Strange Sunday Musings: Tasers and Belly Buttons

1) Do you think there’s a guy somewhere on this planet that has ever tried to sterilize himself with a taser to the nuts?

People do some stupid shit, and the dumb-assery is not just limited to kids.  Grown “adults” who should know better come up with all sorts of inventive ways to cause unintentional bodily damage to themselves.  You would think the outcomes of some of these experiments would be obvious.  Think of all the people who end up in emergency rooms after trying to use vegetables or small furry rodents for sexual satisfaction.  People looking for an easy or cheap way to do something, (or get away with something) and they get these bright ideas.  Think of all the strange warnings on products we buy everyday…those warnings just prove that some moron, somewhere, at some time, tried to do exactly that stupid thing that the label is warning you not to do.

Please do not allow your dog to operate a motor vehicle while on this medication

Oh, shit...

Oh, shit…

2) Do kittens have belly buttons?

Earlier today, the J* pointed at the cat’s tummy and said “ba-ba?” which is how she says “belly button.”  Hubs said, “No, honey, the kitty doesn’t have a belly button.

I turned to him and said, “Yes, he does!” I know this because I have felt the kitty’s belly button before…  It’s not much more than a small dent in his belly, buried under a lot of fur.

Or have I?

Kittens are placental mammals, and therefore should have belly buttons.  However, unless you are right there at the moment of birth, you may not see the umbilical cord like you would on a human baby.  That’s a mother cat usually chews the cord off after a kitten is born and the mother may then eat the placental sac.

So, there you go…  Now, aren’t you glad you asked?
