I could do this last week but now I can't post a pic. Oh well wasn't that funny anyway.

Dunking that... thing... in a bucket of water would probably double its weight.

It's almost like a proto-form for the Warner Brothers "Gossamer" creature. Just add sneakers.

"03-10-03 12:22:52 PM MayoBoy
and who does't want to see David Bowie in tights?

MayoBoy raises hand."

Alright, after seeing Labyrinth - especially the scenes with Bowie and his gigantic package (shiver) convinced me 100% that I am a heterosexual male.

My wife on the other hand has different feelings about his Unit.

Damn, that is beyond ugly. My 10 week old German Shorthair puppy is bigger than that thing, and could probably kick its butt as well.

I totally feel justified now. I was sitting watching one of these things a few weeks ago with my brother, and I made a Fizzgig reference that nearly put him on the floor. Thank god we're not the only two who remember this.

Interesting side note: Senior year of college a few of us helped put together the list of movies for the Film Society to show. We pushed for this one, and it was just as cool on the big screen as I remember it in the theaters. Sweet. Maybe the coolest thing ever to happen at CWRU.

"Dark Crystal" is an even better movie if you skip the first few minutes, where they give away the story.

"Labyrinth" is also made better by the same method, but include most of the ending as well. In the beginning, Sara is a freaking psycho, dressing in costume, hanging out in the park, creating her own personal ren-fest. In the ending, everyone just kinda goes nuts.

"This is a lifetime ambition, you can't do any more. It is the highest accolade in the dog world. Danny will be taking a well-earned rest now, he cannot go any higher."

"Blah blah blah blah blah. Danny blah blah blah blah blah."

If i lived next door to this dog its ass would be full of BB's from my Daisy 7700.
2003-03-10 12:43:15 PM  
im all for animal rights and stuff. but i just want to kick that dog in the face and make it fly across the room, then shave that hair off. gaaaah. ugly.

Those dog show people are truley a strange bunch. I regularly go to a dog park with my two and the park rents out for some of these shows. It is a big park and the purebred owners have to walk through all of the normal dogs running free and playing. The regular crowd is ok, rarely any fights or poorly behaved dogs but these people tighten up on their leashes like white folk in the hood. Like our regular dogs will somehow taint theirs. too funny!

ALBERT, Have you been an abusive creep your whole life or is this something new for you?
2003-03-10 12:51:07 PM  
my applause to whomsoever recognized fizzgig from the dark crystal. obviously a true officionado of quality 80s..stuff
2003-03-10 12:51:57 PM  
Funny thing: these dogs were once trained to protect the Emperors of China...the Lion Dog.

Are we sure this isn't Tina Turner?

I always wondered what the Jawas looked like without the robes. Now I know.

My 10 week old German Shorthair puppy is bigger than that thing, and could probably kick its butt as well.

My guy's 2 now, but when he was 8 weeks old, he had a run in with the in-laws Carrin Terrier (who was roughly the same size, fully grown). About a year later, my guy almost ate him. Shook him around like a chew toy.

Just glad I'm not the only one who remembers FizzGig!
2003-03-10 01:38:24 PM  
Ok rednecks are the only ones who pride their own manhood on who's dog thier dog "whooped." My 22 can "whoop" all dogs on earth, so there. No more yappy dogs in my backyard.
2003-03-10 01:39:31 PM  
I haven't laughed so hard in a long time... And not in a mean way. That... creature is proof that God does indeed have a great sense of humor. Yet I feel the world is a better place for its existance.

And I suppose I shouldn't feel so bad that A)I loved the Fizzgig ref, and B)I also thought "Tribble!" when I saw it walk. At least one other person thought of it too.

Dog from Maaaaaaaarrrs! Dog from Maaaaaaaarrrs!

It's so ugly, someone should put it to sleep.

2003-03-10 02:11:29 PM  
Dear God! That's no dog!
It's a quite hairy tribble!
Please, someone, kill it.

When I was a teenager, my sister had on of these nasty little beasts. I hated that dog and he hated me. He knew when I would come home all shiat-faced and then he would strike. He knew that in the morning, I would come stumbling out of my room with a thunderous hangover and a p1ss b0ner so he would leave a steaming pile (you'd be surprised how much the little hairball could produce) strategically placed so I would step in it. I really, really hated that little bastard.

(Who the hell (besides me, that is) is lame enough to remember Fizzgig?):

I am, for one. That's definitely a dvd worth getting.
"We just want to drain your living essence!"
"Now that you have it you don't know what to do with it, hmm, nobody told you that, did they?"
"Wings? I don't have wings..." "Of course not - you're a boy."

ad nauseum
2003-03-10 02:36:30 PM  
Holy Jeebus! That's a dog? I wonder if they teased Danny's hair or if it came like that? My cat's hacked up prettier piles of hair.
2003-03-10 02:42:36 PM  
Look like someone stuck it in a dryer and forgot about him
2003-03-10 02:43:06 PM  
2 more Skeksis references just for good measure:
"Back off, spithead!"
"Ah, roast nebri. My favorite!"
2003-03-10 03:21:45 PM  
I think it is sort of cute in a really fuzzy sort of way. I wouldn't want to own one though--too many medical problems and way too much fur to have to brush.

My cat's named Fizzgig...

I never cared for those kinds of dogs. Give me a Weimeraner any day.
2003-03-10 08:20:22 PM  
photoshop! photoshop!
2003-03-10 09:40:43 PM  
Yay Fizzgigg!

2003-03-10 09:48:46 PM  
Each dog is judged by criteria specific to that breed.
The people who are obsessive, I mean dedicated enough to make a dog that will win "Best Of Show" tend to breed those yappy little dogs.
People who want what was called above "a real dog" should get a mutt.
2003-03-10 09:56:07 PM  
Although this thread is ead, I would like to clear something up.

I own and have owned several copies of The DarkCrystal. I think it was a great movie and a great example of why real light looks better than CGI light any day of the week. 80's fantasy movies kicked ass. Jim Henson is one of my biggest heroes.

But the Fizzgig ref was still superlatively geeky, c'mon.

Several years ago there was a breeders association that turned down AKC recognition. Poodles used to be hunting dogs. Pekingese used to guard the Emporer of China*. Border Collies used to herd. Basically, if you'd want to ruin your breed, turning them into mindless, in-bred cattle, go for AKC recognition.

* as noted above....

MY LONG LOST SISTER!!!! She looks just like me mum.
2003-03-17 08:37:38 PM  
I had a bad case of the crufts once. Got some shots for it, and knocked that shiznit right on out.

Yeah, I'm late.
