“A Man and His Dog”

March 10, 2021


ME: Hey, buddy! What’s up?
WATSON: Just wanted to say thanks for the gift.
ME: You’re very welcome, my friend. I know you love the bull penis.
(Pause)
WATSON: Did you just say “bull penis” to me?
ME: Yes, you love them. What do you think you’ve got in your mouth right now?
WATSON: Uhhh…rawhide?
ME: Ha! No, that thing’s made out of—
WATSON: Yes, I get it! Thank you!
ME: What? You don’t like it now?
WATSON: Well, you could have let me keep thinking it was rawhide. What is it you say? “I don’t need to know how the sausage is made?” Don’t you say that all the time?
ME: Well, not all—
WATSON: Now I have to go bury this in the couch and pretend it’s rawhide when I find it again at Thanksgiving.
ME: Sorry, Dude.
(Pause)
ME: Boy, you’re really not going to like the cow patty I got you, then.
WATSON: Oh, come on!!
