^Talk about an oxymoron. Why do they call those places 'gassing' or 'kill' shelters? Why not just call them "animal disposal centers" and be done with it?

Talk about an oxymoron.

Very true... I hadn't noticed it.

My next (amazing) contribution to DoCo: an owl who's achieved Zen Mode. :D

Live it up while you can doggy, in a few years you're going to have nothing but memories of the days when you were faster than your cheetah friend.

Then there's this:

http://www.sunnewsne...20120916-132928.html
"British PM fires 'Chief Mouser' Larry the cat"

British Prime Minister David Cameron has made a major cabinet move: he fired his pet cat.
Larry, Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, has been cat-napping on the job, reports the Daily Mail.

Saw this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk...environment-20142858

Quote
An Asian elephant called Koshik has astounded scientists with his Korean language skills.

Researchers report that the mammal has learnt to imitate human speech and can say five words in Korean: hello, no, sit down, lie down and good.

The zoo animal places the tip of his trunk into his mouth to transform his natural low rumble into a convincing impression of a human voice.

I just today wondered why no Zoo has yet decided to make an "Operating System Wing". All the big cats from OS X, and all the myriad animals from Ubuntu!
