No one is entirely sure when or how it happened, but Corgis have become the “it” dog of the Internet. Although they’ve long been celebrated oversees (Queen Elizabeth famously raised Corgis her entire life; the last from her original lineage, Willow, just crossed the rainbow bridge last week), they’ve only recently become popular here since taking over social media. Credit their stubby legs or their tailless ‘tocks — these waddling wonders have won the hearts of even the most cynical anonymous commenters.
But it’s not just the pups; their humans, too, have become categorically beloved. Perhaps its because those who have these curious little canines are often left-of-center themselves. But no matter how quirky, there are nine universal truths that apply to every single person who has a Corgi — and here they are, in no particular order.
You’ve been known to play cornhole for two hours straight.
Your boss put it out at the company picnic just for a side game of fun. Little did she realize you would be challenging every single coworker, trying to score beanbags in the hole all day long.
Your all-time favorite TV show is Friends.
Sure, maybe it’s a little too popular, and yeah, maybe things really tanked around season 8. But anytime that Apothecary Table episode comes on, your devotion to Rachel and co. is renewed.
You gossip with strangers while stretching before yoga.
Sure, you’re supposed to be all quiet and meditative and introspective and serious, but you just really, really need to talk about those weird cut-out leggings the teacher is wearing today.
You’ve worn a Cardi B shirt to a Nicki Minaj concert.
It’s not that you’re necessarily trying to start sh*t, it’s just that you’re a fan of both and you want to rep for all your fave WOC performers in one fell swoop.
You’ve played some pretty good pranks on your friends.
And we’re not talking amateur, saran-wrap-on-the-toilet-seat kinda stuff. We’re talking months-deep long cons that involve masked phone numbers and pie deliveries.
…but only you are allowed to play pranks on your friends.
If anyone else tries to mess with your besties, you go into protective mama bear mode.
Your favorite soft drink is root beer.
Whenever you’re at a serve-yourself beverage station, you cannot fathom why anyone would choose cola or lemon-lime when there is root beer just sitting there like manna from heaven.
You started the bath sheet movement in your family.
Your significant other, your siblings, and your parents were all buying normal-sized towels like suckers. Then you introduced them to the luxury of bath sheets (10” bigger on each side — who wouldn’t want that?!) and your friends and family have been thanking you ever since.
You are universally beloved by everyone you meet.
Although some of the characteristics outlined above may not be everyone’s cup of tea, you are, on the whole, a true delight — and pretty much everyone on planet earth agrees.
