Okay, so if you read this you know how I like odd numbers and spending habits of Americans, it just makes me laugh and think about what is really important to us. Well, here's a new one.
Pets. Now, I have a pet. He's a bunny. I like him. But as much as I love him I also understand he's a rabbit. Yet here in America, a new study has found that we (just the United States) spent $47.7 billion on pets last year.
47 billion?! That's enough to end world hunger twice! With change! Just one country.
(If you want the study, it's at http://www.gadling.com/2010/05/19/pet-travel/?icid=main|hp-desktop|dl6|link5|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gadling.com%2F2010%2F05%2F19%2Fpet-travel%2F).
Just something to think about...
