Attention pet owners

Especially owners of the kind of dog whose tails curl upward, exposing their little bung-holes for all to admire.  There’s a New Product that might be just the thing to give your pet a little privacy… “Rear Gear” Butt Covers!:

No, really:

They’re sold out right now, so this looks to be what the well-dressed pet will be wearing this spring.

    Do they make those in sizes MASSIVE enuff to hide ReformaTory MPs from public view?

  2. 2 psa Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    do they have one with the smiling face of stockwell day on it?

    I’m looking forward to removing these from plugged up intestines – just another foreign body ingestion waiting to happen. Is this fur reals?

  4. 4 balbulican Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    I don’t think it’s fur reals. All three butt plugs are in perfect focus, despite the different distances from the lens. Whimsical photoshopping.

    No Balb, it is unfortunately real. Creepy, butt real… :)

    Probably more useful for plumbers than dogs.

  7. 7 Bruce Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 5:13 am

    Ugh. Ok you know I have to ask, how are they attached?

  8. 8 JJ Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 10:20 am

    Yes, they are fur real.

    They are attached by little strings that go around the base of the tail.

    My dog would never put up with such a thing, but maybe she’s just picky.

  9. 9 Brian Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 11:11 am

    I can’t imagine any pet putting up with this.  Having a trap door banging on that furless region would make any pet stop, drop and lick.  Your dog sounds pretty reasonable, to me.

  10. 10 JJ Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 11:29 am

    My dog is fairly dumb, but she’s not dumb enough to put up with something tied to her tail and swatting her butt. She would have that thing off and torn to shreds in about 2 seconds.

  11. 11 Brian Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 12:19 pm

    Dumb maybe, but not dumb enough to put up with a pooper patter.

  12. 12 deBeauxOs Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    Might Brian be Jasper under a new Rear Gear Butt Cover?

  13. 13 JJ Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    deBeauxOs – No, Brian is not Jasper. He’s okay, for a wingnut ;) :lol:
    Cue Brian’s outraged response in 3…2…1…

  14. 14 Brian Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    ROTFLMAO… I guess the lack of response means you can’t “count” on me…

    Howard the Duck lives. (yes, I’m geeking)

    This product coming to you from the mindset of the people who have been brainbleached into finding animals ‘nekked’ and shameful in their nekkedity. Next up, animal burkas.

    Not just gnawing, but butt scooting will be involved in many tormented animals’ lives. not to mention…when said animal has defecated or whatever, doesn’t that pile of rejects from car-airfreshener oversupply automatically become a dangly waste catcher?

    The fact they appear to *be* cheap car air fresheners makes me also question the reality of this as a product, but I am reminded constantly of the attributed PT Barnum factor (known well to all advertising agencies) “no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public”. I wouldn’t doubt they *are* repurposed airfresheners, carrying the helpful hazard of impregnated artificial aromatics to irritate fido’s butthole.

    And you know that with such certainty how, again?

  17. 17 Frank Frink Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 4:04 pm

    Just a minor personal pedantic irritant… but, although popularly (mis)attributed to him, Barnum never said, “no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public”.

    The actual quote is: “No one in this world has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”

    And the source is H.L. Mencken.

    And you know that with such certainty how, again?

    Ummm…because they went through the trouble of designing, developing, producing and peddling a product whose only purpose is to hide the buttholes of animals? Just a guess.

  19. 19 Brian Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 9:50 pm

    A guess I have no problem with; guesses are necessary, since we can’t always get all the details. But this incessant, authoritative assignation of people’s motives with nothing to go on but a “snapshot” of how things are; not so much. That’s why I asked.

  20. 20 Dr. Prole Thursday, April 1, 2010 at 7:16 am

    Brian is coming here to scold people like a ninny your new hobby?

  21. 21 Brian Thursday, April 1, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Dr. Prole,

       That’s not it at all.  Rather, it’s this:  I have confidence that improved reasoning skills of the population at large — recognizing straw men, recognizing begging the question, recognizing false dilemmas, recognizing when someone is poisoning the wells — will be nothing but beneficial — very few people will be willing to be knowingly mislead.

       As things stand, people are routinely pushed around like snow by a snow plow by trickery by politicians, advocacy groups, crafty but slanted blogs, astro-turf and mainstream media (news and other) using just those sorts of false argument methods.

       Unfortunately, schools generally don’t teach how to think in any subject but math.  They teach what answers to give to questions through memorization, but they are thin on teaching how to derive answers.  Consequently, all around us are people who lack the skills to think.  Everywhere I go, at all times, I try to do my part to improve society, and society’s chances.

       I mean, look at how many people don’t know how to use punctuation (which is a form of thought organization, not a “quiz”), don’t know how to use capitalization or possessive apostrophes(evidences of organized thought), don’t know the difference between “their,” “there” & “they’re”, Between “then” & “than”, between compose v. comprise, don’t know how to spell, don’t understand the meaning of subjective and objective, don’t know when to use “him and me” v. “he and I,” don’t know when to use lay v. lie, and so on.  And these are just the foundational components of organized thinking and recognizing the meaning of what you read or hear.

       It appears that most people participating here are eager to make their world a better place.  This is part of my way of doing just that, and I am passionate about it.

  23. 23 Dr. Prole Friday, April 2, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Brian, your concern would probably be put to much better use at right wing blogs where grammar and punctuation are considered tools of the fascist elite. Or maybe you should go hang with some teabaggers. Their protest signs leave much to be desired in those areas, although I do deeply appreciate the unintentional hilarity of irony being bludgeoned to death.

  24. 24 Brian Saturday, April 3, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    [G]rammar and punctuation are considered tools of the fascist elite at right wing blogs?!? Frankly, I’m skeptical.

    Why, of all things, would I want to hang out with people who dip their scrotums into the mouths of others? What would that possibly have to do with me? I don’t even see why you would suggest it.

    But on a different note, I am a little surprised at your response. To tell you the truth Dr. Prole, I actually would have thought that your respect for sophistication (really, a minimum of sophistication, at that) would have been a little more, I don’t know: lively? active? functional? Guess I was wrong.

    Perhaps there’s a connection to be found between your lack of agreement that (minimal) cognitive sophistication is a good thing and to be desired, and your animosity toward me (owing to taking the political positions that you do) — who knows?

  25. 25 brebis noire Saturday, April 3, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    Brian: OK, I get it, you’re a contrarian. Congratulations. But if you’re aiming at improved punctuation, you could work on removing the many parenthetical asides from your paragraphs. They’re mildly annoying, and hinder fluid reading.

    Just sayin’. For the sake of making the world a better place, that is. :-)

  26. 26 Dr. Prole Sunday, April 4, 2010 at 7:44 am

    Brian, you talk like a sausage. And really, you make an awful lot of assumptions.

    Let me put my comment in terms that might be a little easier for you to understand: nobody here needs scolding or correction from the likes of you. Your super-fantastic command of the English language and self-serving need to correct others would be put to better use at blogs where there are actually lots of people who might benefit from that. If you are truly concerned with making the world a better place through being an online spelling/grammar/punctuation cop, then you should go where there is need. No animosity, just a suggestion.

    In other words, nobody likes a know-it-all.

  27. 27 Brian Sunday, April 4, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    brebis noire,

    Thanks. I realize I do that too much. As I try to put my thoughts down textually, that just seems to more accurately reflect my position. I realize it is bad writing, and I try to do less, but I’ll try even harder.

  28. 28 Brian Sunday, April 4, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    …you make an awful lot of assumptions.

    “…the likes of you.” (assumption; you don’t know me)
    “…self-serving need…” (assumption; You don’t know my needs)

    I’m just pointing out that everyone makes assumptions—I’m not terribly different from you or anyone else in that regard. Those listening receive these assumptions with no problems if they agree with the assumptions, and they chafe if they do not agree. Really, if the listener agrees with the assumptions they don’t even see them, usually.

    I’m not really a contrarian, I just disagree in large measure with many of the political and religious views of many here. That doesn’t seem a reason to go elsewhere to me though. I mean, after all, the phrase “preaching to the choir” has some meaning.

     

     

    brebis noire,

    This morning, as I was waking up, I was reflecting on what Dr. Prole had said [April 2, 2010 at 1:32 pm]. [It seems to me someone had said they were Dr. Prole's husband, so I’ll presume the pronoun “she.” My apologies if that is incorrect.]

    She had indicated that my concern was not well placed here, though I had not really expressed anything that “concern” has the right connotation for. She further alluded to the grammar, spelling and punctuation follies of tea partiers.

    As I thought about it, it started to appear that she held contempt for tea partiers, in part, BECAUSE OF THEIR POOR USE OF GRAMMAR SPELLING AND PUNCTUATION. (Sorry about shouting, I would rather underline, but don’t know how.)

    Now, if I have that right (which is a bit of an assumption), then she holds different standards for two different groups. It doesn’t seem excessively contrarian to hold that in disdain. I mean, if I presented such a model, I would be aggressively castigated here.

    And besides, I didn’t criticize anything that anyone had posted in my post of April 1, 2010 at 10:53 am, from a grammar (et al.) perspective, I was disagreeing with Dr.Prole asserting that I come here to scold, so Dr. Prole’s response to that seemed out of keeping with the point. It doesn’t seem overly contrarian to say “that’s not my point,” though the snippy way in which I did certainly could fit that characterization.

    Sure would be nice if there were a preview feature…
