Do Not Call Her “Butkus”

Meet Ellie. Ellie’s that big slobberknocker there. Her hoomin wants to change her name. She has a few new names in mind, but one of them- a homage to a former NFL stardoesn’t sit so well with Big E. (Or maybe Ellie hears it as…”Butt Kiss?”)

From Gawker.



  1. I think Ellie is hearing ‘bupkes.’ As in, “You will get BUPKES!” Grr, snarl.

  2. Showing my age: You can call her Ray, or you can call her J…

    Just don’t call her Butkus.

  3. I never understood why this was supposed to be funny.
    Still don’t.

  4. Dog Lover says:

    I’m not sure why it’s funny but it is. I guess I’m showing my age too. 🙂

  5. *sigh*
    Yeah 😦
    Still don’t know how I got so old so fast

  6. I don’t mind a li’l crassness if it’s funny, but this doesn’t do the job.

  7. whawhawhatsis says:

    Wow, I hadn’t thought of that in years. It’s right up there with the brothers Larry, Darrell, and their other brother Darrell…..

  8. I laughed so hard. She is adorable!

  9. Ellie is a sweetie!!!!

  10. STILL love the Johnson guy!

  11. That is adorable! (the bulldog, not the Johnson dude).
    I am a geezer so I thought the Johnson dude was sorta funny…

  12. I agree. I never could understand why that was considered comedy.

  13. Low standards.. That was before Ellen….
    Also don’t understand why spewing cursewords is supposed to be funny. Then again I like puns,sorta
