How to tell if your dog is involved in a sex scandal

How to tell if your dog is involved in a sex scandal

Baby Boom-er‏

IS IT TRUE?
How Babies are Made in CanadaCanadian photographer Patrice Laroche surely will have no trouble explaining his kids about the birds and the bees. During his wife Sandra Denis’ pregnancy, the artist created hilarious explanatory photo series titled “How to Make a Baby”. The creative couple planned and carried out their project throughout the whole period of 9 months, taking pictures in the exact same settings as Sandra’s belly expanded.
The pregnancy saga of Sandra and Patrice basically denounces all the traditional cabbage and the stork stories.

The Atheist & The Bear

An atheist was walking through the woods.
‘What majestic trees!’ ‘What powerful rivers!’
‘What beautiful animals!’ He said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.
He tripped & fell on the ground.
He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant moment, the Atheist cried out:
‘Oh my God!’
Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.
‘You deny my existence for all these years, you teach others that I don’t exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.’ ‘Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?’
‘Am I to count you as a believer?’

The atheist looked directly into the light, and said: ‘You are right, It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?’
‘Very well’, said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed, and the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:

‘Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen.’
