Joe Stains

This is the blog of an angry old boston terrier. (and his little brother Tanner who gets to post every Tuesday)

I am back, the party is over

I am so glad to be back you guys! Tanner is DONE posting, I don't care if he gets 30 more presents, I am tired of the little menace and I bet you guys are too.

I have to tell you about a COOL shirt Mom got from our friend over at Pappy's blog! Pappy is the coolest and his Dad made a neat shirt and Mom bought one.

I don't think it fits me??? Um, what its for MOM? Seriously, the woman is so selfish.

Look at the design

Mom loves it and that is Pappy on the shirt!

Another thing I would like to bring up is the fact that Boston Terriers have now been used in TWO Armstrong Flooring ads and in each a stain is made.

I think I need to sue Armstrong for some kind of royalties because they OBVIOUSLY heard of me, the Minister of Stains. They are using my stain notability to sell flooring, I believe I am owed something for this.

Look at that ad! Clearly that is me on the left, then my arch enemy a thunderstorm comes in and then WHAM, a STAIN! This is my life story spelled out in an advertisement!

Even Tanner cannot believe his Doofus eyes!

He is trying to cover the evidence so that I calm down, but I am MAD!

I am boycotting Armstrong flooring FOREVER or until I get my check!

Hi Joe
That is a great shirt. Maybe you will grow into it. I think Arrow might be your distant relative. He is good at Stains too.

You need a lawyer & an agent. I'll be on yur staff. They need to send you royalties for those ads. That isn't right. They need to have gotten permission from you before they did those ads. What nerve! The bucks should be rolling in over this.

Wow, that company really ripped you off!! I'd get a good lawyer if I were you. I bet they snuck into your blog and stole your idea!

Whew...I have some friends who are lawyers if you want to start a law suit. They'd probably pay off just to keep you out of court. How could a judge resist that face, that logic, that Stain!!?

Hey Joe...
Sue...I say sue!!! The stole your whole identity with those ads. They deserve more than just a silly boycott!!!

Good Luck! I will support you!

Hey Joey,
Looks like it just proves how famous or imfamous you are! Can't believe doofus took some time off from working on his corn shank to read a magazine? LOL!

not only would i sue them for using your life story, but their cartoon depiction doesn't even do you justice - you're much better looking than that drawring - it look a little doofus-y !!

maybe they'll give you free flooring..

Hi Joey,

You're right... I think Armstrong Flooring owes you a royalty check. They are clearly using your image and fame!

I hope they paid you for your life story. Love the T shirt.

This is clearly an intellectual property issue. I would expect nothing less from you, Joe. We will boycott Armstrong on your behalf. Besides, if they were a company of any merit at all, would they not be called Pawstrong? Oh ... wait ... I forgot. It's the humans who clean our floors. Poor saps.


p.s. Love the T ... how do I get one?

p.p.s. Did those PB cookies ever arrive, or is some border guard with the munchies stuffing his face? There's been so much bday gifting over there -- we are wondering if they are lost under a pile of sploded stuffy.

Pappy makes great shirts. And you make great stains! You should totally hire a lawyer & get millions of bullies from that company.

You need to sue those stupid floor guys for a bazillion Cuzes! When I'm president I'll outlaw that company!

Eek. Hope you don't come after me for royalties on the millions I made from the FIDO award logo at DWB. That's a hella t-shirt you got there!

I bet someone at Armstrong has been reading your blog. How else would they be able to come up with such realistic commericals. You need to get a good pawyer and get some good treats out of them.

Blogger Suki & Joey said...

First off, that shirt is pawsome! So funny :)

Secondly, yeah! Armstrong TOTALLY owes you some $. That is just crazy that they would steal your life story and sell it to make money. Not cool at all. I'm gonna boycott them, too, ok?

Puggy kisses

Who do they think they ARE over there at Armstrong?? Get your legal team on this...NOW!

Love the Doofus, but I'm SO GLAD you're back at the blog, bud. I have a hard time making it through the day without my daily fix of Stain's sarcasm. I've been dealing with withdrawl.

Goober love,
