I just saw the strangest thing on television. Some company just came out with a ridiculously fancy shoe that costs something like $120,000. Now, I ask you, before I even get to my point, who in the world is going to walk around in a shoe that costs this much? I guarantee that the shoe isn't even comfortable. And can you imagine spilling something on it - how would you possibly breathe knowing that you were wearing a pair of shoes more expensive than some homes?
But, anyway, my point is that at the presentation of these new shoes, they displayed the shoes in a large case with a cobra. Come again? Yep, you heard me. They put a cobra into the display with the shoes - saying that if anyone tried to steal the shoes, they would have to contend with a cobra. Now, I don't know about you, but I certainly wouldn't want to go up against a cobra. But, I found the feature distasteful. Leave the darn cobra alone! There he was being photographed by hordes of photographers and media hounds. It was really ridiculous. I think animals are commercialized and used way too much. Leave the animals in peace and find some other dumb way to advertise your ridiculously expensive shoes. That's my gripe for the day. I really hate when animals are abused and used for the sake of showy advertising and personal gain. Any thoughts?
