I admit it. I'm a sucker for pets. Dogs, cats, mules, aardvarks, penguins, wait -- you probably shouldn't have a penguin as a pet, but, you get the idea. I love animals. I'm also very fond of clever memes. So, when you put the two together, it's likely to put a smile on my face, and I hope, yours too.

Creating a good meme isn't as simple as it may seem. Take a photo of something, paste in a clever comment, and voila! Meme! It's not that easy. First, you really need to have some kind of compelling photograph. Animal, deranged-looking person, celebrity mugshot, something that would cause someone to take a second look. Then, you have to match that photo with a clever comment. Often, my favorites include comments that make the picture you're looking at even funnier. Especially something out of context. Or, many meme creators have a knack for matching the look on someone's or something's face, that captures what we'd imagine they're thinking.
