You also probably know that I tend to laugh at things that perhaps I shouldn't. I can't help it. I find things funny. Even things that devastate others. If you don't want your opinion of me lowered any more than it already is... you might want to exit now. But, if your opinion of me couldn't get worse, or you're as evil as I am... read on.
My dear friend, Brandito, shared this story with me. He knows me too well. I laughed just at the title of the article.
Martha Stewart's Beloved Dog Killed in Freak Explosion
That was the opening to the article. And yes, that's what made me laugh. I told you I was heartless. The article goes on...
Her dog was among the 17 dogs killed in a tragic propane blast that happened Friday during a propane delivery to the elite kennel.
"I am deeply saddened by this story," Stewart wrote in a post on her official blog. "My heart goes out to Karen Tracy [the kennel's co-owner], and I am hoping for a speedy recovery for those [both pets and humans] injured in this terrible event."
It's not funny. I know it's not. But allow me to point out a few things here...
1. She named her dog Ghenghis Kahn.
2. She hopes for a speedy recovery for "those" injured. She then defines "those" as "both pets and humans." Am I the only one to notice that she lists pets first? I know people consider them a part of their family... but, seriously? Wouldn't you wish for a human to recover more than a dog? If not... that scares me.
I know that animal lovers everywhere are ready to kill me. And probably donate my organs to poor dogs in need of them.
