Update: My Unapologetic Dog

Every once in a great while, you'll write about something because you think it's funny/interesting/relevant and by some fortunate twist of fate the 24-hour news cycle will produce the perfect rejoinder that both completes and amplifies your original thought. This is one of those rare instances. But in order to fully comprehend the context and humor of this update, you'll have to read yesterday's post by the same title.

Shortly after reading that post, a friend of mine sent me a link with the simple message, "Dude, you have to read this! There are testicle inspectors in Dupont! Put this in your post!"

My first thought was "Duh, of course there are, it's Dupont." (One of the largest, most vibrant gay neighborhoods in the entire country, for those of you outside the District). And sure enough the article's title confirmed this: "Testicle Testers in Dupont Circle." This was posted on the website of the local NBC affiliate so it had to be a reputable article, but what did it have to do with anything I wrote? As it turns out, everything.

As soon as I started reading, I realized that the fascist wing of the Responsible Pet Owners Association (mentioned in the preceding post) had brought their evil agenda to one of D.C.'s most affluent neighborhoods. According to them, "the new Dupont Circle dog park at 17th and S is turning into some male-dominated, hump-filled nest of debauchery." So what's the problem? Who would have imagined there would be such hate for balls in Dupont, of all places? And most important, is it fair for Oscar or any other "be-testicled" canine to be subjected to such blatant discrimination? I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

Without further ado, I give you "Testicle Testers in Dupont Circle":

Only in Dupont.
