This one hurts. If we needed any more proof that American ingenuity is waning, this is it.
See the above picture? Look at the adorable ads. Now notice the website address in those ads: Hotels.nl
NL? Ummm, that's a Dutch website. It is not an American website. That means that the Dutch--people fond of wooden clogs--beat us in exploiting animals to increase market share. If anyone's going to exploit animals, it should be us, as in U.S.
And of course businesses here will rush out to advertise on other farm animals, but the point is that we didn't do it first.
I'm going to go cry now.
