News, but not the serious kind
I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore
Blog Guy, I come to you for all my news about the movie industry. I worry that the big stars are demanding so much money these days, Hollywood will just stop making new films. Is that a real possibility?
Pugs? You mean those funny-looking dogs?
Sure. They’ve just released a new spaghetti western with a pug in the role Clint Eastwood used to play.
Predictably, the hero dog is bound and whipped by the bad guys, but he escapes their clutches.
That sounds great! What’s it called?
“Lashed but not Leashed.” And that’s not all. This summer’s fare will bring “The Pugnacious Pugilist,” “Pugboat Annie” and the mob story, “Pugsy Siegel.”
Yes. There is already a new version of “The Wizard of Oz,” with pugs playing Dorothy, the Tin Man and the other iconic characters. The new Dorothy wears a wig, of course.
They love it. You’ve never heard the expression, “Snug as a pug in a rug”?
