Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

One of those days. One of those mornings. One of those mornings after the night before. This is the stuff of Hungover Owls, a popular Tumblr photo blog.

The Daily Dot featured the account last August, but just try to imagine our excitement when we discovered they had an actual hungover owl GIF stored up in its archives!

This poor, palpably hungover Great Horned Owl is obviously having a not-so-great morning, awakening to find himself bound in leather trusses, whirled back and forth for the cameras by a malevolent-looking, gum-chewing stranger. It’s like coming to in the middle of a Nature Channel special directed by David Lynch.

Not that we haven’t all been there, of course.

It’s received 1,360 sympathetic and somewhat dyspeptic notes so far.
