ban pet store baby animals

Too many pets are born unwanted, and too many pets are stuck in the pound.

Instead we should make pet store focus on rehousing unwanted pets.

Would help make the pound's life easier, and help reduce the number of pets that workers there are forced to euthanase.

Oh.... or you can just ban animals all together... that's an option too http://www.nbcnews....shops/#.VT7sjCGqqko

       e) all of the above.

       My wife managed a flagship pet store of a well known chain.   

       She would come home saddened by the inevitable deaths of animals, but the care provided was all that it could be. You had the usual limitations of humans doing jobs, and we've all known those employees.   

       The stores are conscious of their image problem and do what they can, but animals don't live forever, and not everything was intended to be a pet. The market place drives what is sold though.   

       Some of the other events were more entertaining. Like the day all the scorpions got out.

       I was stung by a scorpion in Mexico once. Went into anaphylactic shock. Mexican dudes took me to a vet for treatment, no doctor near by. Very weird tequila night.

       Weird night or was it weird tequila ? Yeah, in the absence of a trained human doctor I'll take a vet, no problem. Next best thing.   

       I'd like to make some tequila, but I lack a giant cactus heart.

       got stung, probably a spider, last summer; lower legs swelled up like balloons. Coulda used some tequila.

       I would like to point out that the first anagram for this idea title provided by the Internet Anagram Server is "A Attainable Snobby Sperm". Which I think is great: snobby but not too snobby - just snobby enough to make it challenging.   

       If only there were a little button, sort of like the one to produce new halfbakery taglines, but which would instead convert the idea titles into random anagrams. I thought of this because "ban pet store baby" kept looking out of the corner of my eye like it should say something else. I think the Anagram server knows: "by porn babe teats".

       //Too many pets are born unwanted// The solution, shirley, is to twin every pet store with a restaurant.
