You may have been tricked by a recent Facebook post that showed a dog with what some believed to be a horrible burn on his face. The photo was captioned, “This poor dog was badly burned and disfigured trying to save his family from a house fire.” Many offered prayers and condolences for the poor pup. But if you bother to take a look at the picture, you’ll notice that the dog’s face isn’t burned at all. It’s just covered with a slice of ham.
The trick worked, as supportive comments poured in. The photo has been shared over 100,000 times and has been liked by over 65,000 people. Of course, not everyone was fooled, and plenty of people joined in on the laugh. It’s great that people are so quick to offer support when they hear of a dog in trouble, but the hardest thing this pup had to go through was probably waiting to devour the ham on his face.
“Ham Dog,” as some are now calling him, has inspired plenty of memes and artwork from people who want to join in the fun. Take a look at some of the hilarious photos people have been posting if you want a laugh today.
