pirates

We nominate this for strangest valentine ever: neither the words nor the picture make any sense or have much of anything to do with valentine-ism. But fortunately, we're ahead of ourselves; maybe tomorrow, when it's really Valentine's Day, we can do a little better.

I have it on good authority (from a six-year-old....) that pictures of a dog dressed as two dogs or two pirates or two monkeys, carrying a present or a treasure chest or a box of bananas, have been around the intertubes for so long that they're real yawners now.

They never got to my eyeballs till this weekend, presumably because I don't frequent the cutting-edge neighborhoods of the web. I'm old, after all, and out of it. But I'm not too old to recognize a meme worth spreading around once I finally see it.

In this context, however, it may be worth noting that if I tried to put a costume like this on my dog, he'd pee all over it.
