injaynesworld we bring you another "Sunday Recap"


There was a lot that went on this week, some of it funny, some of it not so much.   Bear with me…  (I could bitch-slap myself for that one.)

At “Bears On Ice” in Russia this week, a five-year-old ice-skating bear, being righteously pissed off because he was being forced to be an ice-skating bear, lost it and went postal on his trainer, killing him.   And, once more, all the TV talking heads are shocked.    Really?    Shocked?     What shocks me is that when something like this happens – over and over again – we still don’t get that wild animals do not belong on fucking ice skates, or dressed in tutus standing on their heads, or jumping through hoops of  fire for our fucking amusement.   I’d like to dress these trainers in tutus, put them in ice skates and jump their asses through hoops of fire.   

To me, the tragedy here isn’t that the trainer was killed.  That was an unfortunate consequence of his chosen actions.  The real tragedy is that after displaying the natural response any wild animal would display in defending itself, this bear was killed -- because he was a wild animal!    No shit!    If I had my way these heroic, majestic creatures would be given a fucking Medal of Honor when this happens for standing up for all the other innocent, helpless animals being tortured in these freak shows so somebody can make a buck.

And while I’m at it (and I seem to be on a roll here), there wouldn’t even be circus animals if people didn’t shell out money in support of these atrocities.   What the hell kind of message does it send to kids to take them to watch animals be tormented like this?

Bullfights – same thing.    I always root for the bull.   I root for the bulls during those crazy-ass bull runs every year, too, and actually cheer when one of those testosterone-driven idiots gets themselves gored.  (Not to rag on the guys here, but I’ve yet to see an estrogen-driven idiot in one of these exhibitions.)  

Wild animals belong in the wild.   Not suffering in a show so that someone's cotton-candied-faced little darling can partake in this barbaric form of  “entertainment.”  And yes I, too, was once someone's cotton-candied-faced little darling who was taken to the circus, but I'm older than dirt and those were the dark ages.  We were ignorant of the beatings and the chains and all the other horrors these animals suffer for our benefit.  We know better now.  We have no excuse. 

Wow… Three uses of the F-word in one post.   That’s a personal best

This is an appropriate time to use the f-bomb, Jayne! Stupid people should not complain when they are rewarded for their trouble with getting messed up!

Best Wishes, Marie said...

it is upsetting.

back to the God post. soon as a person visualized a bear in a tutu -- boom, down in the tracks.

i did want to say that in west yellowstone, there is a bear sanctuary. these bears often have an injuring that will not be returned to its normal form. eye out, etc....

what is crazy is that all the way up on the highway, there are all these billboards "feel the freedom" etc... and it think "what freedom?, they are hanging in a cage with one eye."

Smart Mouth Broad said...

LMAO at your personal best.

It is amazing how everyone is so shocked when things like this happen. What do they expect?

laughykate said...

At least that bear can finally look himself in the mirror. Oh hang on, some fucker killed him for acting like............a bear.

Adam said...

Hey, Jayne, why is that even allowed, right? I don't know why PETA and greenpeace just overlook that...

By the way, : Humans 1.000.000 X Bears 100. They are doing their best, but they just have to work harder to keep up!

Jayne Martin said...

CatLady: My feeling exactly!

Marie: That definitely goes on the list.

SMB: People are fucked up. (That's 4 now.)

Kate: Wetting my pants with laughter (as opposed to just old age)

Adam: Circuses are something PETA's been fighting for years, but the only thing those people understand is the almighty dollar. When people stop paying to see this, they will finally be stopped.

Thank you all for your great comments.

What an awesome post, I cannot STAND circuses and that was before it was cool to not like them. I hated them as a child, most of that having to do with those hideous clowns, the sight of those poor animals doing the stupid tricks, they seemed so trapped in their jobs, their eyes were lifeless.

Same goes for the county fairs where they have "diving pigs" and alligator attractions...you know those animals aren't getting the care they deserve, as long as the $$ and the applause is there, they only serve that purpose.

and whenever we watch World's Dumbest or When Animals Attack, I absolutely LOVE it when the idiot human gets whats coming to them when they get gored by a bull or head butted by a deer or whatever else that animal has to do to maintain their turf or dignity...

I can't believe the bear took that long to kill the dude. Skates!! That's ridiculous!!

Linda Medrano said...

I saw a bullfight once because I had been told that the pagentry and tradition would be a fascinating thing to see. It took the first guys riding out with the "sticks" to shove into the poor bull before I got the hell out of that sick twisted crowd. How anyone could do anything like that to an animal I don't know. Thanks Jayne. You are right on the fucking money with this one!

I love when you get all worked up.

intawniasworld all the people attending said bear in tutu crap would all be shot and put out of their misery, and the bear would be allowed to go home and burn his tutu:) I live in the wild wild west so we have rodeo's here, and I think they are just awful too!
Love Tawnia

Jayne Martin said...

So, everyone, I'm thinking about forming a group: Broads For Bears. Adam, you can join, too. We had a bear who wandered out of the wilderness (that had all but burnt down this year) killed by officials recently. Why didn't they just tranquilize him and let him go? Because it's still bear-hunting season (don't get me started) and they were afraid some redneck dickwad would kill it, eat it and get sick or die from the tranquilizer in its system. My response? Good. One less redneck, dickwad bear hunter.

The Peach Tart said...

I'm with you on this one.

Kristi Stevens said...

Rodeos... don't forget rodeos.

Mrsblogalot said...

Bears on ICE? Are you kidding me?

They (the real stupid animals) deserve every animal-gone-wild-moment-they get!

In one of Chris rock's stand-up routines, he said Sigfried and Roy's tiger didn't go crazy and attack him, it went tiger and attacked him. So true.
Also heard about a shark in Australia's Barrier Reef that was hunted down and killed after it killed a swimmer. Brilliant! Excellent problem solving skills. Now how the fuck do they even know it was the same shark?
