GOOD IDEA: –
Going to the Zoo. Seriously. It’s open all year and even with a bit of snow on the ground o’s a nice walk … and the snow’s gonna be almost all gone by the weekend anyway.
The Toronto Zoo is awesome. I love that place. I know there are people who get their back up going “I feel bad for the animals.” That’s not a bad sentiment to have, it’s not. It’s a good thing. You’re a good person to care about other animals and not want them to suffer. But you’re not dealing with a circus here, you’re dealing with the Toronto zoo, which is staffed by university educated vets and zoology students.
The people there know more about animals than you could ever hope to know by watching horribly skewed agenda laden documentaries on the internet.
Side note: I love the zoo, but I hate Pandas. I do. And right now they’re making a big push for you to go to the zoo and check out the new baby pandas. They’re doodlin around and stuff like that. Take my advice. Stay the hell away from the Pandas.
The exhibit itself, all the info, history on pandas, their involvement in Chinese culture, their diet, all that stuff is the interesting part. By the time you reach the actual Pandas they’re just two fat loafers flopping around and that’s if they’re awake. You know those anti drug PSA’s they used to show about lazy teenagers smoking pot and amounting to nothing? That’s what Pandas are, they are the burn outs of the animal kingdom, and people are obsessed with them.
You know what’s the best exhibit at the zoo? The Ferrets. They run around, they play, they have fun, they do stuff.
Goddamn Pandas, so expensive and they don’t even work for it. The ferret. That’s an animal. That’s a goddamn champion. Stupid Panda jerks.
