Does Form follow function?
Let's discuss.
( Feel free to add your own pictures. )

I tend to disagree. The form is there BEFORE the function, definitely.

Giselle, it appears as though you have a pair of synchronized $hitters there, how clever!

These guys need to practice a little more.  One finished a little early.  Would never show well in the brace class.

That poor dog with the bunny ears.  Mastiffs are supposed to look distinguished.  That poor dog never had a chance.  Caught in a compromising position and certainly not mastiff like ears.  LOL  I guess I'll have to share too.   LOL

I've learned one thing from all of these pictures.......

 

Namely, it's one way of achieving... "INSTANT ANGULATION!"
