We're kinda with the pug on this one.

It's not often the perfect photo op just pops into your life, but you certainly have a better chance of it happening if you own this terrifying shirt and mask combination.

The man behind the mask is Mark Potts, and his apprehensive sidekick is Gizmo T. Pug. They are perfect together:

Mark, bless him, is fully aware of how upsetting this picture is.

"The pug shirt was a funny gift from my wife, while the pug mask was a funny gift from me to her; and the night she got the mask I got this idea," Mark says. They knew what needed to be done.

However, they couldn't have predicted that Gizmo would have, well, a pretty appropriate reaction.

"[My wife] took it and then somehow it ended up everywhere," Mark says. "I'm glad it's brought joy and slight fear to millions around the world.”

Yes, equal parts joy and fear. That sounds about right.
