‘Scuse Me, But Haven’t We Met Before?

Tuesday, 7 June 2011

Dogs crack me up because they’re all jerks. Lovable jerks, for sure, but they’re still idiots, and they have no shame. Dogs just enjoy doing what dogs do.

Simple things amaze them. Every weekday you come home from work, and they’re ecstatic that you were able to find your way back on your own… again. When they hear a siren, they howl to help spread the alarm. Throw a snowball into a drift and they’ll spend 15 minutes looking for it before they realize that they’ve been had, and then they want you to do it again.

But dogs know how to play us as well. Sure Rover is happy to see you, licking your face and all… but he remembers where his tongue was a few minutes before, even if you didn’t see him doing it.

You’ve been Dog Pwnd.

[Update:  Plane emailed me and said the title of the post should have read “So What Are You Gonna Be IN for Halloween.”

I responded with “The Little Halloweener.” Any other captions we missed?]

“We need a statue…”

Sunday, 17 May 2009

“…so I’m commissioning you to create a lasting statue, one that represents our country’s honor, bravery and courage in the face of adversity.”
“How about a ferocious lion, fighting its way to freedom?”
“No. I want a goat.”
“A goat, sir?”
“Yes. A goat with a pike.”
“A goat holding a fish, sir?”
“No. A goat holding a pike, a lance.”
“A jousting goat, sir?”
“No. A goat just holding a lance, to show that we are peaceful at heart, yet are capable of defending ourselves should we need to.  And it’s got to be a Christian goat.”
“But sir, not all of our countrymen are Christians.”
“So include our flag, to unite us, and to recognize the Christians as well.”
“You got it.”


And it struck fear in the hearts of no one…
