Wow. Somebody help me. Some of you may know some of my odder obsessions — my appreciation of computerized Japanese anime pop, my digital archiving of animated .GIFs, my endeavors at amateur numismatics — but of late I’ve realized that I had a large collection of photos of overweight animals. It all started after seeing the much-distributed photo of this dog on the Internet. It occurred to me that this spectacle wouldn’t have happened in nature. These animals wouldn’t be overeating like this. It’s a uniquely modern phenomenon, these overweight animals, yes … well, OK, I was going to try to justify why I’m posting a hall of freaks-style gallery of photos of overweight animals, but you know what? I have no reason. These are just weird pictures and it’ll probably get hits and entertain you, dear readers. Enjoy!
