If one is to believe Mr. Freud, even creatures as noble as the Basset hound has a subconscious filled with instincts and impulses. Some of which, regrettably, can be rather base. So after a welcome tip by Mr. Gustav Beowulf of Lulubelle, we can share with our readers this old commercial, which sheds rare insight into the inner life of the Basset hound.
The Freudian analyst in the commercial might be considered offensive by people with modern sensibilities, as ethnic humour has become increasingly frowned upon as political correctness have killed so much which is true and good. However, as Lord Bassington-Bassington considers all humans to be inferior (to Basset hounds) anyway, he is a great fan of ethnic stereotypes.
This next commercial illustrates that however superior Basset hounds may be to humans, there are certain positions they should not be put in, lest temptation become too great.
