So, Michael Vick is out of prison and according to the New York Times,
Vick has said he wants to work with the Humane Society of the United States on a program aimed at eradicating dogfighting among urban teens, said Wayne Pacelle, the society president. Pacelle said on Tuesday that he recently met with Vick at the federal prison in Leavenworth. Vick requested the meeting, one of his attorneys said.
Am I the only person who finds this hilarious?
Michael Vick is one of the last people I’d let around stray dogs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you have to love dogs in order to work with the Humane Society. But I don’t think you should have been actively involved in torturing and killing them. Shouldn’t that get your job application moved to the circular file?
And what exactly is he going to say to these kids?
“Um, hi, listen. If you ever get a multimillion dollar football contract, don’t blow it by also operating a multimillion dollar dog fighting ring with your friends from back home. Because when you get caught, people will be pissed off.”
“Um, oh, I’m supposed to talk to you about your dog fighting. Um, yeah, well, I’ve been working at the Humane Society and they have some awesome bait dogs you can get if you pretend like you want a pet.”
Or did he somehow magically transform into a person who doesn’t believe in abusing dogs?
