Recently, a friend sent me some pictures from the Comedy Wildlife Photographic Awards from 2017.
OK, when I take shots of wildlife, my objective is to understand their world — not to poke fun at it.
Yet, have I ever taken a picture worthy of showing on comedy wildlife? Likely not. However, among the 2017 winners there is a picture of a (female) fox piddling in a golf hole. Devoid of the caption, (“Must have a three putter” — Huh?) is it funny? Hard to say. Incongruous is probably a better description.
Now, I have taken a number (to my mind of non-funny) of shots of animals pooping (context may matter here): a moose piddling and birds defecating. Could it be that someone would find one of them funny?
The closest I could come is this picture of a coyote.
A coyote expresses contempt for humanity by pooping in the middle of a highway (8 May 2015).
