I was very surprised this weekend when I checked my email and found a question written in from one of our fans! Since my audience is still growing I don't get email that often (send more!). Anyway, turns out that I have fans in high places! Who you ask?,.....Pope Francis (newly appointed)!
The Popeness writes: "Dear Frank, I wanted you to know I really enjoy your blog and all of your whimsical commentary! You may have heard I'm a simple, down to earth, thrifty guy. I've got some parties to host now that I'm in charge so I need to know where I can find a big coat to I can use when I make an entrance and not break the bank. Can you help?"
Dear Franco - Can I call you that? Our names are eerily similar! I digress - I'm glad you asked. I always tell Beans how important first impressions are. Take for example when our parents have a party. I always throw on my bow tie and cufflinks - that gets everyone's attention! Check out this dapper Doxie (me):
A friend of mine recently hit it big with a song where he rocks a really COOL big giant coat he got from a Thrift Shop (which is also the name of the song). Keep in mind the song has a few swear words in it so don't crank it too loud at work! Here you go! As the song goes "I wear your granddad's clothes, I look incredible, I'm in this big a*s coat, From that thrift shop down the road."
Now to illustrate how cool you would look in a coat like the one from the video - Bean's used his mad Photoshop skills to show you how a coat like that could turn an ordinary person (or dachshund) into the coolest kid in school. Recall the opening scene from the video,.....
So in summary - take $20 down to the local thrift shop and find yourself a big giant coat! While I do encourage animal print I would prefer if it wasn't the real thing :) - my zebra friends will thank you!
Put in a good word for me with the big guy!
