It’s me or the cupcakes

Stains the HypnodogFans of “It’s Me or the Dog” will remember Stains the Hypnodog, who made such an impression on his television debut that he was featured on “The Soup” as well.

If you haven’t seen the show: “It’s Me or the Dog” is essentially the canine version of Supernanny, give or take a leash.

Stains’ pained, hypnotic gaze made him an instant hit with fans, most of whom would probably give a similar look if some random British lady invaded their household, stuck a plate of cupcakes in front of their noses and then told them they couldn’t have any with a clipped “AWAY!” command.

Stains himself is the recipient of a Fantasy T-Wearer award today, with the “I Eat Carbs” shirt at right.

For those of you who didn’t get to see this classic canine moment, here it is.  Disclaimer: no dogs or cupcakes were harmed during the filming of this episode, but a sandwich was horribly maimed.
