Me and my friend were having this debate today, when we saw that the circus was in town. They use lions and elephants etc. He said that he didnt believe that it was right to use these animals for show and thought that its wrong.

I dunno about you guys but in my opinion if the animals in a circus are treated with love and care and good conditions then its alright, I see no problem.

What do you guys think?
Poll coming.

ANIMALS LIE DOWN.
that's just what they do.
there's probably humans doing the same thing.
quit being so paranoid.

If it wasn't for the circus those lions and elephants wouldn't have a job. Would you rather have them living on the street, begging for coins?

You people disgust me.

The zoo animals are the stupid ones that weren't smart enough to get away.. kinda like how the dumb people end up working at McDonalds.. they're just too dumb to do nething else.. it's not cruelty.
I step up to da mic. Bust a rhyme about my hoes, tippin' on fo' fo's.. and someone shoots me in the face. Because rap is stupid.

I remember when I was really young, I had a wet dream in which i was being dragged along an urban countryside by a pickup truck.

Don't ask me I have no idea how the hell it happened.

And a big "STFU" for you.


I work at McDonalds, yet in my exams i got all the highest grades.
Its hard to get a part time job (in the evenings) doing computer programming or something.

Dont be such a narrow minded asshole.

(Believe it or not, it's quite a good job. I have a laugh, and the managers here are decent.)

Animals in the circus are kind of pointless now. I'm not particularly against it, but I think it worked better when there were no zoos, and people couldn't take a couple of hours plane trip to see exotic animals and such.

If Disney has taught me anything it's that circus elephants can drop acid, so it's not all bad.

why do you think the animals are so angry there?

if they were treated right they would be happy, but they are all angry so how can you say they are treated right?

the only circus that should be allowed is the ones just with people in. acrobats, contoursionists, etc....

To elaborate, rap shows, emo shows, and reality tv.

It was liquor. Dumbo just can't hold his alcohol. And apparently even though it was dilluted with the water, and he's huge.. Liquor makes elephants trip.

That movie was made only like.. two years after acid was made. So, I guess it could be possible that someone put it in there.

How about I introduce the theory of Natural Selection to this thread!

The elephant in the circus/zoo is there because evolution has chosen to remove him/her from the game by putting him in captivity. Pity for him he's forced to entertain me, but thats just too bad.

If they start to physically abuse Mr Elephant, who for legal purposes shall be called Brian, I no longer find this acceptable, as it is gratuitous violence for personal entertainment.

So I'm giving it a jein, if you understand what I mean (if you don't, yes and no).

First of all it's /thread newb.. stupid 08ers..
Secondly natural selection explains how the strong survive and the weak die.. not if it's morally right for animals to be in a circus.
If google says jein isn't a word.. then it isn't plz do not include it in your post.
If you'd wait like 30 minutes to post again so I don't have to read your bs before I go to sleep that'd be great thanks.

Ok you win.

Jein is German slang btw.

It is kinda like natural selection, I was just trying to continue discussion.

\End. I wasn't trying to end the thread or anything I just put end there, no need to be abusive.

Most circuses treat their animals with abuse. How else would they do those tricks?

Seriously, circuses shouldn't be a place for animals.

Yeah. I had to practically kill my dog to get him to learn how to sit and shake hands. It can't be done with just treats or anything.

And the way they treat their clowns is just shameful.
