Hindsight is 20/20

It was the first and last time Irving would agree to give Marge a piggy-back ride.

Good Nat Geo find, Marilyn T.

    Marge’s snuffler is bigger than Irving’s face! So funny!

    If this is an attempt at mating, it’s a hilarious one! XD

  3. earlybird1 says:

    OK, scratch that last comment. It is NOT mating, it’s a male with his pup. Eccchhh. (trying to erase last comment with pencil eraser)

  4. Ah…..my back!!!!

  5. But you’ll look sweet
    With flipper feet
    On a blorpsicle built for two!

  6. *kronche*!!

  7. @ earlybird1

    I was going to ask why there wasn’t an “interspecies snorgling” tag on this post, but you cleared it up for me.

    bebeh seal:
    “Daaaaaaad, get of my back, already, geez! It’s like you don’t trust me or something!”

    Just in time for the Winter Olympics, the Chilean 2-man bobsled team shows its true grit. They’re a shore thing for a medal.

  9. One of my all time favorite elephant seal videos:

    (Walks away, humming the song which USED to be called “Bicycle” Built for Two…)

  13. @ Katiedid´s video: lol


  15. Extreme bulldog puppy close up! This is another live puppy video and right now they have the camera on one sleeping puppy. ADORABLE! http://www.ustream.tv/channel/pelto-bulldogges–puppy-cam

  16. Maaaa!!! He’s touching me again!!!!

  17. Ow!

  18. That would acually be Marge giving Irving the piggyback ride. The female of the species is the one with the regular snoozzz!!!

  19. I was thinking Marge has the snout of a man. I appreciate the video a lot, because I’ve always kind of wanted to go touch the the elephant seals while they’re sleeping. The video reinforces my thought that it wouldn’t really be a good idea.

  20. Well Junior, when a Mummy and Daddy Blorper love each other very much and want to make a baby blorp, they kinda get in this position. Strewth Dad I think I get the idea, now could you get offa me.

  21. “What am I goinbg to do Buffy? Irving wanted ANOTHER piggy back ride last night.”

    I keep looking at Katiedid’s elephant seal vid. If it had just flicked it’s hidquarters……who in their right mind……….. *shakes head and looks disapprovingly over to of glasses* Hilarious though.

  23. bookmonstercats says:

    “Hindquarters” for heaven’s sake.

  24. bookmonstercats says:

    .. and “top” of glasses.

    Time to go home, bookmonstercats.

  25. Don’t forget this video of an elephant seal having some fun with parked cars.

    He looks so cuddly and contented at the end!

  26. As some already pointed out, the big one with the trunk is male. The little (and soon flat one) is female. And its propably and intraspecies snorgling…

    “Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help! I’m being repressed!”

  28. Irving : I am tiny but mighty !!!

    also: BULLDOG PUPPEHS !!!!!!!!! OMG !
    I saw an 8wk old bulldog pup at the pet store this weekend & I think my hubby finally got bulldog fever ! YEA !!!!!!! WANT bulldog pup !!!!

  29. They are smiling, people! Do you see this?? SMILING! So cute.

  30. They’re doing the *nasty*. Save the little girl! She’s going to be kronsched.

    [No they’re *not*. AND you’re abusing my Glossary. 😛 – Ed.]

  31. OMG! Bulldog pups! *dies*

    hahaha – Teeny, I love Monty python.

    Elephant seals are adorable.


    [Except, they’re both of the same species. – Ed.]

  33. They are the same species! They are both elephant seals. The larger one is male, the smaller one is female.


  34. Elephant seals are one of only two animals I file under “Not Cute” (the other being proboscis monkeys) but I have to admit this picture is, indeed, cute.

  35. The one on the bottom goes HALP MEH!

  36. Ehn!

  37. Oh mah gawd the face on the bottom seal is priceless!
