Ephemera for Lunch #5:
Marion and her dog

This is an older photograph than some of the others this week. I'm guessing it might be from the 1930s, based partly on the woman's outfit. Written on the back, in red pen, is "Marion." The dog is not named. (Unless, of course, the dog is Marion and the woman is not named. But that would be really odd. Also, Marion would be an odd name for a dog.)

The dog looks just a little on the spazzy side. If this was a modern photo, the dog might qualify for one of those Buzzfeed galleries, such as, for example "33 Dogs That Cannot Even Handle It Right Now."1

1. Sarah and I love these Buzzfeed galleries. I also love The Onion's mocking of them with "BuzzFeed Writer Resigns In Disgrace After Plagiarizing ‘10 Llamas Who Wish They Were Models’." Ahh, the Internet.

  1. So in both cases where you posted xyz "and her dog," I misread them as "and a hot dog."

    So there's that.
