Dogs Can Smell Fake DVD’s and Other Malaysian Lies

by Kaiser Edamame

The AP is reporting that the Motion Picture Association of America has trained two labradors to sniff out pirated DVD’s. The dogs are named Lucky and Flo and they have reportedly help uncover 1.2 million pirated DVDs. As a result of this dog-gone amazing success:

Malaysian movie pirates have placed bounties on Lucky and Flo who have so far helped uncover $3.5million in fake CDs and DVDs during raids on warehouses….Theblack Labradors will participate in more Malaysian raids, but they also could be deployed to other countries for anti-piracy operations from time to time, Gane said. He declined to identify which countries were being considered, citing security. Lucky and Flo are the world’s only dogs trained to detect a chemical used in making discs, the MPAA has said.

I call bullsh-t. Bullsh-t. Bullsh-t. Bullsh-t. They are not the only ones. I recently trained my dog to smell forged signatures – now he sits at the bank teller and barks whenever someone tries to endorse a check that’s not theirs. He is the only dog in the world trained to smell a chemical used in forged signatures. He has put an end to identity fraud in New York City and he may be deployed to other cities which shall remain nameless for security reasons. He has a bounty and a blue bow on his head. Also he can smell fake orgasms, which was why I got rid of him in the first place.

Recommendation: Short lies and bullsh-t.

    They can smell the chemicals of any DVD’s. This makes sense since if someone is hiding a large quantity of DVD’s they are probably counterfeit

    P – thanks – my dog can smell any signatures. This makes sense since if someone is hiding a large quantity of signatures they are probably forged.

    But can your dog smell any orgasm? This makes sense if someone is hiding a large quantity of orgasms they are probably faked.

    That dog photo is almost as freaking funny as the post. Well-timed “that’s what she said” quip.

    I don’t know about this MPAA story specifically, but there is no question that “at home” burnable DVDs are different in their chemical coatings than the high-volume production ones (and likely have a different scent as a result). I don’t doubt that any dog with a good grasp of chemistry, a post-graduate education from a reputable University, and a keen sense of smell, could ferret out the DVDs.

    1.2 million home-burned DVDs in warehouses! The mind boggles.
    The story stinks – if it had been dope the value would have been exaggerated by 100s of percents.
