It's better than a drug dealer's head, I suppose.

"Cruelty" requires pain or harm.

Son of Thunder: "Cruelty" requires pain or harm.


What do you think this is doing to art?

Personally I think Mitch McConnell wouldn't look bad with one.  You could put it on his chest and make the background the control panel that was on Darth Vader's.

That's so arti......wait....WHAT!?!?!?

Cruelty is making people watch the videos. Of course, it would be just a cruel to strap an iPad to a human, and make the tortoise watch the result.

The only compromise is to fit patrons with tortioise suits, make them crawl around with iPads strapped to their shells.

not cruel but really useless? why not strap them on homeless people or something?

Why are the releasing this invasive species?  What if they escape?  Colorado will be overrun with Africanized turtles.

It doesn't even look like it's strapped on. It's just sitting on the tortoise's back with some kind of four-point stand. As long as the animal isn't struggling under the weight and is well fed for the service, I don't see how it's any different than putting a pack on the back of a donkey. Non-issue. And the fact that this is news gives way too much publicity to animal rights whackjobs.

Now that would be art!

Wouldn't that slow down the internet connection?  For faster internet wouldn't we want to put them on Cheetahs?
 
2014-08-07 10:31:20 AM  
It's not like the tortoises will go swimming with the iPads.

Animal rights whack jobs claim riding a horse or using a pack mule is animal abuse.

"Since when is animal abuse art? We must all rise and stop this now!! There is no excuse for this," Aspen native Lisbeth Oden wrote in a Change.org petition aimed at canceling the display. "Please stop this unnecessary exploitation of animals now and do the right thing by getting these iPad of (sic) the Tortoises' backs and make sure they are given to a sanctuary where they will never be abused like this again and put pressure on the artist to vow he will never do anything like this to any other animal ever again!"

Wow, emotionally hyperbolic peta like typing detected

I was watching the Show Ten Things You Dont Know About Abraham Lincoln and they had a story about when he was a kid he saw other kids putting hot coals on turtles shells to make them move faster and he kicked their asses and put the coals out. Now that was cruel to do to a turtle.

Now all the tortoises will want one.

I missed my true calling.  I should have been an "artist".  Put together two things that don't belong... profit!

Who would want to fark a tortoise?
 
2014-08-07 11:49:14 AM  
As long as the animals are not harmed by the iPads I am OK with this.

Is it possible to be cruel to a corpse?

I strapped a cell phone to a tortoise once...

Cost me $400 because of all the texts the bastard sent telling people he'd be late.
 
2014-08-07 02:07:33 PM  
Tortoise?  What's that?

Strap them on? Ok.

Drill mounting holes in their shells? No thanks.
