A QUESTION OF CONSCIENCE.....


Hmm, does harnessing a pet's excess energy to shred documents infringe on pet labor laws?  This is an instance where political correctness could get very messy. Is it saving electricity, going green and giving your hamster exercise OR is it exploiting rodents? What say ye? I thought it was pretty clever, actually. I hope you're having a good week!

I guess the little critters are going to run around anyway so why not let them do it for a cause....

Very clever. I say if Mr. Hamster's working on his fitness anyway, why not use it to power something else?

Toooo funny! And very, very clever-don't you think?

I say kill all the rodents. I'm sure my view is going to prove me very popular! HAHA!

Considering the number of mice are killed on an annual basis for scientific research, I'd say it's A.OK.

Also, fun fact: animal cruelty laws don't extend to invertabrates. So you can torture/work your pet lobster all you want!

Kristin said...

That's freaking hysterical and quite brilliant I think!

I think it's teaching the hamster the value of a good green home! Which he is already aware of and awaits us to catch up with him.
Too cute.
