Turns Out Hunky Santa's a Whore!


So I received a link to Hunky Santa's Top 10 Holiday Gift Picks, and I was so excited to share it with you because, let's face it, you and I and Hunky Santa -- the body-oiled shopping mall mascot -- have been through a lot together here in this blog.

And then I read it, and it was fine and hunky, until, to my dismay, H.S. let his corporate overlords make him write the following:

"($500-$3,000) What better gift for any household than a friendly new addition? Pet Love has a wide assortment of warm, fuzzy dogs, kittens, hamsters -- and any other pet imaginable -- all looking for a good home and a new best friend."

Well, of COURSE, as any multicelled creature should know by now, an animal is a TERRIBLE present. You really shouldn't surprise someone with a lifetime of responsibility. Plus, nothing against the good people of "Pet Love" but if they really loved pets they'd stop selling them and start sending people to shelters to adopt healthier, hardier animals for thousands of dollars less.

Anyway, if you'd still like to give an animal as a gift, I'd forget Hunky Santa, and instead listen to the recommendations of the ASPCA, in this informative article: Pets as Presents For Your Kids: Planning Makes All the Difference.
