Freak me Out Friday

A very curious and disturbing sequence of events occurred recently at the Mango estate. It involved foodables (I think) and Mango in a form not at all like my large and handsome self. I was able to video the entire event and you can watch it.

For those of you without the high speed internets, or others who just want to ponder this happening more carefully, I, Mango, have extracted still digitals from the movie to which I will add helpful commentary.

Monday night, when momma would normally be running the vacuum or tidying up or cleaning my ears or any number of other pointless tasks she instead produced this object and declared, "Mango! THIS is a Mango!"

Being an oral kind of guy, I decided to explore it with my large and able to fit a football inside mouth. What ho? Could I have misunderstood? Perhaps she said, "Mango! THIS is a red tennis ball." It could happen.

No, not a tennis ball, because a brief time on the chopping block revealed a yellow and juicy interior that momma (gasp) proceeded to consume with disturbing nommy sounds. "Tart," she declared.

Apparently the "Mango" was some sort of foodable? Can that be right? Because I am Mango and I am NOT a foodable. Or am I?

If it was a Mango and I am Mango, then was it part of me?

And then! Oh no! She offered some for the squirt to slide into his rock eating gullet.

Then (this is where I kind of started to freak out) a slimy yellow piece of what I could only conclude was part of my innards stolen during my slumbers was offered to me, myself, Mango. "Eat," she says. "It is Mango. It is good."

Huh? Does that look right to you?

Meanwhile, the bottomless black pit o' consumption was nomming away as fast as Momma could introduce pieces past his leathery labralips.

He even fled the kitchen with a portion of my Mango-ness to consume in the privacy of the dog cave.

"This is so wrong," I thought. But I could not help being oddly drawn to the flavor and in spite of my better judgement, I, too, began consuming the false Mango with great gusto.

I am now thinking that this actually is real Mango! What else could account for the PeeWee making cracker face? His wee little self is getting flooded with powerful Mango juices.

The very essence of Mango.

Oh my! I can't stop! This is fantastic.

Am I a Mango cannibal?

Break out the Chianti and fava beans.

Because at the end of the day, that was total yummers!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. You know, sometimes the Mango reads blogs many days after they are posted. And I know my friends will often read my posts after they have been up for a few days. That's OK. I always love comments. But I wanted to make sure that all my pals know about the notification option in blogger so that you don't miss a comment. Yuh, in the comments page there is a thingie where you put in your peemail so all your comments are sent to YOU no matter when they get left. Just a little PSA from my large and blogging for almost three years self.


Malissa said...

I have to say how impressed I am with you Mango! You are so gentle with your mom as she hands out yummers. Such a delicate flower you are! Always nice to see the Mango having a good time.

Bronson and Pepper said...

Hmm, this is a tough one to figure out for us...Mango eating Mango...hmm...Guess as long as it tasted good that's what matters in the end! And thanks for the tip...our DOH#2 will check into that! Hope you have a very Happy Howlidays!

WEll, Mango.. the drool says it all!!!


AFSS said...

Mommy had some Mango ice-cream once. The boy beans didn't like the flavor so she shared it with Scylla & Charybdis who pronounced it yummy.

PSA: Sometimes the emails get sent to the spam folder. No rhyme or reason why as others make it to the inbox. Mommy has email notification set up on our blog.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

This is a problem for me... I now have a song, "I saw Mama eating Mango..." sung to the tune of "I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus," running through my head. It's just not right!

Niamh said...

Unbelievable Mango! We are still reeling in shock from your post. Not that mangoness wouldn't be delicious but that your momma offered you bits of yourself to begin with. Now you have got us thinking that we have to try some mango too. Hope you won;t mind.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

We're impressed - maybe our Mom will get us a bite of the Mango!! Oh yeah!

Anny said...

I loveeeeeeeee Mangoes.. was your Mango sweet or tart? urmms.. that don't sound quite right.. *BOL*

Priscilla said...

I wonder how your mangoes in the US taste like! Are the sweet too?

Mangoes here when they are ripe, are yellow in colour and are soo very sweet and juicy, they are one of our favourite fruits!!

We hope you and PeeWee enjoyed your mangoes!

Mack said...

You tried to put the whole thing in your mouth! And it fit!

We love the crazy eyes Pee makes when he taste the forbidden fruit!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Oohhhh....dat dere Mango looks delish! I haves to have some of dat stuff. (Wonders if my brudder Max, (DaOdderWeenie) can supply dat yummy Mango.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh dear Mango, it seems you are suffering a major identity crises. A visit to the shrink is surely in order. (No I don't mean that you need to be smaller!) I am sure Mango Momma will be happy to shell out for a few years of top quality psychoanalysis, which should sort you out.
Toodle pip!


That is most disturbing. I know now why the mangoons are on the endangered list.

That looks nommy!!!

Ok... confessions time... I have never said a word about this butt NOW that YOU have sampled the FAMOUS FRUIY YOU... you will understand.
My mom and dad and I just LOVE mangos. We have them whenever Kroger has nice RIPE ones.
Now you should teach your mom how to make... Mango Porcupines. ehehehehe

Wild Dingo said...

what can we say? we all wanna be Mango. even if we have to injest a piece of you to be you, we will do it.

nice drool... very appropriate for the activity.

Raymond and Busby said...

Mango, we find this development rather disturbing. However, that other Mango does look juicy and delicious. Happy Friday!

Sam said...

Sounds like you were horrified at first, and then enjoyed a very nice surprise.

I've never eaten a Mango before. You're braver than I am, because I would be thinking about you and feeling like the whole thing was terribly wrong!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog oh hay wow i think this mayks yoo a cannibal or sumthing!!! i am not shoor wot it mayks dexter tho!!! ok bye

Heather and Pumpkin said...

You are what you eat!


Sue said...

Our Dad loves mangos and eats them a lot. He offered us some and it tasted good. Maybe they named the fruit after you because it's so very good.

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

Ohhh Mango the horror how could your Mommy been so cruel as to feed you a mango. But just maybe, perhaps, well it could be that YOU were named....wait no never mind, that fruit was an imposter certainly not a mango mastiff

Sierra Rose said...

Hmmmmm Hmmmmmm! Was it yummers!? Looked like a tasty treat :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Benny and Lily said...

Wow, Mango...that takes guts to eat...yourself?? What did you taste like? Like manly leather? Like cigar smoke? what your Momma said.

rottrover said...

At first it looked like you thought it was a boxer head!

Barbara said...

What a conundrum! Of course it was sweet because it was you, but then eating parts of you is kinda weird. I guess it's best not to think about it too hard.

Maggie Mae said...

Hehehehe to what rottrover said! ;)

Woofs and Licks,

Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Great video! BOL BWAR HAR Obviously the Labradude found it yummy right away, but you were being more cautious. I gotta say my favorite part was the swinging strings of Mango/Mango slobber! Very funny. Wow, who woulda thought healthy could be fun too!
Grr and Woof,

dewdana said...

I agree Mango, mango is an acquired taste! WHen I was a new blogger, I was blogging away with no clue that people were even leaving comments until I saw them months later!I do get them emailed to me> I don't get an email when they are flagged for moderation as possible spam though- I am sure there is a way to do that but I have not looked yet!

brooke said...

HAHAHAH you had me LOLing at the Chianti and Fava Beans! ahahahah
Mango you're a cannibal. Can we start calling you Mangobal Lecter?

Minna Krebs said...

Oh my dogness, Mango-Eating-Mango Man!

I am finding this post both disturbing and oddly intriguing at da same time. Kinda like watching a train wreck in progress. I don't want to see it, butt I must!!


Tobi said...

I am not sure that Dexter could be more adorable. He and Clementine would get along great. At first, I didn't think that The Mango was going to like the mango. Glad he gave it a 2nd and 3rd try!

Mango, you have the best headers ever. You are so good at keeping them fresh. How do you do it?

I love Mango as well, by the way, so tasty. I don't think it makes you a cannibal. Not unless you ate another dog named Mango. Now that would just be wrong.

Your video was hilarious!

Hmmm...Mango eating Mango...Hmmm...We shall sit and ponder this odd act!

This hurts my brain. If it's part of you, you probably should eat it up, I guess. Hmm, very confusing, indeed...

Does that make you a cannibal?

Aw Mango - that tongue is totally impressive!

Well, now that you have eatedn mngo yourself big guy, we must confess, we love mango!!!!
Yes, YOU and the delicious fruit!
WHew, we feel better now tht we have told you!

Peppy Sheppys said...

Oh Mango. We most definitely need to purchase one of these delicious hunks of Mango! We were most alarmed that Mango Momma referred to you as a tart, though.

At any rate, we believe we will be sending you a doctor's bill as our ma ape said she bust a gut while watching your most amusing video, especially the part where you try to eat the Mango whole.

Mango, we have never had Mango, well, we have never eaten Mango, oh dear, somehow this doesn't seem to sound right at all. But we have had wallymelon and canteloupe and we aren't terribly fond of either. That must be because we haven't had the luxury of tasting Mango. You sure do make Mango look good- well, of course you ARE good. Oh, heck, Mom, just go get us some Mango.

Peanut said...

oh man mom was laughing so hard watching your video. I know how confusing it can be to find out that a foodable shares you name. I've been fed both Peanut's and Peanut Butter and since my name is Peanut and they call me Peanut Butter when I'm in trouble it was actually most troubling to think I was eating something that was me.

I love the philosophy ideas behind this post.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Hey, Mango! Welcome to the Fruit Eating Dogs club[a different club FED]. We like lots of different fruits; our favorite is bananas. We are impressed that you stuck with it and gave the mango a fair trial. It's wise to be cautious with new foods. We only get a couple of bites, too, lest we get the die-ah-ree-ah.

It is Abby's opinion that as long as products pertain to mangos [lower case "m"] which, strange to say, actually existed before you did, you probably have no claim to royalties. But when the product refers to Mango or Mangos, then clearly they are trading on your RH good name and reputation and you should get a cut of the profits.

Our paper Christmas cards order still hasn't come. We did get your most excellent card today! Thank you. We love cards where the dog [or one of the dogs] is about as big as the full-sized tree.

Carrie and Waffle said...

totally feel you, when BFF pulls out the waffles and syrup, it does give me a moments pause, but just a moment to get closer to chow down. Yummy in your tummy why ask questions.

LucilleMia said...

Oh Mango,
this one is really nice...
Mango the cannibal of Mangos!!!
Could be a film!!!
Love your face of astonishment eh eh eh

PeaWee did look like he was feelin more powerful toward the end there. Careful he doesn't start gettin humongous and start flingin slobbers on the ceilin! There can be only one Mango!

Waggin at ya,

Mr Koda MD said...

I doid enjoy your commentary. But I must add, I fear I have tasted a delicious morsel of Pea this morning - Ma was nomming on delicimo peapods... Pods of Peas?

I am confused.

I must have a slice of this false mango and see what super power I can steal from it.

tula said...

SOOO WRONG.. PEE WEE'S EVIL CRACKAH FACE SAYS IT ALL.. although fresh mango is delicious ala mode:)

just sayin.


Mimi and CC Cabana said...

How fun that Mango got to eat his namesake self! (Loved your Hannibal Lecter reference!) I love mangoes, but they are darned hard to cut, doncha think?

Ludo van Doggy said...

How very odd Mango. i does not think I would like to do eatings of fresh Mango innards cos I not like slimey things, but give me dried any day!
I liked all your festive decorations from the other post, especially the dogtivity.
~lickies, Ludo

Daisy Dog said...

Hmmm. This is quite disturbing. Did you notice any part of your relentlessly huge self missing?

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

You ate pieces of yourself (as did Dexter and the DOH) and yet you remain as whole and Relentlessly Huge as ever. Our brains have just turned inside out while pondering this paradox (not that Abby has much to turn inside out...). I think I need a nap...

*kissey face*

Zona said...

Dexter looks so eager to consume the extruded Mangoness! I think he wants to be just like his big brother!! Who wouldn't?!?

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Mango...Scruffy Peewee looks completely demented and you're eating you tongue??? Perhaps that is how the Mango is consuming Mango???

As for your advice re my personal piddling puddling problems, I AM NOT GOING ON BIRTH CONTROL PILLS. I refooooose. So there. And I LIKE peein' in my bed. So there. I don't know why Mumsie has her panties in such a ruffle. So we leak sometimes...what's the big deal??

Drippy barks,


Pee ess...and Mumsie was watchin' me snooze the other night and this puddle was just growing under the immobile movement at all 'cept for my snoring...nope, not the seizure monster, thank Dog...


Mango...thank you for your advice and concern...Scruffy is a bit senstive, but we just toss his tennis ball and he forgets about his little problem...I plan on checkin' back in with Dr. Mary this week and maybe see our holistic vettie we have here....

Kisses, Mumsie

Marjie said...

I'm never so sure about the slippery sorts of foodables, either. But I think maybe they named that particular item for you, because you are so pawsome? It is rather large for a fruity or vegetable-like food, after all, much like yourself.


CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Ewwww....Mango eating Mango!!!!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

i noticed your momma asked you in the video if that mango tasted funny. Don't worry, that is just Groucho's clown sauce. she probably dosed it when you weren't looking.

OMD! I wanted to look away but I couldn't! The idea of Mango eating Mango was just wrong yet oddly mesmerizing. I feel so ashamed.

Mango, we didn't want to tell you, cause we were afraid we would disturb you, but we have been eating those mango things for awhile now. Sometimes, we even have mango yogurt.

ocmist said...

Like we mentioned before, Grammy has been eating Mango based stuff quite a bit... does this mean we can quit getting after her about doing that!? We hope so, cause we really like sharing fruit and veggies with her and would like to try some cause it smells pretty good!

She explained that sometimes there are two things with the same NAME... like me (Gimli) and a sour old dwarf on some movies GrandPaw Robert likes to watch, so she wasn't really eating pieces of one of our favorite friends!
