On Satire News Bits: Vol. 15

Because last week I did not provide a mid-week dose of satire, at least it’s back – but this time with a twist!

In the following earlier post, I used the archives at The Onion to provide a list of headlines about one topic – Congress. Meanwhile, I also asked for suggestions, and Alisha at Abtwixt came through with dogs. So I did my due diligence and below are past headlines from The Onion regarding our canine friends.

Which is your favorite? Any suggestions on a future theme? Enjoy… and thanks Alisha!

  1. I’m not sure about the “Seeing-Eye Dog Blowing Off Steam”. I guess I missed the joke. You could try the bandana one – while my current guy would just sit there and look sad (and he’s got a face that would make a bassett hound depressed), my former Australian Cattle Dog would LOVE to challenge you. You know, “Try to put that on me, and you’ll pull back a bloody stump!”. Great dog, sweet as a house dog, but definitely NOT a bandana dog! (Our Border Collie, on the other hand, had no dignity – you could’ve dressed him up in whole costumes, and he would have just sat there and smiled, wind whistling through his empty head. I loved him like a son, but he could play stupid SO well when he needed to! 😀 )

  2. These are just hilarious! I do remember the commercial so I just love “Family Dog Suspected Cause of Miniature Chuck-Wagon Disaster.” I can’t stop giggling over that one! I suppose you have to be a “certain age” to fully appreciate it. I also love the one about the Purina Bag. I must have a mind for remembering advertising! Good ones, Frank! Debra

    • Debra,
      Figuring only those of us of a certain age would remember those Chuck Wagon commercials, that’s why I linked to it … did you watch it? Meanwhile, glad you enjoyed these.

  3. Hi,
    Some great dog headlines:

    “New Dog Sick of Being Compared to Old One”
    I can understand his frustration, I am guilty of this, I compare my dog with our previous dog, it is not really fair, as our previous dog was a lot smarter. 😀

    “Dog Doesn’t Realize He Just Graduated”
    Well what on earth did he think the certificate was for?

    “Puppy Love Leads to Human Baby”
    I’m not going there. 🙂

    “Chinese Crested Dog’s Beautifully Descended Testicles Bring Divided Nation Together”
    I’m not going anywhere near this one either. 🙂

    “Dog Finds Absolutely Perfect Place to Shit”
    It is strange how dogs do this, and it never seems to be the place it should be. 😀

    So many good ones thanks for making me smile. I enjoyed Mags take on them too.” Not going there” she says. :+)

  5. I would add that in my household despite the best of efforts, our Pappy believes it is the top of the totem poll. No walk,you wont sleep. No playtime at night, you wont sleep. No food in the morning, you will hear lots of barks. Dogs actually rule the world.
