This is a Joke Right?

Which one of you is my CE?

* Comment From Editor : OK, the problem is there is no such animal as an “Old English Bulldog.” There is an “English Bulldog” and an “Olde English Bulledogge.”

As a CE I am empowered to fix misspellings in titles but am not allowed to wantonly remove words. Therefore, the new title is going to be “Bathing an Olde English Bulldogge.”

Here’s where you can find this new breed’s short history. It has other websites, too. http://www.oldeenglishbulldoggekennelclub.com/

Probably most of your article can survive intact, because bathing one wrinkly dog has to be pretty similar to bathing another wrinkly dog, but it does need to be fine-tuned to this breed and this spelling and give some specific information about the breed that does not apply to other bulldogs.

Although AP doesn’t normally capitalize dog breeds except for words coming from proper nouns, like “English,” we are going to capitalize “Olde” in this case so readers know we are not talking about an individual aged animal. In this, “Olde English bulldogge” will piggyback on the dictionary’s logic of “Old English sheepdog.”

Thank you for your cooperation!

Um.. please tell me its a joke. Cause all I can think is,. Are you shitting me? I think I'm being trolled. <--scratch that I HOPE I'm being trolled.

That reminds me of something I forgot to note in my rewrite comments. We need the breed name to match with the rest of the copy, so please rewrite the article in Olde English. I suggest reading Beowulf (untranslated) before revising. To get you started, here's the prologue.

Hwät! we Gâr-Dena in geâr-dagum Þeód-cyninga Þrym gefrunon, hû Þâ äõelingas ellen fremedon. Oft Scyld Scêfing sceaõena Þreátum, monegum mægõum meodo-setla ofteáh. Egsode eorl, syõõan ærest wearõ feá-sceaft funden: he Þäs frôfre gebâd, weôx under wolcnum, weorõ-myndum õâh, ôõ Þät him æghwylc Þâra ymb-sittendra ofer hron-râde hýran scolde, gomban gyldan: Þät wäs gôd cyning! Þäm eafera wäs äfter cenned geong in geardum, Þone god sende folce tô frôfre; fyren-Þearfe ongeat, Þät hie ær drugon aldor-leáse lange hwîle. Him Þäs lîf-freá, wuldres wealdend, worold-âre forgeaf; Beówulf wäs breme (blæd wîde sprang), Scyldes eafera Scede-landum in. Swâ sceal geong guma, gôde gewyrcean, fromum feoh-giftum on fäder wine, Þät hine on ylde eft gewunigen wil-gesîõas, Þonne wîg cume, leóde gelæsten: lof-dædum sceal in mægõa gehwære man geÞeón. Him Þâ Scyld gewât tô gescäp-hwîle fela-hrôr fêran on freán wære; hi hyne Þâ ätbæron tô brimes faroõe. swæse gesîõas, swâ he selfa bäd, Þenden wordum weóld wine Scyldinga, leóf land-fruma lange âhte. Þær ät hýõe stôd hringed-stefna, îsig and ûtfûs, äõelinges fär; â-lêdon Þâ leófne Þeóden, beága bryttan on bearm scipes, mærne be mäste. Þær wäs mâdma fela, of feor-wegum frätwa gelæded: ne hýrde ic cymlîcor ceól gegyrwan hilde-wæpnum and heaõo-wædum, billum and byrnum; him on bearme läg mâdma mänigo, Þâ him mid scoldon on flôdes æht feor gewîtan. Nalas hi hine lässan lâcum teódan, Þeód-gestreónum, Þonne Þâ dydon, Þe hine ät frumsceafte forõ onsendon ænne ofer ýõe umbor wesende: Þâ gyt hie him âsetton segen gyldenne heáh ofer heáfod, lêton holm beran, geâfon on gâr-secg: him wäs geômor sefa, murnende môd. Men ne cunnon secgan tô soõe sele-rædende, häleõ under heofenum, hwâ Þäm hläste onfêng.

Thank you for your understanding!

At least Willie didn't quote from "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight." I had a TA who was REALLY into that shit. Wanted to fucking strangle the dork.
