Cute overlord

Finally, a link from the Drudge Report that doesn't make want to kill myself: it's this article from the Orlando Sentinel titled "4-inch Lake County Chihuahua may be world's smallest dog."

That's 4.1 inches from foot to shoulder, but tiny is tiny. The owner, possibly an Elton John fan, named the dog "Dancer." In June he'll enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the smallest living dog. While allergic to dogs, I'm of the opinion that chihuahuas are fundamentally funny, so this one I find quite amusing.

My only concern? The inherent danger that comes when Dancer realizes that cuteness equals power. Once that happens, all bets are off. That dog might rule the world, and get another Guinness notice as tiniest leader, replacing Napoleon.

55 Fiction Friday runs the 40 in, well, 40.

Tired of the troubles his young clients caused, the sports agent tried something different: he built androids with the freakish athletic qualities the league coveted.

After a few years, his creations quit to start a robot army and enslave the human race. But the agent had so much on commissions that he'd retired by then.

Yes, but does the dog ever wear a hat?

It would have been a lot funnier if he did. But the photo gallery only shows him in a sweater.

Babies and toy dogs in hats = instant hilarity.

If not for the freakish attitudes of Chihuahuas, I could totally see myself having one, especially to carry around in a purse or something. I guess I gotta stick with babies for my amusement.
