Don't point that gun at me, PAMELA! Greenland is mostly ice, whereas Iceland is

Some of the dog owners have begun, holding up spit, soaked, tennis, balls and well chewed frisbees and they are demanding that they be let into the dog park so that they may get some exercise with their loving boil canine companions, one of them even shouted. My dog has p, really badly sea, and then they pointed at their dog and the dog was shifting its weight nervously from leg to leg its eyes, anxious and its cheeks obviously flush underneath the dark fur. In response to this, heightened civil disobedience Mayor Cardinal announced that she and the City Council will hold a meeting today to discuss their various options for changing the dog park policy.
Council speaking in unison said they ate it this idea and then they sent a dozen or so helicopters across the city of night. Vale sprang every citizen with sedatives.
