What in the world is this dude doing wearing a bandana?
Just kidding. Check out his shirt.
It’s been a long day. I needed Bob Ross’ soothing voice to calm my stressed-out mind.
I just got an email from regular-reader Xina with the subject line, “Why didn’t I think of this?”
Inside was a link for this story. Apparently some rather forward-thinking, business-minded entrepreneurs who happen to also be atheist started a “Take care of your pet(s) after the rapture” service. They called the business: Eternal Earth-Bound Pets and they charged a measly $135 for the first pet, and $20 for each subsequent pet and promised:
You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved. But when the Rapture comes, what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind?” Eternal Earth-Bound Pets says on its website, offering to “take that burden off your mind.
Later the article says:
When judgment day happens, Eternal Earth-Bound Pets co-founder Bart Centre “will notify all of our rescuers to go into action and they will drive to the homes of anyone who’s signed a contract with us, pick up their pets and take them home and adopt them as their own, keeping them happy and healthy for the rest of their lives.
“This will happen only if and when the Rapture happens. So we do not expect to have to do anything on Saturday,” Centre told AFP.
And wouldn’t you know it, they got clients. Two hundred and fifty nine, they said. And if you do the math, that’s almost $35,000 … what a great con! And if you consider the extra pets … they probably made another $20,000 … because lots of people have two to three animals.
Chances of actually having to follow through and take care of the dogs and cats on Sunday?
Thanks for the link, Xina!
