I’m not usually sympathetic to “endangered species” (unless they’re human) but in this case, I admit I’m ready to do something. The axolotl is a type of salamander that spends its whole life in its larval form. And now they say that it is endangered (there are only around 1000 of them left).
But that’s not what moves me. What moves me is that he obviously doesn’t care. Look at him. He says, “What, me worry? Don’t worry, be happy!” So, I’m officially starting a “Save the Axolotl Society” (SAS) and you can join with me to help save this very pleasant and good humored little salamander for a small fee of only $1,000 per year (ok, it may seem a tad steep, but think about it, it’s only a dollar for each one of these little guys — a small price to pay to save such a nice little creature, right? And, on top of that you will have the great blessing of feeling good about yourself because you care about little, happy-faced creatures — unlike the rest of those thoughtless slobs at work and in your neighborhood. And who can put a price on that, right?).
So, who’s with me?
(oh, and please make out your checks to me personally — I’ll pass them along to the Society, and in return, you will receive our esteem and eternal gratitude)
