Pick your pet

Poor Georgie, he looks genuinely distressed at what happened.

He should stick to cats.

They always land on their feet.

How did this man ever breed?

I think his PR handlers have been watching a lot of Farrelly brothers movies, especially 'Something About Mary' and are shooting for the 20 year old guy market.
Nothing's funnier to that demographic than to keep hurting a defensless animal. Just watch; in about a week they'll have Barney in a full body-cast.

yeah right 02.Sep.2003 11:20

Barney is ful fledged radical, black bloc, as evidenced by his black mask!

Leave the guy alone! Everyone makes mistakes. You've never dropped something before? Not Likely. He's got a hard job, give him a break for pete's sake!

Tough Job 05.Sep.2003 07:54


Yeah, leave the poor guy alone - he's got foreign countrys to bomb and justifications to fabricate.

Let s/he who repeats herself repeat after me:
War = casting "stones" that end up with lots of people (ours and "theirs") dead
Causing death = killing
"Thou shalt not kill" sound familiar?

Iraq is one fight WE started. We're the bully in the world schoolyard today. And that so many lives are in the grip of a man who can barely keep hold of one pooch? Sorry you can't see the humor, but that's one hell of a joke... on us all.

There is only one reason he dropped the dog. It's a subliminal message to America. He clearly dropped that dog because he's black.

I have had a Scotty for 14 years and I've never EVER dropped him...or choked on a pretzel!.....what a ditz.
