Pugs are weird-looking, ungainly little things aren't they? I can't fathom why so many people go ga-ga over them. I know it's a prejudice, but as with poodles and chihuahuas, I can't help feeling they're dogs for people who don't like proper dogs.

They have really strong personalities. You can tell a great many pugs apart from each other really quick strictly by how they act. I love ‘em. My wife thinks they are ghastly and it’s hard to argue. Mucus management is not their strong suit.

800 pound fine, he got off lightly enough. He says he's gonna appeal it, while i'm no lawyer I think he should cut his losses. Having a former leader of a right wing group there as support doesn't help his case. Though in fairness there's not much he can do about who supports or doesn't support him.

I must protest. I haven't known a single dribbly pug, and I've known a few. Breathing issues, yes, which is why I'd never get another short-nosed dog.

I love 'em too but they're not the brightest. Something to do with how their brains sit in the squished skulls.

Shock news, unfunny cunt with questionable cause turns out to be a cunt.

I've heard him mentioned on here and watched the clip. That was my impression too.

Talking about comedy having limits, there was a documentary years ago called The Aristocrats where various famous stand ups tell the most offensive joke ever.

I hadn't seen the youtube video in question. I have now. I thought the sieg heil bit was funny.

I can see why people would be offended by the "do you want to gas the Jews" bit. However, it seems to me that it was clearly done for humourous purposes (pug face reaction etc).

I don't think humour should have boundaries.

When things are meant with the intention only of grossing people out or offending people or stirring up hatred but it's coated with 'humour', the "I was only joking" defence" - that's a different thing. Applying law to that, though ...

Oh joy.
The wonderful algorithms of Facebook just now conjured up an ad for a Nazi Pugs Fuck Off-T shirt, after I finished reading the thread.
