Visors for pets [via Mr. Pants] Does this really need an explanation?

Right. How stylish and sophisticated would you feel with a stupid sun visor on? "Jeeves, pull the car around, would you? Oh, and get me my Hawaiian-flowered sun visor, please. Buffy and I are going to the club, and I want to look my best." Please.

This is totally old news ... I used to show dogs and I remember people having stupid pet clothes ten years ago.

Ten years ago? I've seen home movies of my grandmother with her dog wearing stupid clothes in the 1950s.

My dogs both hate getting their heads wet. The rest of their bodies they don't care about, but their heads should be Dry At All Times. Consequently, when they must go out in the rain, they wear baby-sized rainhats. They look really dumb, but their heads do not get rained upon, and this is what's important to them. So, sometimes there's a practical side to putting stupid clothes on our companion animals.

But I agree, the Hawaiian print sun visor is just beyond the pale.

The reason "best In Show" was so funny is that many pet people really are like that. I suspect that companies marketing products to this demographic have riotously funny development meeting where they take the silliest idea anyone can think of and then put it on the shelves.

Hawaiian print sun visor? It'll sell like hot cakes.

Why stop there?

or, if you are feeling a little more rambunctious, live it up with a woman who, I'm guessing, has serious emotional problems that can only be cured by humiliating monkeys. I'm not saying that's such a bad thing, because I like humilating monkeys as much if not more than the next guy. It also kind of looks like her hair wants to chase the monkeys around the room.

You know, when I was five I liked to dress up the cat in my doll clothes. My mom would help me. Now I tell that to people and they act like I tortured the cat. OK she didn't enjoy it, but we always took the clothes off pretty quickly (didn't want them to get dragged through the litter box) Now why is it sick to dress up a cat, but putting a doggie visor on is ok?

Coz nobody has sex with cats.

You're right zztzed

You wouldn't want ol' Fido staging a corporate takeover from his PDA now would you? Mostly they'd probably just download doggie porn all day.

My dog has a Redskins jersey. Its only worn for 16 Sundays, does that make it less wrong? :)

While people are animals, animals are not people.

Get a life, people.

Reminds me of the parrot browser news story that was going around a while ago. Did a little research and found that it was an MIT Media Lab project (big surprise). The researcher, Ben Resner, has a page with links to pdf files about several animal projects.
