Nightmare Austrian Puppy Ad

No wonder he looks unhappy!

So that picture was on a flyer advertising an Austrian dog-interest magazine called Wuff. (“Böse” means “bad.”) Above it, the question: “What differentiates us?” Um, you really want us to tell you?

Wuff pulled the ad after the Jewish community (and, hopefully, everyone else) complained. Though for the record, Wuff’s publisher insists that he didn’t intend the image to remind viewers of Jewish persecution. Really.

This seems like a good time to remind folks that Puppy Bowl VI is right around the corner. Some fierce competitors this year.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Iˇ¦ll right away snatch your rss as I can’t to find your email subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly allow me realize in order that I may subscribe. Thanks.
