Note seen on the Whole Foods Market bulletin board on Saturday: "Acupuncturist wanted for dog."

I am not making this up; sometimes, the stereotypes are confirmed.

I presume that this ad is seeking someone to provide acupuncture to a dog, instead of offering a trade of a dog in exchange for an acupuncturist. But I suppose there is some ambiguity.

The other line of thinking this leads me to is the question of how one develops skills of canine acupuncture. Presumably the proper spots are different from the corresponding places on humans, and it's hard to get a whole lot of feedback from the patient.

And if acupuncture works on dogs, I'm led to imagine the implications of using acupuncture on other species. Crocodiles. Earthworms. Starfish. The mind reels at the possibilities.
