Dead puppies... aren't much fun...

There used to be a song played on the Dr. Demento show, and it was called "Dead Puppies."* Here's a sampling of the lyrics:

Dead puppies
Dead puppies
Dead puppies aren't much fun
They don't come when you call
They don't chase squirrels at all
Dead puppies aren't much fun

Well, apparently, some people think that dead puppies ARE fairly useful. I thought about saving this link for the Friday Why Files... but I think this goes WAY beyond a simple "WHY." In fact, it's more like a "WTF, mate?!?"

"A woman angry that her new puppy had died pushed her way into a dog breeder's home and repeatedly hit her on the head with the dead Chihuahua."

If you're too lazy to follow the link, here's the scoop: she was mad that the puppy died, so she wanted to return it and get another one (a live one, preferrably). An altercation ensued with the breeder, which led to the customer deciding that beating the breeder over the head with a dead puppy would be... fun. Apparently.

*Don't send me nasty emails about listing lyrics to this song... I didn't write it. Plus, I have a chihuahua. And he's not dead. Nor am I hitting anyone on the head with him.

Can we be sure the dog wasn't just resting?

Breeder: What's,uh...What's wrong with it?
Customer: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it!
Breeder: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting.

Haaaa. Did you ever read the thing about dead monkeys? Google "I like monkeys"... you won't be sorry.

Way to not hit anyone with your dog, Grumpy!

When I was in Germany I used to listen to Dr. Demento on Sunday nights on AFN radio. Dead Puppies...that's some funny stuff.

Dr. Demento was never as demented as real life.

Some people are just such a$$hole$.

I read this story yesterday and I almost posted something about it. Sick. What a freako.

othur-me: that's an interesting way to look at it. Sounds like the Monty Python parrot sketch. ;-)

red: charred monkeys aren't much fun, then? That sounds like a piece one of my former students wrote. Eeek.

-r-: my little chihuahua is too ferocious to hit anyone with. He loves me, but not too many other people. And that's why I love him!!

jaek: I used to listen to his show when I was a kid. Sometimes, I'd fall asleep before it came on the radio though. Boo!

ludi: maybe Guru could figure that into one of his comics. haha

goldennib: you're absolutely right... in fact, Dr. D might be the sanest man on the planet.

paisley: it does make you wonder, doesn't it? I still vote that we're all smarter than everyone else. heh

Am I a terrible person for finding this kind of...horrifyingly funny? I just get a cartoon-like mental image.

gg: no, you're not terrible at all. I posted it, because I found it horrifyingly funny. ;-)
