Capo...Best legal knuckleduster you can get.They're frit. It's the capo.
Clearly the patriarchy has deep and ancient roots
I really had no idea about any of this. Starting with the age of the breed and its Imperial Chinese origins. Old Steppenwolf has come a long, strange way since the end of the last glacial.Yeah, I know it's hard to believe just how sacred pugs (Lo Zei ) were to the Chinese Emperors back then.
Not only did they have their own luxury quarters but also a 24/7 armed guard and commoners were not allowed to own one on the pain of death.
It will have to be an ongoing trend for people to get alarmed or they will simply put it down to freak hot spells.Looks like July might follow June as the hottest month in the instrumental record, although obvz have to wait and see. No idea why more people aren't terrified.
Here's one of ours - they sit either side of the fireplace and keep evil spirits from entering the house via the chimney. Since they were installed, we've had no more nonsense from the fat bearded guy in red

Sorry for the crap photo, but I got snarled at by H who is watching TV
Them's lions, I think... temple guardians...
They are called lion dogs ( Fu dogs ) but many of those old stone statues depicting lions had very similar faces to this which is a pug or Fu dog as I think they were originally called.
I think those are supposed to be lions or Fu dogs as they became known as by the first European traders. Lions are not native to China so a bit of artistic license was obviously taken by the people who carved them.
