#PureSilliness: Ellen Page renames all the dogs on the internet

(Yahoo!) - Ellen Page is doggone obsessed with pet names.

The X-Men: Days of Future Past has brought her apparent favorite pastime — renaming dogs! — to Twitter. And while the 27-year-old merely started doing it for fans, some other celebrities, including Lena Dunham and Kate Mara, were brought in on the action, too.

Here's the tweet that started it all:

From there, a flurry of her followers asked to be a part of her "total jerk"-iness by coming up with new names for their four-legged friends:

Some were even given celeb names:

The fun wasn't limited to pooches. She also renamed a cat:

And a shark. Well, sorta:

Her new game quickly won celebrity fans, including Anna Kendrick:

Page then randomly offered up name suggestions for Kate Mara's dogs:

And Lena Dunham asked to get in on the action, submitting a photo of her adopted dog, Lamby, in bed with her boyfriend, Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff.

After two days of this taking over her Twitter feed, Page admitted that things seem to have spiraled out of control. Late Tuesday night she posted:

Well, we hope it never stops. We agree with Anna Kendrick — looking at dog pix and giving them silly names? This is exactly what the internet is for. Carry on, friend.
