Some Good Science

Science! has shown that just as yawns are contagious between naked apes, so too do we dogs yawn with you! They say that the yawning indicates that we are capable of empathy but, really, we are just bored by you. You can see video of the yawning dog here.

Here I am nodding off just thinking about how boring you are:

Wall-a-roo-hoo! I can tell you what won't be boring Me, you, Stanny and Joe Stains, in the stands, guzzling beer, wolfing hotdogs, and heckling the pawletes at the Pawlympics. They should be judging US! In fact, I'm thinking of starting the OffLympics as a counter culture movement to the Pawlympics. I mean really. Haven't we accelerated to the point where the counter culture can actually proceed the dominant?

P.S. I yawned through your whole post, in honour of you.

We heard that story on NPR. And they said that dogs use their yawns to communicate much more than humans. Stress, calming down each other, submission, and we can catch a yawn from a human, and they can catch it from us!!!
We're so much deeper than they are.
