So, which makes you more sad? Is it the news that Justin Bieber’s pet hamster has died, or the fact that a dead rodent is the number one trending topic on Twitter in the United States?
To be honest, we don’t even know if PAC is actually dead. If so, old age seems to have been the culprit.
Perhaps it’s just the shock, but the fact that a hamster’s passing has drawn so much attention seems to have inspired some self-awareness.
Am I the only one who thinks we sound selfish for #RIPpac trend?People are dying as we speak because of serious reasons and a hamster REALLY

The fact that the top trend is about Justin Biebers dead hamster makes me want to snort a line of gun powder and light up my nose. #RIPpac
