The Latest Internet Craze? Dogs in Pantyhose. Yes, Really.

Dogs in hosiery are proliferating on the Internet as part of a Chinese meme

There's a new meme in cyberspace, and it may make you LOL, or possibly feel like you need to take a shower. We're not sure how to feel, and we're not sure why this exists, but we're here to tell you it is, in fact, happening: dogs wearing pantyhose on the Internet.

This new phenomenon comes to us from China, according to a report from that country picked up by Babble. Users of the microblogging site Weibo began posting photos of their canines done up in hosiery, calling it “Gou Gou Chuan Siwa," apparently. We have no idea why. But we bring you 10 of the completely bananas images here:
