Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Hi Everybuddy -

We hope all our buddies are enjoying the teaspoon of snow we were bestowed with a couple days ago. Unfortunately it rained alot afterwards which really tends to spoil our fun. We're trying to remain optimistic that one of these days we'll get some real snow. Mom still stands by the theory that we'll need to move North in order to experience that. We're thinking she just might be right. In the meantime, we've been spending some time observing the world around us. Here I am hard at work observing:

The rainy weather has offered us an opportunity to study that subject in a bit more detail than we typically do. Recently a couple very amusing recalls ended up in Mom's email box. (I've been helping her out with her email because she's been busy doing weird things like stress over paint colors for the kitchen). I should note that we've always questioned the intelligence and common sense of mankind but these two recent recalls just seems to drive that point home a little bit further. First there's the recalled home improvement book. Here it is. It doesn't look too threatening:

Why was it recalled you might ask? Despite the fact that the main topic of discussion in the book was how to safely wire your home, it was recalled for........ready for this........incorrect wiring information. Need I elaborate any further on that one??!

Now let's take a look at the next one. Ice Boots. Apparently the humans invented a boot which allows them to walk safely on ice. The point of course would be - to keep them safe.

Unfortunately these boots were recalled this week. Why? Because there's a risk of falling. ::gasp:: Of course! Why didn't I think of that??!!

All of this information left me wondering.....what does the future hold for these humans? It would seem to me they're their own worst enemies sometimes. It's so much easier to be a Sibe!

Hmm. . . interesting stuff! Maybe they'll come out with a recall on my crate and gentle leader. That would be happy day for me!

Thank you for putting up information on the "Don't Get a Dog" campaign. I'm not sure how much it will work to keep stupid people from getting dogs and then neglecting them, but if it saves one its worth it!

As far as the recalls, does any of this SURPRISE you? I didn't think so!

Good works!

Hmmm, maybe it is a conspiracy - some people do something wrong intentionally so others can have a job at the recall factory.

Woos, the OP Pack

I totally agree with you, Echo. Have you read the warning labels on some of their stuff? Crazy!

You are so right, being a sibe is easier. I wonder about the humans too.
