Impossibly Beautiful

Now for dogs!

That terribly, terribly photoshopped shit actually appears on the Ralph Lauren website. Along with another terribly, terribly photoshopped image of the same forlorn dog, who evidently looks less forlorn than the original pooch cast to suffer through a photo shoot clad in a Ralph Lauren shirt.

"Get me the head of a Labrador! This filthy mutt has no papers and is too fat!"

It's not like sticking the head of a Lab onto what looks like the short, squat body of a bulldog is objectively a big deal (although it's so poorly done that RL ought to be embarrassed)—but there is something I find bitterly amusing about the fact that RL treats its canine and female models with the same contemptuous indifference: If one part isn't right, just replace it with another. They're all the same, anyway.
