Triumph the Insult Comic Dog

I happen to listen to a Robert Smigel interview on NPR. He is the creator of the puppet character Triumph the insult comic dog. A few months back I had watched Triumph interviewing a bunch of Star War nerds, camping out on a freezing December morning, waiting to watch the new Start Wars movie. That was perhaps the funniest television snippet I have ever seen. The best part in that interview was when he asks a nerd who was exhibiting a fancy star wars gadget, “which of these buttons will call your parents to pick you up”. This outrageously funny video is a must see for anyone who loves a good laugh.
In the NPR interview, the crude, nasty and lecherous Triumph was asked “do you feel sexist and condescending in your attitude towards female dogs”. His reply was hilarious. “Do you ask the same question to Beethoven? Is this the satire that Beethoven does? I can’t imagine government is paying for this.”.Triumph, masquerading as a TV journalist, routinely covers major events with the only intend to ridicule and satirize. While 'on assignment' at the Michael Jackson trial, Triumph interviewed in a foreigner, in a flashy yellow outfit, rooting for the pop star. The guy said “the only victim is Michael” to which Triumph replied “he’s not the only fashion victim, I can see that” ! Robert Smigel and Triumph the insult comic dog will linger in our minds for years to come.
