I'm Not as Happy as I Look

I can't say I'm a fan of the idea of alligators being farmed en masse and then slaughtered so that their heads can be turned into a curiosity item to line shelves, and their skin into purses and boots. The only upside is that at least they're not depleting the wild population for such a trivial purpose.

 

If you really think about it, this head was once alive, on something that was then butchered so that someone could have the head sitting on a desk. I think we have better uses of our time than that. I will admit that the head is interesting and intriguing, but to mass "produce" them in such a way seems a little primitive for our "advanced" species.
