One thing that really isn't cool though, is that there is a dog kennel owner in the U.K. named Mary Ellen Collis (pictured above) who was recently found guilty for abandoning 100 St. Bernards while she vacationed in Tenerife.

Right. So the next time I'm struggling to pay rent, I'll just flee to Spain so I can get my tan-on and forget about all my worries and responsibilities--that makes perfect sense.
