read the caption (it’s below the title, in a text-box under the picture) for this picture of former congressman chuckles (dooce’s dog). there are no fritos in the picture. the reference to fritos is because SLEEPING DOGS SMELL LIKE CORN CHIPS. (sleeping cats do too, but not with the same ease-of-identification or intensity. if i’d had a cat first, i don’t know if i’d have noticed the correlation. having had a dog first makes it easy to recognize even in its lesser form)

i have been telling people for my entire life that sleeping dogs smell like corn chips, and nobody has ever believed me. and no, i don’t have any idea what it is about sleep that makes dogs, who do not otherwise smell of corn chips, smell like corn chips. it’s just the way of things. for years i have said to dogs (and sometimes cats) “you smell like sleep” and had their owners stare at me as if i might-should be committed. i have been accused of madness, and of having some strange psychic ability to know when the dog had woken up (i’d just gotten home–how could i possibly know she’d been napping just a few minutes before? BECAUSE SHE SMELLS LIKE FRITOS!). but now, finally, i have evidence that i am not the only person in the world to notice this.

thank god for you, world-wide-web. i have lived alone with my special-ness too long.

…it’s not the sleeping dog, it’s the DOGS TOES that smell like Fritos.
Seriously. In *this* observation I am not alone.

Re: in my specialness…
well, yes, it’s strongest in the toes, but you don’t have to put your face to the *toes* to tell! there’s a definite correlation with sleep, though. dogs-who-just-woke-up smell like fritos all over!
hey, i took that picture. 🙂

This is one of the main purposes of teh InterWebs: allowing people to find other people who share their weird idea/fetish/belief and convince one another that they are not weird. Now that you know that there are others out there who think sleeping dogs smell like Fritos, you can create a forum for People Who Think Sleeping Dogs Smell Like Fritos. In time, there will be a whole People Who Think Sleeping Dogs Smell Like Fritos subculture. Eventually it will fragment into feuding communities of People Who Think Dogs Smell Like Original Fritos, People Who Think Dogs Smell Like Scoop Fritos, People Who Think Dogs Smell Like Flavor Twist Fritos, and People Who Think Dogs Smell Like Chili Cheese Fritos. They’ll argue among one another about which group is the most authentic and adheres most closely to the spirit of the original idea. They will all have costumes and conventions to share their sleeping dogs that smell like Fritos.
