[Not Fit for Young Children] Today's Most Viral Image: Dog-on-Chicken Love

At Tea Leaf Nation, we try to keep things (relatively) highbrow, or at least strive not to descend into outright vulgarity.

But who are we to overturn the will of the netizen masses?

With over 23,000 re-posts, this short movie of a randy young canine is Sina Weibo’s most viral image of May 23, according to Hong Kong University’s Weiboscope. (It’s actually number 2, but a text file sits at number 1). Weiboscope tracks the most re-posted images among prominent users.

    The GIF is a great find … the video’s from four years ago though: http://v.ku6.com/show/MU6UC5PkRkuoNtv0.html

      Hey Tao, yeah I thought it was probably an old video; it just happened to go viral in Chinese social media on what must have been a slow news day!

    If that were my dog, I’d disown it. 缺德鬼。

    Occasionally, the system has hiccups and we aren’t able to compile a large enough number of posts to get something meaningfully “viral”. This was the case last Thursday when our database experienced a higher than usual load, causing a said hiccup. Apologies.

    (I meant to have a sort of indicator on the WeiboScope page itself, but you could check its predecessor, which is a WeiboScope minus the visual part: http://research.jmsc.hku.hk/social/sinaweibo/ Cheers!)
