Another one I’ve had sitting in an open tab for quite a while. Trust me, it was worth the wait.
For the last five years or so, the campus of Colombia’s Diversified Technical Education Institute of Monterrey Casanare has been home to a sweet black dog named Negro. There, he serves as a guardian of sorts, keeping watch over things as students go about their studies.
In return, Negro is cared for by the school’s faculty, who provide him with food, water, attention and a safe place with them to pass the night.
But the dog has apparently decided that anything beyond that is up to him.
Early on in Negro’s tenure at the school, he came to be aware of the little store on campus where students gather to buy things on their breaks; sometimes they’d buy him cookies sold there.
This, evidently, is where the dog first learned about commerce — and decided to try it out himself.
“He would go to the store and watch the children give money and receive something in exchange,” teacher Angela Garcia Bernal told The Dodo. “Then one day, spontaneous, he appeared with a leaf in his mouth, wagging his tail and letting it be known that he wanted a cookie.”
As you might expect, after the dog realized his money literally grows on trees, it’s been a regular thing.
“He comes for cookies every day,” Gladys Barreto, a longtime store attendant, told The Dodo. “He always pays with a leaf. It is his daily purchase.”
From what I read elsewhere, apparently this canine supergenius scores his folding money from the same tree every time, the leaves of which more closely approximate Colombian currency in both color and size than those of other foliage types available to him.
Yes, there are pictures. Heck, there’s even video, and it’s awesome. Just stop calling ’em dumb animals, ‘kay? After all, Negro shows much more capacity for higher cognition and reason than “president” Fingerbang, or almost any other shitlib you could name.
Well that’s just damn neat. Dogs are smarter than a lot of people…
Well, at least the dog is not White. But how can they be permitted to call him “Negro?”
So it’s OK to use that word as long as you roll your “Rs”???
Negro means “Black” in Spanish and is still racist!
“…the word, which has been used to disparage black people in America”
BS of course. Most of the common names for groups of people are just fine, like negro. If that word offends negro’s it’s because they wish to be offended. There are certainly some slang terms that have a historic derogatory use, but negro isn’t one of them IMO.
Negro College Fund.
Doesn’t the NAACP use the N for Negro?
In this case, NAACP is “National”…
Ahhh yes, the CP is Colored People, something also verboten.
I reiterate. I wish the two dogs occupying the White House were running this Country.
Money may grow on trees for this one but at least there ARE a finite number of trees.
For the Fed and The Fed Gov pixels are infinite.
