Dog's Are Watching Us.....

Thanks to Tom Smith for the lead....

You may have heard of the recent commencement speech furor generated by Jean Rohe, pre-butting John McCain, at the New School in New York. The link will lead you where you need to go....

Well, that's all well and good; I've liked McCain's independence in the past; I've found him to be not so independent in the present. Whatever.

The important story under the story is this: Ms. Rohe speech started with a stanza from the song "Living Planet" by Jay Mankita.

One of my all time favorite folk music lines of all time were also written by Mr. Mankita, in a parody of the song "From a Distance", called From a Dog's Stance
From a dog's stance, we are waitresses...
marching to the kitchen now.
Bringing bowls of food...Make that "people" food...
That's the stance of every dog.

Yep, that there is the best line ever written.

Bringing bowls of food...Make that "people" food...

BEST LINE EVER.
