Suicidal Animals and the Suicide of the West

By February 26, 2008Fr. Angelo Geiger, News


“Typically if people go out to work all day their parrot will get very bored and frustrated and eventually develop depression,?? he said.

??Symptoms often include plucking out their feathers or self-harming, which is obviously very dangerous.

Forget the Prozac and buy the stupid bird a monkey and a piano. Then teach Polly to say “Play it again, Sam.” Not only will the bird have an outlet, but the owner will make millions.

Suicidal animals. Please.

Hat tip to Extra Frate.

    We have gone completely over the top. Get the monkey if they must … or maybe just get a life! Or … if you’re not going to be home, don’t get a needy pet … (cats are perfect … they can take ya or leave ya.) Or let the bird fly off into the heavens where he/she’d prefer. There, we’ve given them plenty of more logical solutions to this dilemma besides prozac … buy a monkey, sell the pet to someone who wants it or release it to the outdoors. That was easy.

  • Ha, I’d take the monkey any day!
