So

I play the Kingsman mobile game, and I wanted to write a meta about what their dogs say about them, because I love all of them.

Dog owners:

1) Are more likely to be senior management

2) Live with family members

3) Not have a college degree

4) Be a professor, nurse, information technology specialist, military professional, or entertainer (which kind of negates #3)

5) Consider your pet part of the family

6) Be extroverted, agreeable, and conscientious

7) Have gotten the dog from a shelter or rescue group

8) Live in Arkansas, New Mexico, Kentucky, Missouri, and West Virginia more than other states

SO:

1) The Kingsmen/Statesmen are really ducking smart (no duh!)

2) They are more likely to be family oriented

3) Probably doesn’t apply to them, but since most come from money or nobility in Kingsman, they probably don’t need a degree, and the Statesmen probably don’t need a degree if they get recruited early enough. Eggsy doesn’t have a degree.

4) They are all military-esque professionals (again, no duh!)

5) They all seem to love their dogs at Kingsman, not just Harry and Eggsy, but Roxy and, Charlie was never seen or heard being cruel to his dog

6) I’ve looked at their MBTIs and most Kingsmen are introverted, except Eggsy and Charlie, but that may be British social training, and most of the Statesmen are extroverts

7) While they probably got their dogs from breeders to ensure proper health and standards, there is a chance the dogs came from breed-specific rescue

8) Applies to the Statesmen, but only because they are headquartered there

Now for the fun stuff:

Harry/Yorkshire Terrier- Flexible and able to focus; feisty, brave, and competitive; extremely talkative and has a good sense of humor

Merlin/Hamish/ Labrador Retriever- Puts family first, easy-going, and carefree; social butterfly, honest, and lovable

Roxy/Standard Poodle- Takes pride in appearance, very neat and orderly; very versatile, and can enjoy a night at home with a bottle of wine or out on the town partying

Ginger/Whiskey/Elizabeth/Cocker Spaniel- Charming, trustworthy, and affectionate; leads a busy life, but prefers to spend time with family; maintain a group of close, lifelong friends they prefer spending time with over strangers

Charlie/German Shepard- Wouod do anything for friends and makes an extremely loyal companion who is protective of loved ones

Eggsy/Pug- Cheerful, has a zest for living life to the fullest; enjoys frequent massages and days of pampering at the spa

Crown Apple Fudge Brownies 

Ingredients 

½ cup + 1 tbsp all purpose flour 

2/3 cup warm vegetable oil 

2/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa  

2/3 cup light brown sugar 

1 1/3 powdered sugar (sifted) 

¼ tsp kosher salt 

¼ tsp baking powder 

3 eggs, room temperature  

1 ¼ tsp vanilla extract 

~35 ml Crown Royal Apple whiskey (Crown Vanilla is also a great substitute) 

Directions 

Preheat your oven to 330 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Line an 11x7 baking dish with parchment paper so that it hangs over the sides and spray liberally with non-stick spray. 

In a small pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat until it is warm to the touch. It should not be too hot. 

In a small bowl, combine the cocoa and the oil and whisk until the cocoa has dissolved. 

Add in the whiskey. 

Set the ‘fudge’ mixture aside while you prepare the remainder of the ingredients. 

In a large bowl (or standing mixer), combine the eggs and sugars and mix thoroughly for about 4 minutes. The mixture should be as smooth as possible.

Add in the vanilla extract and prepare the dry ingredients.

In another small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. 

Now that the fudge mixture has had a moment to bloom, combine ½ of the mixture into the wet ingredients (eggs, etc.) and mix for about 3 minutes until smooth. 

Add in the dry ingredients and the remaining half of the fudge mixture. 

Mix until the dry ingredients are just combined, careful to not over-mix. 

Pour the batter into the pan and bake on the center rack for 22-26 minutes. 

Once the brownies are finished baking, remove them from the oven and allow for them to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. 

Using the hanging parchment, carefully lift the brownies from the pan and set aside to cool for another 5 minutes. 

Cut into your desired portions and serve! 

Enjoy!
