Ice Dog

At the carnival, the Rotary Club threw out a large cooler of ice on the ground. The temp was above 100 and this very smart dog waddled over and plunked down right in the middle of it and laid there for at least 30 minutes. The only creature with any sense at the whole Watermelon Carnival.

Right after this photo was taken, Rex shoved the pooch off its perch and curled up on the patch of frozen comfort.

In minutes his snores set off car alarms and shattered every window in a 12 block radius, alerting the local national guard and constabulary. Children screamed, ladies fainted, and small animals fell onto their sides in paroxysms of sheer terror.

The day was saved by a perfectly aimed watermelon seed, spat from the lips of a fat kid with sticky fingers and a cotton candy moustache. With impeccable shot placement, the seed passed through the open maw of the sleeping Rex and lodged in his glottis, effectively putting a stop to the snoring.

Rex rolled, choking, off of the ice patch...clawing for air, beer, or a shot of Wild Turkey. The displaced pooch, with casual aplomb, replaced itself upon the throne of ice.

I was going to comment that it is hot here too, but I think I'll just say 'hilarious comment, Phillip.'

I would echo what Matt said, since I was going to comment about how hot and humid it was here as well.

I think Phillip wins the "Best Comment" prize for this post.

If I had that much fur I'd be telling him to scoot over.
