This is a stale and uninspired joke about man and his best friend, the dog, of course, or in some version it's a woman and her dog, in search of Heaven and a water bowl.
It is often followed by a gushing glurge, full of excuses for re-sharing those stupid joke memes.
The Breast Cancer Community has a version that replaces the word 'man' with 'woman' of course…
Besides my own mangling of this, here is further proof that this meme irritates other people as well.
🙃😏😼Memes: My Best Friend !
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Ugh, not again! *Groan*
🙃😏😼Memes: A man and his dog were walking along a road.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: *Sigh* Ah yes, the tired out cliche about a man and his "best friend" the dog, OF COURSE! Blech.
🙃😏😼Memes: The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Wha? *twitch* Urgh…Painful…
🙃😏😼Memes: He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Ewww! Creep-fest! Of course, 'man' and 'him/his/he' gets replaced with 'woman/her/hers/she' when the chain specifically aims at a female audience. But that is how this thing starts...
The rest of the story goes as follows, and I'll summarize to get you through as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Dead man and dead dog go down the road to a set of pearly gates - bingo, Heaven! Oops, no pets allowed. Man and dog go the other direction and get to a quaint little farm set up where he gets a drink of water and the dog is allowed a drink from a bowl and is not turned away. But oops, that place is called Heaven too. And when the man gets confused over this, the guy in charge of this Farmville - I mean, Heaven, says they're just glad that other fake Heaven which is really Hell, screens out all the people who leave their "best friends" (AKA dogs) behind.
Since when does Hell screen out people for bad behavior? This doesn't even fly in a joke. It simply doesn't make sense. And not everybody's best friend is a dog.
Then the odious saccharin "I care sooo much for you that I send you viral jokes!" comes.
That's been mangled too.
😼Meme3: You are all welcome @ my water bowl anytime.....
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No thanks!
So, are you going to send chain letters to your dog too? You might as well, it would appreciate them more than I do!
Over and out!
