Give Fetch Some Sugar, Baby – He’s Earned It
Well faster than you can say “Klaatu Barada Nikto,” we’ve unearthed the back story for that curious image LI posted of the Loudoun Hounds’ irresistible mascot.
What appears at first glance to be a woebegone costumed laborer suffering a seizure in a reclamation ditch, in reality captures the moment of triumph for the fabric of our existence itself.
Not long ago, it turns out, that spot was a portal to an ancient demonic realm from which proceeded all manner of evil – and just prior to the snapping of the photo, here was the cosmic collision in that very depression between Route 7 and the Loudoun County Parkway:
Much like “Ash” of Evil Dead fame, it was “Fetch” who stood in that godforsaken pocket of land and fought them all back to whence they came.
So while some may be tempted to guffaw at the Facebook entry for the photo – “Check out Fetch marking his territory on the future field for The Hounds!” – before you scratch your head and wonder what the hell kind of marketing message that is supposed to convey, sit back and breath a word of appropriate thanks to ol’ Fetch, for how he saved us from the vortex, and shall surely save us again.
