10 Adorably Bizarre Variations on Dogs Playing Poker [IMAGES, VIDEO]
It's the eternal question: which came first, the dogs or the poker? We may never know, but we do know that C.M. Coolidge's famous paintings of canines engaging in a friendly game of cards are among the world's most enduring works of art. They are also some of the most parodied. Here's ten of our favorite variations on 'Dogs Playing Poker.'
Disney Robots Playing Poker
In this clever photo, Pixar favorite Wall-E plays with two robots from the Disney classic 'The Black Hole' and Rex, the robot tour guide from the Disneyland ride 'Star Tours.' Could this be the original ending to 'Wall-E'? If so, it's far more anti-climatic than the tearjerker we saw in the theaters…
Poker With Pals
We can't decide if this is cute or crazy. At least she'll have some company when the apocalypse hit and we're all forced to live in trailers in the desert.
Ducks Playing Poker
Fun fact: ducks are much better at playing poker than dogs, because you can never quite read the expression on their bills.
Does this have something to do with tainted Chinese dog food? Or is it some sort of thinly veiled political commentary? Either way, those are some tuckered-out pups. Awww!
Real Dogs Playing Poker
The dogs in this cute video are part of a dog saving network in Chicago. While they may lack the opposable thumbs necessary to properly double down, they are pretty adorable. (And were thankfully all adopted.)
How Much Is That Doggy In The Window (Playing Poker)?
The dogs in this window display all appear to be stuffed toys. At least we hope they're toys and not deceased stuffed dogs arranged in a macabre scene.
Wolverines Playing Poker
Okay, so technically Wolverine from the 'X-Men' isn't a dog. But he does enjoy beer, cards and getting the scruff on his neck scratched. To quote his catchphrase, “He's the best there is at what he does, and what he does is play poker.”
Gods Playing Poker
Get it? “Dog” spelled backwards? Also, Ganesh is clearly counting cards. And what do you want to bet Vishnu has an ace under the table?
The Last Dog Supper
Uh, what does that bulldog think he's doing? Like you can sneak a card past Jesus.
Snoopy Playing Poker
Good thing Charlie Brown's not there. He's a real bad luck charm. Also, no Red Baron? This picture is garbage. Garbage, we tell you!
