        Lamest new thread ever?

        Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

                      That's nothing compared to the hat he's worn for the last 10 years to get his head to be juuuuuuust the right shape...

                            Is there a day where it's not really windy somewhere in the atmosphere in 23 miles?

                              Don't tell anyone, but he's actually going to do it in front of a green screen in a warehouse in Burbank.
