Breaking down the best slapstick GIF in the history of the internet
Must read article...

I'm going to cut the preamble here and get straight to the chase: what the hell is going on in this GIF? How did it all happen? Did a troupe of butterflies flap their wings really hard on the other side of the planet, and through the Super Chaos Theory cause this everyman's Cirque du Soleil? I don't even know where this comes from (I saw it on Twitter), or who filmed it, but I want to know what is going on. I need to know. Let's Zapruder this GIF.

First, let's count the players: five in total, four humans and one dog. Going in a clockwise motion from the guy in the center of the shot below, we have: a) The Faller, b) The Spiller, c) The Hitter, d) Dog, and e) The Stander.

First thing is figuring out what's going on, and the answer is: a whole lot of chilling. We've got C, The Hitter, who looks like he's having a bit of a snack, sitting on the curb, and looking at the plaintive knee-pawing of D, Dog. The Faller and The Stander are both in the background, sharing a bench (for now), with the Stander also taking an interest in Dog (major plot point here).

The Spiller enters from the doorway, and for reason unclear to us he's carrying a pan of water. Is it hot? Is it cold? Was he planning on dumping it on someone in the first place? Some mysteries are just not meant to be understood: they're koans, questions that plant doubt in our mind, and lead us to enlightenment.

Or the simple answer: water is for the dog

This is what happens when your kids don't have iPhones to stare at 24/7; thank goodness for Pokemon GO!

GOAT gif is either Swaggy P 3 ball or Kobe/Barnes. This is not up for debate.

good stuff. The stander is the only one who escapes unscathed. Well, he and the dog.

Easy...stander gets up and unbalances chair, faller knocks into spiller and soaks hitter. Water was for dog.

Don't reference a gif and not post it, shitheads. You know the rules.

Why you replying to me? I posted the GIF in question in my OP.

Just because you were the OP and there were several who didn't so I just replied to the first post.
