Two Legs Lifted

After a steady diet of word warfare I thought a change was in order. I got this from the Houston Chronicle, “DVD pirates have dogged pursuers sniffing for phonies”.

“The two black Labradors are the world's first disc-sniffing dogs, working at ports and other locations around the globe to help stem the flow of pirated DVDs, CDs and video games into America. They've already located millions of bogus discs and so angered Malaysian pirates that a $30,000 bounty was placed on their hides.”

According to the article these dogs are not film critics, paws down for real stinkers while lifting a leg, so to speak, on future Oscar candidates. Here’s a hint for purchasing suspected pirated DVDs, if it has a yellow stain on the corner; leave it alone.

My daughter reminded me that tomorrow is Star Wars Celebration Day, “May the 4th be with you.” She gets that from her father’s side of the family.

Last on my list of light hearted enjoyment would have to be a YouTube video that I’m stealing from
Liberal Common Sense. Lisa Rene found how important engineers and their relations with cats are. So there you have it, dogs and cats proving once again we can’t live with out them. ( If the embedded link doesn't show, use the one in the title bar )
