Bass Dogs, Because people who play bass with their fingers look like they're tickling hairy dogs.

I was going to say this guy needs to get a hobby, but that's what got us here in the first place.

You've got to wonder at the mindset of the person making these.

"No, see, I need to move the corgi up, like, five pixels because otherwise the dude looks like he's giving it a sneaky hand shandy.. but would that be diluting the message? Will people still get the joke? He doesn't even look like he's holding the dog properly now.. maybe if I move it down again.. hmm, still looks kinda like there's some inter-species fondling going on.. oh, screw it, that'll do."

What bothers me about some of these is when they didn't bother to find the perfectly shaped bass dog for the situation. Like somebody thought "I'm going to submit a bass dog but I can't be bothered to find the right cute dog" -- as if cute dog pictures on the Internet are hard to find or something.

What bothers me more is that I'm bothered by this at all.

oooh, we just did something verrrrry similar to this IRL, except it involved water and dog shampoo, and a bathtub, and no backup singers. And more whimper than bass. Otherwise, extremely similar!

Come back Bass Dog -- I stopped scrolling one photo too soon. All is forgiven.

MCMikeNamara, the Internet (and Photoshop) have ruined us all.

The thought that playing bass with your fingers looks like you're tickling a dog had never crossed my mind. And after seeing the pictures I still don't see a resemblance between the two.

The Photoshop wasn't good enough to ruin me.


That said, I laughed.

This makes me realize that playing the triangle in the orchestra looks exactly like holding a kitten by the scruff of the neck while gently squeezing its toes.

Somebody please make a trianglekittens tumblr for me.

I was kind of hoping for an announcement of some sort of aquatic dog-fish crossbreed. I am gravely disappointed, MetaFilter.

Bassdog! is the new Beedog!

It just so happens that my dog often likes being scratched on her chest a little below her collar and that spot just in front of her leg so I often do both at the same time. At 75Lbs she is a little bit to pick up so I never made the connection but I guess I kind of get it.

It is the utter, gleeful, who-cares shittiness of the photoshopping that made me laugh.

Looks like a lot of accidental doggie junk-grabs to me.

Ooh, that Belgian is gorgeous, as if pointing that weren't redundant.

This is getting forwarded and posted all over the place among my friends (many of whom play in bands together) but I've gotta say...it's just meh. I don't think the bass players actually look very much like they're tickling dogs.
