The Chinese Really Love Their Dogs (And Not To Eat, Wiseass)

October 28th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

First, the good news: The Chinese are no longer eating their dogs (almost)!

Hear that, Morrissey, ya prick?

A recent story from the NY Times, which loves to print pieces about how China is overcoming its barbarism one “civilized” step at a time–showing a particular affinity for “Chinglish” stories –reports that, although once banned, dogs have become increasingly popular as pets in recent years. The Times story tells tale (tail?) of status breeds, fancy canine day spas, and animal-protection laws becoming a phenomenon in China.

Now for the bad news: The Chinese embracing dogs-not-as-food idea has gone way too far.

I give you Lu Lu, the purse-carrying pooch from Henan Province:

As dlisted‘s Michael K. put it, “I mean, her pussy’s hanging out!

Also: if you’re going to make that poor dog carry a purse and walk on two legs, eff that janky teddy bear shit and get that girl some Chanel! Even a knockoff–and I know those haven’t been banned in China–would suffice.

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Boxer Floyd “It’s All Love” Mayweather

September 10th, 2010 | 7 comments | Posted by Jen

After Floyd Mayweather said publicly via Ustream last week that rival boxer Manny Pacquiao was a “little yellow chump” and a “faggot,” that Pacquiao could “make me a shrimp tempura roll” and “make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice,” and that once Mayweather finally fought him and beat him, he was going to “cook him with some cats and dogs”–paging Morrissey!– Mayweather quickly issued an apology, claiming he “was just having fun,” “It’s all love,” and he doesn’t have a “racist bone” in his body.

It’s all love: Mayweather in a sombrero and the colors of Mexico, before his 2007 Cinco de Mayo fight against Oscar de la Hoya

If we take Mayweather at his word, then we can only conclude:

  1. Mayweather thinks “little yellow chump” and “faggot” are terms of endearment
  2. Mayweather truly believes Manny Pacquiao moonlights as a Japanese chef
  3. Mayweather thinks eating cats and dogs, not to mention little yellow chumps, is normal
  4. Mayweather is very, very hungry
  5. Mayweather has a highly unique take on love
  6. Mayweather has not had an X-ray recently to monitor the presence of racist bones in his body
  7. Mayweather is a little bitch who’d rather trash Pacquiao behind a computer screen–[Perhaps you're more suited to blogging, Floyd? We're always looking for interns to make us sushi rolls, FYI.--Ed.]–than fight him in the ring

Heavy Petting

July 15th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Word on the street is that China is experiencing a massive pet boom: skyrocketing numbers of folks toting around their furry friends, millions of dollars worth of increased dog food consumption, and an explosion of animal specialty stores across the country.

In the States, Jen and I live in LA, and we are both happy/obsessed dog owners in a land of frivolous dog ownership. We’re surrounded by stores like “Puppies and Babies” and “Bitch and Hound” and “K9 Loft” that babysit dogs with mounted webcams and offer designer doggy athletic shoes and animal raincoats (for less than $400, wow!).

I live for animals in outfits. I adore animal mohawks. I actually think that many of our pet friends truly enjoy having a hoodie if their owner has a hoodie, a pedicure if their nails need a-trimming, doggy yoga if they’re not feeling centered, a cashmere sweater if they’re a skinny little thing that gets shivery.

But this shit?

It’s really fucked.

Really, it would be kinder to eat the poor little fuckers.

It’s a Dog Eat Dog World

I’m gonna make Dog Meat out of you

Sungnam, South Korea has been besieged of late by written protests and calls demanding that an online dog meat seller,, based in the city be closed. According to Chosun Ilbo,

sells “premium” and “standard” dog meat on the Internet. It features photos of the meat as well as cooking ideas and suggestions for spices and vegetables that go well with dog.

(sounds of vomiting)

Technically, the sale of dog meat is illegal in South Korea, but the law goes unenforced because, as Keum Seon-ran, president of the Korea Animal Protection Society, contends, “many former presidents enjoyed eating dog meat.”

My Belly Hurts

June 4th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

This jerkoff, aka Joey “Jaws” Chestnut (according to his Wikipedia page: a competitive eater from San Jose, California, currently ranked second in the world by the International Federation of Competitive Eating) just beat out 5-time world champion Takeru Kobayashi of Japan in the world’s most famous Hot Dog eating contest.

Says the San Jose Mercury News:

Joey Chestnut, 22, shattered the record held by Takeru Kobayashi of Japan by downing 59 1/2 “HDBs” – hot dogs and buns – during the Southwest Regional Hot Dog Eating Championship at the Arizona Mills Mall in suburban Tempe.

Kobayashi’s old record of 53 3/4 was set last year at Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, held at Coney Island in New York, said George Costos, who helps runs the regional contests for Nathan’s.

Chestnut placed second in last year’s world championships, consuming 52 hot dogs.

“He’s unbelievable – he just keeps on going,” said Ryan Nerz, who works for Major League Eating, which he describes as “a world governing board for all stomach-centric sports.”

‘These guys’ numbers have just been going up at a tremendous clip,’ Nerz said. “I always thought there was a limit – a limit to the human stomach and a limit to human willpower – but I guess not.”

Chestnut won a free trip to New York, a year’s supply of hot dogs and a $250 gift card to the mall.

Uh, I mean, I know I hate “Jaws” for bringing shame and dishonor to my man from Japan (“Second Place? FIRST LOSER!”) but… ultimately I might just be a little too worried about the fact that a governing board called MAJOR LEAGUE EATING exists to really care.

Can’t we just grab a chili-cheese 10-incher from Pink’s and call it a night?

Food for Thought

April 18th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

The NYT reported last week that a Chinese biotech plant may be responsible for melamine-contaminated pet food that caused deaths or illness in thousands of American housepets and resulted in a panicked national recall of pet food.

“XUZHOU, China, April 10 — Behind an unmarked gate in this booming city well north of Shanghai lies a large building at the heart of an investigation over tainted pet food that has killed at least 16 cats and dogs in the United States, sickened 12,000 and prompted a nationwide recall.

This is the property of the Xuzhou Anying Biologic Technology Development Company, a small agricultural products business that investigators have identified as the source of contaminated wheat gluten that was shipped to a major pet food supplier in the United States.

Some American regulators suspect there was deliberate mixing of substances. They are looking into the possibility that melamine, the chemical linked to the pets’ deaths, was mixed into the wheat gluten in China as a way to bolster the protein content, according to a person who was briefed on the investigation.”

Oh heavens, I’m crossing my fingers and hoping the rumors aren’t true. Mostly because of the fact that the incident would most certainly perforate agricultural trade between the States and China. But also because we’ve already suffered through decades of dog-eating jokes; I’m not sure I can handle the dog murder ones.

Dog the Bounty

March 22nd, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

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.

As The Associated Press reports:

”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?
