Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from DieselDriver
Review:
So you have heard about the dyslexic agnostic who wasn't sure there was a dog, haven't you?
Comments from author:
And the dyslexic devil-worshipper who sold his soul to Santa.

Review of chapter "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" from DieselDriver
Review:
Hohohohoho! This scene reminds me of one I saw some years ago on one of the animal shows. A jackrabbit trying to escape from a pack of coyotes. That Jackrabbit turned every which way except inside out. That pack of coyotes must have been just as flustered as the batch of Jaffa Skippy was evading. Got away too.
Comments from author:
And the jackrabbit didn't even have a stashed P-90.

Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from onefreeman
Review:
An entire chapter just to make a joke about a bad pun? Fantastic! :D

You do come up with the most entertaining crossovers, Mr Speakertocustomers.
Comments from author:
Thank you! Although it wasn't entirely for the pun; there was also Teal'c's remark about what he hadn't seen Master Bra'tac doing...

Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from CPTSkip
Review:
My eyes! My brain! My immortal soul! What a horrible, horrible pun. But your story made me laugh once again. I guess this would be a good time to say, "You are one sick pup!" Or not.

Edit: I used to love how Richard Dean Anderson would get a funny look on his face whenever the aliens spoke English for the first time. Lol!
Comments from author:
A Horrible pun? That might have given me an idea for the next part of 'A Very Special Stargate'. Bad Horse, Bad Horse... or perhaps not.

Thank you!

Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from Geyer
Review:
At least, he's not a false dog.

And it's nice that Jack is being so open-minded about giving other species a chance on SG-1, no matter their race, color, creed, or national origin, while keeping the team Jonas-free. I love this story. Thanks for continuing it.
Comments from author:
Thank you!

So far, however, all the new members of SG-1 have been mammals.

Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from SlickRCBD
Review:
Funny as the joke is, somehow I doubt it works when talking about translating from different languages, especially Egyptian. The language was so different nobody could translate it until they found the Rosetta Stone. Even then, in the Stargate time-line they had trouble with the hieroglyphs used by the Gou'ld. Daniel figured out the mistranslation in the first movie. The spelling of dog and god are probably very different in another language.
Comments from author:
In a universe in which a kangaroo, a dolphin, a German Shepherd dog and a gerbil can be members of SG-1, I think a pun reliant on English spellings is perhaps the least of the things that require a suspension of disbelief. Skippy's deadly accuracy with a P-90 probably qualifies as the most - or maybe his Ascension.

In my own mind, however, I was also poking fun at the universality of spoken (although not written) English in the Stargate SG-1 universe - despite the communications problems they had with the Egyptian-based language of Abydos in the movie.

My inspiration was actually something I came across while doing research for another story that led me to believe that the pun would work in Comanche. I didn't follow it up at the time, as I was actually researching the Cheyenne, but I have checked up since and found that it doesn't really work in Comanche after all.

Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from JoeDineen
Review:
That pun deserves a smack upside the head. how many beers did it take?
Comments from author:
I'm teetotal. I was doing research for 'Came the Thunder', saw a reference to the Comanche calling the horse the 'god-dog', and the rest is history.

Review of chapter "Dog Day Afternoon" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
I always start giggling about one paragraph in and don't stop until I get to the end...which is good.

How about SG-1 and their New Cobbers meeting 'Min' the Egyptian god of Sex and Lettuce! You never got to see him on TV...I wonder why?

Most enjoyable,
DaveT.
