It's Me or the Dog: Cupcake Trance

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Funny story: this is exactly how I look when John places a plate of cupcakes in front of me and says, "Away!"

Of course, then I go all [censored] on his [censored] and get them anyway. Lesson learned!



Note: Stacey initially sent me The Soup's version, but this was the only embeddable video file I could find. So my apologies for the crazy spaghetti cat at the end.

I feel bad for that dog, it's cruel to stuff foodstuffs in his face then say "NO!"

I wonder if they bother rewarding him for not knocking down the cupcake-laden meanie and enjoying the cupcakes.

However, it is hilarious, poor dog.

That's one creepy cupcake trance.

I LOVE that dog.

soflavolgal said...

OMG...I so know the crazy in that dog's eyes. I teach second grade and when someone brings in cupcakes with little spiderman ring flotsoms on them and places them on the classroom counter until lunch, that is what I see all during reading group. It seems no one gives a darn if Officer Buckle ever finds out Gloria is acting out his saftey lessons behind him on those days. This clip is just too funny.

You should never apologize for a spaghetti Cat!

That dog freaks me out like no other. But I can understand the love of cupcakes.

Lilly said...

Honestly I'm not sure which is funnier....the crazed dog, or the nomnomnom spaghetti cat!

HorribleLicensePlates said...

I can relate to that dog too.

Sigh.

Hilarious vid!

Jacob and Andrew said...

your apologies?! no way! as an obsessed Soup watcher I am more than ecstatic Spaghetti Cat was included..too hilarious...

Catie said...

Oh. my. gosh. That dog looked possessed and the "crazy spaghetti cat" was actually quite "funny" because it was so unexpectedly random. I'm still laughing. Five stars. :D

WV: angervic. Sounds Swedish.

Yeah, I get the same look with cupcakes when I'm on a diet :)

Carin said...

Oh my! that was too funny. I still think that dog should have just jumped all over those cupcakes and enjoyed, now THAT would be a good video =D

Eeeek!!!! said...

I didn't know that Spaghetti Cat had a "voice."

Poor dog. I look at cupcakes that way too.

Anonymous said...

I actually saw that on animal planet when it was on...But the spaghetti cat was a great random! lol.

That dog is priceless.

The Cobbs said...

That is hilarious. I feel at one with the dog.

shinejewelry said...

whoa, the dog's eyes are freaking me out....

Cool Design Shelties said...

Poor dog....I can totally relate to this dog...I look like the same when someone deny me my cupcake ;o)

This is Joel McHale's favorite clip and we get to see it every Friday at 9pm! Preeeetty funny!

Cance said...

my husband and i laughed hysterically when we saw this on the soup. like, laughing so hard you eventually go silent and are shaking all over and crying at the same time. too good. thanks for the reminder :D love the blog! viva wrex!

D.B. Echo said...

I've seen Border Collies do that with their eyes, apparently in an attempt to hypnotise sheep into being corralled. Perhaps the dog is trying to convince the flock of cupcakes to go somewhere safe from the mean old lady.

Katherine said...

Looks like my 2 year old! And my kids LOVED the kitty at the end! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU! for my daily laughs!

Angie said...

Zoltar -- no, actually it's not cruel. It was a great training session, and you have to watch the whole thing to see how she progressed from simple situations to this more difficult one. And yes, he was rewarded for controlling himself and not grabbing a cupcake. :)

Mary said...

It kind of looks like the dog is having a seizure. That glassy, fixed gaze just ain't right.

Jessica Brown said...

The moment I first saw the video I thought, "Man, I know that feeling!"

Poor Stains. I hope Victoria gave him his cupcake after all.

vampi said...

my first thought upon watching this episode of the soup...they are teaching the dog the errors of cup cake cakes :)

elesa said...

Holy cow! His face makes me laugh so hard it hurts! Thank you so much. Now, whenever I am feeling blue I can watch that video and laugh until I pass out. Hooray!

Meagan said...

Mmmm cupcakes
Some one give that good dog a cookie!

Mella said...

poor doggie

Tricia said...

That was too funny! My dogs would have knocked you over and eaten them anyway :P

Hyla said...

You've got a blog award over on my blog!!! Stop by and claim it!

Alycia said...

LOL! how funny :)

Nimras said...

"I feel bad for that dog, it's cruel to stuff foodstuffs in his face then say "NO!" "

It's actually the best way to teach him to not lunge for things that are really tasty but may not be good for him -- like anti-freeze or prescription pills.

Don't worry, the dog is always rewarded for leaving a jackpot like that! I do similar things to my puppy students, but I'll use dried meat instead of cupcakes. "Away" (also known as "Leave It") is one of the most important things for a dog to know, and is one of the commands most likely to save the dogs life someday, along with "Come".

rosie said...

I think spaghetti cat makes the video perfect!

Tatyana said...

spaghetti cat was my favorite part! lol

donna@stuffcookswant said...

OMG!! Hilarious! We have an Australian Shepherd with blue eyes and she looks possessed like that sometimes...although we don't stick cupcakes in her nose! And we say "leave it" instead of "away", but same idea. Thanks for sharing...love it!

butcherbaby said...

OMG! that is so funny. there is no amount of training that would keep my dog from devouring them before i could get the command out of my mouth!

karina said...

That was just creepy! My Dal knew the "leave it" command, but she never made eyes like THAT!

Love spaghetti cat!

Melodi said...

My husband says the dog has more self control than I do. I'd have to agree.

scrappinfox said...

I am STILL laughing at that clip. I'm so glad you included it, spaghetti cat and all.

delaney55 said...

I sorta get that look whenever cake in any form is put in front of me especially if it is chocolate!

Beckaaaayyy said...

Well, I for one think the spaghetti cat at the end is the icing on the [cup]cake! LMAO!

Beckaaayyy said...

PS, Who names their dog "Stains"???

Elvira said...

that dog should have lunged for that woman's throat. that'll learn her for teasing him. Poor doggie. Stupid trainer.

Amy said...

That dog looks possessed. ROFL I know he's thinking, "I'll get my cupcake. Just turn your back for one stinkin' minute..."

And the nom nom cat? Cute.

Amy said...

Forgot to say: I've been looking for that exact type of Aussie Shepherd for years now. Come to my house, kiddo. We've got cupcakes! (sing song)

Woolen Wishes for Baby said...

I love me some Joel McHale.

KVB said...

Okay, maybe its just me, but that dog reminds me of Alice Cooper. Seriously, Google Alice Cooper images right now!

The wide, dark eyes, the black on the side of the lips, half growl...

Jessica Denise said...

No matter how many times I've seen that video, I still crack up when it comes on. It is hilarious.

Re: who names their dog "stains"?

My guess would be 12 year old boys who never grew up and enjoy yelling a certain command to a dog with that name. Forgive my crudeness.

*Ahem* What would one say if they wanted a dog named "stains" to move to a place closer to the owner? Sit? Stay?

Wait for it...

Yeah.

Seema said...

i LOLd all the way through, and for 5 mins after, that insane video

Spaghetti Cat was great!

Toriisen said...

Creepy dog, cute cat

Legna said...

The cat is pretty fun..nom nom nom

Redd said...

HAH! Growing up around cowdogs of a variety of breeds, I know that look. Whoever is complaining about Victoria being mean dosen't know much about dog training. Stains would have indeed been rewarded with something better than cupcakes, (in his mind, anyway, I don't think there is ANYTHING better than cupcakes)and he learns not to eat people food that is potentially harmful (Think for instance, if those cupcakes had chocolate frosting).

Anonymous said...

Never never feel the need again to apologize for Spaghetti Cat. Spaghetti Cat is well just sort of awesome!

And I agree poor dog, that is just plain mean.

Anonymous said...

I honestly don't know what's funnier...the dog that looks like it suddenly got taxidermied or the nom nom spaghetti cat (which makes me laugh everytime it's on TS).

Anonymous said...

I saw this when it originally aired on AFV. Hilarius!

And this: "I teach second grade and when someone brings in cupcakes with little spiderman ring flotsoms on them and places them on the classroom counter until lunch, that is what I see all during reading group." made me literally LOL

I always wondered if spaghetti cat and smelly cat were related.

little gator said...

Spagetti cat is making the noises a cat makes just before vomiting a hairball.

Vaza said...

Must. Eat. Cuppycake. @___@

TFHZone said...

That clip may have been shown on TS, but it's from Mike & Juliette. Since Spaghetti Cat appeared on their show in a "Pet Trick" contest, his photo has been popping up every now and then since. You never know when he'll show up!

Lyn said...

omg! This is the funniest thing I've seen in awhile! I think because of the cat at the end. Ha!

jules said...

Spaghetti cat is awesome, I think it rounds out this video nicely even if the editing is a little thrown together.

Elska said...

I'll be honest, the cat at the end cracks me up.

haha, spaghetti cat :]

Giusi. said...

OMG I WANT THAT DOG! I LOVE HIM!awwww <3

this was too funny for me.. hahaha i sent the link to my sister because the other day she made cupcakes. She had 6 of them and left them on the counter to cool down. She went to the bathroom and when she returned.. they were GONE!! her dog Max had eaten them all! bahahaha
:D

Yotan said...

that poor dog is named "stains".

i'll leave it there.

Anonymous said...

YEAY! STAINS! the soup's version was really funny too.

WolfenM said...

(Yes, I know this comment is very late -- can you tell I'm surfing the archives?)

This remindes me of something that happened when I was little. My mum was making cupcakes for a school party and ran out of an ingredient after the first batch. She left the ones already done to cool on the counter and ran to the store. Meanwhile, I had gone to bed. I got woken up out of a sound sleep by my father yelling at me for eating all the cupcakes. Mom didn't believe it was me, though; there was no paper left from the cups in the trash or anything, and how could a seven-year-old eat a dozen cupcakes anyway? To prove it, when she finished the next batch, she offered one to the dog, and Shadow ate it -- paper and all.(Dad insists that he was just kidding about me eating them. Yes, so you woke me up by screaming at me at 11 PM on a school night .... XD)

Darci/Bridgit said...

Actually, I think the spagetti cat added to the cuteness =)

Kathleen said...

I completely agree with KVB - that is absolutely Alice Cooper in canine form. Wow.

Spaghetti cat made my day! lololol
