General Howe’s Dog

In keeping with PVP’s sad loss and the Independence Day celebration, I present General Howe’s Dog:

Unlike the purveyors of fake news (I’m looking at you CNN!), I check my sources. (Hat tip here. Source checked here.)

George Washington was a class act.

    44 wold have cooked it for dinner. Not only was it a dog and thus unclean and unfit to live, but it belonged to a pale stale white male!

      This could be a great game.

      # 44 (Obama): “I ate it. Also we surrender ’cause we deserve to lose.”

      # 37 (Nixon): “I’ve named the dog Checkers and you sonsa’ bitches can’t have him back.”

      #26 (T. Roosevelt): “The dog, being manifestly unfit as demonstrated by it’s foolishness in getting lost amid the mighty fog of war, has become a project of mine. I am teaching it to hunt. After the successful conclusion of this war, I will take the beast to the unexplored territories… perhaps Montana, where we will jointly hunt grizzly bare[sic]. It is possible, even likely that the dog, and I, or both, will die. But what of it? Man and dog are meant to hunt.”

      #7 (Jackson): “The dog is an amiable drinking partner. Together we quaffed many pints of something flammable, then, in an unfortunate series of events, we burned Trenton to the ground. Whoops! I’ll return the dog to Howe but only if he’ll accept my challenge to a duel.”

      • Mark Matis says:

        I surrender! You have done far better with this meme than my feeble attempt at honesty.

        Although I do want to add that 45 would have had SecDef Mattis escort the dog back to General Howe, and would have negotiated an exchange for Tarleton in return…

      #6: (Adams): “Found an English dog. Fed it to the pet alligator the Marquis de Lafayette gifted me. A French dude who fights the English alongside us rebels and then hands out alligators like party favors? Troll level = epic!”
