[Classic] Dave Barry

“Dogsled-riding is a sport that is relaxing as well as fragrant.* A dogsled is…follow me carefully here…a sled that is pulled by dogs. And if you think that dogs are not strong enough to pull a sled, then you have never been walking a dog on a leash when a squirrel ran past. Even a small dog in this situation will generate one of the most powerful forces known to modern science. In some squirrel-infested areas, it is not at all unusual to see a frantically barking dog racing down the street, wearing a leash that is attached to a bouncing, detached arm.”

(*Fragrant, no less. Love it!)
