Of COURSE I think that the very suggestion of “Paris for President” (as opposed to really delightful ideas/jokes, like Murs para Presidente or McCain 4 Prez) is abominable. It’s not even funny. NOT EVEN FUNNY.

What is it about Japan and poodles? You may remember Diana’s hilarious post “Some Women Are Dogs” (it’s worth another look), and also that fake news story circulating a month ago about thousands of Japanese buying poodles over the internet and not realizing that they were sheep (thanks to Ty for that tip). The story itself was a hoax, but not before lots of people got their digs in on those key-razy Japs–they’re so gullible! they’re so absurd! they’re so wack…they must be retahded!
Apparently, the poodle is the 8th most popular breed in Japan. The breed is sure to get a bump in popularity after Smash, a Japanese-born French Poodle, took best in show last week at the World Dog Show in Mexico City.
Yesterday, gonzo artist and animal activist Mark McGowan ate a minced-and-seasoned Corgi, (Queen Elizabeth’s dog of choice) live on the radio in protest of Her Majesty’s fox hunt. Yoko Ono happened to be on board as well, and took a bite of the naturally-deceased pup to aid the fight.
2) Was Her Majesty listening?
3) Thanks, Yoko.
4) Fox hunting is certainly tired.
5) Dog eating, Mark? Take it from me, you have opened yourself up to a lifetime of highly exhausting jokes. I do not envy you.
Reuters reported today that China publicly refuted a widespread rumor that the country has been growing bananas containing a virus similar to SARS.
“‘It is purely a rumour and it is impossible for bananas to contain SARS-like viruses,’ the Agriculture Ministry said, referring to text messages some cell phone users had received.
‘The spreaders of the false information either have inadequate relevant scientific knowledge or have ulterior motives,’ it said, adding police had been asked to investigate.
The rumour comes at a time when food products from China have come under scrutiny around the world after a spate of safety breaches involving toxins in products from pet food to toothpaste.”
Oh jeeze. We’ve spent the last handful of decades dealing with the dog eating jokes. are we going to spend the next one dealing with the poison jokes? I mean, if one can make a joke about poison. I’m sure Ann Coulter can help out.
A report was issued on Thursday that a bounty was offered to kill Lucky and Flo, the two black Labs on loan from the Motion Picture Association of America that have famously helped sniff out almost a million illegal discs in Southeast Asia.
”The dogs are a genuine threat to the pirated disc syndicates, thus the instruction to eliminate them,” Firdaus Zakaria, the enforcement director of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, was quoted as saying.
Err… I mean, at least the threats were not to “filet and satay them, and serve them over rice.” Right?
