A structural engineer, a surgeon, and an attorney were out walking their respective dogs through the park one brisk autumn morning. Each was bragging about whose dog was the superior specimen.

The engineer first decided to have his dog perform a feat of such excellence none of the other dogs could compete.

"Ratchet," said the engineer to his dog, "show them what you can do."

Immediately the dog ran to the nearest pond and began gathering sticks and twigs. Within no time, Ratchet had constructed a bridge out of the sticks and twigs that allowed each of the three men and the three dogs to walk across the pond.

"Good dog, Ratchet," said the engineer. "Here's a biscuit."

The other two men were impressed, but remained unconvinced. The surgeon decided next to show of what his dog was capable.

"Scalpel," said the engineer to his dog, "show them what you can do."

Without further prompting, the dog found a squirrel lying dead on the ground, skillfully split open the rodent's chest with a sharp claw, and began to perform open cardiac massage. The squirrel's eyes opened, and the dog took a strand of its own tail hair and sutured the squirrel's chest cavity closed.

As the squirrel scampered away, the surgeon said, "Good dog, Scalpel. Here's a biscuit."

The attorney, not to be outdone, called his dog over to have him show off his skills.

"Loophole," said the attorney to his dog, "show them what you can do."

The dog sprang to action. Without hesitation, he screwed the other two dogs and took their biscuits.

Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century.
