For the dogs

Dog must be an Adele fan: Malachy, a 4-year-old Pekingese dog, won best in show at the 115th Westminster Kennel Club dog show Tuesday night to the delight of the crowd.

The dog further endeared himself to the audience when hip-hop star Nicki Minaj attempted to restage her incomprehensible Grammy Awards exorcism performance, after which Malachy lifted his leg and peed on the pop star.

It’s a pass/fail class: The Eglin Air Force base school where bomb technicians from all branches of the U.S. military learn their craft has been ordered to remove the motto “Initial Success or Total Failure” from classroom walls because it could be viewed as disrespectful to those who have died in the line of duty.

It replaced an earlier motto, “Cut the Red Wire. No, No, I Mean the Blue Wire. I Think.”

Breakfast menu: A semi-truck carrying eggs crashed and flipped on I-5 in north Seattle, causing minor injuries and backing up traffic for about an hour.

Choose your favorite:

(A) The accident proves the adage: You can’t make an omelet without tying up traffic;

(B) The accident is part of this complete breakfast;

(C) Denny’s is offering a special on scrambled eggs this week.
