How can no one have commented yet on a Corgi?

Don't miss the part at about 3:00.

@Conserve Libery:

Die, corgie, die!

[Will that do?]

Haven't seen one of those Carousels on a playground in some time. Assumed modern liability rules had made them all but extinct.

Particularly one of that vintage, design and metallic construction.

Are many left?

Notice that the dog isn't dizzy. He's staying in one place so that the world doesn't move.

@EDH

As children, we would get on them and try to spin them fast enough to achieve orbital velocity.(all children do this) Never quite got that fast, but we could dump you off quick enough. Terribly dangerous, yet no one got hurt, so yes, they probably are banned.

Corgi's ain't my favorite breed, but in a pinch, any dog'll do.

Poor corgis, they have practically no legs! If someone spins that and doggy falls off, those super-short corgi legs will never move fast enough to prevent a doggy rollover accident.

Wow! A carousel? They haven't removed it to save the children.

I learned a lot about physics on a carousel. Unfortunately, they removed it.

I saw one of those carousels for the first time in 15-20 years just yesterday. I was so amazed I took a picture, though I won't be able to upload it for a few days.

It was much smaller, maybe 6' across, with only three metal handrail loops, and even closer to the ground. Significantly, it was not in the U.S. but in Germany, in front of the Alte Pinakothek (pre-1800 art museum) in Munich. There were also a couple of very long teeter-totters, and some kind of rope nets you could get all tangle up in - horizontal and only 1-2 feet from the ground, but still looked like more fun than anything in a contemporary American playground.

I think I'm going to adopt that as my new epithet substitute, "Holy corgi on a carousel, what have you done?"
