Electrified Salami Revisited

The Electrified Salami post was one of the most commented-on posts I've written so far. But I just know you're all thinking (because I can hear the voices in your head as well as my own), "Sure, electrified luncheon meat is all very amusing, but did it work, or was it just for the entertainment value?"

Let me assure you, it was both effective and entertaining. I can't tell you what a relief it is to be able to leave the dogs out to play and not run to the front porch every time someone honks their horn on the road. The dogs are out being picturesque on the front lawn right now, gazing majestically out at the road, but I know they're not in the road. And for this, I will always be grateful to the hot salami ("hot salami," snicker). And to A., whose evil mind hatched the plot to begin with.

The question that people always ask us when we tell this story (and we've told it a lot, because there's just something inherently funny about salami, especially salami with a current) is, "So, will your dogs still eat salami?" The answer to that is most emphatically YES. They almost took my fingers off along with the salami when I tested them on this, so I'm seeing no hesitation. And that makes me happy, because I was feeling a little guilty about depriving the dogs of the pleasures of salami (wait, isn't that what we did when we spayed them? AHAHAHAHA!!) (The inappropriate salami jokes are really never ending, aren't they?).

I think I should end this post now before I say anything else about salami that I'll regret in the morning.

Salami is a fun work isn't.

One of my favorites is A Grand Salami =
