I’ve never been a fan of these “One like = one prayer” Facebook posts. It obviously doesn’t work that way. Clicking the share button is about as practical as tweeting your New Years resolution, in that it is undeniably useless in helping anyone and ultimately just clouds up people’s newsfeed with shit they don’t want to see. Make yourself useful and donate money to a legitimate cause if you’re that desperate to help.
Last week, a photo of a “badly burned” and “disfigured” dog went viral when a Facebook troll claimed that the pooch was hurt in an attempt to save his family from a house fire. Upon further inspection of the photo, anyone with an IQ larger than their shoe size would easily be able to tell that the dog had a slice of ham on its face. Unfortunately, most people who spend their days chilling on Facebook are there because their debilitating stupidity severely restricts their job opportunities.
In no time at all, people began sharing and liking the photo, complete with meaningful, yet unfortunately ignorant comments.
Luckily for us, some lunch meat lovers began to notice the deli, and took it upon themselves to myth bust these non-good doers.
And my personal favorite…
Eloquently stated indeed.
The real travesty here is that I can’t manage to break 200 likes on a carefully edited Instagram photo, while this dog is about to surpass 66,000 thumbs up just because someone tossed some lunch meat on his face. It’s shit like this that would make me give up on social media, if it weren’t for my crippling need for validation from strangers on the internet. Either way, you can bet your ass I’ll be casting my vote for #HamDog2016. .
