I'm watching TV today and on Spike there was a commercial for a show called When Good Pets Go Bad. Now, I'm all in favour of watching animals beat the living fuck out of people - I've gone on record in the past as saying there's nothing funnier than when wild animals tear into the flesh and bone of a giant dipshit.
That being said, the commerical has short clips of a cobra striking at the groin of a dude, a crocodile snapping its jaws shut on the head of some asshat, and a bull tossing a rider through the air like so many potatos in a sack. All very entertaining and, in my opinion, humerous bits; the problem is that none of these animals are good pets. It's a tad misleading in the advertising and in the name of the show. Cats, dogs, budgies...I'd even extend it to include ferrets, iguanas, and what the hell, llamas. If you happen to be the owner of a crocodile, however, and it decides one day to "go bad", let me let you in on a little secret that everyone else knows as something called "regular common sense": crocodiles, cobras, and bulls make shitty pets that don't "go bad", they just think you'd make like a Coffee Crisp - a nice light snack.
