rustypouch: I think it would be something like "I love lasagna."


I thought the first couple episodes were decent, but after that the show has catapulted in to full-on twisted awesomeness.

I'm 99% certain that the YDWS Fark cliche started with a story just like this back in the late 90's/early aughts.

From FArQ farkisms...

Your dog wants steak
This was tacked on to the end of an article about a Japanese device that allows you to communicate with your dog. The joke being anyone who has had a dog can tell you that dogs are not incredibly complex creatures. You can tell what they want just by looking at them.

Being in a family with a dog, and two kids and one adult (myself) with ADD, since seeing "Up!" that scene cracked us up and we constantly refer to 'Squirrel' moments.

mike_d85: Sure, but how would they understand us?  It's like we expect them to understand human languages or something.  Sure they pick up one or two verbal cues, but they aren't exactly travelling bards.  I think this would get more frustrating if a dog was spouting broken English at you, but couldn't understand the reply.

Also, maybe your dog is a dick who mutters smart-assed comments as he does things you ask him to.  You'd grow to hate him.


I had a Jack Russell. He was a dick. No question. But I'd love to hear what he had to say, at least for a bit.

Clifford D. Simak thought this up in 1952, in his sci-fi collection City.

Basically, before leaving Earth for good, humans give dogs speech synthesizers and robot companions.

Gross.  Feed that biatch a sandwich, stat... or get one of the Flintstones characters to play a tune on her ribs.

You know, the thing of it is, all I did was my daily Google search for Scandinavian technology news, and this was the first thing that popped up, so I submitted it.
