Mon chien? Pourquoi?

Checking my webstats just now, I learned that a photo of my dog is reposted for some reason on this French discussion forum (middle of page three). My French isn’t good enough to figure out why, but it has something to with Paris losing the Olympics, Brad Pitt, and cafe-philo. Any French speakers (Sarah?) care to explain what the heck’s going on here?

[Update 7/7/05: OMG Sarah solves the mystery LOL ;)

"Yeah, that page is mostly slang French text message language, but I got exposed to that via my fifth graders.

Basically ...it's a music forum, they started off talking about some music lyrics, saying that the rapper Milou has fine, subtle lyrics (jeux des mots = word play). Then someone mentioned a show that was suppose to have a surprise guest that people thought would be Pitt but then wasn't. Then someone posted some lyrics "Yeah, see the flames and the sourness, it's rough, that torrid night, Milou. The couch, is that it? Rude/rough, those stars of "ciao, ciao, kisses". Then the conversation switched over to the Olympics. So basically, um, your dog's photo got posted cause he's on a couch.

It really doesn't have much to do with Brad Pitt or the Olympics or cafe philo."]

    I thought I spoke French, but that page is completely nonsensical to me.
