With the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show recently being completed for this year, with a large and lovely Newfoundland named Josh taking the Best in Show, I found myself again asking that perennial question: Why are poodle haircuts so weird? Fortunately for me, Slate magazine had the answer. Makes sense, yes, but it doesn't make them look any less ridiculous, even for those at the top of the (dog) pile.
