This may be the end of Popping Culture.


When two "dogs playing poker" paintings sell for nearly $600,000, there isn't really much reason to keep up the illusion that there's much culture left out there to comment on.

Of course, to some of my readership, dogs playing poker ranks right up there with velvet Elvis as the very pinnacle of art culture.

Just a minute there Mr. Popping Culture. When did Popping Culture limit itself to "elite" culture. Being from the Bluegrass state, my culture is my culture, whether it's Monet or Mork from Ork. I personally gave all four of the Dogs Playing Poker prints for Christmas. I paid much less than $600K though. Whoever did that is a complete moron (hopefully they don't frequent the Popping Culture site).

Speaking of Culture, did anybody see the "One Day at a Time" reunion that is scheduled?

Oh, but Dan: you ain't seen NOTHIN until you've seen the "Jesus of the Week" site, with more tacky Jesuses than you ever wanted to view. It's at http://www.jesusoftheweek.com/jesii/345/index.html and will surely convince you that culture as we know it is down the proverbial toilet.

Dogs simply can't play poker and not because they don't have thumbs. It's because they have NO control over wagging their tails and no one would ever be able to bluff. Silly.

Finally we have someone talking sense around here.

What's not to like? The St. Bernard wins the pot in a bluff!
