I feel sorry for a poodle because he's a dog. You know, a dog is a fucking great creature. They would do anything for you. And the poodle gets a haircut. No one asks if the poodle wants his hair cut like that. Do they? They just f**king cut his hair like that. And he just walks around. And everyone is like, 'Why is that poodle so snarky?' 'F**k you'."
