I love the monkey. At the end he's like "Fuck all y'all, for real. I'm leaving."

I believe this violates the Prime Directive.

The first dog was really cute. He was thinking, "After this one they'll let me eat them! Ok, this one! Maybe this one...I give up."

I can't imagine the training involved in the second dog. Wow.

I have a cattle dog that lets me play the 'stay' game with her; where I have her stand with her front paws off the ground, put stuff on her head, make her wait, and then snap my fingers and watch her catch it out of the air.

Problem is that she's treacherously smart and she learned that if she really slowly tilts her head, as if she is trying to hear something in a different room, the treat will slide off and then, once it hits the floor, it's fair game. Afterwards she always looks at me like "what? I didn't want the food to escape..."

I somehow doubt that she would let me get even a fraction of that food on her head.

I just figured that it was really sleepy.

That first dog was cute because it was clearly wrestling with its conscience. It was experiencing the kind of epic inner struggle that dogs would make the subject of epic poems if they wrote poetry. (Maybe they do, against trees.) The second dog was either a sap or asleep.

I felt bad about laughing, but that didn't stop me from laughing so hard that my chest hurts.

My dog has only this to say:

There was a time. A time of tooth and claw. Of scent and paw. A time when my wolf ancestors ruled the plains and mountains. We ran down all the great beasts and we made a feast of their flesh. A time when your pathetic monkey kind dared not slip from the trees lest you fall into our white flashing jaws of death.

At night we sang our songs so that the gods knew our names. While you hid from the dark only to whisper your fears high in the branches. Now. You have usurped us with your monkey chatter and your clever machines. It's true. Yes.

But. Now you pick up our shit.

Japanese animals train their 'owners' to lay out vast banquets by simply sitting there and drooling!

Topsy-turvy Japan, where right is left, up is down, and cats is cheezburger!

Great find, spec80.

My next punk rock band will be named "Chimp in a Gumby Shirt".
First album? "Banana Igloo".

Oh...and that was excellent! Thanks spec80!

I imagine I could do something similar with Dick Cheney.

And human souls.

I saw this today and my first thought was: "Man, I can't WAIT to get home and try this on the dog!"

Hell yeah paddysat!

Aaaw, the first dog is making me pout. I would have just given in and thrown all the treats at him/her for being so adorable!

Reminds me of Dooce's schtick with her dog Chuck. She's always putting things on that poor dog.

some of these humans really deserve to be bitten for torturing that poor lab in such a mean way.

Of course you don't want to push it too far, payback is a bitch.

Oh my god did you see how much the lab was drooling?! Poor little pupster. (Sad but cute.)

Funny, annaramma.... happened just down the road from me, too.

I smell an uprising!!
posted by paddysat at 4:58 PM on March 13, 2008


Oh yes, they are gathering strength.
posted by annaramma at 5:25 PM on March 13, 2008


Poor little pupster.

Are you kidding? Look at all those meat strips he got!

(Needless to say, no cat would allow that sort of assault on their dignity.)

Are you sure about that?

Well, it finally happened. A freelance client finally yelled at me for watching youtube. I guess you really can't pretend to be working your hardest when you're staring at a dog covered in milkbones. Lesson learned.
