Ladies and gentlemen, meet the … oh, for heaven’s sake! February 1, 2020

When I saw this strange online photo under this curious headline in Reddit — “Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Platypit” — I was immediately skeptical.

Thus, a “Platypit.”

Right.

So I clicked on it.

I was happy to discover that it was a joke not fake news. Apparently, a Pitbull pup had shoved its nose in a duck-bill-like shoe, giving the canine the appearance — in a quick glance — of having a duck-bill instead of a snout.

In fact, it’s just a silly and hilarious juxtaposition.

Enjoy your Sunday, as I did when, looking closer, I found out what it actually was.
