April Fool!

The Huffington Post has steered us to many of the cute videos you’ve squeed to on C.O., and we’ve wanted to thank them in the worst way — and we think you’ll agree, that spoof page was it. Seriously, we can’t get e-nuff of April Fool’s Day, and hope you enjoyed this year’s prank. Thanks to Meg, Pyrit and Crazy Pants for adding jokes and pics, and Arianna Huffington for not suing. Until next year…

DON’T…


STOP…


LAUGHING!

Hungry Happy Harry Hippo Holds Handsome Honker Hilariously

Hard to believe anyone would reject this cuddly blorper, but that’s just what Harry the Pygmy Hippo’s mother did, so keepers at a wildlife sanctuary in South Africa raised him by hand ’round the clock. Looks like he has an effective way of telling you when it’s time for a feeding, too.

Three Bells and All’s Well

(Hmm… everything looks quiet in the castle courtyard… Guards asleep at their posts as usual… Squire Blorfington just ducked into the serving girls’ quarters; I can’t believe he thinks he’s keeping that a secret… Some cats camping out in the forest, carving bows and arrows… Probably out hunting, that’s nice…)

THIS JUST IN: The Teeniest McRibbersons

Futurity.org is reportin’ that a teeny tiny mcfroggersons was discovered in Papua New Guinea! The story goes:

When two Cornell University undergraduates and a recent graduate went on a field research trip to Papua New Guinea in 2008, little did they know it would lead to entries in the Guinness Book of World Records and a groundbreaking research paper.

On his knees poking at a millipede, Grundler heard a clicking sound he and others had previously assumed was crickets, but turning his head, he saw a tiny frog inflating its vocal sack… The adult males reach an average size of 8.5 millimeters.

I Am Art

Notice the light? The depth of field? The capture of disapproval mixed with a questioning brow? I may not be the artist, but I am most certainly the muse.


Pardon me, but I, too, am art. The background is perfectly blurred to contrast against my light fur. My large eyes reflect light and draw the eyes of the viewer up to the top of the frame. This photo lingers in the mind, because it raises the question, “What is she looking at?”


Hey! I’m also amused!

Faaaabuluus!!! Whomevah came up with the idea of a soft fur-like chick-kons is a genius. THIS is “Gordon” the silkeh rooster (he prolly knows how to accessorize, make a foofy cocktail and debate fabric samples too.) Excellent roostering, Shari E.
