Preposterous quotations #199

A nice story by Laura Blumenfeld at the Washington Post about underachieving dogs retrained as bomb-sniffers. One of the main dogs profiled was raised by a convicted murderer:
Pucci threw a party for "my baby girl" who was leaving to fight al-Qaeda. He made her "ooganooga meatballs": mashed puppy food, olive oil, peanut butter and rice.

Pucci said, "I may be a criminal, but I'm an American criminal." His voice caught. "A little piece of me goes out to fight for the American way -- to keep the Yankee games going."
