“‘Thirty-three Animals Who Are Disappointed in You’ is a work of literature,” Mr. Smith said defiantly, referring to an April BuzzFeed post that has so far received 2.5 million views. “I’m totally not joking.” The author of the piece “spent like 15 hours finding images of animals that would express the particular palette of human emotion he was going for and wrote really witty captions for them,” he added. “And that in some ways is harder and more competitive than, say, political reporting.”
This goes with my earlier post about old Republicans. If you don’t read BuzzFeed, do you really know what’s on the cultural horizon? I ask both rhetorically and sarcastically.
