A Brain the Size of a Golf Ball
For those who have read my previous rants on compassion-challenged Michael Vick and the ignorant, cruel seal killers of Canada, my friend and author of Cheekiermesly brings up a third moron for my list. Pro golfer Tripp Isenhour shot and shot his tiny ball (golf, that is) at a red-shouldered hawk until he killed it. I hope they prosecute his pansy, candy @ss to the full extent of the law. The article can be found here. I read it with disgust. I know some people have momentary lapses of reason and do ridiculous things. Well, fine, I say, and now he should pay for it. The first tariff should come from the authorities who are investigating the incident. For cruelty to animals and killing a migratory bird, this misdemeanor could bring a maximum penalty of 14 months in jail and $1,500 fine. Fine with me. The second perhaps should come in the form of an irreparable tick that invades his golf swing for the rest of his days. May the poor, dear hawk rest in peace. Can you tell I'm mad?
