And Now, an Important Self-Distancing Message From Arnold Schwarzenegger and His Amazing Pets

Arnold Schwarzenegger is many things. A bodybuilder, of course. An actor, obviously. A politician, as you know. He is also, of course, something of a health expert, as he’s probably among the top 20 or so healthiest people alive. So if Arnold’s staying indoors, you know it’s the right move.

What you may not know (at least, we didn’t) is that he is the owner of, uh, what appears to be a pet pony and a pet donkey named Whiskey and Lulu? And their friendship and camaraderie elevate this public service announcement to being perhaps the most wholesome Schwarzenegger movie in his entire career? In a very understandably scary time, we can once again count on the greatest action hero of them all to reassure us all with his sensible courage.

“We don’t go out. We don’t go to restaurants. We don’t do anything like that anymore,” Schwarzenegger says, sounding not a day older than the Conan the Barbarian days. “We just eat with Whiskey and with Lulu and we have a good time!” And how could you not? With friends like Whiskey and Lulu, why would you leave the house even in non-pandemic season?

“So much more fun than going out to restaurants,” Schwarzenegger says. Sure looks like it. Just watch.

Well, look, if you’d had Schwarzenegger’s life and resources, who’s to say you would not also invest in unconventional pets? Especially pets as sweet and sensible and Whiskey and Lulu.
