The originator of badly-burned/ham-on-face dog explains himself and is quoted at Snopes, which gives a big FALSE to the rumor that the dog's face was burned.
Discussed yesterday on this blog at "Millions Of Prayers Go Out To Dog Afflicted With Ham On Face."
ADDED: The expression is "lo and behold," not "low and behold." It's a Bob Dylan song, "Lo and Behold":
“What’s the matter, Molly, dear? What’s the matter with your mound?”AND: "Lo" is a very old interjection, going all the way back to "Beowulf." It just means look. So "lo and behold" means look and see. Here's how Tennessee Williams used it in "Streetcar Named Desire":
“What’s it to ya, Moby Dick? This is chicken town!”
Lo and behold! Lo and behold! Lookin’ for my lo and behold
Get me outa here, my dear man!
"You come in here and sprinkle the place with powder and spray perfume and cover the light-bulb with a paper lantern, and lo and behold the place has turned into Egypt and you are the Queen of the Nile!"Now just say that in your best Marlon Brando voice. Put some ham on your face and talk like Marlon Brando.
