Dog Finally Catches Tail, Loses Interest Immediately
NEW YORK - Oscar, a neighborhood puppy constantly chasing his tail, has confirmed he finally caught the elusive appendage, only to find he immediately lost interest in it upon catching.
“I spent days, weeks, months, maybe even years, I don’t know, I have no concept of time, anyway, I spent all this time chasing the thing,” Oscar began, “that when I finally caught it, I didn’t even remember why I was chasing it in the first place. Once I had it I didn’t even care anymore. My owner put out new food anyway, so, whatever.”
Oscar’s owner commented on the strange phenomenon.
“All day every day he chases it,” Owen Roberts, Oscar’s owner stated. “Then he got it. Finally. And like, within seconds, you could see, he just dropped it, and walked over to the kitchen to eat, like it’s nothing. As if he hadn’t been chasing it for the last like, I don’t know, five years?!”
As the day wore on, Oscar must have forgotten about the earlier realization of futility in chasing one’s tail, because he was back in the center of the living room, again chasing his tail.
