Scrappy



Lots of archetypical 1930s weirdness in this cartoon.

Dog-Fur Boots

Tecnica is still around, and still selling boots. But none lined with dog fur any more, as far as I can tell.

Ruff wedding

In 1994, guests at a wedding reception were expecting to see footage of the ceremony replayed. Instead they were treated to scenes of Derek Jeffrey in flagrante delicto with a dog, Ronnie. Because, oops, Jeffrey had lent his camcorder to a friend to video the wedding, but he accidentally left the wrong tape in the camcorder, and it didn't get fully taped over. He received a six-month suspended jail sentence for bestiality.

The whole scene sounds so outlandish that I suspected it might have been an urban legend reported as news. But Snopes confirms that the story is true.

Coffee For Dogs

Nordic entrepreneur Jakutyte is trying to launch a new product on Kickstarter. It's coffee for dogs. Or, as she's calling it, "Rooffee." She came up with that name, she said, by combining the words roots and coffee. (Surprised me it wasn't Wroof and coffee... but that would be Wrooffee.) She swears she didn't know there's a date-rape drug called roofies. She's posted an update on her Kickstarter page saying she's gonna change the name... but hasn't decided to what yet.

Her coffee for dogs doesn't actually contain any coffee. She says it's "a coffee type of drink made from Nordic wild roots containing no agricultural chemicals or pesticides, no caffeine, and no other nonsense." So it's actually brown liquid for dogs.

Wild and Wonderful

From the Wikipedia entry:

Dick Vosburgh of The Independent commented, "Critics found it hard to accept that it had taken six writers to fashion the wafer-thin tale of a jazz flautist whose marriage to a French film star is threatened by the jealous tricks of Monsieur Cognac, her neurotic, alcoholic French poodle."[5] In his obituary for Tony Curtis in 2010, Dave Kehr dismissed the film as "disastrous," noting that Curtis was rebuilding his reputation after an earlier affair with Kaufmann, his co-star in Wild and Wonderful, and subsequent divorce from Janet Leigh.
