Don’t kick the dog or mop the floor with him

Lowe Bull in South Africa has fashioned a pair of new "Stop the abuse" ads for the Animal Anti-Cruelty League. This one imagines a dog as a soccer ball; another casts a very furry friend as a mop. (See larger images here and here at Ads of the World.) My view is: animals would mop the floor with humans and kick our asses with their unclipped hind claws if they only could. Dogs are the focus of this campaign, which is wise. Dogs, generally speaking, would have the decency to wait until they were hungry to consume us. Cats would kill us for sport.
