Pets dressed as people are crawling, so to speak, all over the interwebs. Usually, you see one of these pictures and think, “aw, that’s cute” and then go about your day.
But occasionally, one of those photos hits so close to home that it’ll make you pause and think, “wait, I think I know that person…errrr, animal.”
Take a look at these 16 dressed-up critters and see if you don’t get an odd feeling of familiarity.
1. Christina, 20, your Starbucks barista.
Is super chipper every morning when you’re in to get your caffeine fix and always asks, “What can I get ya, hon?” And then proceeds to spell your name wrong. Every. Time.
2. Brody, 23, your office’s new intern.
He has no idea how to actually tie a tie…or how to make coffee…or how to do his job. He also starts every conversation with “yo.”
3. Christopher, 13, your teenage cousin.
Swears up and down that Justin Bieber is, like, super lame, and yet has been styling his hair this exact same way since he was 8. Makes you call him “Topher.”
4. Derek, 29, lived on your floor freshman year.
Total Star Wars nerd who tried to get everyone to call him Yoda. Asked you on a date once and “cooked” you his special dorm room ramen.
5. Allison, 25, that internet famous girl who went to your high school.
Copied everything Gwyneth Paltrow did, including only dating boys named Chris. She now has her own beauty line called Swoop.
6. Ben, 21, your best friend’s little brother.
Trying to make it as a DJ in Ohio. Insists everyone refer to him as “All About The Benjamins.” Promises to get you on the guestlist for Cincinnati’s hottest club.
7. Trevor, 33, your older brother’s best friend.
Got really into Harry Potter when it first came out and now writes fan fiction on a site with 106 followers. Says he met JK Rowling in person once.
8. Alan, 43, your sports-obsessed coworker.
His cubicle is covered in all of his favorite teams’ memorabilia. Ends every staff meeting with “let’s get after it.” Always asks you if you caught last night’s game.
9. Ryan, 38, your sister’s photographer husband.
Has been trying to get his “pet portrait photography” business up and running for the past 10 years. The vanity license plate on his Subaru Forester says “Nikon.”
10. Liz, 30, your brother’s new girlfriend.
Went to France once in college and will. Not. Stop. Talking. About “the culture. The people. The food.” Only drinks sparkling water and gets wine drunk every Thanksgiving.
11. Brian, 56, your dad.
Asks you how that “liberal arts degree I spent $80,000 on is working out.” Insists all craft beer is a bullshit fad being propped up by Europeans and liberal West Coast breweries.
12. Sam, 27, your roommate’s boyfriend.
Is really, really into everything steampunk for reasons you’re not entirely clear on and frequently asks if you’ve ever read anything by H.G. Wells because it will “totally change your life.”
13. Brenda, 49, your weird aunt.
Never married or had kids or moved out of your grandparents’ house. Breath always smells like gin and is constantly trying to tell you about the 27-year-old hottie she hooked up with.
14. Eddie, 45, the construction worker on your street.
Somehow manages to keep smoking while jackhammering the sidewalk in front of your building. Invariably yells something inappropriate about the way you’re dressed.
15. Cathy, 53, your mom’s best friend.
Divorced for 17 years and still refers to her ex-husband as “that worthless SOB.” Attempts to come on to you whenever you mom’s out of earshot.
