Decisions, Decisions

I guess that there was a survey question recently in which they asked the respondents, "So, if there was a burning building and you had to choose between saving your dog or a person that you didn't know, who you choose?", and close to 40% of the folks said that they'd save their dog. Wow, I guess that people really do their canines...............................................................................So, who would I choose? I don't have a dog but I do have a cat and as much as I love the cat I would obviously choose the human. ALTHOUGH, if I did know OF the person and that person happened to be Bashir al Assad or Major Nidal Hassan or Sirhan Sirhan or basically anybody else of that ilk, I would take the cat.......Kenny G? Hm, yeah, I guess.

Surprised you didn't stick a dig at me in there. Such as, "if I knew the person was an unproductive member of society like wd... I might just save my cat and let wd burn".

You're not a dictator or an assassin, wd.

D. Luthor said...

Interesting discussion topic. I hope someone's delusions of grandeur and believing they cause everything doesn't dumb it down too much.

Rusty Shackelford said...



Dervy would knock over three kids and two old ladies to get out....

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

George Costanza in that Eric the Clown episode of "Seinfeld".

Rational Nation USA said...

Continuing to stir the pot I see.

Jerry Critter said...

I'd save my family first...and my dog is a member.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

You would save your dog over a human being?

Jerry Critter said...

No, I would my family member first.

D. Luthor said...

Jerry: how about your pet goldfish? Vs a stranger?

Id like to think that I would save the stranger not the dog.

Rusty Shackelford said...



Jerry would save Dervy before family,dog or fish.....he would fireman carry Dervy out of the burning building.

Now,a problem would arise for Jerry if both Dervy and Shaw were in the fire.....what to do....what to do...

Rusty Shackelford said...



Jerry would be Marty Feldman

Dervy would be Gene Wilder

Dervish Sanders said...

I'd lock the door behind me if Rusty was inside.

D. Luthor said...

Rusty: and how did Dervy's fire start? Chicken fryer?

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

I think that when Jerry gives this some additional thought he might reconsider.......And wd, again with the paucity of perspective.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Arguing over politics shouldn't make you want the other person to die.

D. Luthor said...

The Col.'s paucity is more than made up for by his poultry.

Do you:
A) Rescue WD.
B) Rescue Jerry
C) Go home and write a 40,000 word blog post about Keith Olbermann.
D) Its the NFL pre-season. Leave me alone, I have pointless football to watch.

Rusty Shackelford said...



The story was D....even though he had worked the fry station for six years at KFC Dervy made the foolish error of throwing frozen chicken parts in the hot grease....the rest,as they say is history.

D. Luthor said...

A result akin to "bobbing for french fries" right, Rusty?

Rusty Shackelford said...




Im going to have to go with D on that one

Rusty Shackelford said...



Dervy got fired for his foolishness at KFC...but do his extensive time in a paper hat business he quickly caught on with a gig at Popeye's. Now he has to say "regular or spicy" not "regular or extra crispy."

Jerry Critter said...

Looks like you reap what you sow, Will.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

I had thought about steering wd in the direction of Starbuck's. I thought that maybe it would be safer for him. But then I realized - hot coffee, law suits, the fact that I like Starbuck's (50 cent refills on Tazo tea).......

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

I'm not entirely sure what that means, Jerry, but, OK.

D. Luthor said...

Would a Subway be safe for him? Untoasted subs only.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Or baking (I guess that they bake their own grinder rolls).

D. Luthor said...

Can he be trusted with the knives used to cut long subs in half?

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Alright, there's gotta be some place where he can work.

Rusty Shackelford said...



Lets face the facts guy's....we will be supporting Dervy for a longgggggg time.

You know between 4 and 5% of americans are unemployable for whatever reason...he's in that group.

D. Luthor said...

Some place where the tools of the craft are school paste and short round-ended scissors.

Or maybe... you can't get into trouble with an Easy-Bake Oven, can you?

D. Luthor said...

Rusty: the group that works low skill chimp jobs and feels they are entitled to $15 an hour?

Yeah a sense of entitlement as a replacement for a work ethic. The code of the mooch.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

How 'bout access security in which he only has to check IDs and have people sign in and out (and hopefully not call the managers, plutocrats)? Surely he can handle that.

D. Luthor said...

As long as it isn't at a polling place. He is opposed to stopping voter fraud. He'd let an Acorn approved voter whose name was on a list 30 times have 30 votes. I suppose he could check IDs in less critical places....

Like, as you imply, an office building. Where the worst he would do is look the other way as Michael Moore slipped into the building to film a hit-piece.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

I can live with that.
