Lies ... all lies


DALLAS (AP) -- A photographer working for OK! Magazine said he was viciously assaulted Thursday by a pug in the entourage of religious icon Ayatollah Mugsy.

The paparazzi cameraman, who witnesses said had been hounding the famed cleric all evening, identified the assailant as Mugsy's younger brother, Wendell. He said the black pug grabbed his camera and threw it to the ground before stomping on it with his ultra-long legs and then running in circles in a menacing manner.

"All the while, the ayatollah just stood by, smirking," said James Thompson, 44. "He wasn't gonna do nothing to help me. I became disoriented. I thought I was gonna die of dizziness after watching that pug."

Police said they were investigating the incident. It wasn't the first time Ayatollah Mugsy's Pug Life Ministries had been involved in a run-in with the paparazzi. Mugsy was accused of attacking a tabloid photographer in December 2006, although no charges were ever filed.

Late Thursday, TV host Phil McGraw, a.k.a. "Dr. Phil," was reportedly turned away from the ayatollah's North Texas compound after making an unannounced visit to check on the alleged assailant. "I believe he may have rage issues," said McGraw, who appeared to be nursing a bite mark on his lower leg.

Wow, Wendell's been showing a lot of aggression lately between the photog and that incident yesterday with his pops. I wonder if he has some kind of complex because of his ultra long legs?

Disturbing. Funny. Hmmm. Yes, I believe you should attend the writers conference. But keep in mind it is an LDS writers conference, geared toward writing clean fiction and nonfiction. As to LDS publishers, you'll have to take your shot and see.

Two things:
1. Dr. Phil deserved it.
2. I need a bib? YOU need a diaper!

Gosh Wendell is cute, even with those freakishly long pug legs.

*gasp* are you telling people they need BIBS my husband?

Will you look at Wendell? He needs a full rain slicker due to his long freakish legs whilst eating. Granted... he is going through the ugly puggly teenage stage so all will be forgiven when he matures in that handsome devil of a black puggy. Just think my huband... Wendell could be the envy of the harem! What will you do in that case?

Granted - yours truely didn't even go through an ugly stage. I was beautiful from day one and still am. *nods*

Where have you gone my husband? Are you reacting to the latest apology/no apology from "dr. phil" on behalf of Wendell? Or has Wendell gone all Skaterish and left the compound to join the US Snowboarding team in time for X games?? Enquiring minds need to know my husband. And don't touch my flying tomato. He is all mine *cough- my mummys-cough*

He did, Nancy! He did.

It should be noted that there is nothing wrong with wearing bibs. In fact, I sell some at the ministry gift shop.

...And it should be noted that I have started selling diapers graven with your image on cafepress...?
