Everything's Going to be All White

Your appetite for Humiliation is Insatiable: Why Do White People Love to Abuse the Shit Out of Their Pugs?

09.25.08 by Sarah | 6 Comments | Digg This

We’re rolling up on Halloween pretty soon, and you know what that means: Crazy-ass white people dressing up their dogs. (Although Spaghetti Cat‘s owner, Faye Murrell, is providing an exception to the rule. She’s like a single non-white woman juggernaut of pet-related insanity.)

Why does it seem that pugs get disproportionately singled out for costume abuse? Is it the curly little tail? The smooshed face? The googly wall-eyes?

Or are we confusing causation with correlation–is it simply that the kind of white yuppie suburbanite that is drawn to the breed to begin with is more likely to put them in an elephant costume? (Please note the expression of stoic suffering. Seriously, click the link it will make your soul explode.)

Has PETA been made aware of this? It’s not any crazier than their latest campaign to get Ben & Jerry’s to replace the bovine milk in their ice cream with human breast milk.

For more pet-related humilation hilarity we suggest:

*Beedogs: Exactly what it sounds like

*Dog Wigs: There’s one wig called “yappy hour”

* Stuff on my Mutt: Indelible sadism
