Pitt’s Pampered Pets

gerbilsI read recently that Brad Pitt spent 50,000 pounds (the equivalent of about $75,000) building a racetrack for his kids’ gerbils (which probably makes them the most pampered pets in history, I’d imagine).

Pitt was defended in an article that described the pet palace, “It’s incredibly complex and cost a lot, but Brad’s more than happy with any activity that can combine his two passions – his kids and architecture.”

I don’t know about you, but it kind of rubs me the wrong way.  There are children starving to death around the world, and he spends over twice my annual salary on entertainment for rodents.

At the end of the day, it’s obviously his decision as to how he spends his money, and he will be held accountable for it one day.

Then again, so will I.
