A few years ago I got this random idea to create a new breed of dog by mating a Great Dane with a Chiahuaua. I was never quite able to work out the logistics (nor find a Chiahuaua safe step-ladder to assist in the conception) but I did come up with a name for this new breed-- The Buscemi (named after actor Steve Buscemi). The mental image I kept getting of such a dog was a rather wiry bug-eyed mutt. And while Buscemis is no mutt he is rather wiry and bug-eyed... and what better way to honor one of America's more underrated actors than to name a new breed of canines after him? And if this unholy union ever comes to fruition the least we can do is give him the pick of the first litter. Right?
We'll have to warn him, "Just don't name him Mr. Pink, he really doesn't like that name."
