Artist Shows What Would Happen If Humans Flirted Like Animals, And It’s Hilarious

Telling someone, you’re interested usually involves quite a few corny pick-up lines, awkward glances, and stiff flirting. Wouldn’t it be easier if we, humans picked our partners the same way animals do? For example, male Galapagos turtles ideas on how to flirt are pretty simple – they stretch their necks, and whoever has the longest, wins the female. And in many penguin species, being flirty constitutes of presenting the female with a pebble. Plain and straightforward. But before you yell “somebody should make a funny animal comic about it,” hold on. Artist Ben Hed already did. The illustrator and character designer from Minnesota have put together a series, answering the questions “How to find a girlfriend the animal way?” and it’s hilarious.

“I’ve been doing Pet Foolery on Instagram for about eight months now, but I’ve been drawing goofy little comics for as long as I can remember,” Ben told Bored Panda.

“My comic ideas seem to gravitate towards animals,” he added. “I live in a house with three dogs, two cats, 15 chickens, and five goats… so that might have something to do with it.”

The artist said that nothing is as rewarding as seeing other people enjoy his comics as much as he does. “Everybody likes funny comics, and everybody likes animals. My scribbles are a combination of both!”

Scroll down to check out the animal flirting examples and tell us in the comments which one of these approaches you’re going to use next time.

I relate to the penguin one the most, because my husband always collects rocks whenever we go hiking/to the beach and gives them to me.
