Pugs are basically the greatest animals in the history of ever, which is good news for anyone whose administration is coping with escalating sectarian violence and the imminent threat of civil war!


Okay, so this list is exclusively for Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki because he’s probably super stressed right now and needs to relax. If you are not the Prime Minister, we ask that you stop reading now.

Again, we’d like to reiterate these cute pug pics are just for Nuri Kamal al-Maliki. We’ll post some adorable dog pics next week for everyone else. The PM needs this one, okay? He’s got a lot on his plate and could use the distraction.

Listen, if you’re ever the leader of a region completely mired in sectarian religious violence, let us know and we’ll make you a list of pugs, too. Right now, though, this pug wearing a tiny dress is just for Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, because this is what he needs right now.

Look, Nuri may go down in history as the guy in charge when Iraq ceased to be a country. That’s on his shoulders right now. Think about that. Feeling like kind of an asshole that you’re looking at this photo of this dapper pug now, huh?

Pug on the loose, pug on the loose! If you are not Nuri Kamal al-Maliki and you are still here, you are actively contributing to the destabilization of a very vulnerable region. The PM needs this list to himself to help him unwind. Please, leave.

Once again, if you are not Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, you need to stop looking at this picture of a pug letting it all hang out immediately.

Alright, you’ve had your fun and seen a couple adorable pug pics. But the rest of these are just for Nuri, okay? Please respect that.

If you need to look at photos of pugs that badly, look at any other website on the internet or just Google “Cute Pugs!” Let the Prime Minister of Iraq have this one, please.

Are you still here? Jesus Christ, what are you still doing here? Okay, fine. Prime Minister, if you want a PDF of this slideshow you can enjoy without these other assholes ruining it, email us and we’ll send it to you as an attachment immediately. We deeply apologize.
