Dog Demands Funnies Section
A tie up in the kitchen this morning caused considerable delays in getting to work, and now word is coming through that the culprit was the dog.
“She wouldn’t budge until someone gave her a copy of the comics,” said one eye witness. ”She already had the sports and business sections, so she was just being greedy.”
According to reports, the standoff lasted a full 20 minutes until the funny pages could be found, and by that time the coffee had gone cold. Brewing another pot added an additional 10-15 minutes to this morning’s commute. Earlier this month the dog caused a similar delay after allegedly knocking an entire bowl of kibble on the floor. She is due in living room court this Saturday to answer a summons for that incident.
There has been no word yet on any possible punishment being meted out for this morning’s debacle, though police say no arrest is likely forthcoming.
