Dumbass Pitches

We get a LOT of pitches here in the Fishbowl. Lucky for you, we ignore a LOT of them. But, every once in a while, we get a pitch that is so beautifully stupid, we can’t help but share it with you, our trusted readers. Today’s Dumbass Pitch comes from Cathy Unruh, who describes herself as “Nationally Known Animal Advocate and Author of ‘Taming Me: Memoir of a Clever Island Cat.”

Dana’s Doggie’s Style

Normally, we spend time sifting through Dana Perino’s tweets to find that she combines her political insight with the love of her dog, Jasper. Today is something special. The Fox News pundit tweeted out this pic of Jasper with a caption that said, “May I Take Your Order?”

We get it, Dana. You love your dog. They’re great animals. But, they’re not kids and they’re not rag dolls.

But don’t tell that to her Twitter followers, who shared the laughs with Dana. Many of them begin tweeting pics of their pooches and wondering where they could find the costume. Can these people be locked up for animal abuse?
