After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on earth.

Last week, former French president Jacques Chirac was attacked by his clinically depressed Maltese poodle. Um … wow. We don’t know what’s worst here: the fact that this poodle is depressed and on meds, the fact that Chirac suffered at the hands (paws?) of said poodle or the fact that this is even a story. Are we really horrible people if we’re laughing?

Chirac is doing OK now, but the Daily Mail goes as far to say he was “savaged” by his cute and fluffy dog. We think the real victim here is the dog, who obviously has the unrealizable dream of becoming something more than just a Maltese poodle. Le sigh.
