2003-04-17 06:20:27 PM  
And all along I thought those things were only useful as toliet brushes. Silly me.
2003-04-17 06:21:27 PM

And, given no friction, I could pull billions of pounds and I only weigh 165.

Now, if they gave the amount of actual force he was using to get the sled moving and pull it, then I might be impressed.

No I wouldn't. It's a toy poodle. A yappy rat with half the intelligence.

You can find some bizzare stuff on google without even trying.

I swear I've seen that exact same poster in House of 1000 Corpses Phenylalanine .
2003-04-17 06:29:03 PM  
FatherG That's a Bouvier des Flandres, not a Poodle.
2003-04-17 06:29:42 PM  
I tried to find a poodle but failed Khazar-Khum. Does this mean I have to turn in my google card?

Reminds me of winter's stupidest "sport." Skijoring.

Here's the The International Weight Pull Association website. Didn't see a section for poodles.
2003-04-17 06:31:39 PM  
Here comes that poodle dog
Big as a blimp
With a rhinestone collar
Snappin' off the trees
Like they was
Bonsai twigs on a
Dry-water landscape

If I had a toy poodle I'd name him "Frunobulax" but call him "Fru-fru" in front of the ladies.
2003-04-17 06:31:53 PM  
So what...Jack Lalane pulls trains and boats and shiat and he is only as big as a shiatzu.
2003-04-17 06:33:10 PM  
Holly Jumpin Jesus...they actually have an "international weight pull association" what the?
2003-04-17 06:34:31 PM  
Well lemme tell ya something, brother, that's nothing. Why, in front of over 93,000 Huckstermaniacs and the Pontiac Silverdome I lifted Andre the Giant, God rest his soul, brother, over my head and slammed him to the canvas, brother.
Oh wait - did you say a Poodle, brother? Well I thought you were talking about a Great Dane, brother. Wow, that's amazing brother, that the only thing remotely French that can pull 180 pounds is a poodle, brother. I mean, lemme tell ya sometime about how I used to whip the Rougeaus all over the place, brother.
2003-04-17 06:35:27 PM  
Yeah, it helps if the owner is pulling the poodle by the collar...

/I know, I know....
2003-04-17 06:35:38 PM  
Yeah...I think the guys at the world's strongest man have a similar weight to pull ratio. If you assume they're about 300 pounds, and they usually pull what, two semi cabs?(180/10)*300=4900

I'm pretty sure a semi weighs at lot more than 2,500 pounds, so they're outpulling this little thing.
2003-04-17 06:39:17 PM  
I meant the guys who compete at The World Strongest Man competitions.
2003-04-17 06:41:31 PM  
There a guy that pulled a Jumbo Jet a year or three ago. He had a latter on the ground to get the thing rolling.

2003-04-17 06:53:12 PM  
Oh yeah? Well my dog can pull 180 DOLLARS. At the current exchange rate, that's like twice as much!
2003-04-17 06:56:17 PM  
While I'm busy ingnoring them, where are these PETA people when you need them?
2003-04-17 06:57:21 PM  
Big deal, I'm a 150 pound kid and can squat 425.
2003-04-17 06:58:37 PM  
Thanks man, you made my dad. Considerint I just woke up from a 4 hour nap. My friends call me up and say "HEY! what's the name of the vampire in the movie Shadow of the Vampire" and I say "Nosferatu." And thus my crap friends woke me up that way.
But that's too much that you wanted to know, but thank you, I apreciate it.
2003-04-17 07:00:53 PM  
DAY, I mean DAY.
I'm still delusional from my nap I guess.
2003-04-17 07:05:12 PM  
180 pounds? That dog could lift my weener!
2003-04-17 07:08:43 PM  
GoofyGus: How in the world did you find such an appropriate picture?
2003-04-17 07:20:06 PM  
It looks like one of the photos taken by that old "Time" magazine photographers. I foreget his name, but I have an old book of his stuff.

Jakjak How in the world did you find such an appropriate picture?

Somebody emailed it to me with the title "Strong Poodle."
I've been wating for 3 years to post it here. Now, I continue to wait for a story about a fat woman that kills a small dog. Then I can post this:

Well I pull heavy pallets at work all the time. They weigh up to 3000 lbs and I use a little hand jack. Not something with nice wheels. (180/11)*175 = 2863 < 3000. So ha! Take that you stupid poodle!
