Yorkshire And London Are Two Different Places

Britney Spears has apparently joined the trend of buying Yorkshire Terriers, a trend which I* spotted years ago when I purchased mine.

Of course, in an attempt to show that she actually understands what nation these dogs are typically associated with, she named the dog “London”. I don’t know if anyone bothered to explain to her that London and Yorkshire are two completely different cities, about 200 miles apart? It’s like going to someone’s house where they want to impress you and serve steak, but give you Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese as a side dish…

Besides, I don’t think Britney’s dog could ever be as cute as Guinness anyway…


* By saying “I” spotted the trend, I’m taking credit for my wife, who actually knows and cares about trends… If it had been my choice, I’d probably have gone down to the pound and picked up a mutt…

  1. You will take back your slanderous comments about Kraft Macaroni & Cheese immediately or face my wrath. Although, I must say that I do prefer Velveeta Shells & Cheese, I assume you were meaning to disparage Mac’n'Cheese as a whole. That I will not stand for. A pox upon your hifalutin’ house.

  3. Because of this post, I stopped at Albertson’s on the way home from work and grabbed a couple of boxes of Shells & Cheese. I wanted the kind with bacon bits in it, but they didn’t have it. Such is life. Now I must get back to boiling water and starting the grill for my NY strip.

  4. Nick, are you going to polish that off with a box of wine?

    Lucy, anytime between tomorrow and the next 4 weeks or so… Official date is Aug 15 or Aug 2, depending on whether you believe the calendar or ultrasound (respectively). I’m guessing it will be sooner, rather than later.
