Well, allow me to introduce you to Bonzo, a BIG BOYE™ with a *VERY* peculiar quirk...
...he likes to carry around dumbbells.
"My niece was over and she didn't believe me that Bonzo actually carried around weights," Derek Plante, Bonzo's owner, told BuzzFeed. "I usually have to hide them from him, but this one time, I let him do it to show her."
Plante's niece, @portugi_bruja, ended up tweeting the video, and unsurprisingly, it went viral! It also managed to strike both fear and admiration in the hearts of many:
Some people were a little concerned about Bonzo's teeth given his dumbbell infatuation, but Plante's niece was quick to dispel the worries, and also make a pretty good point:
And besides, Bonzo doesn't get to play with his ~sacred dumbbell~ often, and the few times he does, Plante says he "just carries it for a little and then sits down with it and licks it."
So overall, I think it's pretty safe to say that Bonzo is doing great and just might be the herculean hero that 2020 so desperately needs.
