If Art Basel Miami Beach's unofficial satellite events -- those on the mainland, where things are decidedly less stuffy -- had an official smell, it would be spray paint.
"Dogs in pantyhose" is more than just a terrible stain on your online search history. It also happens to be the latest online fad in China. The "gou gou chuan siwa" phenomenon, as Kotaku describes it in a post that helpfully includes a warning to readers who may find photos of dogs in pantyhose offensive, kicked off when "bored" people began posting pictures of their dogs in various states of undress to Weibo, a Chinese social networking site. Heels and expressions of shame and/or apathy are optional, but highly encouraged. This fad is, of course, dumb and it is silly. It also happens to be just the latest in a long stream of memes dedicating to embarrassing poor, defenseless pets.
