Using war to sell your monitor lizards. Unbelievable? Check this out.
 
This makes me sick. Using a war, the death of your fellow human beings as a marketing ploy? I've seen some pretty cheesy marketing with reptiles. After all reptile people for the most part are just hobbyists trying to sell their babies or excess stock. Yet guys like this who have been known to try to sell animals to people they are owned by, using descriptions such as this... well is simply offensive and plainly pisses me off... anyhow here's the ad.

Well, they ARE on the axis of Evil list...I don't see what is so bad about it. It's actually kind of funny.

I thought it was really going to be something like a soldier using his/her status of active duty in the war to promote his/her web site or something worse - maybe someone here at home really exploiting someone who is over there. A name like Axis of Evil Monitors is kind of sorry, or laughable , or maybe even neat - that of course is my opinion on what is could be conceived as. Then again you see it as something much more serious and that is your opinion. I don't know, maybe look at it again and it won't seem so bad, after all it is not so much an exploitation of the war as it is of the term "Axis of Evil", is it.
All the best,
Glenn B;)
