There’s a new show on Animal Planet called “My Extreme Animal Phobia” and it sounds scary and awesome at the same time. They showed an episode where this big dude with face tattoos is scared of puppies. He basically looks like Mr. Clean meets Mike Tyson. All macho and everything. BUT puppies are his kryptonite and it’s kinda maybe possibly hilarious.
Watch this clip I got from BuzzFeed.com.
SNAP! The way he hauled ass at the sight of that adorable pitbull puppy made me holler. I mean I cackled. He was not having any pieces of that puppy. How is tatted up Mr. Clean just turning into a puddle at that little doggie?
Meanwhile, the puppy’s looking at him like “He aight? Why’s he so sad?”
Don’t get me wrong. Pitbulls scare me when they’re adults. And have those huge teeth. And just look like they are ready to bite off your pinky toe. But this little one? Nawl. And the power he has over the big dude is just amazing. Those were REAL tears. I’m glad he overcame it a little though.
I feel bad for laughing. I feel TERRIBLE, in fact because I know a lot of phobias have deep psychological reasons behind them. But seeing this grown man with a TATTOO on his face, and muscles CRY because he was in the presence of a small dog had me laughing harder than I was supposed to.
Don’t mind me. I’m the same one who created an island of paralysis on my couch the night I saw one tiny roach in my apartment two week ago. At least he’s afraid of something that could technically bite him. I’m petrified of something I can kill with one very determined stomp (or 2. You know roaches are thugs. They never die at first hit).
But yeah, I’m terrible. This isn’t funny. Except it really is.
Am I a bad person? Did you laugh too?
Ok I’ma go repent. And shourrout to Asante for bringing this to my attention.
