Difference a Word Makes (p.12)
German' breed dogs. I have learnt a few things about them over
the years, mostly to do with names and pronunciation.
was pointed out to me that Dachshunds don't "dash" they
tend to "duck", hence Ducks Hoond is more correct than
Rottweilers don't have "wheels". Finally there is a
significant difference between a German Shepherd and a German
Shepherd Dog. That was the stimulus for the obtuse cartoon. The
related article follows:

and wrote: "Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof Woof."
clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog, "There are
only nine words here. You could send another "Woof" for the same
the dog replied, "That would make no sense at all."
