When Do You Stop?

At what point does trying to keep kittens alive turn into cruelty to animals?

Two of the tiny ones have gone. The other two are not doing well, even with subcutaneous fluids and being kept warm. One had blood in his stool, indicating intestinal bleeding.

I ask myself this every time, and I still don't have a good answer.

In honor of national humor month

Don't cook. Don't clean. No man will ever make love to a woman because she waxed the linoleum - "My God, the floor's immaculate. Lie down, you hot b*tch." ~Joan Rivers

The obvious and fair solution to the housework problem is to let men do the housework for, say, the next six thousand years, to even things up. The trouble is that men, over the years, have developed an inflated notion of the importance of everything they do, so that before long they would turn housework into just as much of a charade as business is now. They would hire secretaries and buy computers and fly off to housework conferences in Bermuda, but they'd never clean anything. ~Dave Barry
