Default i feel bad

I was taking my brother to church the other day, when all of a sudden a little bunny rabbit jumped out in front of my car. Out of reflex I slammed on my brakes, the car started to go over the top of the rabbit, when I heard a loud THUD. I figured it just hit the under-carriage or something. So Thursday I pulled the car up into the driveway for my routine maintenance, and I looked down at the bumper, in that lower grille. What did I see? A rabbit jammed in between the hood release support and my radiator. Poor little guy hit so hard it dented the radiator. I was only going like 40.

Awwww....and Yuck! :(

If you're like most people, that makes you feel pretty sad. As jaded as we get about life and humor, the reality of killing a small animal with the car somehow strikes a chord.

I know, as anal as I am about my car, everyone was surprised I wasn't worrying about my car being messed up.

Huh, I've intentionally ran over a squirrel. One day I saw a squirrel crossing the street, it was in the opposite lane and there was no traffic so I swerved to try to hit it. I wasn't expecting to hit it but i did. Was I saddened, no the only thing I was sad about is that I didn't have a squirrel sticker to stick on the side of the car (like you see on tv)
That is just wrong!!

Fuel, Fuel, Fuel....<shakes head>...what am I going to do with you?

Don't get me wrong, I have killed squirrels and rabbits when I was hunting them and I've shot squirrels to try and keep them out of the bird feeder. Then I ate the meat and tanned the skins. It'* just the act of hitting them with a car that seems wrong to me...

Go figure...
