Facebook Deletes Viral Dog Picture Because It Looks Like A Penis
| Last updated
Imagine posting a picture of your puppy onto Facebook, thinking you'll get a few likes and shares, maybe even a weird comment from Aunty Sharon. The next time you check your phone, you see the post has gone well and truly viral, with more than 60,000 people engaging with it.
You'd be pretty chuffed.
Then, for some baffling reason, Facebook goes and deletes the picture saying it's against it's Community Standards. Pfft - what are they talking about it's just an image of my puppy from above...oh wait.
Before you spurt Holy Water into your eyes, relax - it's actually legitimately a picture of a dog. But because we're all sickos with minds in the collective gutter, it looks well and truly like a big ole schlong.
I mean, surely, that must've crossed the mind of Dominic, 16, who posted it?
The man from the Philippines said: "It's really hard for me to see the penis perspective because when I look at it I always just see the puppy.
"I got a notification saying it had been blocked a few minutes after I posted it to the group.
"At that time I didn't realise it looked like a penis because when I first posted it to Facebook all I saw was a photograph of an innocent puppy.
"It actually made me really angry for a moment, but I feel better about it now because people find it hilarious.
"I find it really funny that it's causing all this attention because it looks like a penis, yet the photo is something I can keep sharing because it's also not."
Look dude, it looks exactly like a dick - there's no two ways around it. And taking the picture from above and framing it like that isn't helping your cause.
If you're wondering what type of pooch it is (because I certainly was), it's a Xoloitzcuintli, otherwise known as a Mexican hairless dog. Dogs within the breed range from being completely hairless to fur that's very fine.
All in all, his family own 12, yes, twelve dogs, and apparently this particular one is the only one from its litter that's truly hairless.
There have been plenty of times ordinary things like clouds, plants and foods have looked kind of similar to a man's Johnson, but this takes the cake for the most phallic non-phallic thing on the planet.
Hopefully it grows up looking less like a dick.
