Well Go On…SAY Something!

That is an ORDER.

Ivan Elonginak, Billionaire Giraffe of Destiny, Retreats to the Serenity of His Summer Estate

When Ivan is weary of million-dollar hoofshake deals and cocktails with beautiful models, Ivan takes swim in pool to reflect. Is reflecting pool.

Here, Ivan ponders meaning of his existence. Palatial homes on every continent, two private planes at his command, the adoration of millions of people — is that really all there is?

Alas, the answers do not come, and is time for Ivan to leave. Ivan must tend to his tiny pet Russian millionaire, which he loves very much.

Let Me Clean That For You

Oh, Deer. A man in upstate New York’s camera lens is a bit smudgy, so this critter decides to offer a helping hand, er, tongue.

From Mashable.

OK, THAT’S A New Rule (Updated!)

Earlier today, we mentioned that maybe there should be a new Rule: “If you cover up your eyes with your tail while you’re sleeping, that’s cute.”

Let’s expand that a bit. Hear Ye, Hear Ye. All Rise. This Rule is now ADOPTED as of this date, 07/24/14 at 12:29pm PT: Rule of Cuteness 96: “If your (or someone else’s) ears or tail cover your face for the purposes of sleeping, that’s cute.”

(These little angels/demons are Boots and Petunia. They are sisters from the same litter and have slept together since they were puppies. Boots is the one with the white muzzle.” -J.E.

RULES 1

UPDATE! From Ginette C.: “This is my 6 year old little girl Mia relaxing on my bed, demonstrating new Rule #96.” (Now, strictly speaking- that’s a paw. But we can be flexible.)

#TBT: 4/3/10: Pocket Bun Warmer

Sure you’re warm, but are you WARM ENOUGH? Wouldn’t an extra degree or two of heat make your couch-potato-ing that much better?

In these cases, you should really try…a POCKET BUN!

Christine S., you’re making us feel all warm inside.

Bongiorno, Leonardo Di Cutti

I LOFF these kittehs. But I can’t stop being reminded of Wilford Brimley.

O Canada!

[Note: It helps if you play the music file > below while you read the text in the lower right box. Makes it more sing-songy. But then if you're Canadian, you know how the song goes, eh? -Ed.]

O Canada
