Doggone outrageous

Amidst the huge collection of pictures taken during yesterday's "INTERNATIONAL DAY OF OUTRAGE" was this one:

"Denmark dogs"?

Hey, that's what the sign says.

And in light of her previously announced support for Denmark, Coco's now thinking along the lines of an "INTERNATIONAL DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH DENMARK DOGS."

And one dog at a time, the outrage is spreading.

Maybe we're all Denmark dogs? (Well, hopefully not this kind....)

Regarding yesterday's "Day of Anger," Jeff Percifield asks, "How would you tell?" Determined to find out, Jeff takes a humorous look at outrage, in a stylish mission calculated to get to the bottom of things and see how much "out" there is, um, behind the rage.

Style to die for! Like this:

I shrunk the above, because you really should go there to see the original (and even hotter stuff). (Plus, I better not outrage Jeff by pirating a full-size picture of his art. Hate to think what he might do to retaliate.)

There's a lot more over at Beautiful Atrocities, and Jeff has more than lived up to his blog's name. It's hilariously inflammatory. As Sean Kinsell warns:

Since this is Beautiful Atrocities we're talking about, it goes without saying that it's not safe for work. Not safe for play, either. I'm a big proponent of civilized discourse, but there are times when targeted offensiveness makes a point that can't be made any other way.
Hmmm....

I know I just said that I didn't want to spoil Jeff's art, but now Coco has chimed in. She thinks there's something missing from the dog picture. Perhaps it just saw too much, um, "action," but that silly pink figurine standing on the couch in the background just looks tired and worn out.

No chic. No savoir faire!

"Out with the pink effigy!" declares Miss Coco.

Which means it's time to redecorate, and I dare not disappoint her!

(My PhotoShop skills are not what they should be, but I hope the State Department finds the above acceptable.)

MORE: In the interest of fuller disclosure, I think I should point out that Coco did a little partying last night. With a little French-speaking friend and a bottle of "DANZKA" Danish vodka. (More on the brand here.)

It's great vodka with a very smooth taste. But I'm afraid there's not much left.

MORE: Sean Kinsell is having thoughts about supporting the boycott by buying Royal Copenhagen China.

I'm not sure I'd want Coco modeling that stuff. (Something about a pit bull in a china shop....)

While we're all ringingly defending Western society by capitalizing on opportunities to be offensive....

Jeff, your name was almost Elmer Percifield?

It's a dog-eat-dog world, honey.

Democracy, sexy, whiskey! It all comes down to product placement.
