Crazy Cat Ladies, Demented Dog Dudes


This week "Penn & Teller: Bullshit!" takes on people who love their pets just a little too much.

Or, as many are known in the modern parlance, "crazy cat ladies."  (Sidebar trivia: Malco-blessings on the first person who can give the actual name of the Crazy Cat Lady from "The Simpsons.")

Featured clips include a woman with no life and roughly 25 cats, and a rather disgusting glass-blower.

I spared you the guy who is getting rich selling fake dog testicles, however.

I don't have a big problem with the anthropomorphizing of pets – although it isn't for me – but it does tend to go hand-in-hand with animal "rights."  The duo don't get into that topic here, although they excoriated PETA in a previous episode.

When animals start paying taxes, then maybe we can discuss their "rights."  (As always, Penn's language might be a bit strong for some work environments.)
