Last night, coming home from the club of which I was holding up the walls, I may or may not have encountered a talking dog, these are the questions that I asked it:
What are dogs?
Dogs are essentially bigger, non-feline cats who behave differently from cats and hate cats.
What do dogs eat?
Their own feces, dog food and anything.
Do dogs like the taste of dog food?
No. In fact, the only reason dogs ever tried dog food was because their buddy Josh dared them to. They keep eating it to this day because they don’t want to look like pussies in front of Josh.
What does dog food taste like?
Not bad, actually.
So, you’ve tried it?
No…this isn’t about me. Next question.
Where do dogs come from?
The store, genius.
..Are you mad at me?
It’s just – you made me feel pretty stupid back there with the whole dog food thing…I’m sorry I snapped at you.
I’m sorry, too. Buds?
How big do dogs get?
The biggest dog on record was over 7 feet tall, however, it later turned out to be several dogs stacked on top of each other trying to get into an R-rated movie.
How long do dogs live?
Dogs rarely make it to 17 years of age, which is why they have to sneak into R-rated movies
How many types of dog are there?
Three. Big dogs and small dogs.
You just said there were three types of dog but then only listed two – why?
You call me on my shit and I like that about you. There are three types of dog: big dog, small dog and Cool Dog.
What are “Cool” Dogs?
Popularized in the 1980s, Cool Dogs are bred to ride skateboards, wear sunglasses and keep sexy bikini babes company while their husbands are away on business or at war. They’ve also been used to sell beer and attitude T’s with slogans about not being a morning person.
Oh, like “Big Dogs!” I remember those!
That’s not a question.
Sorry. How did dogs become domesticated?
Dogs were forced to become domesticated when their whole family went on vacation to France for Christmas and accidentally left them behind. Out of sheer necessity, they learned to do laundry, buy groceries and fend off robbers with a series of clever booby-traps.
Isn’t that that just the plot of Home Alone?
Yes, but with DOGS!
Why do some dogs become cops?
Because they got picked on in high school.
My friend Josh recently asked me if I had any “updog”. What’s updog?
Not much, dog, what’s up with you? LOL.
Is president Obama’s dog, Bo, the president of dogs?
No. Being the dog of a sitting U.S. president does not guarantee you the dog presidency. The current President of Dogs is Michael Dukakis’s border collie, Chips.
Is he also a democrat?
SHE is a staunch Republican…Oh, what, does that shock you?
Hey, how do you know so much about dogs anyway?
[Bark. Bark, bark]
I knew it! You’re a dog!
That’s not a question.
The conversation went on for clearly several more hours, before I found myself curled up to a Post office box on the side of the street. There was no sign of the talking dog. It was an awkward walk home.
