Pets In Uniform
Status: Real (fake photo service)
image Wouldn't it be great to have a picture of Fido dressed in a military uniform to keep on the mantel? Unfortunately actually dressing Fido in the uniform can be a hassle, but thankfully there's now an alternative,

Imagine: your dog, cat, or other pet in full military regalia. We make this fantasy a reality. Using the latest digital techniques, we combine a photo of your pet with the uniform and background of your choice.

I don't think this would work for my cat, since she imagines herself more as royalty than as military.

Those are really bad photoshops...

Who would pay for that!

Your cat only imagines she's royalty?

My cats are anarchists. If you gave them "full military regalia," they'd burn it and then spit on the ashes.

As long as Wegman and his dogs aren't involved.

How long until there's a letter of protest to the makers, by military leaders, saying this sort of thing is an insult to Our Brave Cannon-Fodder in Iraq?

These photos are fake! There's NO WAY a cat can be THAT highly decorated in the military. One or two medals, maybe, but that cat's got more medals than Audie Murphy! Definitely a fake.

That was so funny it has to be a joke.
