It’s been a sad day at work (isn’t it always?) and we’re tired (aren’t we always?) and hungry (definitely always), and perhaps a little frazzle-brained, but we’ve been seeing these animal vs food memes... And they’re really getting us. Or we’re getting them. Or something.
Either way, they’re super funny. And super delicious looking. And super cute.
So, the internet recently went crazy after a meme popped up comparing dogs to food and we at Hindustan Times can’t get enough of it!
Earlier this month, Twitter user Karen Zach (@teenybiscuit) posted a photo of some Doodle pups who look alarmingly like a delicious serving a fried chicken.
And it exploded from there. Next were puppy-bagels.
‘Chihuahua or muffin’ had us doing a double-take.
Who knew Shiba Inus looked exactly like toasted marshmallows?
And as expected, the trend spread to other animal types.
Seriously though, kittens do look a little bit like ice cream!
Zack, pictured below, the 25-year-old US woman behind the popular memes, told ABC News that everything started with the collection of cute animal pictures she’d amassed on her phone over time.
“When I zoom out to look at the collections altogether, I begin to notice patterns similar to other things, in this case mostly food,” said the Portland, Oregon, resident.
Zack posted the first photo on Twitter in November, asking: Duckling or plantain? “I laughed so hard at the first one I just kept it up simply for my own entertainment,” Zack said.
She posted a ‘shrew or kiwi’ photo a few weeks later, but the memes didn’t really take off until recently, when she began posting photos comparing canines to carbs.
Featuring curly-haired Labradoodles vs fried chicken, wide-eyed Chihuahuas vs muffins, and grain-colored puppies vs bagels, the revolutionary comparisons have been retweeted tens of thousands of times on Twitter and garnered hundreds of thousands of views on sites like Reddit and Imgur.
Tell us which one is your favourite. Or better yet, make your own and show us!
Now, can someone get us a blueberry muffin, please?
