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.
