Insanity: Lady Postpones Wedding To Pay For Pet Lizard's Chemotherapy

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British woman said she had to postpone her wedding after spending more than $4,700 on chemotherapy for her pet lizard."

lizardLizzie Griffiths, 25, of London said she adopted George, her bearded dragon, last year and decided to postpone her wedding to Chris Fisher so she could spend their saved cash to treat the reptile`s cancer."


I love animals; there has never been a time in my adult life when I didn`t have at least one pet. When one of my beloved animals is sick, I get so worried that I can`t sleep. I wouldn`t think twice about spending $5,000 for an operation for my dog or cat, if it would save his life.

But you have to draw the line somewhere, and a lizard is a perfectly good place to draw the freaking line. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Lizzie is simply bonkers. It`s simply insane to spend thousands on chemotherapy for a lizard.

Lizzie, without consulting her partner (the boyfriend not the lizard), decided to spend their savings to treat the lizard.

I hereby nominate her boyfriend, Chris Fisher, as the most p-whipped man is the history of the United Kingdom. Fisher humbly states he understands that George will always be number one in Lizzie`s heart.

I pray that Fisher will never accidentally step on George and kill him; sweet Lizzie would kick him to the curb, and he would be lucky if she didn`t` kill him.

Fisher should grow a pair and leave his girlfriend. What kind of a man would be content to have his sweetheart love a lizard more than him?
