Man’s Best Friend — Forever. And Ever. And Ever.

dog1.jpgMan a-freakin-live, folks in Florida aren’t just criminally inclined, some of them are downright creepy. In fact, this week the Florida legislature passed a bill allowing, for the first time, people to be buried with the remains of their pets.

What sort of bizarre lobbyist group got that pushed through? Some sort of weirdo animal rights group with a lot of clout, right? Like, WEPA — Wackjobs for the Ethical Treatment of Animals?

Nope. The answer is Florida State Senator Jeff King, who pushed the law through after he discovered that (gasp!) he couldn’t be buried with the remains of his Labrador. It turns out that he received the pooch as a Valentine’s Gift from his wife several years ago and, now, he just can’t imagine entering the pearly gates without his canine by his side. So, if the Governor signs the law into legislation, people in Florida will forever be able to spend their afterlives with Fido decomposing next to them.

Now, the question is — do they extend the law to allow people to be buried with other animals, ‘cause I know a few guys who’d probably like to enter the great beyond with their horses.

Dude! What is so freaking wrong with this? Either you are *against* people being buried with animals, state your reason; if you don't object to it, let it be. It's not for you, fine, but how does it harm anything if other people do it? In fact, I have no idea why the prohibitive law was on the books in the first place. We're not talking about anything involving cruelty or a moral equivocation, so who does it offend?

You're a creepy WACKO dude for not realizing that many people love animals. Or should I just call you an AI (that's "A" for Absolute and "I" for idiot)? Come on down to the sunshine state and get that cold, cold heart of yours thawed out. Better yet, stay away. You are so in love with the sound of your rhetoric that you have no idea of what matters to people.

So. Does that mean the person gets into the Happy Hunting Grounds? Or the animal gets into heaven?

Does it affect reincarnation? Will there be more dog-faced boys now?

How can this decision be made without considering all the possible ramifications?!

Not that any of this matters if the people are of a Judeo-Christian orientation, since the Bible specifically says that animals have no souls, so they don't get to go to Heaven. I suppose if you want your carcass to decompose along with your pet, though, more power to you. *shrug*

So do you commit suicide when your dog dies or have your dog murdered when you die. Timing seems to be of the essence here.
