Those Pants Must Have Provoked That Dog Somehow

posted by on September 23 at 8:30 AM

A political candidate out knocking on doors encounters a pit bull running loose

“I didn’t have a chance to be scared because it was more of a surprise,” he said. “The dog just came out of nowhere, lunging down there and it was almost airborne moving at me and that quick it latched around the pants and kind of ripped around the whole pants.”

Says the pit bull owner…

The owner of the dog, who was not identified, said the dog didn’t attack Dahlberg, but admitted the dog ripped the pants of the former Duluth city councilor.

Thanks to Slog tipper Starfire.

That pair of pants was asking for it.

Maybe they were pleated-front khakis and the pitbull was a fashion police K9.

Yeah. If the guy was wearing Dockers he was totally asking for trouble.

You know me by now; I'll never cut a pit bull any slack. But in this case, I'm tempted. Politicians deserve whatever they get.

In this case, how does one rip the pants without an attack? Is the dog in question a tailor? Was it just preparing to making a alteration?

Maybe it was a Greek pit bull and was attempting to tell the following joke:

Q: What did the Greek Tailor tell his customers?

A: Euripides pants; Eumenides pants. Aeschylus how.

More importantly, there is a Slog tipper named Starfire? If I weren't married...

But was there lipstick on the pants afterword?

@6- Nice. You make me want to read the Oresteia again:)Aloud. To my pit bull.

What political party does this candidate and his or her pants belong to? There might be justifiable cause in this case.
