Rah walked the dog and the dog won.

So, once a few months back, we were coming home, and we saw one of our roommates. She was walking the dog. (Our other roommate got a dog.)

The dog is about fifty pounds, but he’s half German Shorthaired Pointer. He’s very, very, energetic, and while he certainly can be quite intelligent… Sometimes his heart’s just not in it.

The girl is a tad over a hundred pounds.

Ever since then, a song has been running through my head. It is set to a perhaps-recognizable tune, that being the Clash’s iconic I Fought The Law:

Goin’ to the park in the hot sun
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
He needed training cause he had none
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
He’s on a leash and he pulls so bad
Guess her race is run
He doesn’t care that it makes her mad
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Rah walked the dog and the
Goin’ places at a dead run
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Pissed off the girl but the dog had fun
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
He’s on a leash and he pulls so bad
Guess her race is run
He doesn’t care that it makes her mad
Rah walked the dog and the dog won
Rah walked the dog and the

  1. Do you in fact mean "possibly-recognizable" rather than "perhaps-recognizable"? :-)

    (If you are mystified by this question then the answer is no.)
