From Acerbia the other day:
Later today we walked past another store, selling inflated hearts with red paper hearts inside and a small bear standing up on it’s hind legs, face pressed pathetically against the transparent plastic.
I wonder how they get the bear inside.
“He’s sealed inside at the factory” she said.
How does he breathe?
“He doesn’t, thats why he’s pressed up against the side like that, he spent his last few seconds screaming ‘help meeee!’ at the uncaring factory workers”
(There is more to this – you can see it on D’s site)
As I went to Wal-Mart on Valentine’s Day to pick up cat food, I started laughing this crazed, manic laugh as I saw people purchasing those poor teddy bears trapped inside balloons. Considering it was Wal-Mart, I’m not sure if anyone noticed. All I could think of was “the uncaring factory workers! They watched them die!” Yes, it was just too funny. Probably one of the best moments of my Valentine’s Day.
