Spuds MacKenzie, The Dog That Drinks Beer

My family is considering getting a dog. I have a short checklist for the perfect dog: friendly to kids, doesn’t bark much, and is, of course, a super party animal.

  1. I think I have mentioned this on the site before, but I had a large sized Spuds MacKenzie poster in my room when I was younger. It was him in a Hawaiian shirt. I think I won it at a carnival or “down the shore”.

  2. In 8th grade, I got sent to the principal’s office for wearing a Spud’s MacKenzie shirt to school, because it was deemed inappropriate. The principal gave me the option of turning my shirt inside-out, or calling my parents and having them bring me a change of clothes.

    And that was the one day that I, at least intentionally, wore a shirt inside-out at school.
