Oh, Those Naughty Young Rapscallions…

…always up to some devilment or another. If they’re not dropping cherry bombs in the septic tank, they’re setting the mailman on fire. I wonder what mischievous adventure those two ruffians are up to now?

Hey Carl, check it out--there's this cool trick I wanna play on the dog.

Some vintage cute from the archives at The Commons at Flickr.

    Mischief afoot, indeed!!!

  2. They are playing, lets lynch the keeper a fun game for all the family.

  3. I wouldn’t trust ’em as far as I could throw ’em!

    See!? See what can happen when God gives out opposible thumbs!!

  5. I love the smile on the one on the left! (Maybe smiling at some mayhem caused by him/herself, along with partner in crime?)

    One on the right looks like, “Hmmmm, what have we here…?”

    The little one’s the brains, the bigger one’s the brawn, LOL

  8. I read the title too fast at first, and thought it said “Those Naughty Young Republicans.”

    Oh yeah we got some little miscief makers here… that is for sure….:: checks chair for whoopie cushion before sitting down::

  10. PS, I have seen baby gorillas in the state-of-the-art gorilla exhibish in the Bronx Zoo, and they are truly sweet creatures. You would never stay as still for your mama picking bugs off you, as these little guys do. 😛

    we had a couple hoodlum neighborhood boys where I grew up that resembled these two.

    Theresa – Me too!

    But then after seeing the word rapscallions I knew it was a NTMTOM post without even having to read further. 🙂

  13. I love love love their faces. I really wish I knew what happened next.

  14. PS These little guys look pretty scallywaggish, too. 😀
