Welcome to the newest segment of our blog called “Story of the week”.
As zealous, terribly curious news fans, odie and I read the digital paper religiously and at the appropriate times; morn, noon and night. Our daily journeys have led us to notice a disturbing trend. Approximately once a week theres a news story so bizarre, so surreal, so batsh*t insanely off the wall that we have to share it with friends and see what they really think about it. who can believe any of these wonderously weird accounts if not for sharing all of their incredulity for rational scrutiny and asking another sane person, “wtf did I just read, and could this possibly be real?” That other person says “yes, sadly (or greatly, but for the most part sadly) this did happen on our planet.” Thus the news of the strange becomes true.
And now this act of sharing to achieve rational perspective from irrational action has expanded to you, my dearest odyssians.
Again, why share? Why point out the blighted anomalies of our society? Because These articles beg us to honestly ask-
What makes us human? How low or high, (but usually low) can our society go a.k.a. what are the limits of being our species? And, As the stories get increasingly more jarring, what does all this mean for where we are headed?
Also, odie is the coolest, blogging hairless cat there is, and he likes to point claws at our human species and the crazy things we do from time to time, Things cats wouldn’t dream of in any super dark twisted if-we -could-walk-on-2-legs fantasy.
This week’s astonishing news story brings us one article closer to these answers..
A man ate cats. Lots of them. But theres more. He actually cooked and served them to “friends”. How thoughtful of him! This story pissed of odie and I equally for all the right reasons. Heres the link so you can see its veracity for yourselves. No need to download by the daily mail’s
crap app… t O read it.
O and om
And may next weeks story prove less perturbing but no less bizarre.
