If you were a responsible American who watched the State of the Union last night, then allow us to catch you up on the Westminster Dog Show: Banana Joe, a five-year-old affenpinscher who speaks German, Dutch, Spanish, and English (according to his owner), took home Best in Show. In cultural news, Banana Joe will make his Broadway debut in tonight’s production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, in the role of Macaco. Thanks to Broadway for giving us an excuse to post pictures of cute dogs.
