You know that feeling where you’re laying on your couch and you start eating a doughnut and you know you should probably sit up so you don’t choke on the sprinkles but you don’t because you feel really relaxed so you just lie there?

This tortoise knows exactly how that feels.

Look at this tortoise. It could not be bothered to turn over. It does not “g a f,” as the kids say.


When you think about it, this little guy represents every brand of laziness in the world.

The Stoner Chill

“Yooo, this bud is dope, dude. But can we go get some Taco Bell too?”


The Millennial Sloth

“I’m fine just like this. I can make this work.” 


The Aristocrat Apathy

“Ernesto, I really am quite fine. Leave me be whilst I devour this delectable morsel from the garden.”
