The news last night gave us several examples of common sense...or the lack thereof. Before I go further, allow me to introduce you to two new words - abnormal and benormal.
You're saying, "Wait, abnormal is not a new word!" For the purposes of this blog, abnormal now means ABove normal while benormal means, BElow normal. Got it? Back to the news...
Last night, there was a piece about dear ol' Octomom. Her story, in of itself, is a clear case of being benormal. On the common sense scale (CSS), where 10 is the tops, she ranks somewhere around two. I dunno... Anyway, while her story is absurd, at best, she did not take the cake last night. You see, the animal rights group, PETA, got involved in her case. What does a group like that have to do with a woman who has 14 kids? Glad you asked.
You see, PETA offered to pay her $5,000 to help her stay in her soon to be foreclosed home. In addition, it offered her a month's supply (I think it was a month) of veggie hotdogs (yuck) and other non-animal foods. In exchange, all she has to do is put a sign out in front of her house encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their animals so they don't become Octopets. Yep, that's right.

In closing, I love the bumper sticker I saw on a guy's truck the other day. It read:
So many cats, so few recipes.
