here’s something up with animals and Tinder.  

As I scan for prospects on a slow weekend, I am repeatedly offered photos of men posing with a variety of animals. What are these men posing with parakeets and tigers trying to say? Don’t look at me, look at this tiger in a Thailand pool whose butt I’m caressing? Or here is a kangaroo I’m sitting with in potty pose because hey… I can? Or I think I’ll let my cat’s testicles photobomb me here, because it will make you want me so bad?
