Lighten up for a moment

People I know this is a very serious issue and I am not taking it lightly but may we all take a moment for a little chuckle .
I read an arcticle in a paper yesterday about a 150 lb pitbull , in another one I read about a jaw locking mechanism I really don't know who they were quoting at the time .
We last night I had a dream I was walking at the back of my farm and there it was a 150 lb pitbull sporting a jaw locking mechanism . The dog was carrying off with a small bull firmly locked into its jaw by this very new and shiny external jaw locking mechanism , it even had a patent # .Notice I say "it" I think the dog was a female so I ran pretty fast fearing there may be a 250lb male somewhere out there . Next thing I know I see this flash of light and this ufo takes off .
Sorry if this offends anyone but those 2 quotes were so rediculous all I could do was chuckle .

140lb pit bull

I am proud to say that this is the town I live in. *sarcasim* I have offically begun to boycott this paper and have told them so in a lengthy letter.

I really dont understand why they just cant start something where new buyers of pit bulls go through a lengthy process to adopt one.just as you would when you adopt a child,just screen new owners instead of banning the breed..............

i got a good laugh from the 150lbs pitbull too. that's probably the biggest pit ever. now i've heard of some not-so-reputable breeders in cali that cross pits with bulldogs to get these massive dogs that can reach those weights, but they can't be registered as an 'american pit bull terrier' because their front paws face inward like a bulldog.

I just emailed the editor and asked for a picture or proof that this is a pit because I want to see a pit 15 pounds less than my mastiff.
