Public radio has lots of real news, spa little fun stuff is fine. CNN, on the other hand, is nothing but celebrity fluff and other mindless crud.

If you're Woody Johnson, your mutt is named Matt Sanchez.

As someone named Max, my name has been popular in the dog world as long as I've been alive. My neighbors had a St. Bernard puppy named Max and it was very confusing when we were both playing outside.

Lola, for those who can't figure out what sex their dog is.

You know, Max, I can't help but think that we have may have tampered with the fragile inner workings of this little spaceship we call Earth.

I have a hyperactive (but well-behaved) little rat-terrier named Max and a laid back rescue beagle-mutt named Sam.

That is all.

I own a mutt named Max, so I'm getting a kick. And a lick.

Pretty much this.

Dear Mr. Reader, your and your editors' lack of understanding of probabilities is possibly the most newsworthy aspect of this story.

If you own a dog in New York City, odds are it's NOT a mutt named Max.

Thank you for contributing to a culture nearly devoid of understanding of basic concepts of math and logic. You have done your part to make us all more stupid. Congratulations.

OBUMMER just wants us to register our dogs, so he can take them away.

That's not true! CNN also has Cialis advertisements.

Odds are that you can't write a single concrete definition for "odds are" that an absolute majority of people will agree with.

You're probably right. On the other hand, we could probably get a majority of people to agree that a less than 1% chance does not support the claim, "If you own a dog in New York City, odds are it's a mutt named Max."

If I lived in New York my dog would be a bird dog and it would be named The Donald.

Just kidding. It would be a toy asthma hound and it would be named Gramercy Park.

Just kidding. It would be a cockroach and it's name would be Splat!

Our first family dog back when I was four was a pitbull named Max. My mother said he ran away but she sent him to the pound.

There was an NYT article a few weeks ago about a dog club in nyc and the author's dog's name was Xanax.

Xanax.

It's actually Max, but he got his dog from Unitinu.

New Yorkers do not splat their cockroaches. They squish them.

/also, remember to pronounce the invisible a in between cock and roach.

"If you own a dog in New York City, odds are it's a mutt named Max."

This is no kind of a public service if they don't also tell me whether or not I own a dog in New York City. Don't keep me hanging, NPR.

I would guess there's about a 20% chance that any random NPR listener lives in the greater NYC area, and probably a 40% chance that they have lived there at one time or another.

/Just saying, as NPR listeners self-select for libby lib libs
//who in turn self-select for being edumacated East Coast urbanites
