Musician Pete Doherty, who looks a lot like Sloth’s less attractive but less bald brother in the above picture, reportedly spent an outing at a wildlife park chucking joints at aquatic flightless birds. According to London Net,
Pete caused chaos at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, in Oxfordshire, when he threw what looked like a cannabis joint to the penguins. One of the Humboldt penguins promptly swallowed it. A source told The Sun: “He was joking about getting the penguins stoned. He threw them his joint and it looked like one penguin gulped it down. It seemed very wobbly.” London Zoo’s chief veterinary officer blasted Pete’s antics, [saying] “Feeding a penguin cannabis could be fatal. It contains toxins that attack the nervous system and liver.”
First of all, even as big of a douchebag as Pete is, a little marijuana isn’t going to kill anybody or shut down their freakin’ liver. I know this for a fact — my idiot dog once ate a half-ounce of some really great bud in one sitting, and the only thing that happened was I got really pissed and he slept for three days straight. And he really seemed to dig my Pink Floyd albums and my black light posters. Now, what you never, NEVER want to do is feed mescaline to a dairy cow. Surprising number of civilian casualties and tens of thousands of dollars in damaged property when you give a 3,000 pound mammal hallucinogens. They should really put a print a warning on that shit. It pretty much ruined my uncle’s birthday party.
UPDATE: Apologies, folks, but the server does not want to upload the pictures today, probably as punishment for yesterday’s post about P. Diddy. As soon as it’s rectified, the pictures will go up. Just use your imagination in the mean time.
