McGruff the Crime Dog has a blog (E-I-E-I-O)

McGruffTV viewers will remember the series of commercials that featured the animated law enforcement icon McGruff The Crime Dog, the ones that told us to "take a bite outta crime." He now has a blog.

Yup, the crime-solving (or crime-preventing) canine takes his paws and taps out blog entries for the kids to read, handing out advice about safety, health, and life in general. You can also read stories on how McGruff became a crime dog (he used to hang out at the local police station and listen to cop stories and asked cops how he could help - the cops said "what's a dog going to do to fight crime?" - I guess a talking dog was OK but a talking dog that fought crime was completely unrealistic) and play McGruff games.

I don't really agree with his assertion that they best way to deal with bullies is to just ignore them. I don't think that has been good advice since an early episode of The ABC Afterschool Special in the '70s. These days you need a weapon or at the very least a good lawyer.

McGruff was awesome! I remember there used to be a toll free number at the end of the commercials where you could get free McGruff comic books. Those were the days

How lame is it that I laughed for 5 minutes on your Old MacDonald plug?! Thanks. "Macgruff the Crime Dog has a blog" is now stuck in my head for the night!
