Hmmm. Not sure I approve of this Confucius chappie, with his implied disrespect of the non-human species. I am guessing he failed to anticipate a future world in which dogs had their own blogs too...

We think he SHOULD have said MEN or SQUIRRELS.

Beasts or animals? A huge difference I think and in that we come to Bertie's and Frankie 'n' Ernie's answers. A beast can be in human form as well and is not good to know. An animal is something else entirely and we know they have huge respect for life, their surroundings and each other (and that includes teddies). So, even though I agree with Confucius (that chappie), he should have picked his words a bit more wisely...

Then again, what do I know?
