Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
It turns out dogs aren’t very good at stuff. Most of these are funnier if you don’t think about how their owners put them in these situations, whereupon they become kind of disturbing. Except the chess one, which just gets funnier the more you think about it. I’m pretty sure that’s the fewest possible moves you can get checkmated in. (Thanks Ross.)
roburky: A lot of those images seem to actually be of dogs succeeding at their chosen task. Although those tasks are stuff like licking out of a jar, drinking from the toilet and sniffing another dog's bottom.
Tom Francis: Fair point, and in many of the others, it's not clear what the Faildog's objective was. However, I'm prepared to claim that Spaghetti Faildog, at least, has failed at something.
There's a great comment on that one, actually, a little way down:
"Staged, sure looks like it, but a non-faildog would have refused to participate."
Sir, I will not sit in your spaghetti pot! Do you take me for some manner of Faildog?
The_B: LOLCats, FAILDogs - what's next?
C Livingston: LuzrLemurz?
Tom Francis: Surely ROFLrats?
LmaoLlamas? BRBbaboons? FFSferrets? Terrapins FTW?
C Livingston: Humpback Fails?
Tom Francis: Thread win!
tentaculat: FFSFerrets has potential imo.
Tim E: OMGeckos will be absolutely awesome.
That was supposed tto be a pun on zoology. I don't think it came off well...
Sam: You don't happen to have four legs, a tail, and answer to the name "Rover", do you, B?
The_B: Please read the following in the style of Richard Nixon. For added comedy effect. (Bonus for picturing the Futurama version)
"I am not a dog."
