People Are Freaking Out About Dogs Wearing Pants


In the days between Christmas and the New Year, much of the media world is in a silly state of pretend. A lot of people are nominally on the clock but have, in truth, sort of checked out. Anyway, because of that you get very silly posts like the one you are reading now, which is a write-up of a Business Insider write-up of a Reddit thread.

The internet—or those unlucky ducks on it this rainy December morning—is arguing about how dogs should wear pants.

 

So, look, the answer is obviously the one on the right.

Have a happy New Year.

Update 10:40am ET, Tuesday, December 29, 2015: Jared Keller at Maxim ran down the original creator of the image and has a nice post up examining how it came to tear the internet apart.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
