How Nazi Scientists Tried to Create an Army of Talking Dogs

I swear, sometimes I have to check to make sure it’s not The Daily Show or The Onion. Thgis is currently up on Yahoo news:

You just know that they’d be breeding Alsatians for this. You couldn’t see SS troops with, say, talking dachshunds. (Although I could see a role for them as spies, infiltrating the houses and offices of the Allied Command and reporting back via radio. They’d have Peter Lorre’s voice.)

And he could even say his name!

It runs in the family. His littermate Ulf could do it too.

Don’t forget the Hitler Salute dog.

He later enjoyed more fame as the piano player for Jim Henson’s Muppets.

They could have called their dog-army the Woofen-SS. :wink:

Or the Woofwaffe.

Yet another weird science story from World War II, along with the bat bombs, Soviet tank busting dogs and the flying tank. Still doesn’t dethrone my personal favourite, Project Habbakuk though…

Talking schmalking. Let me know when they shoot bees out of their mouth.

I like the Polish artillery bear myself.
