people think that being nice to other beings makes you less of a person? the better question is what would you do if someone did experiements on your parents or your kids? what harm would it do to be nicer to all gods creatures?

**Addendum – Thanks for the note, Jen.  This is a female friendly site and you’re always welcomed here! 

As for your stupid-ass comment, My parents and children have souls. If you are the same “Jen” that made those brilliant and enlightened comments about abortion a few months ago, you disagree with me that this is important, I know.  So, let’s put it a different way.  My parents and kids are smart enough not to drink 6 pounds of liquefied eye shadow.  At least my parents and one of my kids are.  That’s the rub.  I’d rather a lab rat get the effects of those fat free Doritos before unsuspecting Americans dig into them.  That is what happens when they don’t test.  You think a test monkey would have okay’d Crystal Pepsi?  No way.

I’m not saying I want “Super Extra Cruelty Tested” products tested on the furriest of bunnies.  Although… I’m getting a good idea.  That will be another post.  I’m just saying that I’d rather have a few dead mice, rats, pigeons, opossums, bats, frogs, chickens, beavers, owls, horses, cats, whales… name it than Mrs. Fullbug come into the kitchen and find out the mortgage is all hers now oh, and the peach flavored yogurt yum yums in a cup is poisonous.  Cruelty free but poisonous.
