Do YOU See the Humor?

Someone sent this to my Mom - It is supposed to be some kind of High-larious joke, but I don't get it:

The following was found posted very low on a refrigerator door:

Dear Dogs:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Placing a paw print or slobber in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king-sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however. Dogs can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years - canine attendance is not required.

The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell other dogs' butts. Kiss me first, then lick your own private parts. I cannot stress this enough.

Finally, in fairness, dear pets, I have posted the following message on the front door:


(1) They live here. You don't.
(2) If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it 'fur'-niture.
(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.

Remember, dogs are better than kids because they:

(1) eat less
(2) don't ask for money all the time
(3) are easier to train
(4) normally come when called (bribing with treats may be necessary)
(5) never ask to drive the car
(6) don't hang out with drug-using people
(7) don't smoke or drink
(8) don't want to wear your clothes
(9) don't have to buy the latest fashions
(10) don't need a gazillion dollars for college
(11) if they get pregnant, you can sell their children ....

I am now accepting rebuttals - please leave them in my comments!

I'll start: Racing on the stairs is absolutely vital, because if my owner is going downstairs, there is probably going to be a food opportunity, and I want to be first in line! And if she is going upstairs, the only way for me to get the best spot on the bed, is to beat her to it!

Hi, Bailey!
Your post made my mom laugh like crazy! I don't know why. Maybe she knows something about some of your points!
Thanks for sharing it!
Kisses and hugs

Moms are just weird sometimes, Lorenza - I have actually learned to roll my eyes at my Mom, which makes her laugh hysterically, and then give me big hugs!

I got this email the other day too! I thought it was pretty funny- I'm sure Luna didn't.

Bailey said...

I'm sure Luna didn't either - there's nothing funny about it!!

Thanks for visiting!

I am only stretching out to full extent on the bed to better keep my mom warm while she sleeps. =) She should not complain of that at all. =)

Hmph! There are some good points there, but in general, I just don't see the humor. My mom lets me kiss her any time. Hmph again!

And hmph once more!

Bailey said...

Exactly, Joey!

Exactly, Joey!

Hi Bailey!

I'm Diego and I don't like kisses. My Mom keeps trying to get me to kiss her but I'm standing my ground. I'm too busy bothering the furry things that live with us. Anyway, she gets enough kisses from my brother Rocky.

High Five,

Bailey said...

Another excellent point!

My Mom loves my kisses, and so we kiss all the time!

And she also lets me eat off her fork or spoon sometimes....

Hi Bailey,

My mommy says she agrees with this one:
"The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell other dogs' butts. Kiss me first, then lick your own private parts. I cannot stress this enough."

I say who cares! Everyone wants some love.
