Cover that anus, Fido!
With Hat Tip to Mahal and a question as to what on earth he was looking for when he found this, I have to report further American paranoia about - erm - uncovered bits. This time it is not nude snow sculptures causing the trouble but animal's - ahem - anuses (should that be 'ani'?) One person's paranoia is another's commercial opportunity and into the breach steps Rear Gear and a tasteful selection of - erm butt plugs (sic).
'Is your pet feeling left in the dirt because of his/her unsightly rear? I’ve got them covered...' writes Ms Rear Gear reassuringly.
Which is nice.
'Rear Gear comes in many designs including a disco ball, air freshener, heart, flower, biohazard, smiley face, number one ribbon, cupcake, sheriff's badge, dice, and you can even make yours custom, so there’s a Rear Gear for everyone'
The item on display above has sold out. Why am I not surprised? Do you have to train your dog/cat/pet armadillo to lift up the flap when he/she needs to...
Oh never mind.
I suspect the young lady's tongue is firmly in her cheek. I wonder about some of her purchasers, though. Here is another animal pic - this time from Cute Overload via Android . Reminiscent of the infamous Crasher Squirrel.
