when in Rome


For some reason, I always enjoy pictures of famous people playing pool (or, in this case, snooker). Especially beautiful famous people, although I bet that little dog was an annoying sumbitch. I'm also willing to bet this is a staged shot, not just some down time between shots, because I'm pretty sure she's aiming for the wrong ball.

Jayne Mansfield, right? Wonder if this was the infamous glove compartment dog?

Yep, it's Jayne, but no, it ain't the dog. Proof, but don't click if you don't want to see a dead chihuahua: http://www.findadeath.com/Deceased/m/Mansfield/dead%20dog.JPG

That's too weird. We just had a severed chihuahua head on our lawn this morning. We don't know who it belonged to or who/what killed it. Made me so sad to think of someone missing their little pet.

That's terrible! I'd be a little freaked out.

Not the most pleasant way to start the day, to say the least. We're out in the country, so I'm hoping it was a coyote or a large bird that did the dead and one of my dogs brought it home like a prize.

DTG,
Thanks for the http! I'll check it out.

Steph,
That is too awesome. A chihuahua head? Really? Wow.

Love you both,

SB

Steph: that makes a lot more sense.

SB: I haven't searched around that site any, but it sort of looks interesting.
