The latest meme to overtake the internet in China? "Gou gou chuan siwa" (狗狗穿丝袜), or in English, "Dogs wearing pantyhose". (NSFW? I really don't know.)

Huff Post piece on the trend.

Do we have a citation from an original source this is an actual meme? Or is it a recursive Gawker/HuffoPo meme loop?

If it's fake, that's some bitchin' photoshopping going on in those pics.

I have no idea how these people got their dogs into pantyhose, or why.

Damn these cheap Chinese pantyhose! I went for a run and got a run...

I'm generally disdainful of anthropomorphic interpretations of animal personalities or actions, but every one of those poor beasts has a look that says "you stupid fucker, I don't need this, get a life".

I agree, talk about your ruff lives.....

First they test make-up on the poor animals. Now they're testing out pantyhose.

Well, they say that pugs are dogs easy to dress in clothes but this would be pushing the envelope in more ways than one...

Try doing that to a cat.

Or a llama.

This reminds me of when our dog had mange (or some other skin infection, poor thing) and we had to take her outside in winter dressed in knee socks on her front paws, a men's undershirt with her tail through the neck, and an Elizabethan collar.

To this day I regret that I did not take pictures.

Imperialist running (pantyhosed) dog!

Or ferret, parrot, guppy or boa. Or honey badger.

Well, heck, we all know how the honey badger would feel about this.

At least put it over their head so they can rob someplace!

If we are going to tag slyt, can we also tag kotaku and gawker? Sick of lazily accidentally giving those assholes money.

Offended, but slightly sexy?

I like how every dog has the same look on its face and it says this: I really don't know what's going on right now. And my hindquarters feel kind of snug. But my master seems to be OK with this so I guess I'll just roll with it.

I hope those dogs pee in their owners shoes.

Whoa. I did not expect dogs wearing pantyhose to look quite like that.

(I also busted out laughing)

Only mad dogs and Englishmen wear pantyhose, my son.

"Overtake the internet" may be a bit of an exaggeration. I keep seeing the same ones over and over again everywhere.

This is the least-weird thing I've ever seen. (In terms of "wacky Asian memes".) I could easily imagine this coming from reddit.
