Brian Ashcraft of Kotaku is reporting that “dogs wearing pantyhose” is a popular new meme in China. He writes that Hong Kong site Sharp Daily has reported that users on the Chinese social network Weiboare uploading gag photos of their dogs wearing panty hose, joking how ‘sexy’ the mutts look.”

According to Chinese site Sina, “bored” people on Weibo started the meme. Apparently, Weibo user Ulatang, who noted that the pets rolled their eyes after getting dressed in pantyhose, uploaded the first “dogs wearing pantyhose” pic (above). That image has been commented on over 16,000 times in China.

Self-taught street photographer Tao Liu documents life in the Chinese city of Hefei in delightful photos that showcase his sharp eye and mischievous sense of humor. In addition to giving a sense of everyday life in urban China, Liu’s images are rife with visual gags and tongue-in-cheek framing. As TIME reports, Liu was catapulted from obscurity back in October, when one of his images went viral on the Chinese social network, Sina Weibo.
