“Dirty, Old Egg-Sucking Dog” VW Commercial…

  – – I’m not a big fan of country music, although I am a fan of Volkswagens, owning a Jetta myself…and it just so happens that a currently-running VW commercial features a Jetta,  Johnny Cash’s music, and an English Bulldog! –Well, it seems that in the commercial the bulldog swallows his owner’s car keys, but fortunately the Jetta’s keyless technology system allows you to operate certain features of the car as long as you have the keys in your proximity.  So even with your keys in your pocket (or dog), sensors in the car will detect your arrival and unlock the door as you grab the handle.  Once inside the car, it can also be started without the keys in the ignition just by pushing the brake and then a button to start the car!

The Johnny Cash song used dates back to 1966 from the “Everybody Loves A Nut” album, with the first stanza as follows:
“Well he’s not very handsome to look at/Oh he’s shaggy and he eats like a hog/And he’s always killin’ my chickens/That dirty old egg-suckin’ dog.”

Beauty, it’s said,  is in the eyes of the beholder…and I’ve heard canines called far worse than “…dirty, old egg-suckin’ dog.”   To illustrate responsible pet ownership, the owner drives directly to the animal hospital, although he does use the dog again to lock the car and roll up the windows!  Surely the bulldog would approve, although not of being called “Shirley.”  Just don’t expect to hear country music coming from the windows of my Jetta!

    Seeing this commercial reminds me of that old riddle:

    “Why do bulldogs have such flat faces”

    “A: They chase parked cars.”
