    Oh, and FK the cow. Blow it up, then barbeque it for the after party! ;)

    •  At least it didn't die in vain. (1+ / 0-)

      Anyone remember "Monkey Shines," in which a paralyzed man has a monkey assistant, but they're psychically linked and the monkey starts acting out his rage? 2-3 people are killed by the critter, which eventually meets a violent death at its master's hand, and there was a disclaimer that "No animals were harmed during filming." Too funny.

        humans are animals too. If someone accidentally gets punched for real in the course of filming a fight, an animal has been hurt. At least one human animal was killed during the filming of the 1959 Ben-Hur. Every time an accident hurts a human, an animal has been hurt. We've got to stop thinking of ourselves as something different and above the animal kingdom.
