Talking Back to basics at Crufts...

Quote:
CRUFTS, the world's biggest dog show, last night shrugged off recent controversies and went back to basics by awarding the top prize to one of those weird little dogs that looks like a deformed rodent.

Tosh is too kind. It sounds more like Howard Stern had covered Crufts. Nothing but .

That website is pretty raunchy isn't it?

The RSPCA comment was typical. But I'll bet it made a lot of sealyham owners furious enough to stop their donations.

An RSPCA spokesman said: "Why do they always give the prize to these weird, scary little mutants? What's wrong with a nice Labrador or a Spaniel with an ordinary name and nauseatingly disgusting character traits. Crufts is rubbish."

It was? In that case the humor must have gone completely over my head.

Please note that this is a family friendly forum and some of our members are children. Most of the language that was on that site was utterly inappropriate for children. There was also a disclaimer to the effect that the site is intended for an adult audience. As such the link was removed. It has nothing to do with humor or lack thereof, it has to do with appopriate content. Filthy language is not considered apppropriate content.
