A curious message?

Yesterday I cycled passed the site of a “soon-to-open” pet superstore.  I noticed that Pets at Home use the strap-line “where pets come first”: which struck me as a rather curious piece of sexual etiquette for a retailer to be espousing.  Talking of “spousing”, this is perilously close to animal husbandry and its even more taboo (and almost never mentioned) cousin, animal wifery.

I am aware that the participants at Crufts are commonly referred to as “man’s best friend”, but this friendship should remain (like the five regular solids) platonic.  A cube or octahedron may seem like your bestest chum, but they are never going to take the relationship to the next level.  I presume regular polyhedra are afraid of commitment…
