What?! The Human Nose! (AKA Humans Don't Have Much Sense)


I was thinking more about humans last night. Yet another reason that humans are pathetic is their sense of smell. Humans only have the ability to identify about 5 things by smell: smoke, cinnamon, skunk, bacon, and farts. And when humans do smell farts, they never seem to be able to identify the farter! I mean, how many times have you heard of some poor dog being blamed for a human fart?!

And humans like to brag that they have better eye sight than canines. Yeah, I don't know about that. I recently read that 96 million people in the United States wear glasses. How many dogs do you know who wear glasses? I don't know of any!

Hearing...yeah, like humans can hear anything! Look at their stupid ears. They are stationary and are on each side of their stupid heads! Our ears can move. We can point our ears and listen behind us while looking forward.

Right now I can only think of one thing humans can do better than dogs...play the trombone!

They can use can openers better, too. I think it's that whole "opposable thumbs" thing.

I have chewed open a can before. But then my tongue bled!

i feel bad that we can't pose for christmas pictures with santa claus hats in professional photographer's photo studios, we had to do the whole thing with computer graphics because a cat was involved and he wouldn't take the chance of four dogs and one cat sitting still for three minutes

You are so right. Especially about the farting. My dad tells my Mom that I farted all the time, when it was really him, and she believes him, and then they make me feel like I'm the stinky one, forcing me to destroy something in retaliation. We are the ones on consistent diets - HUMANS are the ones that appear to eat anything and everything!! THEY'RE the farters!!!

I would like to see a canine trombonist. Dogs have much better hearing. I think that I could hear my food falling into my dish from at least 5 miles away.

Only thing the humans have going for then is the thumbs thing! If we had thumbs, the humans would be history!

Tubey, you are so very smart and handsome. That picture of you is pawsome. Our dad blames us for his farts too. What is it with dads?

Our mommy has allergies & sinus problems. She wears this clear, sticky thingee over her nose at night so she doesn't get stuffy or have to use nose drops to breathe. It looks so funny. When she takes it off in the morning, her nose is a little red. Can't imagine us doggies wif one of those thingees on!
