The Bird Man of Stillwater

This is simply beyond farce:

An Eagan man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail for ripping the head off his girlfriend’s parakeet.

So, according to the U.S. Justice system, it is one-seventh as bad to behead your girlfriend’s parakeet as it is to kill your sleeping husband by shooting him in the back.

All I can say is that when the first robot sex doll company goes public, make like Larry Kudlow and buy, buy, buy. I very much doubt that if the guy did it to his own parakeet, or even in a pet store, he’d be liable for more than a $10 fine. I mean, you can buy the little creatures wholesale for $5 online.

And if killing a little bird is a crime, it’s time we do something about those four-legged, furry mass murderering snakes with legs.
