Nice dog.

When did it become so common to give dogs people-type names? I'm guilty of this as well, having dogs named Nick and Ernie (both deceased, alas) but I don't remember this sort of thing in the 60's and 70's.

"Swing by the office and say hi. You can meet [co-worker]."
"No, can't meet anyone at the moment. Wearing an old t-shirt, no makeup, need to go clean the car, etc."
"Okay, come by and I'll just say hi."
"Okay!"

But it turned out that "I'll just say hi" meant "I'll just walk my co-worker out to the car to meet you so that he can be sure to see the messy car too." Eek!

Every pet should be named Hank.

"Every pet should be named Hank."

Yes, and if you want to be more formal, address him as "Mr. Williams".

Hi Hank.

DrMaturin said...

Our neighbor has a dog named Henry. They're more formal, I guess.

Hello Hank. I like the way your hind leg makes a 2.

Hank, did you know our chief executive said he's beginning to commence to start thinking about the onset of a genesis for the seed from the spore of the idea about the possibility of perhaps initiating an onset of considering the chance of pondering maybe a little bit arming Syrian rebels, float that idea out there and see if it's okay and fucking said so! Is that awesome or what?

Zero tolerance is zero thinking.

Well, yeah! Confirming the obvious. Dang kids today.

gerry said...

That looks like one cool dog.

Looks like an old character actor.

I love your comments. You make me laugh then you make me think. Obama makes me have an upset stomach.

@Madison Man:

Zero tolerance is based on the brilliant idea that if you never have discretion to make any judgment, then you can't be sued, as long as you blindly follow the rules. For people who don't mind enforcing stupid rules to reach unfair results, it's the Devil's Candy. You can see why this has special appeal to people in public education (administrators most of all). (Although golf tournament officials are not far behind.)

He is just adorable.

Our next door neighbor has a hound named Hank and a little Cairn named Brownie.

We have a Siberian whose proper name is Le Chein Nikita (use name Nikita, or just Kita), and a Borkie who is scruffy so we named her Tiffany (the double 'f')...

Hank is certainly handsome but I must ask the question "Why the long face Hank?"

Ann Althouse said...

"Hello Hank. I like the way your hind leg makes a 2."

I looked hard. Never saw a 2. But I did eventually see the face of a monkey demon.

I will now go get lost in the mountains in a effort to touch the clouds.

Hank looks like trouble. Something about the eyes. Watch your garbage.

Hello Hank.

I have an odd question... Does anyone have any idea at all why I would weigh 2 tenths of a pound less *after* my shower in the morning?

This is consistent. I've been dieting (and I've lost about 12 pounds) and I know you're not supposed to but I weigh myself every morning and my weight goes up and down by a pound or two, daily, and slowly works downward. One morning after I'd finally gotten into the 10's below what I'd been at, it went back up over that line, which was depressing, so for some reason I stood on the scale after my shower too.... and I was below the line again.

I thought... the scale is wonky... but I've been testing this every morning and consistently my weight is 1-2 tenths of a pound less after my shower than before.

So... why?

Freeman Hunt said...

How do you get that dirty between showers?

Just kidding. I have no idea. Interesting.

It is snowing in Arkansas. There is even accumulation on the ground.

Our two Bostons are named Franklin and Abigail. Franklin is the one who is missing, three weeks now. We all miss him.

I heard the Bloomberg pizza story was a hoax.

A joke, not a hoax. Some people find them funny.
