Sick on a Sunday

Dog Gets High, Eats Golf Balls

Thank you, CNN, for your cutting-edge, breaking news coverage.

I did not major in broadcasting in college, so I have to wonder: is the severity in which reporters deliver every, single story taught in school?  This woman’s tone of voice is identical to any coverage of actual newsworthy events; which, unfortunately, are almost always huge downers.  It seems remarkably misleading to use this tone of voice across the board.

And when the owner expresses her concern for how easily it was for her dog to find the pot, “It could have happened to anyone’s dog… or kid.”  

Think back to when you were a kid – did you ever eat straight spices out of the kitchen cabinets?  No, right? How about out of a plastic bag you found in the woods?

Kids can be rambunctious little punks sometimes.  Kids stick shit up their nose all the time.  But seriously, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a kid who would eat strong-smelling dried plants out of a bag they found on the ground in the woods.  This lady clearly does not have any kids (also indicated when she referred to her dog as “my baby”).
