Reindeer Games

Hairy the Dog Man was—in his habitual way—walking down the street puffing on his pipe. With him were, as usual, his two white fluffy dogs. Both were dressed in Christmas sweaters, with wings attached to them, and wearing reindeer antlers.

"On Dasher! On Dancer" cried Hairy. He looked at me and, in an explanatory way added, "they shrunk in the wash."

... I've actually been selling crack.

Nice Girl: Hey, I haven't seen YOU in a long time! What are you up to these days?
Stoner: Selling acid.
Nice Girl: Oh...
Stoner: Heh. Just kidding.

Gratefully Blonde?

Hairy the Dog Man is a thin man who is often seen walking down the street in West Broadway. He is rail-thin, has long hair, a full beard and looks like an aging hippie. He usually puffs ponderously on a pipe, while walking very slowly.

With him he has two small white fluffy toy dogs; possibly bichon fris├ęs or toy poodles. Sometimes the dogs are running freely at his feet, and sometimes he is carrying one or both of them.

He's like a strange cross of Jerry Garcia and Elle Woods.
