Saturday, July 11, 2009 Marmaduke Analyzed

Starved for entertainment, Phil's neighbor has given Marmaduke a thermos full of coffee.

Marmaduke appears to have emerged from beneath the lawnmower and is now running in circles around it. Once again Phil is making up excuses for his dog's unacceptable behavior, telling his neighbor that the lawnmower reminds Marmaduke of the vacuum cleaner. If this is the case, then Dottie must have her vacuum switch on "reverse" and the Winslow's house must be a dusty mess.

The neighbor has actually left the confines of his fence, and has positioned himself for a better view of whatever it is that is about to transpire. Apparently he either anticipates the dog to bite the hot motor of the lawnmower, or more likely, for the dog to push Phil beneath the machine.

The message: Good entertainment deserves a front row seat.
