Default Confucius - man's best friend ?

I’ll probably be in the doghouse after posting this but, unlike some members on The Bored, I won’t be muzzled.

Has The Bored well and truly gone to the dogs? Is it a case of dog eat dog these days? Or, business as usual then.

Some people are dog tired of some BE posters acting like a bitch. Confucius worked like a dog to organise the 2008 Polls, yet he got a lot of dog's abuse for his efforts. Some said he made a dog's breakfast of it. Does Confucius have any idea who his real chums are any more? With pals like these...

While I admit that Confucius’s bark is much worse than his bite, however, he should not be brought to heel for daring to cock his leg against what some on The Bored wanted for the 2008 Poll. My best friend was barely in the job five minutes before there were attempts to publicly neuter him by some BE posters. These people were definitely barking up the wrong tree. Attempts to send him packing so soon with a flea in his ear must have been ruff on the poor laddie. How dastardly can you get? (or is that Mutley?).

While Confucius is no lapdog...he was happy as a flea in a doghouse to organise the 2008 Poll...especially as he could nominate himself more than once in some categories...basically so that he could Win a lot ! (woof ! woof !). I'm sure he'll be up for organising the 2009 Poll but, the way things are going, it’ll be like scaling Mount K2 (or is that K9?).

I say call of the dogs...who let these people off the leash? In the words of McEnroe...are these people Sirius ? Some people should take a paws for thought and let sleeping dogs lie.

Anyway, must rush... off to see a man about a dog.

MS. Lick! Lick!

PS. In jest - no offence intended. !

You a bit barking today MacScottie???

Don't bother a shitzu about those Bassets.
There's always a couple - Jack? Russell ? baying for blood.Hound them out towards Labrador or feed em to the Dingos.
Always some mutt,thinks he's top dog trying to put a spaniel in the works.
Come hell or dalmation-you can't be rid of the rabid curs.
Anyways, the polls are for fun and I think the Chow did well
Goodboy,give him a quick pat on the head a worm cake and packet of Bob Martins, he'll lick you for ever.



ps. I haven't a scooby what you are on about........
