News, but not the serious kind
So a leopard CAN change its spots?
Sometimes I have to make up stupid stuff for this blog, but of course it’s much better when there is real, honest stupid stuff like this, to save me the trouble.
The photo above shows the two new zebras at a zoo in Gaza City.
While using this technique so children may may experience nature’s variety is beyond dumb, it does open whole new vistas for “zoos” in places where cost is an issue.
After all, there are only a handful of basic zoo animal shapes.
You’ve got your horse-shape, your big cat-shape and your monkey shape. Okay, maybe elephants and giraffes are more of a challenge, but that’s what steroids and neck-extenders are for, am I right?
A word of caution. Unless you want mass childhood trauma on a scale never seen before, you get those kids the hell out of there FAST when it starts to rain!
