China has banned the serving of dog meat at Beijing restaurants that cater to spectators at the Olympics. I don’t care one way or the other, I just wanted an opportunity to pun.
Puns usually annoy me — except for my own. They’re like farts in that regard.
By the way, I used to tell everybody I ate dog while in the Philippines. It may or may not be true. Our outfit was in the field and we came upon some people cooking some kind of meat on a spit. That’s all I know for certain. It could have been goat, piglet, or any smallish mammal. Somehow the memory morphed into a story at some bull session.
Forgive me if I lied. Forgive me if I did eat dog. Forgive me for my pun. It’s my birthday.
