Man Bites Dog

Serial douchebag Mark McGowan ate a corgi with Yoko Ono on a BBC radio program.

Of course PETA approved... because eating animals is wrong, but that corgi was a little asshole.

I'll leave the doggie bag jokes to less responsible media outlets.

Deadspot: Now I'm going to ask you that question once more, and if you say 'no' I'm going to shoot you through the head. Now, do you have any fact checkers at all?

BBC: No.


As it happens, Yoko didn't actually eat the corgi and was not, in point of fact, even in London when it happened. The BBC has since completely rewritten the story that appears when you follow the link.

Mark McGowan is, however, a douchebag.

I can't believe it. How gross. Corgi's are my favorite dogs and I plan to have one as soon as possible. Did they eat a Cardigan or a Pembroke? This is yet another reason to leave the Pitchfork Music Festival when she starts playing. Then again, rumor has it that she paid for there to be ice cream at every meal at Sarah Lawrence and sometimes i ate some.... Where do my loyalties lie?

But isn't it the same as eating a hamburger or other meat item?

For lunch today I'm having either a pork souvlaki or a pork ribette. I eat meat.

Johnny Yen said...

That's horrible, eating a Corgi.

Now Chihuahuas are another story. Dine happily on them.

Did I mention that my ex-wife had two Chihuahuas? And that I hated them?

Johnny Yen said...

And you'll notice that I resisted the temptation to make a joke about "What's the problem with eating a hot dog?"

Oops, it slipped out...

1. All Corgis are assholes. They're an asshole breed. Everyone knows that.

2. If McGowan or Ono had the beaten the Corgi in a fair fight, that'd be one thing, but to eat some old dog that died somewhere else - come on. Where's the sport in that? That's right. Nowhere.

Wow...wasting water and eating Corgis? Feeding on his own fecal can't be too far behind.

(cue the Dennis Leary classic)

'cause he's an *ssh*le-
He's the world's biggest *ssh*le

He didn't prove a damn thing, other than he is addicted to his own pretentiousness.

Fucking Yoko Ono? Ew.

They're my favorite too, Natalie, but the drumsticks are tiny. Ba dum cha! I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress. I absolve you of your guilt over the ice cream. If Satan himself brings free ice cream, nobody should blame you for taking some. I mean, what the heck? It's ice cream, for free.

"Otherwise, it's just picking on the chickens." Yeah. I'm probably the only person who got that reference... I'm with you, Tanya, if animals don't want to be eaten, they should stop being made out of meat.

You're a bad man, Mr. Yen.

Is there some Corgi trauma in your past that you'd like to share, Vikki? McGowan and Ono in a pit full full of Corgis, winners eat the losers: that's a pay per view special, that is. Maybe you could get Food Network and Animal Planet to underwrite it.

Leaving the water running doesn't make you an artist, it makes you an inconsiderate jerk. I understand that he has a riveting one man show called "Leaving the Toilet Seat Up." It's also performed at secret locations all over London.

That last joke would have been twice as funny if I'd thought of the title "Failure To Flush" before I hit publish.

You have my apologies and my promise to do better next time.
