I was so scared of where this could have gone.

Ok, so this chick is a Brit which means in no way, shape or form did my tax money go to fund this. *Whew!*

Be careful with gerbils. You never know where they've been.

Would have been more interesting if she'd put paint on its little feet and let it run around.

What a waste of a good book! - at 72 years old, doesn't it deserve a little more respect?

Is it safe for the gerbil to eat all that paper with all that ink on it. I hope it digests it safely. I don't know much about gerbils we don't have them here in Oz, but they do look cute. :p

Welcome Bograt! The gerbil is probably enjoying the book, don't you think? I don't get Hello,OK around here. That's not like Hello Kitty is it? By the way, are you in London? I hope all's well with you and yours.

Shucks. I was sort of hoping for sculptures made out of gerbils. I was even thinking about what sort of substances one would use to affix them where they were needed, the color variations of individual gerbils used to effect a color pallette, gerbils of various ages/sizes needed to fit certain areas to bring out the desired look...

Is it me or does it look like a vulva? Or maybe the Madonna or wait Jesus Christ!

So all this time what my guinea pigs were doing was art. My one eats carrots like corn on the cob and all you have left is a little sliver...

Actually, the gerbil isn't EATING the paper...it's shredding it. I used to have a whole colony of gerbils and know their habits well. They shred paper and the like to make bedding for their nests.

brian, the little bit that i know about you + now knowing that you owned a colony of gerbils... nah, maybe i don't really want to know.

I had lots of gerbils too over the years I was a kid, and it was AMAZING how fast they would chew up a toilet paper or paper towel roll...I always wondered how come they never got cramps in their jaws like I would when I chewed gum too long.

Reminds me of a book I once saw where this person allowed cats to shred furniture on purpose and then anylized it as if the it were a piece of art and cat were an artist. As if the cat had a cognitive thought in it's little kitty head. You know what the cat was thinking when it was shredding the couch? Must....shred....couch....must...shred...couch...must...piss...on...couch...

I love cats... they taste like chicken.

I haven't thought of it in a while, but the previous comment reminded me of the Twilight Zone episode To Serve Man.

Probably pretty popular in Texas too since it probably doesn't mention evolution.
If you want a copy, here it is.

Was it necessary to shoot him 5 times after they pinned him? (Bear with me, it's not an angry question, I was just wondering) I could see it if they thought he would have pulled a trigger while still alive. Plus, he ran. If he was innocent, why did he run? I read that the police will use deadly force in order to save lives. If I were the cops there, I probably would have reacted the same. He was wearing suspicious clothing, he ran into the subway, and the threats and bombings going on in London and places elsewhere in the world.
What a horrible age we live in. I only hope it gets better.

As far as I'm concerned they can flush all the bibles and korans they want but never, ever destroy a science book....or porn.
