dog condoms?
August 8, 2005 7:41 PM   Subscribe

Have you ever had one of those days where you can't decide whether you want to post about the recall of dog condoms or about the Russian mail order bride online service that tailors exclusively to amputee fetishists? I'm having that right now.

Seriously. Meat flavored dog condoms.

Seriously. Bullshit. A photoshopped Trojans box, no contact info.

The choking hazard stuff is pretty funny, though.

My favorite quote:

"Can I Train My Dog To Put It On Himself?

No, the dog will require human intervention each time he wishes to put on or take off a condom."

jonson: your name takes on a certain (meat flavoured) connotation today. But I guess that's just the kind of day you're having.

Seriously (somewhat): what in the world would lead to a meat flavoured condom for dogs- what dog is supposed to want that scent associated with its genitalia? I've never heard of canines engaging in oral sex (with each other- sure I've heard the urban myth).

I know... post both of them, with a second comment, and we'll all post two comments.

team lowkey - ahh, of course. You'd think I would have learned that lesson by now.

and with my 2nd comment... we're done.

The internet is wacky and stuff.

A dog condom would have to be flavored like poop or roadkill for any dog to be at all interested in it. But I love the idea of some freaked out homeowner trying to get a rubber on her Butchie before he mounts the neighbor's dog. Much better than the gaggle of women on milking machines I had before.

What was the other link about again?

My guess is on a hoax. Legitimate businesses have no need to hide their contact information via Whois.

Russian based dog-flavored amputee fetishists?

Amputee Russian mail order brides? I don't doubt that many of the people on either side of the amputee mail order bride business are decent people, but you can't help thinking that it would also attract an even lower rung of creepy losers, too.

Jonson, did you happen to get the idea for the Russion brides from Something Positive? Randy did a strip on it just a few days ago.

At least she won't run away on you.

That's awesome... no, I actually got the link off of a mailing list I'm on. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if the source of the strip is the same as the source for the mailing list, internet memes being what they are.

I was actually mulling Dr. James Dobson's account of belt-whipping his miniature Dachshund.

Damn, that Russian amputee bride site just pisses me off.

'Rowf! Rowf!'

I, for one, welcome....aw, forget it.

I hear that those mail order bride places don't usually deliver on the, uh, goods.

A friend of mine placed his order and anxiously awaited the delivery of his new wife. He waited, and waited, and waited some more.

Finally, he called and they told him (in heavily accented English), "The chick is in the mail."

Jeffbarr, your joke would have been better if it were a czech mail order bride service.

There's Norway I'd tell such an awful pun.

Not even to Sweden up a lover of awful puns.

I wouldn't touch any of those puns with a ten-foot Pole.

Aussie it's time for me to be Russian down there to Yank what Scot to be the worst punners in history away from their keyboards.

Iran to help, but the Greece on the floor caused me to Spain my ankle.

For shame. On all of us.

That last pun reminded me of this. (Embeded mpeg video).

So back on topic.... The dog condoms are probably a hoax, I'm thinkin. And why don't they give dogs vasectomies?

Okay, so the gallery was obviously written by someone without perfect English, but this one did make me laugh:
#12. Yana (RAK)
Date of birth: 1977.
Education: high school.
Occupation: peasant.
Doesn't speak English.
Using prosthetics.
