Black Dog of the Apocalypse

Copyright Imagecsnafu photo header


Remember the Canadian program about a dog who travelled from town to town, from city to city, solving problems, making kids happy and catching the bad guys called “The Littlest Hobo”? This dog would be in the version made for HBO about a canine with mental health issues and an addiction to rough sex with squirrels, driving his Death Car from town-to-town in a halfhearted search for redemption but leaving everything in flames. Fuck yeah, I’d totally watch.


Technical Stuff: Mostly I just walked out of the grocery store, saw the car and, as I was walking past, got freaked out by the dog just sitting there… like he was waiting for a squirrel to throw into his trunk. After that it all came down to me turning my Kodak C533 pocket digital camera on, setting it on “Automatic”, pointing it at the car and pressing the button. The flash went off. I should be teaching this stuff.


I think each episode would end with some rough dog-on-squirrel action, and a catch phrase… something like “you just got boned”, then the dog would get into his Death Car and drive away. Or something. I’m pretty sure Kevin Bacon or Steve Buscemi would co-star. Probably as a mechanic, or a squirrel pimp.

    This is the funniest thing I’ve seen all week. Damn I’m cracked up. You SHOULD be teaching this shit. LOL.

    Thanks, I needed that!

    Thanks Kitty, and Zoom, those are exactly the kind of responses I’m constantly in need of.

    …by the way, I think the dog is wearing a turtleneck. Dogs: unable to coordinate their clothes with the weather.

    And the link is to video clip of The Littlest Hobo featuring Megan Follows, who later starred for, like, forever as Anne of Green Gables. So the only way there could be more Canadian culture packed into five minutes would be if they were all wearing skates and bitching about government policy.

    I’m bookmarking this post because it is just that funny.

    …well damn, now I’m expecting NBC to call with an offer, so don’t be afraid to spread my brilliance around to your friends and family. Would it be too obvious to have the theme song be Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”? Or maybe “Dog Eat Dog” from AC/DC…

    Thanks Kitty.

    ps: the more I look at it, the funnier the fact it’s a VW becomes.

    Deep Purple has a song about a car with the lyrics, “Nobody’s gonna take my car, I’m gonna drive to the ground” or something like that. It would be the perfect song for this photo.
