How to stop a dog from barking
1) Ascertain that it is indeed the yappy hound of hell next door (the one that belongs to the Honey Boo Boo family) keeping you awake.
2) Ascertain that it is indeed after 12:00 midnight.
3) Set off a bevy of firecrackers in a bucket on the back porch.
4) Laugh gleefully (and perhaps even manically) as you hear cussing from the Honey Boo Boo house as the back door slams open and shut, and yappy dog is apparently yanked inside.
5) Laugh even more because you know the wuss neighbors think it was gunshots, and feared for their precious little yappy dog. That they didn’t care was yapping for hours outside.
6) Finally get to sleep.
