Well, if these Daisy Dukes are the shorts

Yep. "Daisy Dukes" refers to too-short cutoffs. "Daisy Duke" is the TV character who popularized them.

And based on comparison (1) (it was a rough job, but someone had to do it) between the eras, the original Daisy Dukes showed more cheek in back than the shorts that Jessica Simpson wears in the ads for the movie.

It's been hot as hell here (we're on track for a record hot summer) and I completely understand getting comfortable, but please put your *** cheeks back in your shorts before heading out to the supermarket.

I just got back from a beach vacation. Now, I understand that people are going to be dressed skimpier when at a beach and that's okay with me. However, I could not overlook this one guy whose swim trunks were so small on him that there was butt cheek hanging out from behind. He wasn't overweight, but it still just did not look good. Even if they did look really good, I wouldn't particularly want to see them. My daughters were horrified by the whole sight. I hope they remember how stupid it looked should they ever be tempted to walk around in Daisy Dukes or the butt-revealing equivalent.

I'd guess there is that .0001 % of the population ... is a mirror shortage that I am not aware of.

I'm on campus a lot but I haven't any daisy dukes. Instead I'm seeing way too many "muffin tops" ( ... The current style of wearing jeans so tight that the fat squoozes up and over the brim looks very uncomfortable.

I always kind of figured that if it made even models and actresses look fat, it probably was not a good idea.

One of the comics in the Washington Post had cartoon this week showing way too much guy in way too little suit, and a policeperson writing him a ticket. In the back was a sign saying "Speedo Limit".

I got this email (below my sig) from a reliable source and am posting it here bec. not much seems ... dumped it back at the shelter when they left the movie set. Below is a number to comment on this..

Sorry I'm coming in late on this one, but as someone who has just finished a feature film as a dog trainer, I thought I'd look into this.

First of all, calling WB isn't doing to do a darned thing. They don't own the animals - they hire animal agencies who provide the animals.

According to the IMDB, there are two trainers credited: Sara Katzmark and Senia Phillips. I Googled both of them, and here's what I come up with...

Sara Katzmark is a well-known and accomplished obedience competitor in Georgia. She is probably the owner of the dog. The way this stuff works is owners of well-trained dogs sign up with an animal talent agency if they wish to get their dogs into films, commercials and/or print work. When an appropriate job comes up, the agency lines up the animal. This is probably the case here.
Senia Phillips is listed as the second trainer. She owns an animal talent agency in Georgia called "Southern Animal Talent Agency." She has been providing animals for film and television for years.

I sincerely doubt the story about yanking some random Basset from a shelter, going through all the time and trouble of giving it the level of training and socialization and desensitization it takes to make a dog workable in a film and then turning around and dumping it. Believe me, I KNOW what it takes for a dog to play a major role in a film! I'm aware that some animal talent agencies will get dogs from shelters and train them for a particular role and will sell them after the film, but to just dump it in a shelter? Uh uh. My bet is that "Flash the dog" is an obedience dog belonging to Ms. Katzmark.
It IS possible that Ms. Phillips got a dog out of the shelter to use as a double and returned it. This dog would have to have had a wonderful temperament and would have received some training, and I would think that its involvement in the film would make it much more likely to be adopted, even if it never showed up in the final cut.
But if you're really concerned about it, don't take my guesses as Gospel. Look up the names yourself and make some phone calls, but not to Warner's. They would have no idea where the dog came from nor where it went after filming was completed, and their responsibilities would include ensuring that the dog or dogs are treated humanely during the film and nothing more.

Kind Regards,
Tracy

The email came to me from someone who holds an appointed state position in animal welfare. I've never known this person to pass on a rumor to the email list.
I had looked on Snopes before I re-printed it here, to do what I could to make sure that it wasn't already known as an urban legend.

Seems to me if a dog had been "borrowed" from a shelter to act as a stand-in, that that would have been publicized by the shelter. As you note, that dog would have been easily adoptable afterwards. Apparently, it has not been so publicized. I can't find it, anyway.
I'd be delighted to learn that there was a misunderstanding somewhere along the way, and that the email is in error bec. of that misunderstanding. However, even well-respected people in professions sometimes make big goofs, don't they.
