Ferrets: The Pursuit of Excellence

So the other night I was flipping through the channels and landed on this sweet sister singing about her ferret. You heard me correctly, I said ferret. So without further adieu…


And then, you can imagine my shock when they continued on this theme. Listen to your feelings as you watch. Everything within me revolts…


What in the…What? OK, so I am not a ferret owner, so I may be speaking out of turn here, but aren’t ferrets wild animals? And as such, shouldn’t they be biting and scratching the crap out of these strange people?

I love animals just as much as the next guy but…seriously? Dressing up your ferret in hula gear and singing songs about them without a functional supportive undergarment (it’s called a brassiere sweet sister, how bout we strap one on for the sake of your ferret) rides a very fine line of crossing over into absolute insanity. Am I right?

I know there are a lonely people out there, and I would rather step on my tongue than to criticize others but, come on…GET A LIFE!

By the end of the program I am happy to report that while trying to “show” her ferret at a “Ferret Show” (And yes, they really exist. Think Westminster Dog Show only with ferrets.) One of the ferrets takes a chunk out of his owner’s nose. I think he had enough of forcibly submitting to cross dress, did you see the butterfly wigs, I mean who can blame him.

If you ever have an opportunity to happen upon this show on PBS you must stop everything to watch it. It is both terrifying and hilarious.

I may live with four cats, and love them a lot, and be slightly crazy, but I'm not THAT crazy.

I respect that my cats are evil little killing machines and that I would deserve to be clawed in the face if I treated them like anything else.

Peoples is karazy.

Wha?! The last video cut off right as she was about to explain the advantage of replacing her children with ferrets! Now I'll never know.

What about the people who dress-up their dolls and carry them around town?! That's a good one, too...only on PBS.
