Cody the Howling Dog
I was waiting for my hot dog at the hot dog place.
The hot dog place hosts a farcically large television screen running a deafening and endless stream of excruciating daytime programming (they seem particularly fond of “judge” shows and programs about the mechanics of plastic surgery).
It was while watching the unavoidable TV in the hot dog place that I learned not simply that Anderson Cooper apparently co-hosts a talk show with an over-caffeinated lady who yells a lot (Buh?), but that there exists a popular internet video of a small dog that screams like a person who is being tortured.
The dog and its animal companion were guests on Anderson Cooper’s television program.
The yelly co-host lady tried, to no avail, to make the dog scream. Then, the titular Anderson Cooper emerged from behind the Talk Show Panel Desk to tentatively pet the extremely nervous but, alas, non-screaming dog.
Like I say. Excruciating.
Nevertheless, as I exited the hot dog place, chili dog in hand, I knew that I had learned many things in the preceding eight minutes.
Perhaps most importantly, I learned that there exists a popular internet video of a small dog that screams like a person who is being tortured.
Which is, admittedly, awesome.
