I think this is the more accurate After Pic if you're gonna use that 1" paddle bit



Everyone knows that a lobotomy is best done with a wire coathanger.

by NineInchNachos on 3/18/2009 @ 7:03pm
my kits can also be self-administered on humans, which in your case would be my recommendation.

by Mofo from the Hood on 3/18/2009 @ 8:38pm
I ain't met no pitbull yet that was a match for my Beretta. On a cool Spring mornin' huntin' pitbulls is prit' near more fun than gettin' down on my neighbors' wife's muffin.

You stupid fucks are evil, fucking evil. Pit bulls are not like this, you come up with these stupid contraptions to get fucking money. WHat a rip off, that shit looks harmful and brutal. How would you like it if someone screwed shit up in your brain like that? I hope you get the fuck sued out of you for cruelty to animals you sleezy, pompous, greedy shit fucks! You have no respect for life, or this planet. It's people like you that kill everything for monetary gain, and destroy this place we live in. You are evil, and you are going to hell, every last one of you. Also, you show a picture of a dead dog on here, fucking sick freaks, I hope this stupid site gets shut down, fuck you, all of you who support this place, and especially the sick, insane psychopaths who invented this fucked up contarption, FUCK YOU!

abunch of idiots in here

by snowmayne on 11/12/2009 @ 7:23pm
first. any cruelty to an animal, jokingly or not is sick.

second, while some people here are trying to defend the american pitbull terrier, you have some very wrong information. APBT's do not have a trigger in their brain which makes them mad, just like they do not have lockjaw, and just like their brains do not grow so big into their skulls that they flip out.

third, the APBT was bread to never have human aggression, never to bite a human, and to only have dog aggression back in the 1890s and early 1900s.

fourth, the APBT scored second only to Golden Retrievers who scored 1st, and labs who scored 3rd, in their likelyhood to bite humans.

do a little research, quit buying into media controlled bullshit, and last but not least, think for yourself.

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 11/12/2009 @ 8:08pm
Just how many of these kits did you end up selling, RR?

by pitlover1213 on 11/20/2009 @ 6:27pm
Some of you have no heart.
i had a pit bull when i was about 13 and she was my guardian she was the one that kept me safe. i don't know where you get the idea that pitbulls fight because they are mean and nasty dogs. the only reason they fight is because of the assholes that raise them.

by pitlover1213 on 11/20/2009 @ 6:29pm
i can not believe the cruelty in your hearts if you think that its ok to punish these dogs for your own selfish needs.

by Pitbulllover8466 on 1/21/2010 @ 12:46pm
You are one stupid fuck! Pit Bulls are not only one who attacks!! Everyday dogs would attack just as well as any human being would attack if they felt threaten enough!! Come on now! if you had a daughter or a son and they couldnt take your shit anymore so they augured with you what are you just going to put that through your own child's head? or if someone you didnt like came around and you chose to fight them does that mean someone can put that to your head?!? if you did hurt a pit bull dog or any dog for that matter i hope that your time comes soon too... i hope the cops do something about this for animal cruelty or i hope you deiced to put that to your own head!

by The Jinxmedic on 1/21/2010 @ 1:21pm
Whoa, whoa- language alert! This is a family news feed website thingie here. You gentlemen are not helping your cause through the use of abusive language and death threats against a known satirist who is famous for his "button pushing" graphical satire, lampooning comics, and general parody.

As a matter of fact, if I had previously been sitting on the fence regarding my opinion on the relative aggression of the various Pit Bull breeds (American Pit Bull Terriers, American Stratfordshire Terriers, et al) and their aficionados, rest assured, you have certainly helped me to make up my mind. So I do indeed thank you, sirs, for your contribution to this discussion.

by Emilie has one foot on shore on 1/21/2010 @ 1:31pm
Yowza. Thanks for the language check, Jinxmedic.

You all don't hafta get ugly.

by panachronic on 1/21/2010 @ 3:16pm
"You all don't hafta get ugly."

Well, I dunno. RR's latest cartoon is pretty much a piece of hate speech aimed at those with different political opinions, so I'd have to say that he leaves himself open to ugliness from those who are similarly inclined. You know... things that come and go around, and all of that.

by Altered Chords on 1/21/2010 @ 3:39pm
Apparently pit bull lovers have a trigger in their brain which makes them spell incorrrectly and use profanity.

RR is not evil. He just needs a hug.

by Super S.perm on 1/21/2010 @ 3:46pm
i own a pitbull, and if i catch anyone trying to hurt him, that person is getting their legs broken with an iron rod. no hate speech here. just facts.

by NineInchNachos on 1/21/2010 @ 8:29pm
my patented home lobotomy kits help millions of disenfranchised dog owners sleep well at night knowing their tail-wagging-loaded-assault-rifle-pointed-at-heart of a dog is disarmed and contented in a happy vegetable state. These dogs are happy as clams! These dogs are as excitable as clams!

The next time your vicious attack animal tears the face, like a peel off an orange, of some helpless toddler, you'll be wishing you gave your dog this relatively painless mind-stabilization procedure!

Act now and i'll throw in a free PARROT LOBOTOMY KIT (includes shipping and tax)! BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!!! Act within the next 5 seconds and you'll receive a PITBULL HOME LOBOTOMY KIT, 6 month supply of DOGGIE DIAPERS, the PARROT HOME LOBOTOMY KIT and one at absolutely no extra cost to you, a FREE MODULAR CAT BRAIN ADAPTER KIT FREE! Imagine the girth and cuddliness of a lobotomized pit-bull but with the soft demeanor of a CAT! 100% satisfaction or TRIPLE YOUR MONEY BACK!

by Mofo from the Hood on 1/21/2010 @ 11:05pm
Uh, anybody know of a good pitbull taxidermist? Preferably in Tacoma. The guy I use for my yard squirrels ain't interested.

by Altered Chords on 1/22/2010 @ 8:02am
The pit bull kit is all well and good. What about the rest of us who own lions? This is a growing market and your R&D people better get busy or I'm going to patent the lion lobotimizer and you will be S.O.L.

by L.S.Erhardt on 1/22/2010 @ 11:40pm
What the world really needs is a lobotomy kit for politicians.

oh wait.... you can't remove what's not there to begin with.

by luvmypittie on 5/28/2010 @ 4:17pm
This may be satire but it is completely irresponsible. And throwing barbs at people upset by this is bullshit too. I rescue animals and foster to adoption. I have a pitbull rescue who is the best dog I ever had, no thanks to the motherfuckers who burned him down his back and chained him up in a vacant lot. This is like making jokes about molesting kids. ASS!

by NineInchNachos on 5/28/2010 @ 5:00pm
best thing about these dogs? baby back ribs! yummy! Pit Bull Burgers arent bad.. .though little gamy. Sorry for this terrible train wreck of a joke.

by L.S.Erhardt on 5/28/2010 @ 5:08pm
I amazes me how it keeps getting brought back up to life every 6 months.

Must be picked up by Google when you search for "Pit bull lobotomy"

by The Jinxmedic on 5/29/2010 @ 7:35am
At least this poster recognized that it was intended as satire- however, use of expletives and veiled threats continue to reinforce my observations. By the way, another child killed by the "lovable family pit bull" yesterday in California. Will link later.

I wonder if it's a good idea to leave a toddler unsupervised in a yard with two pitbulls.

by Altered Chords on 5/29/2010 @ 9:15am
Dogs are basically mutated wolves. Let's see if we can breed a house cat that weighs 150 pouds and can kill a water buffalo.

I like RR's humor also Thorax O'Tool's picture is quite a laugh too.
These guys would be perfect for ideas for the upcoming Postal 3 PC Game.
I always loved Postal and Postal 2.They were quite insane politically incorrect computer games for their time.
In Postal 2 one could kill lots of Dogs.In the sequel (Apocalypse Weekend Expansion Pack) there was even an episode in which a Zoophile trained his harem of attack Pit Bulls (in gimp suits HA HA) to Attack the Postal Dude.Setting the dogs on fire was always good for a laugh too in the series.The Postal Dude even had a pet dog named Champ.

One can even get this game now (with no DRM whatsoever) from Good Old Games.

To mofo
Your name says it all but then when I read your posts it is confirmed. You know where you should stick that Baretta. In your favorite place, you know the one your boy friend also enjoys. Your use of the English language would make anyone weep. Let me put it in a language you may understand.

by Nina P on 9/4/2010 @ 7:52pm
JesseHillFan, Not sure if you know that setting dogs on fire is a crime. Perhaps someone needs to investigate your ass and if it's true, you should go to jail.
You have cats huh? I like cats too. They taste better than chicken though. Don't you think? Have any good recipes? Just how fucking retarded are you, anyway? Your unintelligence is simply astonishing.

by NineInchNachos on 9/4/2010 @ 8:53pm
The dead dog is a foam Halloween decoration! And I didn't even post it! You need to yell at Thorax O' Tool.

My lobotomy kits are about enjoying the life and warmth of these majestic killer dogs made safe.

by Mofo from the Hood on 9/4/2010 @ 10:27pm
For best results, view the red pitbull photo and the preceeding message with stereoscopic glasses.

by The Jinxmedic on 9/4/2010 @ 10:29pm
Yup, back to thinly veiled death threats from Pit Bull fans.

I don't see Labrador Retriever owners acting out like this, perhaps that says something?

by NineInchNachos on 9/4/2010 @ 10:57pm
Labradors are born lobotomized?

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 9/5/2010 @ 1:48am
I'm just curious, but are there people that search google all day long looking for posts and web sites that they think are hostile to pit bulls? I'm no great fan of the pit bull but I'm pretty sure these posters that are hostile to some satire can find some actual animal cruelty in their own communities to deal with in a helpful manner. There are countless dogs in this country that suffer at the hands of humans. Take your love for the pit bull and help out the suffering dogs in your own communities. The dogs will thank you for it and you'll feel a whole lot better.

by Mofo from the Hood on 9/5/2010 @ 6:18am
Hate the pitbull deviant behavior.

Love the pitbull.

Peace. Out.

by NineInchNachos on 9/5/2010 @ 8:18am
perhaps writing things like "I'm going to beat your face in with a rusty tire iron" anonymously on the internet is more immediately gratifying than giving forsaken dogs a flea bath at the Humane Society.

by The Jinxmedic on 9/5/2010 @ 10:48am
Therein lies my problem with the vocal majority of Pit Bull owners, and their "pets". As a former medic on the street of a major city, I will NEVER subscribe to the view of "oh, they're really wonderful dogs- it's just the owners". Once you are unable to render aid to a cardiac patient because of their "pet dogs" will not let you onto the property, and even the police are unwilling to enter- and you watch that patient die in front of you because you can't give them the life saving treatment that they desperately need (this happened more than once on my crew), or you respond on your umpteenth call of a mauled child and the Pit Bull owner says, "I don't know what happened, he never did anything like this before", "he's usually such a good dog", or posters on this thread who threaten to KILL a certain cartoonist because he dares to point out the problem with this particular group of breeds through a satirical behavior modification treatment- Guess what? I DO NOT like, and will NEVER like Pit Bulls, and my very direct experiences show that they have no place in our community.

by NineInchNachos on 9/5/2010 @ 11:16am
my aunt (former ER nurse) agrees with you Mr. Jinxmedic.

by Gadsden on 9/5/2010 @ 1:00pm
Just curious The jinxmedic, did you ever come into contact with any other type of dog that behaved protectively [or aggressively] when you responded to their 'master' needing help? I somehow imagine our opinions on the behavior of a dog during a situation such as you have described will differ.

As for your opinion of where the dogs do or do not belong in society, I'm quite positive we disagree.

Frankly, you as a collective group sit smugly back and enjoy the aroma of stink you raise when hiding behind your defense of satire. The truth may be that if you were a member of a group of people constantly judged, condemned, ostracized, and/or discriminated against, you too would lash out at such nonsense as the original post.

With the controversy that is currently upon the doorstep of NYC in the debate of a Mosque being built at Ground Zero -- I suppose most here believe that all Muslims are terrorists and working to remove Christianity from the free lives of Americans.

Or, perhaps you all believe that young African-American men should be locked up, whether they've been charged or convicted of a crime, but simply because they are young and black. After all, based on the study by W. Haywood Burns Institute, young black men are four times more likely to be detained in a correctional facility than white teen boys.

The definition of satire is exposing human folly to ridicule; you post something that causes hurt, appears as an attack - whether innocent or not - the end result will be people reacting. That is, if I'm not mistaken, exactly what you (collectively) aspired for, isn't it?

by fredo on 9/5/2010 @ 2:15pm
gadsden, if it makes you feel any better pit bulls are just one thing RR has posted against. he also doesn't like republicans, tea partiers, and old white people. but i'm with RR and jinx on this one.

by daubermaus on 9/5/2010 @ 3:02pm
As a former LA County Fire paramedic I have witnessed other dogs prevent aid - wolf-hybrids are just as aggressive.

You say that your opinion on the dog's behavior in such situation differs - but that completely misses the point - it is not opinion or personal interpretation of the dog's behavior that prevents aide - it is the dog's behavior FACT that prevents aide.

25 years ago as Fire we just asked for a badge assist and some nice Officer shot the dog.

Last year - when the nieghbors 5 pitbulls got out - tore my cat to pieces and attacked the other neighbors' dog - it took over an hour to get anyone from 911, and then it was Animal Control and in the end only one of the 5 dogs were euthanised.

But this is a complete waste of time because the people who pull this debate up and post rapid, insulting comments don't actually read the entire thread - they cherry pick sentences to respond to and then go off on bizzarre tangents about whatever political tirade they think will shame the other readers. And only those of us who are regulars here actually read and understand this thread.

by NineInchNachos on 9/5/2010 @ 3:41pm
Its my understanding that our mosque going friends are not big fans of the pitbull breed either.

by Gadsden on 9/5/2010 @ 4:23pm
Insinuations that I failed to read the entire thread are moot, and the 'good ole boy's' mentality of regular posters may need a fresh ingredient occasionally just to spice things up a little.

I can agree with you on the inept Animal Control response, but what point I believe you may be missing in reference to the 5 loose pit bulls is the fact that in LA, dogs running at large is a crime, granted, the penalties are ineffective, but still it is a crime. In addition, a person may own only 3 dogs per household. Another 'crime'. The mandatory spay and neuter didn't go into affect until '08, so I'm not sure that would have proved beneficial to you in your situation or not.

However, if only one dog was euth'ed, my bet is the owner ended up with little, if any financial loss or even more than a slight inconvenience.

So you put that blame on the dogs? I find that confusing jinx.

If 9 fails to see my point of uneducated bigotry being rampant in this country so beit. Although I'm fairly certain I didn't mention anywhere that Muslims upheld pit bulls, but instead that the discriminatory logic would be comparable.

Now, let's see if I have this straight...this was posted JUST to get a smirk out of the 'regular posters' and the violent, aggressive pit bull owners that commented prove to each of you only that pit bulls have no place in society, yes?

Could any of you just explain to me the place the other 15 breeds of dogs involved in fatal dog bite related deaths last year have in [your] society?

by daubermaus on 9/5/2010 @ 4:59pm
For the record ( because I personally hate photo icons that show mid-to-upper income white "boys" being attatched to posts that try to lecture me on bigotry, racism, and good ol' boy mentalities).

I am of seriously mixed ethnic heritage. I KNOW I have more personal experience with bigotry and intolerance than you have ever dreamed about. I speak english as a second language, I wear a scarf every time I am outside of my house, AND if you bump into my husband and I at the store you just might see me walking behind him out of ingrained and annoying habit. I am a US military vet, I have traveled extensively through South America, and I grew up on hippie communes and traveling from state to state in a F***ing trailer. I have a college education even though I could not read or write at 8yrs old (See US school teachers see no point in working with migrant kids cause they'll just move on.)

Your posts demonstrate all of the BS intolerances you think you're pointing out.

Now, I'm tired of feeding the trolls - have you considered 4chan?

by Gadsden on 9/5/2010 @ 6:23pm
Well if that's not the good ole boy club speaking then sista I aint ever heard truer words.

You assume my skin is white? That's beautiful!

Newbie's can't join, so you keep the same old hand shake?

Well geewiz shucks massa, I's sorry!

I guess I should have come on here talkin' shit and using threatening language, apparently THEN you're less threatened and more welcoming...till the admin kick me out of the club house though, I can comment as long and as often as I like. And since I'm not actually violating the user rules, well....

Like it or not, you're going to hear/read my opinion, cause 4chan is NOT my thang!

gadsden, welcome to the feedtacoma blog. i'm enjoying your comments.

you can add your comments to any of hundreds of threads existing on feedtacoma. kevin doesn't care if you want to use cursive language and quite a few regulars seem to enjoy this. if you find a topic that interests you just add a comment and the discussion will move to the top of the list. This is how the pit bull lobotomy thread gets resurrected every couple of months.
or start your own discussion, it's easy.

This blog is about making money. I don't know where this idea of 'community' came from... maybe you can find that in France... I dunno. Now do you want to buy the best, most humane kit for lobotomizing your dog or what?

by L.S.Erhardt on 9/5/2010 @ 7:27pm
Oooh! It amazes me how this thread seems to feed the trolls. But hey, trolling is fun!
I wanna troll too....

It's illegal to commit murder in California.
Every year hundreds of murders are committed by kids under 18.

I propose that instead of the death penalty, that the Great State of California put all juvenile murderers in a HUGE pit with all the pitbulls in the state.
And then let nature run it's course. One of the two problems is going to be solved....
-Thorax O'Troll

by Gadsden on 9/5/2010 @ 7:39pm
I think I might like it here.

Thanks for the welcome.

And, I'm afraid I would have to have a bulk discount if I were to place an order, just so you know.

I AM the owner of American Pit Bull Terriers. 3 of which are used in therapy work, all of which are spayed/neutered, and are more reliable in 'my' world than most people I come into contact with. I have a fenced yard, my dogs are never outside alone, and are always leashed when we leave my property, even though all are well-trained, obedient and passive in nature.

I wasn't picking a fight with Jinx, to be clear. I have 30 years experience with this specific breed of dog, and have seen the good, the bad and pitiful. I do recognize after years of study and practice, the body language and behavior of dogs where novice, or less experienced people will misread the situation, hell, I've even seen people (ACOs, law enforcement, shelter workers, etc) call a cur dog or American Bulldog a pit bull.

So, the subject is personal, but its not the only interests I have in life. I'm look forward to getting to know my way around here!

by The Jinxmedic on 9/5/2010 @ 7:42pm
Dear Gadsen. Wow. Just Wow. Where do I start-

I know, let's start with this:

In what world is "Nigra speak" is NOT racist? Why do Pit Bull defenders on this thread immediately attack the posters in a personal, homophobic (re-read Nina P's response for reference if need be) defamatory, and yes- racist manner, when all that the posters attack are a group of dangerous dog breeds?

We welcome open discourse on this site community, and yes, you are certainly welcome as a member and a poster- but one thing that you should probably know is this is about as far away from a "good ole boy" (your quote this time) network that you can get.

Why do you equate a dislike of Pit Bulls (and yes, I realize that this is a blanket term for a number of terrier breeds) with racism? Is it possible that perhaps, strictly statistically speaking as a percent of total population, that there are probably far more "white" (we'll call them "white trash, if that helps to satisfy some classist need) Pit Bull owners than minorities?

And regarding minorities- when a poster identifies themselves as a non-white with an ESL migrant background, you then address them in that aforementioned "Nigra Speak"? Does that even make sense in any universe? For instance, if you chose to address Daubermaus as a lazy wetback in some sort of mock-mexispeak, at least that would be closer to the personal information that she shared with you.

Regarding "opinion" versus observable facts- when I stated what I had encountered on EMS calls, that was observable fact, not opinion. When I say that "Pit Bulls have no place in our community", that is personal opinion, even if based on my first-hand observations. (just wanted to clear that up, since apparently it was somewhat confusing).

In Islam, ALL dogs are "Haram", or unclean. (That obviously includes Pit Bulls.) By the way, "Islam" is not a race. And I'm also not entirely sure what your diatribe against the Cordoba Initiative Community Center (now Park 51) in New York City; and your comment, "perhaps you all believe that young African-American men should be locked up, whether they've been charged or convicted of a crime, but simply because they are young and black" have anything to do with Pit Bulls?

I also noticed that you lumped Daubermaus and myself as the same poster- for the record, I was an EMT/Paramedic in a major east coast city (Billy Joel wrote a song about the place), while Daubermaus specifically mentioned serving in Los Angeles. So is it possible that emergency responders from all over the country might have similar experiences regarding this group of dog breeds?

You ask if I have been on the scene where other breeds of dogs have attacked- yes I have. I have seen Rottweilers and Mastiffs defend property- there are just far fewer of these out there than the smaller terriers. It has also been my experience that ANY dog breed will bite if provoked. The difference being that those other breeds tended to bite ONCE. (Those patients were usually treated on scene and released.) Pit Bulls do not break off an attack until physically seperated, or killed. Those patients are almost always transported to the closest trauma center, or else we have to wait around for the county coroner (and if you thought it was long wait for animal control, that's nothing compared to a wait for a coroner.)

Regarding NIN's original post, and what everyone seems to miss, is that his satrical concept was intended as a method to pacify a violent breed, thus rendering them a safe and friendly family pet. Although the tools shown in the "Pit Bull Home Lobotomy Kit" would obviously prove lethal- that is what makes it satirical. Just read any of NIN's political cartoons, and you will see that this is his general modus operandi- he provokes, and apparently, quite successfully.

Last item (because I'm getting tired): Your statement, "You assume my skin is white? That's beautiful!" -I'm sure that Daubermaus was referring to your photo avatar, which shows (at the time of this writing, anyway) what could only be described as upper middle class neighborhood behind the image of a white/caucasian/mediterranean male. Having only this image to go by, I can understand her reluctance of being lectured on racism.

In any event, welcome to our community, and I do look forward to what you might have to say on other local Tacoma-area issues. (It certainly spices up the site somewhat.) I just ask that you have some idea of your audience before accusing people of "racism".

Peace, dude.

by Gadsden on 9/5/2010 @ 8:56pm
Jinx, wasn't accusing anyone of racism....at all.

My point, which I'll put in the simplest format:

African-American young men have been lumped into a 'group', certainly not every black male under the age of 40 is a criminal.
Mexican-Americans, or anyone else that has brown skin and black hair are enduring blatant violation of their 4th, 5th, and 14th amendments based on a society's fear and desperation. They're lumped into a 'group', yet I'm certain not all are 'aliens' and don't deserve the harassment.
The Non-Muslim portion of society, especially in NYC have lumped all people of a certain faith into a single 'group' (based on the actions of a minority). Based on the fear and anger that resonates our society, they are held to a different standard than, say Catholics, or Baptists.
Republicans work feverishly to repeal Roe v. Wade every year, yet it was the Republican vote that legalized abortion in 1973, and has repeatedly maintained the right to choose since then. From 2000-2006, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the presidency. In 2006, the FDA approved an “over the counter” abortion drug known as “Plan B.” Yet, voters believe the right-wing opposes abortion.

Its stereo-typical thinking that places society in the predicament it currently suffers.

Bigotry, discriminatory thinking/behavior. I'm not comparing pit bulls and racism, or pit bulls and politics. I am simply pointing out that based on biased, uninformed, narrow-minded theory PEOPLE fail to recognize the depth of issues or the basis of the problem that generates the issue.

The mentality of ""I'm not a bigot. I'm just taking my fear and loathing over the actions of a minute sample of a specific group and generalizing my hatred to that entire population."

And for the record, I am former law enforcement on a municipal department that Billy Joel didn't sing about, thank God.

Not all pit bull type dogs, nor their owners are violent, ill-mannered, dangerous or incapable of functioning in and contributing to their communities.

I have been reading RR's posts/cartoons, and I do get the satire. I just felt compelled to respond to the REMARKS more so than the post.

Thanks for the welcome mat.

Let's keep things in context---We're on RR Anderson's DIY Blog.

I've been going round and round with Mr. Anderson on various local blogs since Black Monday, 1929.

The last thing that he is concerned about is defining good & evil.

He likes old tools. This post is about old tools.

For Nina P as per request:

My grandmother's recipe for

Alley Tiger


oil for frying
2 pounds cat legs and thighs
green onions to taste,
1 head garlic, roasted
2 bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
1 hot chile, minced
1 can tomatoes
1 can chicken stock
salt
black pepper
1 can coconut milk
1 cup sugar

Directions
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the meat pieces until browned on the outside. Transfer to a soup pot or large saucepan. Add the onion, garlic, and peppers to the skillet; cook and stir until onion is wilted. Transfer to the pot. Add the tomatoes, stock, salt and pepper to the pot, and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium-low heat for about 2 hours. Remove the meat pieces, and keep warm. Turn the heat up to high under the pot, and boil the liquid until it has reduced by half. Return the meat pieces to the pan, and stir in the coconut milk and sugar. Cook, until heated through. Serve.

Or did you want my mother's recipe for roast haunch of dog instead?

Personally, I like hotchy's best!

Look, I don't know what the hell you people are talking about. Let's talk turkey. Are we going to make a deal or what? It's like i'm the only one who hasn't had a lobotomy.... not that there is anything wrong with that.

Maybe the kit is the right choice for your dog, your family, maybe it is not. These dogs aren't going to lobotomize themselves!

I am a Pitbull owner, Beagle owner and Labrador Retriever owner and have other breeds so I am not sure if I fall in your category of the typical Pitbull owner. I am just sick and tired of this breed being maligned. My neighbor's kid lost a finger to a Chihuahua but it never made the news. A Pitbull bites some old geezer or some little brat and it makes the news. Seriously.

by Nina P on 9/7/2010 @ 1:13pm
To daubermaus: The recipe was delicious. Thanks. Grandma and Grandpa had two servings and little Bucky ate everything on his plate. Yummy. We used tabby since we could not find a tiger. There was one in Florida but I think he has now moved out.

Discriminatory Profiling Only Hurts The Children

by Bonita72 on 4/10/2011 @ 6:16pm
WOW their are some of the most ignorant people on this site, before you open your and make claims do yourself a favor and become educated... How about this you mouth shooting ignorant people..

The United Kennel Club was the first registry to recognize the American Pit Bull Terrier. U.K.C. founder C. Z. Bennett assigned U.K.C. registration number 1 to his own APBT, Bennett's Ring in 1898.


Ten Facts About Pit Bulls Every One Should Know
1. Pit Bulls are commonly used as therapy dogs. Whether they are visiting a senior care facility or helping someone recover from an emotional accident, Pit Bulls are making a mark as outstanding therapy dogs.
2. Pit Bulls are used in Search and Rescue work. One example of well known SAR Pit Bulls is Kris Crawford and her dogs. Kris and her dogs have helped save the lives of many people during their efforts. www.ForPitsSake.org
3. Pit Bulls serve as narcotic and bomb sniffing dogs. One Pit Bull, Popsicle (named that because he was found in an old freezer) has the largest recorded single drug find in Texas history. Read more about Popsicle here. Including how he found over 3,000 lbs of cocaine in Hildago, Texas.
4. Pit Bulls are great with kids. They weren't referred to as the "nanny's dog" for nothing that's for sure.
5. Pit Bulls are not human aggressive. The American Pit Bull Terrier as a breed is not human aggressive. In fact, quite the opposite is true of the breed. They are gentle and loving dogs. Like any dog individuals can be unsound and have behavior problems.
6. The Pit Bull was so popular in the early 1900's they were our mascot not only in World War One, but World War Two as well. They were featured on recruiting and propoganda posters during this time period.
7. Sgt. Stubby. A Pit Bull war hero. Stubby was wounded in action twice, he saved his entire platoon by warning them of a poison gas attack and he single handedly captured a German spy.
8. Pete the Pup on the orginal Little Rascals was a Pit Bull.
9. Pit Bulls score an 83.4% passing rate with the American Temperament Test Society. That's better than the popular Border Collie (a breed who scores 79.6%). View the ATTS stats here.
10. They are dogs not killing machines.


MYTH: All Pit Bulls are mean and vicious.

It is reported on temperament tests conducted by the American Temperament Test Society that Pit Bulls had a passing rate of 82% or better -- compared to only 77% of the general dog population.

These temperament tests consist of putting a dog through a series of unexpected situations, some involving strangers.

Any signs of unprovoked aggression or panic in these situations result in failure of the test. The achievement of Pit Bulls in this study disproves that they are inherently aggressive to people. (Please visit ATTS.org)
MYTH: A Pit Bull that shows aggression towards an animal will go for people next.

"Many working breeds have antipathy towards other animals - coonhounds go mad at the sight of a raccoon, foxhounds will not hesitate to tear a dog-like fox to shreds, greyhounds live to chase and maul rabbits and even dog-like coyotes. Even the ever-friendly beagle will slaughter a rabbit, given the chance.

And yet the greyhound, coon and foxhound and beagle are among the friendliest of breeds towards humans. And it is the same with the pit bulldog. His work through the years has been control of other animals - never humans. A correct pit bull is more often than not submissive toward all humans, and adores children.

A pit bull that snarls, lunges or growls at non-threatening humans is NOT typical of the breed." (Written by Diane Jessup)
Pit bulls that do show aggressive behavior towards humans are not typical of the breed and should be humanely euthanized.
MYTH: If a Pit Bull was never trained to fight, it will be safe with other dogs.

Pit Bulls can live peacefully with other dogs and animals. However, the Pit Bull has historically been bred to take down large animals. Early and continual socialization can help a Pit Bull be more animal friendly. Genetics, however, play an important role in how the dog will respond to other dogs and animals.

A Pit Bull that will fight another dog if unattended is a normal Pit Bull. Even if a Pit Bull does not start the fight, it has the potential to seriously injure or kill a dog once in the fight.

The Pit Bull has been bred to not back down and withstand pain until the goal is met. This quality does not carry true in all Pit Bulls, but it is safe to assume it is a potential in any Pit Bull in order to avoid unnecessary problems.
Pit Bulls have a late maturity, and a Pit Bull that was dog friendly at 7 months old may suddenly show signs of intolerance of unfamiliar dogs around two years old. Spaying and neutering the dog may help to prevent "turning on" the genetic urge to fight another dog.

All dog fights are preventable, however. Socialize a Pit Bull slowly with new dogs, and never let them play unattended. Remove items such as toys and food bowls to avoid stress.
Pit Bulls can live happily with other pets; if not left unattended. Even the "best of friends" can fight, and the outcome may be tragic. This can be true for dogs that have been together for years. Often, after the first serious fight, relations between the dogs are never the same.
Keeping that first fight from happening is a great way to ensure peaceful relations for the long run. If there is a multiple-dog household, it is important to separate the dogs when there is no one home.

Many people use crates for short times, put dogs into separate rooms, use kennels, or have outdoor areas set up for separation that are safe and secure. Pit Bulls can get along wonderfully with animals like cats, rabbits, and ferrets, but for safety's sake, never leave them alone together.
MYTH: American Pit Bull Terriers have 1600 P.S.I. in jaw pressure

Dr. Lehr Brisbin of the University of Georgia states, "To the best of our knowledge, there are no published scientific studies that would allow any meaningful comparison to be made of the biting power of various breeds of dogs.

There are, moreover, compelling technical reasons why such data describing biting power in terms of "pounds per square inch" can never be collected in a meaningful way. All figures describing biting power in such terms can be traced to either unfounded rumor or, in some cases, to newspaper articles with no foundation in factual data."
MYTH: American Pit Bull Terriers lock their jaws.

Dr. Brisbin: "The few studies which have been conducted of the structure of the skulls, mandibles and teeth of pit bulls show that, in proportion to their size, their jaw structure and thus its inferred functional morphology, is no different than that of any breed of dog.

There is absolutely no evidence for the existence of any kind of "locking mechanism" unique to the structure of the jaw and/or teeth of the American Pit Bull Terrier.
MYTH: Treadmills are only used to get dogs ready to fight.

Many responsible owners utilize treadmills to help exercise their dogs. This is useful in places where weather prevents outdoor exercise, or in situations where off-leash exercise in not an option.

The treadmill is used by people that show their Pit Bulls, and do sporting activities like weight pull and agility to help keep their dogs in shape. Because Pit Bulls are athletic animals, responsibly using a treadmill can help them be healthier and happier.
MYTH: Pit Bulls brains swell/never stop growing.

This rumor started with the Doberman, and has since been said about game-bred dogs in general. The concept of an animal's brain swelling or growing too large and somehow causing the animal to "go crazy" is not based in truth in any way.

Their brains grow at the same rate as any other dog, and the only time that a Pit Bull's brain is going to swell is if it receives a serious injury. If an animal's brain were to grow too big for its head, the animal would die.
MYTH: It is unsafe to get a Pit Bull from a rescue or shelter because their past/genetics are unknown.

Under the best of circumstances, it is great to know the history of a dog, the history and health of its parents, and what that line of dogs were bred for.

If a person is buying a Pit Bull from a breeder, this information should be of top importance. However, in most shelter/rescue cases this information is not available. The Pit Bull at the shelter will often be a wonderful pet. It is important to know the general behavior of the dog.

Has it shown any aggression towards humans? Most Pit Bull rescues will not accept or adopt out Pit Bulls with any level of aggression or excessive shyness towards humans. How does this dog do with other dogs? Has it shown any undesirable behavior or habits?

It is suggested that a potential adopter of a Pit Bull bring the whole family to meet the dog. Often, shelters and rescues will allow you to take the dog for a home visit to see how they respond to the new surroundings. Most adoptions of a Pit Bull are amazing successes, and the adopter is not only receiving a pet, but they are also saving a life!
MYTH: It is best to get a puppy so that you can make it behave how you want it to.

Many people feel if they get a Pit Bull as a puppy they can train it to not be aggressive towards other dogs and increase the likelihood that the dog will have no undesirable behavior qualities.

Puppies can be a lot of fun and very rewarding, but with a new puppy there is no way of knowing how that dog will act as an adult.

One benefit of adopting a young adult or full grown Pit Bull is the ability to avoid the uncomfortable puppy behavior stage. This includes constant destructive chewing, house breaking, excessive and uncontrollable energy, teething and puppy biting, possible whining, howling, and barking for attention at night, and the time and effort it takes to begin teaching general manners and obedience.
Another benefit is that an adopter can know how an adult Pit Bull will do with other dogs, cats, children, car rides, and other certain situations. Bringing a puppy up in the most loving and social environment can only alter its predetermined genetic urges so much.

In other words, having a dog since puppyhood does not necessarily mean it will have all of the qualities desired in a pet. It may end up having some traits that are undesirable. An adult Pit Bull, however, will have more of an established personality, and an adopter can know what to expect with the dog.
YES IF YOU ARE FEELING IGNORANT, GO WITH IT BECAUSE WELL YOU ARE!!!!

As noted previously, this thread has been resurrected again after about 6 months by someone apparently looking for a "pitbull lobotomy kit" and then not reading the thread long enough to notice that it's all tongue-in-cheek and that our Beloved RR is actually a pitbull fan and would own one if he didn't have a wife and small child to worry about.

My 2¢ here... are people actually looking through google searching for a lobotomy kit? No, really. How is this thread getting found every 6 months?

So, I'm predicting that this thread will be bounced around again for like 4 days until it gets buried under next week's Frost Park.

The paddle bit is far more effective for neutralizing both pit bulls and their over-zealous and quite dangerous owners.

The PitBull Tooth Extraction Kit!

(Just teething :) )

by The Jinxmedic on 4/26/2011 @ 7:43am
– Mon Apr 25, 9:31 pm ET
"SANTA FE, New Mexico (Reuters) – A woman has been mauled to death by a pack of four pit bulls in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, authorities said on Monday.

Margaret Salcedo, 48, was walking alone when the dogs, which had escaped from a fenced yard at a private home, attacked her at an intersection on Sunday afternoon, Truth or Consequences Police Chief Patrick Gallagher said.

A passerby in a car opened his door to intervene, but he stayed in the vehicle when a dog charged him, police said.

"The officer arrived on the scene in less than three minutes, but it must have felt like an eternity to the poor woman being attacked," Gallagher told Reuters.

One of the dogs charged the officer, who shot and injured the animal, police said. All four dogs ran off, and the officer administered first aid to the wounded woman.

Salcedo was bitten on all her extremities and lost a lot of blood, Gallagher said. She was taken to a hospital, where she died within hours, he said."


Yup. "escaped from a fenced yard at a private home". Are you getting it yet? This stuff happens ALL THE TIME.

The pitbulls survived?

by Mofo from the Hood on 4/26/2011 @ 8:48am
Dogs are innocent because they lack the intellectual capacity to choose their actions by methods of informed decision making. Therefore dogs are not responsible for their actions.

However, dog owners, presumably human, do by nature have the capacity to make informed choices and sometimes do choose to own a pitbull. The dog owners, through informed choice, are therefore responsible for the pitbull actions.

Dog owners who choose pitbulls take a calculated risk that they will not be held accountable for their pitbull's actions.

Compassion should be directed to the victim of pitbull actions.

Yay! The Pit Bull thread is back! Now Pierce County has an excuse to enact the "dangerous breeds" ban. The county could announce it with a preface something like this: "We have to enact the Dangerous Breeds ban because of ongoing civil liability issues to the county. We cannot afford another lawsuit".

It's a win-win, actually. By enacting the ban, the county can pass off 100% pecuniary (that's a word, right?) liability to the dog owner- as they were in express violation of law- thus saving the county eleventy million dollars or so per Pit Bull lawsuit.


by The Jinxmedic on 8/25/2011 @ 1:08pm
Here's how a "Responsible Pit Bull Owner" is protected under a "Dangerous Breeds" ban: If the owner actually has a well-behaved Pit Bull (people tell me that these actually exist), that is, one that doesn't go crazy and kill everyone in the neighborhood- then there will be no need to call animal control and no one will know the difference. No lawsuit, no arrests, no Pit Bull chili fed to inmates.

by JesseHillFan on 8/25/2011 @ 6:45pm
I think that there is a city ordinance against too much dog feces (manure).
Check and see.
I do see something here under 5.23.20.Not totally sure if it applies though.


cms.cityoftacoma.org/cityclerk/Files/Mun...


I. Manure and other organic wastes must be collected
daily and stored in a water-tight and flyproof pit or
chamber and shall be removed at intervals
sufficiently frequent to prevent odor problems from
developing. Manure must be disposed of by burial or
in some other manner which will not cause an odor or
fly problem.




What's worse is having neighbors with dogs that poop in your own yard without them cleaning up their pets messes (poop and scoop).
I have a problem with that type however I have been trimming some barberry scrubs (have ultra sharp 1 and a half inch thorns) and have placed them near the shrubs.If the dogs wander onto these thorns no doubt there will be a lot of yelping from these beasts.
You might want to possibly consider contacting code enforcement and complain about the fecal smell.They might actually do something.I don't recommend having a neighborhood fight about it or ill feelings between you two though.Sometimes it's best just to put up with a nuisance though rather than start or have a neighborhood feud.

What would be dirty pool would be to build a very powerful frequency sweeping ultrasonic oscillator.Powerful ultrasonic waves would greatly annoy animals that can hear those frequencies like Rodents,Raccoons,Dogs and Domestic Cats (imagine if someone blared a loud audible siren all the time that would drive anyone crazy to get away) .If you don't own animal pets it's a great way to discourage nuisance animals.
Here is a place to get one.
www.amazing1.com/

www.amazing1.com/ultra.htm


I've had a neighbor who stored lots of excess trash (mostly food waste) outdoors and he was mostly the cause of lots of rodents and raccoons coming into my neighborhood.In fact I had code enforcement wrongly called on me years ago due to a rodent being seen in my yard due to my neighbors rodent food source problem. Because I liked him instead of calling code enforcement on him I shared my garbage can with him (to cut down but didn't eliminate his excess refuge).He has since moved Phew neighborhood garbage problem solved!

by fredo on 8/25/2011 @ 7:00pm
Maybe your neighbor can't smell the odors. So you might offer to pay for him to see an ear/nose/throat doctor and do a complete workup on him. That's what I call a win win.

The fan is a good idea. But maybe a less expensive alternative is to buy a case of those little air fresheners that they sell at the car parts stores. Hang them along the fence. It would make your yard smell less like a latrine and more like an old used car. Just a thought.

Starting a feud with a neighbor that owns any pit bulls, let alone multiple pit bulls, is not the smartest of ideas- at least if we judge by way of some of the "friendly" expletive-laden comments by pit bull owners earlier on this thread...


by fredo on 8/26/2011 @ 9:02am
good point, jinx. unlikely that someone who maintains a pack of snarling, drooly old pit bulls to demonstrate to the world that he's a bad ass MF is going to be concerned with the nuisance created by the animals poop. In fact the nastiness of the yard probably contributes to his street cred.

the best way to deal with this guy is to see if you can buy the property (if it's a rental house) and then select some new tenants. or throw some meatballs over the fence which are laced with barium.
