I remember the original story. Still makes me howl.

I have to admit that I'm glad I came home from lunch and read this there - otherwise, I would have been hard-pressed to explain my chortling to my coworkers.

I am always happy to read it again.

Nope. I last read it two years ago at least, and still knew exactly what it was when I saw the "dogsinelk" filename.

That said, the re-enactment in pumpkin is new; I hadn't seen that before.

Same here. Read it way more than two years ago, and knew exactly what it was based on "dogs in elk." That was hilarious.

Pumpin re-enactment does nothing for me. Took a quick glance then back-buttoned away without going past the first couple of frames. Eh.

I never tire of reading the Dogs In Elk story. I laugh every time. The pumpkin photos are...well...just gravy.

Some things just don't lose their funny, no matter how many times you see (or hear) them. Bill Roper's "Dinner Party" filk is one of those things, and this is another.

Yep. Funniest thing I have ever read. So glad you are perpetuating it. :^) Not sure what I think about the pumpkins, though. I think my imagination does a better job.

I keep wondering why there were two partial elk carcasses in the yard?

We had a dog who got "primitive" in old age, and would take frozen roadkill home for snacks. There was no way you could take his squirrel-sicle away from him. I called him "carrion dog" when he started doing that.

There's a link on the pumpkin art page that leads to an explanation. Apparently her New Guinea Singing Dog was "primitive" and wouldn't eat regular dog food, so she worked out with some local folks that they would help butcher any elk that were being killed during hunting season and give her the meat. So she got a phone call one morning that some elk were available, and she got in her truck to go get the meat, and the dogs got in the truck with her, and when she got out of the truck the dogs also got out and...
...then they delivered the carcasses to her house with the dogs inside because it wouldn't have been safe for the dogs to stay out where the elk had been killed.

Frozen roadkill snacks!
