dogs and lost consonants

As I was thinking about the English language and writing a (long overdue) post for my other blog, I came across one of Graham Rawle's "lost consonants' humorous artworks.

For fifteen years he produced collages for The Weekend Guardian. He would use actual pictures and scissors, rather than digital manipulation, to produce a picture of a phrase where one consonant was missing. For instance, 'Statistics showed an increase in violet crime', or 'An accident had left him with a small car over one eye'.

A Google search of his name comes up with lots of examples of his work.

But my all-time favorite would have to be:
Every time the doorbell rang, the dog started baking.
(You'll have to magnify it on your screen to see it clearly.)
