No More Mr. Brown Eye – Canine Anus Covers ftw?

Posted in LOL, News, Random? by msdisdain on March 27, 2010

The Week reported in its latest issue that “Modest dog owners are buying a product called Rear Gear – a decorative cover for a pet’s unsightly anus. Retailing for $5 under the slogan “No More Mr. Brown Eye,” the Rear Gear dangles from the base of a dog’s tail, obscuring the anus, and is available in a variety of designs, including a flower, a heart, and a sheriff’s badge.”

I did a little interweb digging myself and found more links to confirm the market for unsightly canine anus covers:



“Is your pet feeling left in the dirt because of his/her unsightly rear? I’ve got them covered… Rear Gear is handmade in Portland, OR and offers a cheerful solution to be-rid your favorite pet’s un-manicured back side.”

“While we love our pets dearly for their companionship and free spirits, we have to admit that they could work on their hygiene, not to mention their sense of shame. Some cats and dogs seem almost proud of their backside, always putting it up in your face as you scratch their back. Obviously little pants wouldn’t be practical, but Rear Gear Butt Covers do the trick by dangling in front of the bits you’d rather not see. They come in designs like fuzzy dice, cupcake, number one ribbon, biohazard symbol and more. Sure, butt covers are among the weirder pet products out there, but with a slogan like “No more Mr. Brown eye” we can totally get behind them.”

Quote of the Day: “Now, if they could keep my dog from wiping her ass on the carpet.”

Ansel Adams: Awing Eyes Yet Again

Posted in 1, arT, DMV, News by msdisdain on March 27, 2010

Ansel Adams was commissioned in 1941 by then Secretary of the Interior Ickes to create murals of areas controlled by the Interior. The photos were shelved shortly after the attacks on Pearl Harbor starting the US involvement in WWII. Seventy years later, 26 of them are finally being displayed in an exhibition (by reservation only) in DC. Since it is rather difficult for the average Joe (too soon?) to access these beautiful murals, these prints are now available for public viewing online at the Department of the Interior Website . These photos are spectacular. Ansel Adams: Awing Eyes Yet Again!
