If Al Qaeda ran its own dog breeding program to craft a symbolic mockery of Great Britain and the U.S. Marine Corps, they could not have done better than the English Bulldog.
This is a dog that gets winded walking to the end of the driveway, has shot hips, cannot mate or give birth on its own, and has a mouth so dysfunctional it can barely eat food out of a bowl.
Al Qaeda bonus feature: A significant percentage of British Bulldogs are, effectively, water-boarded every moment of their lives thanks to their too-short face structure and too-tight nostrils.
Special deal for Al Qaeda buyers: Bulldogs will fold up and die on their own in the heat. How perfect is that?
