When 19-year-old Jacqueline Arguello's dog gave birth to a litter of black puppies, she not only had an armful of gorgeous, adorable little doggos on her hands, she also had a juicy, salacious episode of Maury. And a viral tweet. And what more can you ask for really?
Let's take a closer look.
Here are the two parents, both white dogs.
Here are the puppies, none of which are white dogs.
Here is Maury Povich, doing his best 'people are about to slap faces' face.
An arguably perfect tweet.
Put aside, for now, the fact that two dogs with white fur can—because of genes and alleles and all sorts of science—apparently give birth to puppies with black fur. THAT IS NOT IMPORTANT NOW.
Right now, let's focus on what's important, like making jokes about a "pupternity" test and tweeting memes of people looking like "ohhhhhhhh it's about to go DOWN."
Ok, now go ahead and point out that it's entirely possible this momma dog did not cheat on the pappa dog, and that this canine family will never appear on Maury because they're dogs and because they're dogs in perfect marital harmony. Plenty of people ruined the joke by tweeting that same sentiment at Arguello, who pointed out, repeatedly, that it was just a joke.
Author's note: I'm aware that there is no "Maury chant" in the way that there's a "Jerry chant," but there really should be, right?
