Manic Monday

Mo's word for Manic Monday is EXPLOSION. But usually he allows variations of the word, eh, Mo? How about EXPLODING?

ding dog causes crematorium blaze

Posted Thu Jan 3, 2008 7:36am AEDT

An exploding dog has been blamed for an overheating chimney which sparked an alert at a Darwin pet crematorium last night.

Emergency services were called to the crematorium after a passing motorist reported the premises were on fire. Three fire trucks and a police car investigated a reported 'red glow' coming from the chimney flue. Authorities confirmed flames were coming out of the flue and called the proprietor.

He revealed that a frozen dead dog in the furnace was the cause of the overheating chimney, as frozen dogs sometimes explode when cremated.

Exploding dog Syndrome

Exploding Dog Syndrome (EDS), also known as Puppy-go-boom, is a terrible disease in which the dog's intestinal gasses (dog farts), rapidly build up until there is enough methane to create a large explosion, the color of said explosion is determined by what the dog has eaten recently.

Symptoms may include:

  • Rapid expansion of the cannine's abdomen
  • sudden and large appetite for human hair
  • large chunks of speeding dog meat
  • total disregard for any website but
  • faces of nearby humans turn red
  • Drumrolls are hearable
  • head appears to be smaller

I'm going to have to keep a closer eye on our beloved furball. He's been known to toot with the best of them. But he's so cute that we cut him some slack. I doubt we'd be as understanding if he were lighting stuff up in the process :)

Hey, wanted to let you know that I selected your caption as the winner of last week's Caption This contest on my blog, Written Inc. I hope you'll come back this week to play again.

This reminds me of my daughter's book, Walter The Farting Dog. This is one of my favorite books. It's too funny. They actually have a whole series of them now. *LOL*

Great post, Teach.

I read Uncyclopedia on any given subject as a way to unwind a bit.

BushCo got me down? Look him up on Uncyclopedia - the sheer insane parodies of him is out of this world.
Upset about the blind idiocy about Religion in general? Look it up on Uncyclopedia and giggle at the army of Jesi (everything from Baby Jesus to Ultra Jesus...from Zombie Jesus to Raptor Jesus. Trust me, its a hoot!).

Yeah, you can find just about anything to laugh at or about on that site. Some stuff is better than others, but still it's great.

Exploding dog at the crematorium? That would cause such an outcry here. Imagine sending your pet there and then having it explode!? Horrible.

TopChamp said...

Travis said...

Awwwww...poor frozen puppy.

Happy MM!
