So, a long time ago, I posted this picture on my Facebook page because I thought it was sad… I didn’t really know the context of it. I just thought it was sad.
Oh, my god, did I open up a can of worms with that one picture. Friends and family everywhere just came out of the woodwork to tell me just how sad that picture actually was and the tears… oh, the tears…
For those who don’t know (like I didn’t know) Fry is a character — the main one I think — in a show called Futurama, which I have never watched. If I’m understanding the reference above (and the video I’m about to post below), Fry goes into the pizza place where he works and never comes out (because he is froze somehow and wakes up hundreds of years in the future) his dog, not knowing the fate of his master, faithfully waits for Fry outside of the pizza place until his death.
Man’s best friend.
From what I understand, it’s quite a sad episode. I thought it was a touching picture, and I’ll agree that the video is sad too, but I wasn’t expecting the comments that came my way about how devastated people were by that episode, and how much that one picture really touched them.
Anyway, that’s what came to mind when I saw the daily prompt.
