How progressive! Vox’s Dylan Matthews committed as ever to screwing the working class

This Poor Cat…Only In Eastern Europe. This Is Definitely Animal Cruelty!

Not to stereotype, but let’s be honest, there are a lot of crazy videos that come out of Eastern Europe. Granted, I’m sure an equal number of crazy videos are created in America and Western Europe. However, they don’t often get as much media traction as the ones from Russia and other former Soviet countries. Which is why when I came across the video below of a guy smoking cigarettes with his cat, I was hardly surprised…

How does he even get the cat to sit still for this?!

This is definitely a horrible case of animal cruelty. Animals can get lung cancer, too. And it’s not just from actually smoking themselves.

In fact, according to a study, cats who live in homes where someone smokes a pack of cigarettes or more every day are three times more likely to get cancer than cats in nonsmoking homes. Don’t ever subject your pets to this kind of cruelty.

The pharmacy chain formerly known as CVS has changed it’s name to CVS Health to “reflect its broader health care commitment and its expertise in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of health.”

Innovative? Hardly. What CVS really did was end the sale of tobacco products a month earlier than it announced last year and it is using that for a bunch of free publicity.

Like this official proclamation from the Press Secretary. Fancy:

Oh, wait. CVS still sells candy, chips, soda. . .and beer?

Don’t forget to use coupons and buy your booze in bulk!

Did CVS really do anything innovative to shape “the future of health”? Well, maybe the lines will be shorter:

LOL! Just kidding. You know that’s never going to happen!

Exit question: What does Occupy Wall Street have to say about the new name?
