Governor Crist: Puppies for Everyone
Today's award for Funniest Thing Written in a Florida Newspaper (Intentional Division) goes to the St. Pete Times' Howard Troxler for his Charlie Crist puppy parade dream.
Two guys at the front of the parade were grabbing back the coupons for free puppies. I stopped them. One was named Jeff, the other, Larry.Maybe we just really, really love puppy-related humor, but bravo. Oh, also, there's a video of a pug pushing a stroller after the cut.
Why are you taking away everybody's puppy?" I asked. "Is it because you are mean?"
"I am not mean," Jeff said as he snatched a balloon away from a passing child. "I am just realistic."
