Dog eat dog design @ Artwearness
It is a dog eat dog world. A funny expression, I cannot recall an actual dog eat dog situation, not in real life, not in the papers & not on the web. Of course dogs do have a certain reputation, to live up to. The larger dog intimidates by size, the small dogs barks & bite. Not seldom the smallest dog has the biggest dog eat dog mind set. It has no choice it is small. So attack is in this case the best defence. It seems to say “Beware I look small and innocent but underneath I am a giant maniac. I am totally non predictable, by the time you turned around I already bit your tail off”. The big dog, the one that actually lives up to the term Dog eat dog…. is totally unaware of his size, and dog eat dog capabilities. He’s a good fella & lovable. Still dog eat dog is a marvellous saying that makes sense instantly if no actual dogs are involved.
The most famous dog of all is notorious Snoop Dog. For his alther ego he choose the most lovely charley brown cartoon dog ever. He’s the big dog, looks dangerous (probably was in his early days) but ends up being a nice & relaxed fella. The dog, likes Gansha. So maybe he barks a bit, but he won’t bite.
Besides Snoop Dog, there’s also a movie called Dog eat Dog. Really an amusing but typical film. Not really a plotline. But great enlarged characters. Dafoe and Gage doing what they do best playing the tormented bad guy. Who are accidentally getting from worse to catastrophical situations.
