Picture of the Day August 19, 2008

Good morning, Netizens...

In this morning's Picture of the Day we see what once might have been thought impossible, or at the very least improbable. Zoo visitors watch Arava, a disabled turtle, with a custom skateboard attached to her shell that helps her move, at the Biblical zoo in Jerusalem. Arava the disabled turtle is using her new set of wheels to get around in more ways than one. Officials at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo say the ten-year-old spurred tortoise has begun mating since being fitted with a custom skateboard to overcome paralysis of her hind legs.

See? Now we see the ultimate downfall of man. You give all the turtles skateboards and their minds just naturally turn to sex. Isn't that always the case?

Hmph. I seem to have lost track of the point I was about to make about Biblical zoos. I guess it might be a good thing at that.
