Leave the donkeys alone!!
To demonstrate the "bestial" nature of homosexuality, a group of right-wing protesters attempted to bring a donkey convoy to Thursday's Jerusalem Pride Parade. Thankfully they were stopped by police outside the city limits.
Four donkeys and dozens of right-wing protesters tried unsuccessfully to reach the Pride Parade, where 7,000 people are expected.
We're sure the donkeys were disappointed they had to miss out on the fabulousness!! Maybe next year - if you get some cooler friends.
An ultra-Orthodox protest will take place in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Sharim, but no protests are allowed along the parade route.

SICK SICK PEOPLE!
After a year-long investigation by PETA Asia-Pacific and the National Bureau of Investigations, police have now charged a Philippine couple with cruelty to animals and other crimes related to producing a series of pornographic videos in which young girls torture and kill animals.
WARNING: Graphic descriptions follow
The "crush" videos that the Ridons are believed to have produced show scantily clad 12-year-old girls as they stomp on live animals, a rabbit as he or she is skinned alive, other rabbits as they scream while their ears are cut off and they are set on fire, a dog as he or she is burned with a clothes iron, and a monkey who was repeatedly hit in the eye with the sharp end of a stiletto heel. There is more, including puppies crushed until they vomited their own internal organs. A bill currently in the Philippine Senate would criminalize the sale of such "crush videos," already illegal in the U.S. and other countries.
Faced with the charges, suspects Dorma and Vic Ridon have fled. Warrants have been issued for them.

IT'S NOT TRUE!
Late last week, international headlines were made with the sensational story of a dog being stoned in a Rabbinic court in Jerusalem after a judge realized it was a deceased lawyer reincarnated. Apparently, the story wasn't true.
The Israeli newspaper that first reported the story, Maariv, has issueed a retraction statement saying:
"We published an item headlined 'Meah Shearim: A Bet Din (religious court) instructed that a dog be stoned.' In the article it was reported that a complaint was made to the police by the Israeli animal protection society against the Rabbinical Court for Monetary Matters in Jerusalem. According to Rabbi Yehoshua Levin, workers from the municipal authority collected the dog from the court. The headline of the article did not reflect the full story and we apologize to the court and its members for the distress caused.
There is no basis for stoning dogs or any other animal in the Jewish religion, not since the days of the Temple or Abraham. The female dog found a seat in the corner of the court. And the children were delighted by it; there were hundreds outside the court. They are used to seeing stray cats but most have never seen a dog before."
Ok, it's not true we can move on — wait!!! Why haven't they seen dogs before???
Why aren't there dogs in Jerusalem?
This only leads to more questions.

Wake up (after you brush your teeth with whisky) take some responsibility!!
Ke$ha can take FULL credit for becoming one of the leaders of the feather hair extension craze that have become as popular at salons as gossipy gay hairdressers - but she doesn't want everyone to peg her as the source for roosters that die after their plumage is plucked.
While stylists scour their nearest fish bait shops for these specific hard-to-find feathers (the long, skinny black-and-white striped feathers called "grizzly saddle"), farmers can't keep up with demand.
One farm harvests about 1,500 birds a week and can barely keep up with its current orders, boosting the price of the plumes (from the rooster's butt) up to nearly $500!
What's worse - the birds are killed before these feathers are removed.
Friday Ke$ha tried defending herself and her
murderous feathery hair stuffs via twitter.
"I'm hearing about roosters that have been plucked and hurt or even killed for thier feathers…"
"I'd love to give u guys my own personal feather contact. she's totally animal friendly + recycles bones + feathers to make all my accessories."
"If u guys like feathers-try animal friendly pieces meet my friend Kate!"

In his new book Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet of Canine Curiosities, Cardiff University historian Jan Bondeson reveals obscure German periodicals that prove
Lex Luthor Adolf Hitler, tried to breed an army of talking dogs.
According to the book, scientists envisioned a day when dogs would serve alongside German troops, and perhaps free up SS officers by guarding concentration camps.
So to unlock all that canine potential, Hitler set up a Tier-Sprechschule (Animal Talking School) near Hanover and recruited "educated dogs" from throughout the country.
Teachers claimed a number of incredible findings. Perhaps most outlandish is the claim by his German masters that he asked to serve in the German army because he disliked the French.
Another mutt barked "Mein Fuhrer" when asked to describe Hitler. And Don, a German pointer, is said to have imitated a human voice to bark, "Hungry! Give me cakes!" in German.

Finally, a cellphone app that actually makes you barf!
Michael Vick has TEAMED UP with the Humane Society (we know, right?) against an application built to run on Google Inc.'s Android software that glorifies dogfighting.
The app is called "Dog Wars" and lets players feed, water, train and fight their virtual dogs against others.
In a statement posted on the Humane Society's website Vick said:
"I've come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street. Now, I am on the right side of this issue, and I think it's important to send the smart message to kids, and not glorify this form of animal cruelty, even in an Android app."
We never thought we'd say this but - we totally agree with you Michael Vick!
