Go, Banthapug, go!
This is just glorious!
in other SW news - my gut tells me ford wants in on the action; he was probably waiting for lucas to step away from the movies before he'd return to it. also nothing beats more $$$
I thought this said bathaplug for a minute and was expecting a walking bathtub.
Pugs have distressing breathing difficulties.
In fact let me just point out my absolute loathing for people that breed animals for aesthetic purposes in spite of the frequently debilitating medical problems the process imposes upon the animal.
Seriously, you're causing pain and suffering for aesthetic reasons = that's evil
If you're going to breed animals do so to make them healthier and longer lived...
@DrAbraxas Probably, but hopefully the original characters will be there only in the form of grainy hologram images, force ghosts, or something else that can be CGIed into existence - the more of a break with everything else the better. I don't think I'm being bitter - a story can connect to other stories but if it doesn't stand on it's own it tends to quickly become a train wreck of concessions to past errors.
@Gallen_Dugall Huh, I've always wondered why my neighbors pug never stops wheezing and coughing, I thought it just had terrible allergies. You sir have me sad.
@Gallen_Dugall Have you ate pug before?
Also the thing that bothers me most about pugs are the eyes. And they will tear those damn things open. Then you have a pug with an eye hanging out of its already bug eyed head.
And now that that was said, the web comic Battlepug is awesome.
@Gallen_Dugall I like Boxers. That is all.
@zombies8myballs @Gallen_Dugall It tends to be the little dogs or those with weird faces (English bulldogs) that have the most problems due to their inefficient design thanks to man.
@Gallen_Dugall made me sad, made me sad...fuck
@vangald I'm pretty sure I ate dog while in Mexico, but I couldn't say what the breed was. Tasted a bit like Bison or well marinated goat (could have been goat) and so it was being passed off as cow - which it clearly wasn't since it was the wrong texture for a large animal.
Yeah, the smooshed in face look that judges find so attractive causes all sorts of problems for animals.
I've got cousins that run Pug rescue - for each critter that makes it into one of these shows there are a lot of animals not making the cut leaving them neglected at best and more often than not grossly mistreated - so viola, you get rescue groups dedicated to protecting them.
I'm opposed to animal shows.
@Lithroe @Gallen_Dugall I like boxer briefs.
@Lithroe Boxers are dogs bred for health and strength (Bulldog and Bullenbeisser if I recall) as hunting dogs and a good example of a positive breeding program. I understand that bad things happen sometime while trying to select for positive traits but to select traits that have a negative impact on an animals health is just horrible.
I have a Bombay, purebred for shows, but he didn't have the squished in face that's popular now-a-days (and causes endless sinus and dental trouble as well as making it difficult for them to drink water) so he spent the first two years of his life in a crate before being dropped off at one of the disposal centers they call "animal shelters". That's evil. Fortunately a rescue group found him and I found them.
@UncleShmalbert Pigeons were a major food source in the world for a good chunk of history. Easy to breed. Small and compact. And the breast makes for a really good meal. In fact I heard it said that the most common breed of pigeon in New York was not indigenous to north america and was brought by Jew and middle eastern immigrants as a cheap food source. Don't know how true that is but it makes for a fun story.
There are supposedly a couple different types of bugs that have more of a crab meat like flavor. I recall that from that show on the travel channel. The one with the bald guy who goes out of his way to eat exotic and strange foods.
@UncleShmalbert heck I'd eat my own arms if they were deep fried
Actually, that Tarantula was sort of cooked in some sort of frier, but there was some sort of caramelization thing that happened to it, which made it taste pretty good, despite the fact that I still couldn't quite get over the fact that I was eating a tarantula.
Also, did you know that Pidgeon is a dark meat?
@UncleShmalbert my understanding is that bugs all taste like puss and snot until you cook them at which point they taste like french fries cooked in motoroil
When I've had to eat bugs I never chew them so I wouldn't know
Havn't eaten dog, but would a Tarantula work?
@Gallen_Dugall @vangald That's exactly what happened, his tail is crooked.
@Lithroe @vangald the bones probably never set right
@Gallen_Dugall I don't know. I liked orangutan island.
@DrAbraxas @Gallen_Dugall To be fair you have to try them all before you can really compare them.
@DrAbraxas @vangald I did see that show with the woman the donkey and a greyhound.
Overrated by the way - it was just kind of gross and silly all at the same time.
@Gallen_Dugall @vangald this is TR - someone already ate dog I imagine and in more ways than one :D
@Gallen_Dugall @vangald My current dog is a Basset Hound, the original owner was a priest who bred for shows. He broke the dogs tail trying to keep it up for show. We got him after this occurred, still hates when anyone goes near his tail.
@Gallen_Dugall @vangald @Lithroe The man who invented boxers - the one true undergarment!.
@vangald @Lithroe all the support of briefs with all the comfort of boxers - it's a travesty that the person inventing such a thing hasn't been awarded a Nobel Prize - WHOSE RESPONSIBLE THIS?
Nerd news, humor and self-loathing.
