A Dog's Life

Postby Moonraker » 03 Dec 2008, 18:33

This, copied from the Message Board caused me to titter!

ImageBarney says: I'm very sorry Mark, but we cannot offer valuations. This was produced about ten years ago along with a map of Toyland and if I remember rightly I had to sign a certificate of authenticity for it. You need to get advice from an auction house if you want to know what it is currently worth.

Barney signing a certificate of authenticity, eh? What a clever little dog you are, old thing!

I grinned at that too. I suppose the certificate has a paw-print on it!

Nonsense, Barney learned to write in order to produce his forthcoming autobiography Life with a mad Blyton collector. :wink: :D

If it costs a juicy bone, it might be a bit difficult to send it over the post! :lol:

Hey guys, I seem to be getting a fan club here! Don't think I like the title for my autobiography though - I am sure I can come up with something more snappy than that.

And forget the bones for payment, I am quite happy with sausages! :lol:

:shock: :shock: I never knew that this internet dog comic is based on a true story!

My word, anybody else here in the forum is a dog I wonder? :wink:


Edit: Ah, yes, there's also Timmy-the-dog :lol:
Dogs are very clever nowadays I must say!

Great paw-trait, Snubby. :lol:

As there just may :wink: be a tiny possibility for your cartoon to be (?wilfully?) misinterpreted by card-carrying members of the :shock: Women's Liberation Front, I suggest that you are careful going through doorways where a knife-wielding feminist might be lurking on the other side. And, no, if you're a woman that likely wouldn't excuse you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry, Aurélien, I am completely clueless about any misinterpretation the cartoon might cause.. :oops:

Struggling with my poor English, I guess it has something to do with this: (please correct me if I get it wrong :? :?)

Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary wrote:dog (PERSON) Show phonetics
noun [C]
OFFENSIVE an unattractive woman

is it???

If that's the case, then I'm a dog myself!! :!: :) :shock: :wink: :lol: :|

Apologies, Snubby. It is terribly easy to forget that English is a second (or third, fourth, etc) language to a number of people posting here. Hence :oops: my light-hearted remarks about the cartoon you posted.

As for personal appearance, even in my younger and less wrinkled years my short, heavily freckled body would never have been pictured on a page in a pin-up calendar!

:D You need not apologize, Aurélien.. In fact,this will just add to my long list of words learned from this forum! :lol: :oops:

I could guess a bit that your remark was light-hearted from ".. a knife-wielding feminist might be lurking on the other side!!" :shock: since you CAN'T be serious about this! :lol: :lol:
(looking behind my back for any Women's Liberation Front member who might be lurking around with a knife at this time)

Well done, Snubby. Guess :wink: this site gives us all learning experiences. I've got a few dog cartoons myself, though not scanned in, and even more cat cartoons.
