Beta Dog is an homage to Alpha Dog of the Week, a segment of Dr. Colbert's award winning news program, The Colbert Report. Beta Dog was created for heroes who are in withdrawals due to the writers being on strike.
In the mush line of life, the Beta Dog is the dog that gets the best view of the Alpha Dog's swinging sac.

Department Charged With Managing Fish, Manage To Kill ThemEdit
How U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service became Beta Dog was due to their Katrina-like response:
- they took forever
- and ignored people who volunteered to help
The United States Supreme Court v. Welfare Queens!Edit
The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to get involved in a state matter, when it refused to hear the case involving a San Diego County law that allows the government to search the home of anyone receiving welfare.
By allowing the law to continue unchallenged, the justices have earned the best view of the Alpha Dog's magnificent hind quarters.
Naturally, this only applies to individuals and not corporations receiving government subsidies.
Demanding the right to review a place of business receiving government funds would be unAmerican.
Witchita Police Officer Who Tased A Deaf Man Edit
from the good folks at Fark
This Beta Dog collar is awarded to the unnamed police officer who was responding to what was determined later to be a false call to enter the home of a deaf man who did not comply with his verbal demands even after being tased.
Way to go, Witchita, who says the coasts are more violent than the flyover states?

Unnamed Soccer Referee Who Knows How To Handle His HooligansEdit
A Malaysian soccer referee, who works as a police officer, retaliated against unruly players who disagreed with a suspension doled out by the ref. The players had just received a "red card" (some kind of gay soccer punishment) and "mobbed" the referee who ran to his car to retrieve his weapon.
After returning to the pitch, the ref discharged his firearm into the air to settle the mob.
An investigation will determine if the officer broke any laws and if any of the players will be charged with rioting.
Artist Jordan McKenzieEdit
Whose exhibit Spent has just enough balls to get a view of the Alpha Dog's sac!
Mr. McKenzie (we hope it's a dude) must surely have been inspired by Dr. Colbert's Stephen Colbert's Formula 401 Pour L'Artiste.
Currently featured in the "Centre 4 Recent Drawing", McKenzie's technique is described in exquisite detail:
- "...these works are produced using human bodily fluids: the artist ejaculates on a sheet of drawing paper and covers it with a layer of carbon dust. When dry, the excess dust is removed, leaving a black imprint of the spurted semen."
And just to make sure you know he's really an artist, someone describes his work as
- "Referencing the universal themes of procreation and creativity..."
McKenzie himself says his drawings are about...
- "...sexual economy, obsession, desire and the crossing between the public/private."
And, that the exhibit is "ongoing."
Thank you fark for the heads up, so to speak.
