Ortho at Baudrillard’s Bastard asks us to help him analyze the image of the peeing dog in many of the iconic prints from the American Revolution. (There’s one above, to the right of the baby under the table, releasing a stream onto a tea caddy in “A Society of Patroitic Ladies.”) Just click on the link and check it out–he has assembled an impressive collection of examples from both the Whig and Tory perspetives. This is the funniest and most clever use of a blog I’ve seen this year. Once you start seeing the peeing dogs, you just can’t stop!
Seriously, this is awesome doggy bloggy goodness. Well done, Ortho! Your future in academia is very bright.
