Baby laughs at dog popping bubbles…for social justice

It’s only Monday and the news is already too depressing. It’s self care time. This video’s a little old in internet time – it’s from last week – but it is super important:

My friend Malissa informs me this video really is feminist because “the bubbles represent oppression.” So there’s that.

    That dog looks so much like my previous dog, except my dog had longer legs. I don’t know why, but it’s always funny to watch babies laughing.

    I find laughing baby videos to be, generally, way more than my blood sugar can take, but damn if this baby isn’t right. Dogs popping soap bubbles are comedy GOLD.
