Frankie = Catfish?

Diane was deeply offended the other day when Johnny's cousin, who came to visit from the Valley, said that her dog Frankie looked like a catfish. To be fair, he was referring to a specific kind of catfish at the moment that it is caught, with its mouth open and gasping. What's more, Catfish Cousin explained, the resemblance was clear only when Frankie's ears were set back.

Readers, I leave it to you to decide.

Exhibit A: Frankie, in profile, ears back, mouth open (photo courtesy of Richard):

Exhibit B: "Texas catfish" (Image shamelessly pilfered from the Web)

Exhibit C: Blinkie (Image courtesy of The Simpsons)

Exhibit D:  Catfish, fried. (Image also shamelessly pilfered)

Is there really any question about which of these "catfish" would go best with a beer  you would want to snuggle with?

  1. HA!!! This is my favorite post ever. And I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that it contains food porn. (or does it?)

    BTW, ever since you commented that Mindy must be part otter, I can't stop thinking that she is. Either that, or sea lion. Regardless, I love the idea and it has stuck.
