We have all bought into the pet shaming trend, mainly because it’s cute and makes us laugh, but also because we all can relate. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, pet shaming is hanging a sign around your pet’s neck that states what he has done bad, snapping a digital pic and posting it for the world to see. My favorite is of the little pug (which are comical just to look at anyway) whose sign reads, “I ate a box of crayons and pooped rainbows.” No wonder it went viral—it cracks me up every time. Plus, he just looks so sweet, innocent and constipated.
Like many, I have wasted time being entertained by pet shaming photos. I guess if it makes you laugh, it’s not a waste of time. However, I think all the laughing would stop if we started doing the same thing to humans. But, maybe not. Maybe we could look at other’s shortcomings, see ourselves doing the same thing and actually get relief that we are not alone in our craziness.
