Stereo Nozzles

No photoshop here. These pups actually have stereo nozzles.

There is a rare breed of dog named the Double-Nosed Andean Tiger Hound, found in Bolivia, and no, I’m not making this up.

Someone named “Explorer Colonel John Blashford-Snell” found them, and I’m not making that up either.

Here’s mama:

Here’s sonny.

Apparently the Double-Nosed Andean Tiger Hound smells twice as good as most dogs and is capable of 3-dimensional scent detection.

But don’t take one for a ride. The dog gets confused and frustrated trying to put its head out of both car windows at the same time.

Okay, I made that last part up.

Shadenfelines

It’s so hot I saw a dog chasing a cat chasing a mouse, and they all were walking.
It’s so hot I saw two trees fighting over a dog.
It’s so hot that even Al Gore can’t explain it.
It’s so hot that the people who live in Thermal California are laughing at you.

Okay. It’s Hot. Get over it. Like these Cat Wannabes.

Meanwhile, here’s the Real Deal.
They’re not whining… just waiting.

Grover C. Shaible’s Contribution to the World

I hope that I shall never see
A raygun as in Figure 3;
For if I do I must decide,
To laugh at him, or run and hide.

I wouldn’t want this to be aimed in my direction. I don’t want my atoms dispersed and rearranged as little stinky catfood pellets, but Mr. Shaible scoffed at all the naysayers and went ahead to patent this evil Weapon of Mass Destruction in 1953.

More fascinating patents are archived in the Patent Room.

PBF Kicks Dead Brain Cells to Life

Perry Bible Fellowship is one of the cleverest single panel comic strips I’ve seen in a long time, online or off. For those of you with kids, there are a few of them that push the PG-13 boundary. It’s a “why didn’t I think of that?” kind of a strip… Mad Magazine meets National Lampoon as edited by Steven Wright.

U.S. Homeland Security Breach Thwarted

Douglas, AZ (Strutts News Services) — For the first time in recent memory, the U.S. government released details of the Homeland Security Virtual Border Fence in action. The virtual barrier was put to the test Thursday.

Two illegal aliens people lacking U.S. citizenship, attempted a breach before sunrise, but were stopped by the invisible barrier. They were arrested after breakfast, and released before lunch. At 4:33PM, they made their third and boldest attempt to cross, raising fists, with swords made of fomecore and acrylic paint.

Sister Starfire and husband Tor eluded authorities for several seconds before the “Virtual Screen Door” slammed shut right in their faces. Both were taken into custody again, and were sent to bed without supper.

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Collie Davis described the capture. “They didn’t look hispanic, and they both spoke fluent English. They kinda stood out, so we arrested them.”

Tor’s only comment: “I lost the Blue Orb of Power on my orc crusher. Otherwise, we would have made it. Can we get deported back to Eccleshall?”

Film at 11. Or not.
