Maybe you’ve been told that you have an appetite for money.
Or if you’re like me, you’ve been warned that the kind of foods that you enjoy are bad for you.
Well it turns out you have something in common with…of all things…a turtle!!
(Bangkok) — A sea turtle with a taste for pennies is recovering after having more than 900 coins removed from her stomach. Vets in Thailand removed the coins from the 25-year-old turtle in a seven-hour surgery. The sea turtle, nicknamed “Piggy Bank,” swallowed the pennies tossed in her pond for good luck over the years. It’s believed tossing coins into a turtle pond will lead to a longer life for the thrower. Vets are urging people to stop the practice, calling it a form of animal torture.
So the moral of the story is money doesn’t buy happiness…I suppose.
That’s the way I see it.
