Wed Mar 6, 2019, 12:32 AM

My dog threw up on the floor today.

After which he went back and ate it which seems disgusting to me personally. But then I realized that his condition imparted a deep philosophical lesson. The holy bible says, "As the dog returns to his own vomit, so does the fool to his own folly." I think that's Ecclesiastes or maybe it's Proverbs I don't know. But then I realized something even more disgusting. My dog may not only be an evangelical but he may be a Republican as well.

OMG

1. Evangelicals and Republicans don't read, remember, or live by the Bible... so you're doggo is okay.

Unless you are wrong about that being in the Bible... if it is not, then you might have a dangerous dog on your hands.

2. Oh that's right. Illiteracy among the rw is quite high.

He must be safe then. I just wish he'd find something better to read.

3. Hey, at least it was the floor.

Our cats always head for the carpet - especially our single Oriental rug.

8. Well he's pretty indiscriminate actually.

This time he at least went toward the door rather than the carpet. But it doesn't happen too often.

4. Revulsion or disgust may be one of the few uniquely human

emotions.

It is interesting sort of, that it is mainly when vomit is fully externalized that eating it is taboo.

7. It's like spitting in a glass of water then trying to drink it.

I'd imagin it's an evolutionary response humans have picked up. If your body expels it there's a reason. Humans that re-ingested something the body rejected may not have survived as well as those who learned to fear it thus creating a natural revulsion to anything excretory.

And then there are the right wingers who keep returning to their own brain vomit. I definitely have a natural revulsion to their repetitive unhealthy mental state. Maybe they will devolve out of existance.

5. The dog is obviously a liberal.

Conservatives don't recycle.
