While the image just says Florida, this is in my experience – admittedly long outdated – a thing mostly limited to South Florida. It is, however, not just snarkilicious. This really happens upon occasion. Or, at least, it used to. 😆
In point of fact, Hunter is a far more devout Crystal Methodist than Creepy Uncle Joe is a Catholic. Then again, Joe’s views on abortion and his apostasy may have a lot to do with Hunter’s “religious rights.” He may just not want any more of Hunter’s bastard by-blows showing up. 😉
It’s equal parts funny and sad for me to say, but Florida – They need signs like that. And yeah, I was born and raised mostly in central Florida, the home of Florida Man and one of the epicenters of “Hold My Beer!” Believe me, given what I saw done and did myself, I can honestly say that signs like this were and are needed! 😆
With, at this time, 18 states and the District of Columbia (DC) – OK! DC is a moot point since, insofar as I know, Krampus doesn’t eat brownies – having fully legalized marijuana sales and use for both medical and recreational purposes, there’s a whole new Christmas risk. 😉
It’s only going to take one bad act or one innocent mistake to wreck Christmas morning for literally 100s of millions of people. 😮 C’mon! Even if you refuse to think of owls and other predators, think of the children!
So, for the love of all things Good, please secure your brownies so your kids aren’t traumatized and all those other kids disappointed and disillusioned.
Back in 2014, Colorado completely legalized the use, sale, and growing of marijuana, the latter both by individuals and by commercial/agricultural concerns. This was hailed as a landmark in “progress,” both by the ever-drug-loving Leftists and many Libertarian sorts. And, indeed, there seems to have been little, if any, human damage or negative consequences caused by Colorado’s drug experiment.
But What About The Ecological Consequences?
With marijuana now growing all around The Centennial State, it follows that mice, rats, voles, rabbits, and various varieties of squirrels will be eating the seeds and some of the vegetation. This would both end up concentrating the cannabinoids in those prey species’ tissues, and make them both more unaware and sluggish. Hence, those rodents and similar prey animals would be easier for various predators to catch and consume.
So yeah! Stoner owls – owls both primarily subsisting upon small, terrestrial prey and being a major predator thereof – look likely to be an unforeseen, probably negative, ecological consequence of Colorado’s legalization of the use and growing of marijuana.
So… Stoned owls. That’ll be “fun.” 😛
