ETOWAH, GA—After studying thousands of pictures of adorable pets posted on social media, zoologists have concluded that even the animal kingdom is deeply troubled by the current state of national affairs.
“You can see it in their expressions, especially with dogs” explained Lars Lundehund, chief zoologist for the Atlanta Zoological Association. “Anxious, perplexed, at times even exasperated.”
“Of course, the cats all just look disgusted,” he added.
Noting a dramatic uptick in darling photos of cute pets with heads tilted, Lundehund and his colleagues pored over 105,000 pictures posted online by users of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter—although certain key data culled from SnapChat were lost within seconds.
Lundehund insists that the $2 million study, funded entirely through Federal grants awarded during the Obama Administration, was completely free of any political bias.
“Still, it’s hard to escape the conclusion,” said Lundehund. “Even your Lab-Shepherd mix thinks the President is a moron.”
