What if all animals were round?

Asked by MadMadMax (3402points) November 21st, 2013

Looks like another day here at Walmart, Micky D’s, all you can eat buffets and Bojangles.

Well that was fun. At first I assumed that I would easily be able to outrun any predatory beast, but then realized that I would likely be round as well.

So that makes it an even playing field again, except that the animals are much more entertaining to watch…

Seems like equally “round” is a hoot but evolutionarily (sp?) impossible.

MadMadMax's avatar

Does remind me of sitting at our local mall a few days ago to rest and crowd watching. I never realized how rare a bird I was. Round is an understatement.

They would have an overblown sense of selfimportance and try to conquer the world?

I am too lazy to check, but ‘evolutionarily’ looks right to me (AND is also fun to say).

And yeah, if they ever have a waddling event at the Olympics, we are going to CLEAN UP….

Horses or riders? Seems like everybody would just bounce.

@uberbatman: You’re welcome but I got it as one of a bunch family recipients from my son. He finds great stuff.

Dumpity-dump cowboys trying to lasso an 8-ft diameter steer, then tie-up those tiny flailing legs.

I’d pay to see that…

Oh dear God….Please let those be photo-shopped.

PLEASE let them be photo-shopped…..

MadMadMax's avatar

I don’t believe that horse is photo-shopped.

I have seen really fat animals in more recent years – I think it’s the feed. Same as us. We are what we eat.

PS the second link looks to me to be cgi cartoon image

That’s clearly a joke or maybe a social commentary!

Would be harder or easier for cats and dogs to clean their behinds?

MadMadMax's avatar

Somehow that doesn’t work for me.

The fat animals I just saw while Googling for that post are just plain sad.

What the hell are we doing? Oh my god.

OneBadApple's avatar

Sadder still, it is nobody’s fault…..and no one will ever be held accountable….

MadMadMax's avatar

The (pardon my pun) big picture includes all animals including humans and that is “somebody’s fault.”

OneBadApple's avatar

Of course it is. But….to a person….every food processing executive, greasy fries lover or over-loving pet owner will just shrug and say….“Not me”.

A lot of horse people would have to buy new girths for their saddles and hope they could straddle the beast. lol

MadMadMax's avatar

A big part of the problem is in the food – feed. So If corporations are people, hrumph, then it is “somebody’s” fault.

If you feed an animal a normal amount of food, but the food isn’t quite the same thing it was even 20 years ago, then is it the owner’s fault? The common person doesn’t have a veterinary degree.

Our food, their food, ain’t food.

Elton John’s lyrics would be way more relevant, “The Circle of Life”

Good luck being a round predator…

@glacial “works for that guy”

We don’t know if he was too slow and dead – it’s a picture.

Why in the world with the military accept someone who could probably apply for disability for obesity?
