So, as you probably know, the U.S. government is busy doing this:
In times like these, I think we can all use a little cute to get us through the day. (After all, clever memes about the Mean Girls of Capitol Hill – while genius – can only do so much.) A world full of closed doors isn’t very much fun, after all.
It feels a bit like we’re all on a really unpleasant merry-go-round.
Not only that, the situation is pretty uncertain. Who knows what will happen next?
With that in mind, I decided that a muttdown would be way better than any sort of shutdown. Let’s muttdown the shutdown! Who’s with me?
What exactly is a muttdown? Um… good question. I’m not quite sure, but If I had my way, we’d just replace the shutdown with bunch of puppies instead. Like this:
Or maybe this:
In any event, if you’re affected by the shutdown (or even if it’s just bumming you out), might I recommend that you find a furry face to snuggle? Shut down your anxiety over the shutdown (at least for a few minutes) with a muttdown. It’ll do you good.
(That’s it! Henceforth and forevermore, using puppies to shut down your anxiety shall be known as a muttdown. With dog as my witness, I’ll never stop trying to make muttdown happen. No matter what Regina George says.)
