Monkeys Fighting Dogs
This pearl of a story came in on the wire over the weekend:
Officer's Shots Save Skunk Stuck in Jar
CARROLLTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Officer James Kellett knows it's job to serve and protect — even when it comes to nature's stinky black and white creatures.
When a skunk with its head stuck in a salad dressing jar wandered into the Carrollton Township police station's parking lot, he grabbed a pellet gun and shot at the jar from about 40 feet away.
The shots cracked and shattered the jar, leaving a glass collar around the skunk's neck. With its head free, the skunk ran off.
"I didn't want to use deadly force, and it is a residential area," Kellett told The Saginaw News. "The way he was when he took off, he was able to eat, breathe and spray — and do anything else skunks like to do."
Kellett didn't get much in the way of gratitude, but he's grateful the skunk didn't spray. But there is one bonus — the makers of T. Marzetti's salad dressing are sending the officer coupons good for free dressing as a reward.
To serve and protect, indeed. Keep up the good work, Officer. The community owes you big time for this one, you minority-oppressing prick. After freeing the skunk from the "T. Marzetti Supreme Caesar salad dressing" jar that was stuck on its head, we imagine you had a pretty eventful crime-fighting afternoon... You know, getting cats out of trees and helping old ladies cross the road.
Perhaps you even sent out an APB on a large box of strawberry cream donuts... Gotta love those cops!
But while exposing the ineptitude of the police force using skunks and caesar salad dressing as examples of their incompetence is a fun, we need to move on to the real subject matter of this post:
Dogs and monkeys fighting each other.
Now, dogs and monkeys are not natural enemies, at least not in the way that the ants and caterpillars are natural enemies, or in the way that Britney Spears and common sense are natural enemies. But when dogs and monkeys meet, their hair-brained antics are usually a lot of fun to watch. So we spent our morning "researching" the depths of youtube in search of monkeys...
Fighting each other.
