Homeland security needs a mascot???

Give me a fucking break. How silly can they be?

I don’t know about you…but I think it’s fine for my 10 year old to be oblivious to twat.

What the hell is an american shepard anyway? Are they creating dog breeds now?

There have GOT to better ways to get this message out there.

Remember. Only you can prevent terrorism.

Meh, its’ a new world. Our grandkids (Creator willing) will look back and laugh at this the way we laugh at duck and cover drills. As long as the government doesn’t tell kids to keep an eye on their brown friends, whatever.

An American shepherd?

I thought they would use this as the mascot.

Not I I would prefer my child to be aware of the world around them. Even that young. It may be a little silly, but cute mascot animals are a pretty time-tested way to pass a message along to kids.

This is an American shepherd.

If by “they,” you mean “dog breeders,” then yes. Of course they are. That’s what they do. Please note that this breed originated in 1968.

In conclusion, lame-assed OP. Blind partisan hacking. Par for the course.

Me ogre. Me no code. Me smash keyboard with blunt object. Rowr.

:rolleyes:

What’s the name of that breed again?

My puter says Northi American Shephard.

Is my puter wrong?

What’s your point? That a dog which was bred in the United States shouldn’t be called an American Shepherd? Are you always this hopelessly pedantic, or do you save it up to try to make your more obscure points? Truth is that the breed has several alternate names: North American shepherd, American shepherd, and even “miniature Australian shepherd.”

But what does it matter? They could have used a English mastiff for all I care, and all that matters to you is that the administration is trotting out a new program, which is always an excuse for you to break out the tinfoil beanie.

I think this is a great idea. My friends and I used to delight in making fun of McGruff the Crime Dog singing the “Users are Losers” song when I was young. Hopefully, this campaign will be equally silly, and the kiddies will have their own amusement.

(bolding mine)
Think you have the wrong pronoun there…

I like how the life expectancy is listed as “12-12 years”. If your dog lives to 13, do you have to shoot it?

Not an ostrich?

You were one of those young cynics who responded to gradeschool anti-smoking campaigns by drawing a poster of McGruff holding a pack and saying “Take a Bite Out of Cigarettes” weren’t you?
:wink:

Perhaps they can recycle all the unused Mr. Yuck stickers:

I thought they were bringing back Bert the Turtle!
