Love makes people do crazy things. That’s an established fact. So we really can’t judge Glenn Close’s character for killing her lover’s daughter’s pet rabbit, then putting it a stew. What we can judge her for is failing to skin the rabbit before making stew with it. That’s just gross. There would be rabbit fur in the stew. I mean, that’s not just bad cooking, that’s a lack of common sense.
Sometimes you need to make someone an un-refusable offer. And when you find yourself needing to really sell that offer, sometimes you need to decapitate a racehorse. Don’t blame me, I’m just the messenger.
It’s like a really, really, really effective Post-It Note.
Note: Killing an animal only serves as an effective message if the recipients aren’t complete morons. But even if the recipients are morons, it’s still fun to hurt the animal in question.
