When the magician saws the girl in half, everybody asks, "How'd he do that?"

What I'd like to know is, why did he do that? What type of sick bastard wants people to think that he cuts girls in half for entertainment?

Another thing that's been bothering me is how cartoon animals get their names. It seems that most animal characters get their type of animal as their last name, with the glaring exception of dogs.

You've got your Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Daffy and Donald Duck, Porky Pig etc. But with dog characters it's just plain Snoopy, Goofy, or Pluto. The only partial exception, and it's phonetic only, is Deputy Dawg.

Why is that dogs don't need last names? Is it that as man's best friend we assume all animal characters are dogs, unless otherwise specified? Or is it some kind of slur against their intellect?

(Insert your own Cher joke here).
