Stephen Roseman posted this picture on his Facebook timeline on December 23rd with the following caption:
This poor dog was badly burned and disfigured trying to save his family from a house fire
One like = one prayer
One share = ten prayers
Fair warning: before you go to Mr. Roseman’s page, you should know it is NOT family-friendly.
He has received (to date) 73,568 likes and 125,274 shares. More than 925 people commented, many of them responding with prayers for the dog. The rest of them realized it was simply a piece of lunch meat draped across the dog’s face.
My favorite comment came from Jim Hardy: Two pieces of bread and some Miracle Whip salad dressing and I will eat his face.
I like the way Sebastian Murdock characterized it in the Huffington Post: Thousands of users on Facebook — the world’s premier bastion for intelligent discourse and the only way to convert “likes” into prayers — have rallied around another important cause: a dog with ham on its face.
Well played, sir. Well played. (To all involved.)
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
