I would say that if a dog's so stupid that it jumps into a pond, and is swarmed by a flock of angry geese, that it deserves to die.

That pond's not to far from my rat hole. And, with this hot weather, a dip sounds pretty good. Except that it leaves my fur all matted and nasty smelling.

Greetings from Graton! There are a lot of dogs in ponds. There is a law that says there should be dogs, geese, cats, dander, tights, sand, poo, sox and stinx in ponds. The law was passed ovbernight by the legislature of the whatsis. This proves that they are all Morons from Outer Space that cannot digest their food until it has sunk and then floated in a scum pond, as is the case on their home planet. that is all. there is a restaurant near downtown that has a chili pot that has a sign on it that warns against standing close,'cause something in that chili might just reach out and grab you and drag you down in there. Whatever it is it will be running for a seat next year, and will win with teaparty help. The chili's fate following that election is unknown at this moment.

Thanks. Your nonsensical blather makes my nonsensical blather look pretty good, by comparison.

I like to set the bar real low, and surround myself with losers. That way, I, uh, come out looking like the least loserish of the bunch.

The Finnish make exceptional rifles.
