I LOL'd at the dog with the pitcher on his head. And the one in the litter box.

I don't get it? It's just a picture of a random dog and fail???

They don't make it very easy to work your way though the photos that have fallen off the front page due to age.

They need to get some scroll forward/back buttons on the individual day pages; having to click the 'Back' button to get to the Archive page is obnoxious and poor design.

But I did laugh at the dog with the large teapot or whatever it is on his head. Quality.

Whoever is doing this is woefully misinterpreting what a FAIL is in the dog universe. For instance, this picture, is clearly one of the biggest wins of that dog's day. And dog on a tower? That's like epic doggy success.

And beating a dog a chess? That just seems unfair. I mean, everyone knows that dogs prefer checkers.

How come on th' Internet, th' word "FAIL" is a noun...

You know, if you can't see the humour in this one, the FAIL is all yours, friend.

That's clearly a setup. No dog sits like that.

Why is there such a frenzy for people to dismiss things as unfunny without the slightest bit of wit or charm in their response?

Let me add this in my defense: At least it wasn't a double. And I don't think it's been previously deleted. I set the bar pretty low, I suppose, but I see this more as a ground-floor thing. It's no Cats In Sinks but it could get better as time wears on.

Yes. Well. Even if that is the case, I have to admit that my philistine ribs were utterly tickled long before it occurred to me to question its journalistic integrity. Oh, for those halcyon days of yore when blogs aggregating visual gags comprised of unfortunate dogs and the word "FAIL" could be trusted to publish only the unvarnished truth. In times like these, alas, I'll take my unfortunate-dog humour where I can find it, and with only the mildest of regrets.

yeah, but it was blorted a whole week ago, and everybody reads blort.

I like it, Devils Rancher. It's like LOLCATS distilled down to a thick syrup.

No. it isn't. FAIL.

I thought this was funny and delightful. Thanks. I missed it on blort.
posted by OmieWise at 11:21 AM on February 28, 2008


I thought this was pretty funny, but I'm a total dog person. However, some of the pictures o f dogs trapped on towers or caught in trees were fairly distressing.

They've demonstrated that there aren't enough doggy-failure images for a whole website. Maybe 1/3 of these demonstrate FAIL. The rest are just kind of funny and/or sad.

They've demonstrated that there aren't enough doggy-failure images for a whole website.

There's some interesting questions lurking here, about the number of cats vs. dogs owned as pets, and about the propensity of cats vs. dogs to do things that lend themselves to photographic recontextualization, and also about the tendency of cat vs. dog owners to take endless fucking photographs of their goddam cats, like anyone cares, seriously.

I guess I have some unexplored feelings re: specifically the cat side of this equation.

The FAIL is full of WIN. At least, my wife really enjoyed the site when she got it via StumbleUpon a few days ago.

cranky ole internet fart. FAILCOMMENT.

devil's rancher: you.just.made.my.day. i hope the knowledge that i can meet the rest of the day with something akin to humor and a good mood, is enough to counteract all the hating. i don't read blort, and never would've known about this. T'ANKS, pal.

To me, the funniest bit of the site is the submission guidelines:

We receive a lot of submissions so following these guidelines will improve your chance at getting a photo (and possible link) on the site:

* The photo should be funny
* The dog should actually be failing

This is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their dogs to fail, or why.

Come'on, some of these are pretty funny. (I wanted to hyperlink "pretty" and "funny" but couldn't find any more amusing photos).

At least once a week my wife has shown me a LOLCAT after laughing out loud at it. I carefully examine the invariably unfunny picture, then look at my wife like Squidward looks at Spongebob and walk away. I laughed hard at these. Do you know why?

I don't understand what's fail about this one.

And I can personally assure whoever made this website that this is, most definitely, not fail.
