re: the dog language artice: "This is That" is a comedy program - think like "the Onion" - so those headlines are always jokes! Their headlines are always a riot- for example, others this week include "Texas town adds sugar to water supply to encourage residents to drink more water", "Kingston, Ontario to ban "scary pumpkins" from Halloween next year", and my personal favorite recent story "University of Nanaimo sued after refusing to accommodate student with 'visual allergies'" (in which a woman complains of breaking out when she sees terrible outfits lol)
