Trippin’ Jingle Balls, Man

Well, this explains a few things: According to noted pharmacological journal The Sun, reindeer and other animals eat “magic mushrooms” in order to “experience altered states of consciousness.” Like, say, pulling a sleigh through the sky.

    but some people just dream of having a puggie
    who will allow them to put a puffy set of
    reindeer antlers on its head. That would work fine for me!!

    Awww! Rocket is a great reindeer name! Happy Holidays, CO friends! I love you all! 🙂

  3. Rudolph in the Sky with Diamonds!

  4. Sure, sure, put the cute reindeer antlers on the pug, take a photo (you’ve got plenty of time), and submit it to CuteOverload.

    You want a real challenge? Try putting a Santa hat on a cat and snapping a photo.

    Like, whoa, man.

  6. “Whoa.. I feel like I have…no NOSE.. it’s weeeeeird…”

  7. Yay for Blue Meanies!!!

    Wait… What?

  8. I once dreamt I was a tripping reindeer that dreamt he was a pug. When I woke I had a sleigh bells on my body and the taste of cat litter in my mouth.

  9. which brings to mind that personal favourite of mine for the season, The Vestibules’ classic “Christmas on Acid”…

  10. Some of us are not that brave…..(also, some of us tend to bleed easily….)

  11. Rudolph has competition.

  12. Rocket the red nosed pug dog
    had a very shiney nose
    and if you ever saw it
    you would even say it glows

  13. Awwwww What a baby ! I managed to get a hat on two of my seven but it was a much smaller hat. Too bad the hat never stayed on long enough to get a pic. :o(

  14. I submit an alternate theory: Maybe the magic mushrooms are what grant reindeer the ability to fly.

  15. Duuuuuude where’s my sleigh!

  16. Or how about gift-wrapping a cat?
