That's racist!BLACK DOGS HAVE NAMES LIKE HOPEY, WHEREAS WHITE DOGS ARE OLD AND CONFUSED: For your consideration, here are the front and back covers of an elitist anti-Christian magazine called Nature. [Gawker]

Does this mean McCain and Obama are going to sniff each others’ asses at the next debate?

grendel October 2, 2008 at 4:05 pm

Something about “you can’t teach an old dog how to answer questions on teh Teevee”

dutchie October 2, 2008 at 4:06 pm

Is it just me or does McCain look kinda yellow in that cover?

Perhaps his stay in the Hanoi Hilton caused changes other than inability to use technology and a crabby disposition?


TGY October 2, 2008 at 4:06 pm

That is, like, damned funny.

I’d rather not apply human traits to a valuable food source for the coming apocalypse thank you.

So this means we should RFID John McCain so we can find him if he wanders out of the house in his bathrobe?

The tan one on the back cover makes me think of Cindy for some reason

[re=118887]ihasasad[/re]: there’s actually an awesome picture of Cindy looking exactly like that, but i can’t find it on the tubes. Someone, please help! She has on a blue dress and – aw, fuck it! – she looks just like that dog. Please find.

The black dog’s facial expression is one of wisdom, empathy and steady leadership.

The white dog seems to be confused and possibly defecating.

[re=118879]Special Agent Jack Mehoff[/re]: I don’t think McCain will taste that good–too tough and grisley

Awesome! I used to work at Nature, this is their best cover ever!

A friend of mine adopted a dark brown dog from a family in Arkansas. They also had the dog’s light brown litter mate up for adoption. The dogs were named “Buckwheat” and “Alfalfa,” respectively. For reals.

[re=118919]Josh Fruhlinger[/re]: I knew you’d weigh in on this one… it’s too good a visual for you to ignore.

WhatTheHeck October 2, 2008 at 4:28 pm

One dog looks studley and the other, neutered… on both covers

Scooter October 2, 2008 at 4:29 pm

Black Dog is my ringtone! White Dog is just white noise.

wilmawonker October 2, 2008 at 4:52 pm

[re=118871]dutchie[/re]: yeah, he’s a lab.

widestanceromancer October 2, 2008 at 5:04 pm

I refuse to accept McCain calling himself The Butterscotch Maverick.

Is jaundice a symptom of teh norovirus sickness?

Now that the liberal media has invoked Led Zeppelin, the race is essentially over.

commiegirl October 2, 2008 at 5:40 pm

Okay, that is fucking ADORABLE.

The layout editor deserves a raise. Page design while high is really working for ya, buddy. :)

[re=118856]Monkey[/re]: According to that norovirus in G’town, I think there’s enough ass sniffing going on in DC.

Nature podcasts are aweseome. All the readers sound like Harry Potter characters.

In a similar vein, last weekend my local newspaper stated, in a column on pets and animals that are up for adoption, that black dogs and cats are harder to find homes for than white and lighter colored ones. ‘Course we are in the South, so…….

Latest probabilities:

Black Lab 83.8% probability of victory
